PIHU - A short film’s content presented as a 93 minutes painfully long, avoidable movie. [TTP (To The Point) Review by Bobby Sing]

Novel and worth trying experiments are always welcome in the world of off-beat cinema. But before trying them, a self-assessment also needs to be made, that whether the chosen idea is even worth going ahead as a full length feature film or not.
Sadly, the assessment completely went wrong in this case, as PIHU is nothing but a 10 minute short film’s compelling idea, unnecessarily presented as a 93 minutes long, painfully tiring film that keeps annoying constantly post its initial 15 minutes. Contrary to what at least should have been there in the film, PIHU neither engages as a scary, horrifying situational movie nor turns out to be an emotionally heart wrenching, shocking drama as per its subject. 
Based on a rare, unfortunate real life incident wherein a two year old girl is left all alone in a high-rise apartment with everything within her reach including the open balcony, PIHU doesn’t involve the viewer, which remains its major drawback throughout as who would like to watch a two year old helpless girl crying and doing various things in an apartment for more than 90 minutes.
Directed by Vinod Kapri, PIHU can also be called an unrequired, sadist film that is mix of famous English comedy HOME ALONE, Vikramaditya Motwane’s TRAPPED and Chetan Anand’s AAKHIRI KHAT, making no sense whatsoever and coming not even close to any of these three.
Honestly, the only positive in this meaningless attempt is the adorable child, Myra – who is a complete natural and never appears to be conscious of the camera or the unit people standing in front of her. And that is the only achievement of the makers, I suppose.

Rating : 1.5 / 5
