     Nice movie with a moral 5 February, 2014 On Junglee.com
    This movie is really a nice production which is directed in the memory of Charlie Chaplin.
    The comedy scenes played by Ranbir Kapoor are really impressive.
    Priyanka Chopra also played a good role throughout the movie.

    >> Pro's :-
    • Nice Comedy scenes
    • An inspiration to deafs and dumbs.
    • Nice picture quality

    >> Cons :-
    • Some of the scenes were copied from Charlie Chaplin and Mr. Bean clips.

    >> Happy Ending !

     Very Sweet Movie - Good Story! 7 September, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Great story that portrays the profundity of understanding in a relationship in a very light-hearted and lively manner. The movie shows Barfi, a deaf and mute guy and Jhilmil, an autistic girl falling in love under circumstances.
    The movie balances fun and suspense all throughout. Great performance by both the actors - Especially the ending when Barfi smiles in acknowledgement of Jhilmil's presence next to him which seals our conviction of their selfless love for each other.
    A nice family watch!

  4.  Honey-strewn Barfi! 9 June, 2014 On Junglee.com
    Far from a mere title, Barfi is a metaphor for life. It asks one to throw cautions to the winds and indulge in the sweetness that life has to offer. It can be a simple bicycle ride, a seed-spitting marshmallow treat, a ‘second-hand’ painting session, a pani-puri indulgence, or trapping fireflies in a bubble (Can we perceive it as an effulgent soul trapped in a bubble of mortal body? Or maybe I am reading too much between the lines, or rather frames? Blame it on the screenplay that tugs your heartstrings and inspires philosophical symphonies).

    To begin with, Barfi, written and directed by Anurag Basu is replete with many such honey-strewn scenes that translate into lump-in-throat moments, and simultaneously elicit smiles without trying too hard. A tough feat indeed, for any screenplay writer worth his/her salt.

    The film greets us with a ‘Picture shuru’ track, which I hope is allowed to be used for every film. This would make those ‘Statutory warnings’, ‘Switch off your mobile phones’ and ‘Acknowledgments’ slides something worth looking forward to. The song not only sounds catchy, but also works at functional level, where many cell phone addicts promptly pressed the ‘mute’ icon, to make way for yet another ‘mute icon’ – Ranbir Kapoor.

    The actor is a textbook of performing art – someone who can pull off a Charlie Chaplin slapstick sequence with as much ease as a heavy-duty emotional outburst without uttering a single word and overacting. Ranbir Kapoor is chameleon of an artist, who becomes the character he portrays. Ten minutes in the film, and you forget he’s Ranbir Kapoor and start believing that he’s Murphy, oops Bafi, as the lead character would like to put it.

    Far from the chicken soup for disabled souls or a lesson on sign language for deaf and dumb. Chuck the euphemisms of ‘differently-abled’ or ‘special’, ‘hearing/speech impaired’ ‘specially abled’ etc., for Barfi! makes no bones about the character’s disabilities, nor does its lead character solicit your sympathy. In fact, after few minutes, Murphy i.e. Barfi doesn’t make you wish he’d be as normal (or abnormal) as us.

    Barfi falls for a girl, gets rejected, seeks solace in his childhood friend, gets entangled in a kidnap case, and the destinies of these three lead characters crisscross each other, making way for a non-linear narrative that keeps you hooked right from opening sequence till the end credits.

    Priyanka Chopra deserves kudos for her flawless performance as an autistic girl called Jhilmil. It takes real guts to strip oneself off the star status and the obvious trappings of essaying an autistic character, and Priyanka Chopra excels at it and sets new benchmarks of acting. For those comparing her to Shri Devi should first understand the difference between autistic person and a mentally challenged person (pardon the euphemism). Well if you wish to still compare, go ahead and compare her with Shah Rukh Khan in My Name is Khan, and still she’d win hands down.

    Ileana D’Cruz portrays the role of Shruti Ghosh, the narrator of the film to perfection, and lets her eyes do the talking. Her character subtly makes you feel guilty of being bestowed with five senses, thanks to the ‘layered writing’ and nuanced performance.

    Ravi Chandran paints the canvas of silver screen with vivid hues of emotions through his immaculate cinematography. Anthony Gonsalvez and Akiv Ali edit the film in a seamless style. Be it the opening song, the Chalu Chaplin sequences or the tight close-up sequences, each scene exudes charm and commands respect.

    The music is the soul of Barfi! It would have been impossible to maneuver through the layers of lead characters without those lilting melodies handholding us at every step. Preetam must take a bow to come up with a career-best soundtrack, right from the ‘making of the film’ song ‘Fatafati’, the opening credits song, ‘Picture shuru’, to the buoyant ‘Aala Barfi’, catchy ‘Mein kya karu’ and ‘Kyun’, soothing ‘Saawli si raat ho’ and sonorous ‘Aashiyaan’.

