Shoojit Sircar Movies Ranked Worst to Best:

6Gulabo Sitabo

Gulabo Sitabo

Welcome to the world of Gulabo Sitabo where two slimy scheming foxes in a game of one-upmanship, each one attracting other members to their clan and each one with an agenda of his own.

Meet ‘Mirza’ (Amitabh Bachchan) – a 78-year-old landlord who would move heaven and earth for his most prized possession – an old dilapidated mansion in the heart of Lucknow. But this garden of roses comes with its own cluster of ‘pricky thorns’ – tenants.

Amongst them most prominently, ‘Baankey’ (Ayushmann Khuranna)’ a shrewd, sly and squatted tenant, who matches Mirza a bit for a bit in their ceaseless bantering.

Gulabo Sitabo is a quirky slice of life where Mirza and Baankey are like Tom and Jerry – unique and unmatched, friend and foe, naughty and smart, little and large, all combine to produce chaos.

5Yahaan

...Yahaan

‘Yahaan’ is a love story between an army man and a local girl set in the troubled valley of Kashmir. Directed by adman Shoojit Sircar, who debuts as a movie director, ‘Yahaan’ could have been an engrossing tale but due to intermittent slackening of pace, some loose editing and story not moving forward at a few places, the impact gets diluted in an otherwise well-shot film.

Thankfully the movie, in spite of being heavily revolving around an army camp in Kashmir, doesn’t indulge in pseudo-patriotism and sticks to its basic subject.

How much better the final outcome would have been only if the love story woven around the two principal characters could have been more impacting. Because this is where the movie suffers the most – you just don’t feel for the lovers to a degree where you could empathize with their situation!

4Vicky Donor

Vicky Donor

Dr. Baldev Chaddha (Anu Kapoor), a well-qualified fertility expert, runs a fertility clinic and a sperm bank in Dariyaganj, New Delhi, that guarantees high quality and specialized sperm for the purpose. Unfortunately, he has more failed cases to his credit than successes.

As luck would have it, a small brawl in the colony brings Dr. Chaddha and Vicky face to face, where Chaddha, concludes that Vicky could be THAT donor he has been looking for.

From here on, Chaddha’s days and nights are spent in convincing Vicky to become a donor until he finally gives in. Vicky finds his love interest in Ashima Roy (Yami Gautam), a pretty Bengali girl who works in a bank.

2Piku

Piku

Piku (Deepika Padukone) is an independent, intelligent, short-tempered woman with liberated thoughts. She lives in Delhi with her widowed father, Bhaskor Banerjee, who is in his early 70s. Bhaskor da (Amitabh Bachchan) is an old grumpy man who is troubled by the problem of constipation.

Irritated by the difficult bowel issues, Bhaskor da is always discussing, conversing, examining it not only with Piku but with every single person he meets. Amidst the family chaos, there is Rana Chaudhary (Irrfan Khan) who is the owner of Himachal Cab Company. His company provides cab service to the Banerjee family.

The plot executes how Piku manages the home and office while taking complete responsibility for her cantankerous yet adorable father. Their life story moves forward unless one day when Bhaskor da collapses due to over drinking at a relative’s party.

It is when the old stubborn father decides to visit his childhood place in Calcutta, and yes, by road! As no driver is ready to drive the annoying father-daughter Jodi to another city, Rana decides to take the charge.

During the journey, Rana and Piku get to know each other quite well. This quirky tale which is so inclined to motion is an emotional journey depicting the real and everyday facts of a father-daughter duo.
