Bareilly Ki Barfi Story
Kriti Sanon plays the role of a Bohemian Bareilly girl who falls deeply in love with Pritam Vidrohi(Rajkummar Rao) author of a book ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, which she accidentally ends up reading on a train journey. She desperately wants to find the author as she admires his progressive way of thinking. But finding him wasn’t a cake walk for Bitti so she seeks the help of the local printing press owner, Chirag Dubey (Aysuhmann Khuranna) on her journey of love.
Bareilly Ki Barfi Movie Review
Bareilly Ki Barfi is set in the North Indian town of Bareilly. It breaks the shackles of Bollywood’s continued dependence on cardboard cuts and instead introduces you to real people, whose charms are infectious. The writers Nitesh Tiwari (director and writer of the much-acclaimed blockbuster Dangal )and Shreyas Jain have put together a sweet, identifiable crowd-pleaser that excels in the writing, direction, acting and music departments.
To talk about performances, Rajkummar Rao is the scene-stealer. Whether he’s the stammering saree salesman or the gali ka gunda, he is magnetic.
Kriti Sanon makes for a lovable Bitti and beti, while Ayushmann goes from white to grey so effortlessly you stay invested in him. Pankaj Tripathi and Seema Pahwa are also in fine fettle and you’re actually tempted to ask them for an encore.
Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari who won notices for her directorial debut Nil Battey Sannata, is in top form again. She puts heart into this comedy and the flawless writing makes it that much more effective.
Every time you guffaw at the antics of the lead and supporting cast, you are reminded that there is so much humour in our daily routine which we have forgotten to stop and savour.
