After watching the film Kumar Vishwash (Poet & Former AAP leader) said, “Vinod Kapri has done an incredible job with a 2 year old. I am happy to see people like Vinod who are capable of making a story out of a real event. Especially when people are more influenced by the big banners, a film like this with only one character that to a child is very unique. I congratulate Mr Siddhart Roy Kapur and Vinod Kapri for this film.”
Sharing his experience after the film Rajiv Shukla (IPL commissioner & Congress Leader) says, “I was not expecting that this film will be such a shocker; it takes time for you to absorb the incidents happening in the film. The girl has done a fantastic job and it is worth showing on an international platform.”
Elated by the responses Director Vinod Kapri shares, “For me, every story should have a message to convey. Pihu is a story of every household and this was a very important story to tell. The most difficult part was to bring this story to the audience and I thank Mr Siddharth Roy Kapur and Ronnie Screwvala for supporting me and my film. People who love their family should go a watch this film.”
Producer Siddharth Roy Kapur shares, “When we saw it for the first time, we were blown away completely. It is such a unique idea that Vinod Kapri made a whole film with 2 year old child. He has kept it so gripping, so edge of the seat, it’s like a thriller but a very emotional film at the same time and I think our audience will find it a very unique experience. I am happy to be associated with the production now. Ronnie Screwvala and I both watched it and decided that this is something we would definitely have to back.”
Pihu’s trailer has been appreciated by people across the globe by reaching over 7.5 million views. Pihu is a thriller about 2 years old girl trapped in an apartment alone. It is one of a kind in every aspect as it is the only film in the history of cinema to have just one character throughout, played by a 2 year old child.
