Bareilly ki Barfi review.... Extra Sugar added !

\n

\"Be careful of how you perceive those who are below you .... the universe has a way of favoring the UnderDog\"

\n

There are bullies and there are underdogs... what happens when the underdog starts bullying. This is what the movie is all about !

\n

 

\n

And from the trailers you must have guessed that Rajkumar Rao is the underdog we are talking about. He does a great joke about his own looks in the movie but in reality he is telling the viewers that unconventional looks can also make it big in Bollywood. He follows Irrfan and Nawaz and the trio leads the only-looks-are-not-so-important bandwagon in Bollywood

\n

WOM (Word of mouth) has become so common for film fraternity that every so called trade writer applies it for a movie which is sans buzz sans star power sans strong item number sans action.

\n

So what happens to the business of a movie minus WOM and also which is  facing a powerful adversary in the form of 'Toilet'. And that my friend is a prelude to 'Bareilly ki Barfi... Promising start eh?

\n

So if Ayushman, Kriti Sanon and Rajkumar Rao cannot muster up buzz than who can? The Pareto principle is being applied to hilt in Bollywood - 2 percent of stars control 90 percent of the business and the rest pray their stars...oh dear.

\n

 

\n

But the good news is that even if you don't fall completely in love with Bareilly ki Barfi but will definitely like her and the movie too !

It falls safely in the timepass zone and doesn't try to  trespass elsewhere. It's difficult not to laugh in the movie as it throws some genuine wisecracks and some genuine cinematic moments too. There are scenes worth mentioning here - 

\n

 

\n
    \n
  1. The novel (book) angle and the novel (innovative) triangle which brews later
  2. \n
  3. Ayushman and Rajkumar Rao meeting in London - the entire Bully Underdog angle.
  4. \n
  5. The transformation of the underdog to Bully
  6. \n
  7. Climax
  8. \n
  9. Pankaj Tripathi (dad) talking to the fan and the mom's overall antics !
  10. \n
\n

 

\n

Hope I haven't divulged much here but there is a lot to look forward and the trailer is just a precursor to the movie here !

The sad part - Kirti Sanon looks a million bucks but the same can't be said about her acting but quite better than her previous venture. Also why would a prospective groom can even dream of rejecting a girl like her seems so strange too. The music is a downer here - not even a single tune to hum after the movie maybe I will try hearing it again. Plus it takes a lot of time initially to kickstart.

\n

 

\n

Performance wise I shall have a reference point too. Mujhse Shaadi Karoge !! So Salman was quite earnest in his role but it was Akshay Kumar walks away with the accolades yet their chemistry was impeccable. Can see the same grooming here with Ayushman though earnest and very good in his role, it's Rajkumar Rao who nails it hard. Both his facets are too good - it's him competing against himself in his two different character portrayals. And the overall bromance is superb !

\n

 

\n

All in all a high 5 for the Rao, the parents , the wonderful chemistry between Rao - Ayushman 

\n

, the unique triangle and the laughs through out !

\n

 

\n

Go for it and you might relish this Barfi !

Bareilly Ki Barfi review from other sources

BollywoodHungama 2/5

On the whole, BAREILLY KI BARFI has its moments and boasts of great performances but it’s too unconvincing. Also, lack of face value and low-key promotions coupled with insipid music as well as domination by TOILET – EK PREM KATHA will spell doom for the film at the box office.

NowRunning.com 2.5/5

The problem with this film, is that the hero fails to endear us to him. We have no logical reason to want to root for him. And that makes the second half feel longer than it is. In fact, Chirag is so nasty, you wish Pritam Vidrohi would get the girl instead. But it's a Hindi film after all, and the hero must ride away into the sunset with the girl.

If you have a sweet tooth for some light-hearted drama, then Bareilly Ki Barfi is worth your order for at least once, solely for Rajkummar Rao's delicious act!

TimesOfIndia.com 4/5

Javed Akhtar’s voice-over introducing the characters and situations is breezy, once again thanks to the funny punches. Quite like the money-spinner Tanu Weds Manu and its sequel, this film too keeps you invested in its rain and shine moments. As a bonus you get the peppy Sweety Tera Drama and Twist Kamariya tracks, both of which will get you grooving. Bite into this barfi for sure; it is bound to lift your spirits.

In no way, BAREILLY KI BARFI is the one to be missed. Ashwini Iyer Tiwari has fulfilled the desires of a feel good mainstream rom-com in BAREILLY KI BARFI. It is delightfully sweet, delicious, comes with a twist and is powered by top notch performance from Kirti Sanon, Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao.
