The movie “Piku” and it’s stand against the Patriarchy

Piku (Deepika Padukone) takes a glass of wine at a reception for her aunt Chhobi Maashi and attempts to keep her father, Bhaskor Banerjee (Amitabh Bachchan), from doing the same. As the two settle into what they believe is a family gathering, Chhobi Maashi (Moushumi Chatterjee) has other plans: she wants Piku, who co-owns an architecture business in Delhi, to marry a nice boy called Sourab. Bhaskor refuses to leave the conversation when she summons him.
