Critic Reviews for Barfi!
Quirky deaf man gets entangled in love triangle in poignant Bollywood romantic comedy.
Hopping nimbly among three distinct timeframes, helmer Basu deconstructs the film's sentimental thrust to stress his hero's in-the-moment ingenuity.
Despite a hard-working cast, a lush score, exotic location shooting and scattered warmth, "Barfi!" is ultimately more endurance test than entertainment.
It is with some reluctance that we leave the beautiful world of Barfi!, but we do so with the knowledge that the Kapoor family legacy is safe in the hands of Ranbir, who can already lay claim to the title of the finest actor of his generation.
Audience Reviews for Barfi!
Impressive visual story-telling, something that is very rare in Bollywood. Great cinematography, editing and art direction. Neat performances, some credit of which goes to the director as well. A good watch.
Not a bad effort, but I found it boring. For a film with little dialogue it was way too long. The soundtrack was random and did not sync well with the film. I hate to say it, but I also found the title character to be annoying. (First and only viewing - 6/18/2014)
Aamir Khan-style social commentary meets Bollywood love triangle trope. A surprisingly good combination, though the back-and-forth through time and memories makes the story hard to follow at times.
