A Barfi that must be tasted
Bareilly ki Barfi is a film directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari. The trailer of this film had an instant connection with me. I had been dying to see this film. And finally when I saw it I can say that this film was what I had expected of it.

Plot: Bitti’s life is changed when she reads a novel named ‘Bareilly ki Barfi’.

Story and direction: Loving the director’s previous venture ‘Nil Battey Sannata’, I was quite optimistic of this film. Firstly, I loved Javed Akhtar’s narration. He gives life to this film with his voice. Then the setting of the film. This is the India that every person knows. You have a supportive father and a nagging mother. When we see a girl being something different, we tend to draw conclusions. This film has correctly portrayed the mentality and thinking of the Indian people. The boys, Chirag and Pritam, are both very different from each other. While Chirag is the heartbroken and cool, Pritam is the meek and shy person. All the characters of the film are like they live around you in your neighbourhood. The comedy, although in bits and pieces, doesn’t bore you and keeps a smile on your face. You can see the writers and director’s vision for the film, which never fades or never there is a dilution of that vision. But however, there were certain things that pinched me in the film. After one hour of the film passed, I felt that it kind of stopped for some 25-30 minutes. Nothing was happening in the film.

Performances: Ayushmann Kkhurana once again does it. He proves that if he chooses the right script, he can do wonders. Kriti Sanon for the first time I felt acted. She gave her 100% that clearly reflected on screen. Rajkummar Rao was the little cherry on that icing of the cake. The shift of character that he has from the soft meek person to the rowdy and daring person is phenomenal. Pankaj Tripathi and Seema Pahwa impressed too.

Music: Normally, a film with 5 music directors doesn’t fare that well in terms of music. But every song in this film is good in its own way. I didn’t consider any song bad. Ashwiny Tiwari knows how to incorporate the correct music for the correct mood in the film. ‘Nazm Nazm’ by Arko was my favorite track of the film.

Favorite Scene: It would be the scene where Chirag tells Pritam to put into practice what Chirag taught him. Then he parks his bike on the middle of the road, takes a pan from the shop and tells the other people honking to just chill and not trouble him. The shift in Pritam’s character was so awesome that I could take this scene out from my mind.

Verdict: This film goes on to show that with the right content, cast and crew, a film can work wonders. I hope Ashwiny Tiwari brings us more films like these.

I am going with an 8.5/10.

A movie which got everything on point. Be it the timing, songs etc. The visuals and locations of the movie are amazing to the level that can make one forget tha he/she is watching a movie. Ayushmann Khurana and Rajkummar Rao, both actors are looking as if they are tailer made for their roles. The actress, Kriti Sanon is not as fantastic as the male leads, but is not dissapinting either. She did a fair job. The main highlight of the film is Pankaj Tripathi as 'bittis's' father. He braught his acting chops to the table in the best manner possible. A lovely movie with great entertainment, genuine feelings, authenticity and amazing songs is what this movie should be called :)

A refreshing romance...
Some movies leave you wanting for more. Bareilly ki Barfi is one such movie. The movie has a nice story with a beautiful soundtrack. The cast of the movie is what makes the movie awesome.
Ayushmann and Kriti Sanon have a great chemistry. You can feel the emotions of a one-sided lover by the way Ayushmann portrays it. The supporting cast is also nice. Comic timings of the actors is fabulous. But it is Rajmummar Rao who steals the show by his excellent portrayal of Vidrohiji. He proves his mettle again and shows one that he is no less than a terrific actor. The songs never feel forced into the movie. they just naturally pass by and leave you humming the tunes as you leave the hall.
Go savour the sweet Barfi of Bareilly, for you will regret if you miss this one.#mustWatch

A simple desi entertaining rom-com Bollywood needed for quite some time. The cast was great and everybody did justice to their character. Noteworthy performances by Rak Kumar Rao and Seema Pahwa (Bitti's mother). The father daughter chemistry is refreshing. If you liked Tannu Weds Mannu you will definitely enjoy it.
