Soojit Sircar’s last outing Piku received a lot of love. After a gap of almost 3 years, a similar finesse was expected from his latest October as well. Indeed the romantic drama has managed to impress both critics and the audiences.
October follows the story of two hotel management trainees, Dan (Dhawan) and Shiuli (Sandhu) and their struggle through daily life. A Tragedy ensues when Shiuli meets with an unfortunate accident. Dan, who had been more or less of an acquaintance to Shiuli earlier, now becomes a constant support for her and her family.