    The song, ‘Phir le aaya dil’ is indeed a pearl in the oyster of the film’s narration. This soulful rendition by Arjit Singh and Rekha Bhardwaj is easily one of the best ghazals we’ve ever heard in films. The songs weave words with an effortless ease and enchant us with their phonetics and vocabulary. After all it’s not everyday that you google a word’s meaning after watching a film.

    The words like ‘mayassar’ and ‘musalsal’ in the nuggets of a line, ‘Dil keh raha hai, use mayassar kar bhi aao, woh jo dabi si aas baaki hain’ will compel you to do so. The song evokes one to make the desires complete, and further prods yearnings to be made available and paths to be made unending – Hats off to the ensemble of lyricists Swanand Kirkire, Neelesh Mishra, Ashish Pandit, and Sayeed Quadri.

    Despite the fact that Barfi! is an extremely well-made film, it somehow falls short of being proclaimed as a masterpiece cinema. Perhaps it’s because one’s mind is at work to assess a film which requires to be watched from the heart – just like its characters Barfi and Jhilmil love each other.

    So the diabetic critics and ‘This looks like Amelie’ or ‘We’ve seen such films at film festivals’ expert opinion-makers beware, Barif! isn’t for you. A film like Barfi! isn’t meant to be watched, but experienced. Not to be rated, but celebrated. Not reviewed, but revered. Damn the stars.

  5.  The quintessential indian sweet- Barfi 26 December, 2013 On Junglee.com
    This film is an example of how over time Bollywood has moved from 'reel' to 'real' cinema. For an average Indian, to make a movie work the film must hit the right emotional chord and Barfi does just that in all its subtlety.

    The vision of the directly set against cinematography that pains the picture just right and with power packed performances from the two most promising actors, Ranbir and Priyanka; Barfi brings together humor, tears, drama and comedy in a movie that makes you go aww at the end.

    With references from Charlie Chaplin and Mr. Bean, the character sketch doesnt make you feel it is a rip off, in fact it adds to the story. The music as playful as the film compliments the flow within scenes and melodioudly connects one scene to another.

    A film for all ages, everyone associated actively and passively with this film will look back years from now and remember this as a historic landmark in their career.

     Priyanka And Ranbir Proved And Got 100 19 December, 2013 On Junglee.com
    If someone has to see Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor act to prove their talent, this is the movie. In Barfi both have acted very well. Credit goes to the story, script and location setting too. Though Ranbir is seen in a comedy role but story has a deep serious touch. A must watch.

  7.  Brillaint. 2 May, 2014 On Junglee.com
    I feel this was the movie that set Ranbir aside from the rest of the pack. I feel the fact that he plays a physically challenged person in the world adds to how well he does overall. You see he doesnt say a single dialogue and yet despite the feeble attempts he makes with getting women always gets him somewhere. Not just that, he manages to make an autistic woman fall in love with him and keep it that way. I think that was the most touching thing about the film. It made me laugh and smile so much. Just very genuine and creative. A pity this wasn't flagged down as a product of the Oscars but we all know why...

    Barfi isn't exactly 100% original but is much better than the sum equal of the sources I would say. The story is original yes.

  8.  A masterpiece. 24 March, 2014 On Junglee.com
    Its definitely one of the master. The movie is romantic comedy-drama film directed, written and co-produced by Anurag Basu. The movie revolves around an autistic girl(Priaynka Chopra) and a deaf and mute boy(Ranbir Kapoor) and the story is narrated by a girl(Ileana D'cruz) who fell in love with boy's innocence and true heart. All actors have perfectly presented their character with Priyanka Chopra giving her best till now.
    Some part of comedy scene is copied from Chalie Chaplin movies and it was the reason for the rejection in Oscar.
    At moment I thought Ranbir was actually deaf and mute,superb acting.
    Movie makes you laugh and cry,sad and happy through out.
    Superb movie,will be delight.

  9.  Hats off to Director ! 30 May, 2014 On Junglee.com
    Hats off to Director !
    For trying a very off-track subject.
    for taking two physical challenged protagonists and turn this into a fun watch rather than pity.
    for taking care of such small details which we all have observed at least once in the life.

    for describing the story so beautifully....
    For gelling the serene picture and heavenly music so well with the plot that you don't care if you are watching a musical comedy, comical journey or mango man's life from a prizmic lens ..

    Hats off to Anurag Basu for gifting us such a beautiful Gem !

  10.  slow yet steady.... 18 March, 2014 On Junglee.com
    barfi is an awesome movie. The only thing which is bad about it is that it is a slow moving film of the reason being minimum conversations between the characters. Anurag basu has done a work of bravery by doing this film as it is different from all the other films. The character played by ranbir kapoor is the one who is dumb and priyanka chopra a mentally challenged girl. The story line is too good and acting by priyanka and ranbir is marvellous. It is worth the money and u will enjoy watching it
