Barfi!- Movie Review


I was super eager to watch the Ranbir Kapoor starrer Barfi! because of how awesome it looked from all the promos. Here’s what I think.

Barfi (Ranbir Kapoor) plays a lovable and full of life deaf and mute guy who is in love with Shruti. She feels the same but because of parental pressure; she succumbs and marries a normal guy who’s rich. Then, Barfi meets Jhilmil, a simple girl who is mentally challenged. Years later, Barfi bumps into Shruti and sparks fly again, this time only from Shruti’s side. I will not disclose more than this.

Let me be completely honest with you. I am disappointed. Yup! The story is simple and nice and the treatment is good but the pace is not how I imagined. Yes, the background music and comedy is good but the screenplay is a bit of a drag. In the course of the movie, you’ll be looking for the direction the film is going in. I really liked the production design and look of the film though and Anurag Basu has directed the film well with whatever content he had in hand.

Ranbir Kapoor, as usual shines with his performance. He’s effortlessly lovable and totally convinces you that he is indeed Barfi! and no one can play it better than him. Priyanka Chopra’s performance is shockingly superb! I can say it’s her best performance till date because there wasn’t even a spoonful of Priyanka I could see in her acting. She’s played the character of Jhilmil very very well and even looks it! Ileana D’Cruz was also quite decent in her acting and looks so delicate and skinny that Priyanka looks like Tuntun in comparison. All the other actors also have acted well.

The music by Pritam is different and refreshing, especially the song that plays before the movie starts with the credits. I like the title song and another one that has a bit of a classical edge to it.

So, Barfi! is sweet as the name suggests with outstanding performances from Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor who definitely deserve awards.  Only, I wish the pace of the film was quicker and I wish there were more funny scenes with Ranbir Kapoor.

Rating– 3/5
