Pihu, based on true events, is a film about a 2 year old girl trapped in an apartment alone. It is an emotionally riveting thriller which is sure to intrigue audiences. This is the first of its kind film to have only a 2 year old protagonist throughout the entire duration of the film. Pihu releases in cinemas, 16 November.

Verdict: Little Pihu will trigger your most heightened state of worry. Ever since we first got word of journalist-turned-filmmaker Vinod Kapri’s second feature film, we’ve been waiting to know more with bated breath. Titled Pihu, the edge-of-the-seat drama features one sole protagonist - two-year-old Myra Vishwakarma. Produced by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP Pictures and Siddharth Roy Kapur, the ... ...Read full review
At 96-minutes, Pihu grips you by the neck and doesnt let your bat an eyelid. However, it could have helped a whole lot if it had a tighter second half. ...Read full review
This unusual thriller has all the elements you`d expect from a film that can attain cult status. In all fairness, the story does throw up a few nail-biting moments, too. But the inconsistent writing and direction by Vinod Kapri robs the movie of its desired impact. With a little more attention to detail and conviction, this one could have been a terrific experience. ...Read full review
Director Vinod Kapri has an ambitious premise and a wonderful lead Pihu, played by Myra Vishwakarma, is a natural born star. Of course, she isnt acting here. Shes just being. Vinod and cameraman Yogesh Jaini capture her as she is. Her laughter and tears and confusion are real. But Vinod places on her a burden that proves too big for her tiny shoulders she has to keep us gripped for 93 minutes. ...Read full review
Hold on, maybe this is what Vinod Kapri is getting at: the irrevocable breakdown of communication, literal or figurative, in our increasingly urbanised lives. A phone conks off when most needed, a plane loses network once airborne, and a disgruntled neighbor refuses to help because she was uninvited to a party. The film certainly lacks the sophistication of a taut social thriller, but it does deliver a serious moral payoff in its own unsubtle way. ...Read full review
The biggest victory for Kapri, who has also written the screenplay of Pihu, is that he manages to carve out a full-fledged film from a concept that could well have been rejected after being labelled as a short-film idea. To keep his film afloat, he does resort to some unwarranted creative liberties but I assume that he has a legit reason for each one of them. ...Read full review
Perhaps the only reason you stay with the film until the end is little Myra Vishwakarma in the role of Pihu, who doesnt betray a hint of self-consciousness in front of the camera. It would be a stretch to call it a performance, but Myras natural delivery and responses to situations keep you invested even when the film doesnt. ...Read full review
