    Sounds promising, but why do they have to be so graphic as to constipation and gastritis is concerned? Amitabh?! What is the world coming to?

      I agree, Ashok. I’m not really looking forward to this movie, and I’m definitely not going to eat anything while watching it!

          Thanks for the link, Ashok. I suspect all the scatological humor in Bollywood these days is another unfortunate import from Hollywood.

    Sometimes the joy indeed lies in trying out something new, and Piku is just the tonic.
