Bareilly Ki Barfi
Bareilly mein rehti hai, Break dance karti hai, English filmein bhi dekhti hai..Entirely encompassing the lifestyle of Bitti (Kriti Sanon) is this line which she picks up from a book called â€˜Bareilly ki Barfiâ€™ and instantaneously has this bubbling curiosity and obsession with meeting the writer of this book Pritam Vidrohi, while she is oblivious of the journey the other characters would have to go through for this rendezvous.
Bringing an all new spicy entertainer rooted with humour and eccentricity is Bareilly ki Barfi, revolving around the lives of the three characters Bitti, the unusual one, Chirag (Ayushmann), the scheming one and Pritam Vidrohi (Rajkummar Rao), the sweet gullible kind. BecomingÂ the scape goat amidst the original love story of Bitti-Chirag comes Pritam, the entry of whose, creates the conundrum.
Bitti is one of those atypical, out of the box, unorthodox and unconventional characters that is unacceptable to the stereotypical, is metaphorically a diamond that is capable of recognition only by the eye of a jeweler. Not everyone understands her; neither does her mother, yet with people such as her father, she feels at ease. With such a distinguished character, anyone would have the drive to find somebody who understands her, who accepts her the way she is and loves her to extremities.
She is todayâ€™s girl who questions the stereotypical at every point, who seem to harbinger and cringe at her way of life and the vulnerable girl within her yearns to meet the person who would want to have her exactly the way she is.
The movie is an out and out entertainer with crackling chemistry of the trio and humour with witty one-liners. How can I forget to mention this supremely talented and insanely humorous lady playing the character of Bittiâ€™s mother who could get us rolling on the floor laughing (ROFL)!
As candid and honest I can be, I couldnâ€™t think of a better star cast for this film than this outstanding bunch of actors with unparalleled performances.
When I talk about Bareilly ki Barfi, there ainâ€™t a chance I can forget to mention the songs which have gathered their places amongst the chartbuster numbers. Well, when you have Arijit singh, Ayushmann khurana, Harshdeep Kaur, all rolled into a single project, do we need a second thought before incorporating them into our playlists?
And songs reminds me of the choreography. Bosco-Caesar are synonymous to dancing and when they enroll themselves as the choreographers of a song, well, itâ€™s an understatement to say that the moment you see kriti sanon twisting on the beats of â€˜twist kamariyaâ€™, itâ€™s difficult to keep me from dancing my heart out on it.
Now getting to the technicalities, from the screenplay to the editing, I couldnâ€™t pull out flaws and so, it is quite a job done.
The director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari has been stupendous in his art. But when I read the word â€˜Bareillyâ€™ in the title itself, I would expect some scenes which would typically suggest how Bareilly is and its nuances, which were a little overlooked.
The tanu weds manu writers have yet surpassed our expectations with another quirky engrossing entertainer.
This mouth savouring barfi with the spice of the other two men is a complete paisa vaisool film which I would definitely suggest you all to go watch!
