By now, most of us have already seen the PIKU Trailer. But we thought of looking into it a little closer & look for tell tale PURE BONG material! We were pleasantly surprised!
What follows, are 14 things that should make every Bong smile about the PIKU trailer! It is also a little about us tipping our hat to Mr Shoojit Sircar & his soon to release creation!
THE BEARDED, PART DEAF BUT STRAIGHT TALKING DADU
The Big B as a Bengali dadubhai?
Chokhe jol eshe gelo…
THE SCENES ON CALCUTTA STREETS
I know that street !
That’s how your Bong friend will shout in a Bengaluru movie hall !
DEEPIKA – THE NEW BANGAALAN
Move aside Bidya Madam… Deepika eshe geche!
THE ANGRY BONG GIRL
Those fiery eyes…
If you know a Bong woman, then you know what we are talking about!
THE MOTION vs EMOTION –
If you don’t know what this chair is, go ask a Bong!
The GANGAR GHAT & JETTY
(with a CHICKEN ROLL!)
A jetty, a boy & a girl & chicken roll – A Calcutta Love story ?
THE LOOSE HAVANA CAP
That’s how most Bong gents still carry their cool!
THE QUINTESSENTIAL HOWRAH BRIDGE
A new angle, leaves you wondering “Where was the cameraman standing?”
THE IRRITABLE (still lovely!) MOUSHUMI-MASHIMA
You know that expression if you have even one aunt who scolds you for random reasons!
THE LAAL DALAAN & ALPONA
This IS Bengal! This is how an angaan/courtyard ought to look like!
This is where most Bongs got inspiration for their poetry
(also romanced the parar sundori!)
ARTWORKS IN A BENGALI HOME
Bongs love art. PERIOD.
And when you see Ramkrishna deb, Sarada Maa & Raja Ravi Varma artwork on a wall, you bow to Mr Sircar for his excellent eye for detail!
(CIRCULAR RAIL IN KOLKATA)
YES, the local train line runs parallel to the Ganga in Calcutta!
Beat that Mumbai!
