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.
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.
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.
