  • There is much to admire in this attempt to push the Bollywood envelope. It's rare for mainstream Hindi cinema to feature such sensitively drawn characters.

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • This is a film made with love, bolstered by wonderfully etched vignettes, Ranbir Kapoor's stupendous performance and a gorgeous soundtrack by Pritam. And yet, for me, Barfi was a singularly frustrating experience.

  • Perhaps, one day we will see the disabled in all their hues, in stories that truly are theirs, not churned out for our easy digestion.

  • It's good in many ways; what stops it from being a great film is a degree of fuzziness, and an insistence on prettiness.

  • 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.

    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.
