Pihu Trailer Review: It Looks Like The New Millennial Aakhri Khat!

Making an entire feature  film that revolves around a 2-year old girl is not easy. In fact to even suggest such a venture to any producer  would require nerves  of steel.

And yet  scribe-turned-filmmaker  Vinod Kapri has  done it. The trailer  of Pihu is  not just a film about a 2-year old girl’s survival instincts when she’s left alone in her home, it also  unfolds  like  a trueblue thriller(with an over-punctuated  background score), with routine  sounds in the house such as the  sound of the phone in the living room  or  the the swish of  the cooking range in the kitchen acquiring a menacing dimension.

I don’t think we’ve seen  anything like Pihu before. There was  of course  Chetan  Anand’s Aakhri Khat where a 1-year old is separated  from his parents. He roams around Mumbai  aimlessly somehow surviving in  a  city that  sometimes falls short of compassion.

In Pihu director Vinod Kapri has used confined spaces to define the  little girl’s curiosity bewilderment and shock. This film promises to  be everything that Home Alone wasn’t. Disturbing and heartrending.
