Bonhomie……yes thats the thing you will take away from Bareilly Ki Barfi. Be it the Father-Daughter rapport, the Guru-Chela kinda friendship between Ayushmaan and his friend or the relationship that Ayushmaan and Kirti share, their is a lot of Bonhomie among the characters.
Plot : Watch Bitti Mishra find herself among the pages of a book in this quirky rom-com.
StarCast : Kirti Sanon, Ayushmaan Khurana, Rajkumar Rao, Seema Pahwa, Sanjay Tripathi
Review : Bareilly Ki Barfi is a career-defining move for Kirti Sanon who plays the protagonist Bitti Mishra here. She is this really cool ‘tomgirl’ every boy would want to hangout with. But things go tizzy when no boy coming with a marriage proposal seems to approve of her rowdy ways. One thing leads to another and she finally finds one of her kind in the author of the book Bareilly Ki Barfi. Things turn funny when she sets out to find the author of the book (Rajkumar Rao) taking help from its publisher, Chirag Dubey (Ayushmaan Khurana). What follows is a tale of mistaken identities, competition in love and a whole lot of rangbaazi.
The movie is one of those team efforts where each and every actor gives a memorable performance although it is senior actors Sanjay Tripathi and Seema Pahwa who steal the show here. Even the young guns, Kirti Sanon (who was born to play Bitti Mishra), Ayushmaan Khurana (who gives a very subtle performances, often wandering into the grey area) and Rajkumar Rao (he totally takes over the second-half) form a great team. The actor who plays Ayushmaan’s friend is seriously funny.
Coming from the husband-wife duo of Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and Writer Nitesh Tiwari, Bareilly Ki Barfi was such a necessary movie with its old world charm and laidback characters. Her seamless direction and his one-liner U.P friendly dialogues make sure you have keep laughing long after the credits have rolled.
A lovely piece of cinema that amalgamates the good old way of storytelling with modern day characters.
Rating : 8.7/10
Verdict : Bareilly Ki Barfi………a quirky rom-com that proves the……LAWS OF MURPHY.
