Fortunately, there exist a few shows and films that remind us of the same while casting old age in a fresh light.

The movie takes you on a journey, literally, when Piku Banerjee (Deepika Padukone) and her 70-year-old widowed father, Bhashkor (Amitabh Bachchan) travel from Delhi to Kolkata, driven by Rana (Irrfan Khan). The core of the story is Piku dealing with her father’s bowel issues. For those taking care of their elderly parents, this film hits where it hurts.
