Bareilly Ki Barfi is all about bubbly girl Bitti Mishra (Kriti Sanon) based in Bareilly. Her parents raise her like a son after which they face the real challenge as she rejects several guys for marriage. One fine day, she happens to read the book Bareilly Ki Barfi after she plans to run away from home.The rest of the film is all about Bitti meeting Chirag Dubey (Ayushmann Khurrana) and Pritam Vidhrohi (Rajkumar Rao) and what happens next. Watch Bareilly Ki Barfi to know about the complete story.

Bareilly Ki Barfi has been inspired from a French novel 'Ingredients of Love'. The movie has been adopted as per the nativity of Uttar Pradesh. The first half of Bareilly Ki Barfi has been entertaining however most of the episodes look dragged and some of them spotted unnecessary. The performances by the lead actors and the songs have been decent which makes the first half of Bareilly Ki Barfi passable.

The second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi struggles as the director misses the major plot. Focused much on unwanted issues, the second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi is an utter disappointment. Once again, the lead actors top the show and it is the entertainment which makes the film sound decent at times. The climax looks simple and on the whole, the second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi fails to live up the expectations.

Performance :

Kriti Sanon delivered her career’s best performance in the film. This upcoming actress has been honest and she has been an eye feast on screen. Her confidence levels have been visible on screen and her performance is one among the major highlights of the film. Ayushmann Khurrana steps out with an interesting and never assigned role with Bareilly Ki Barfi. He has been extremely convincing and does his job well. Rajkumar Rao who loves to experiment has once again a challenging character on board. All the other actors delivered out their best with the film.

The story of Bareilly Ki Barfi has been interesting and the screenplay looks confusing. The dialogues look decent and the music looks soothing. The background score looks decent and it is the cinematography that drives the film completely. The production values look decent and the director managed to entertain the audience thoroughly but fails to make a strong impact on the whole. The editing has been ok and the first half needs to be chopped well. The movie has been technically sound enough.

Final Word

Bareilly Ki Barfi is one film that has loads of entertainment that drives the film however an interesting narration should have done wonders for the movie.

  • Julie 2 Movie Review
    Julie 2 Movie Review

    Julie 2 starts on a decent note but the film turns weird as it passes on. The levels of vulgarity has been injected into the film forcefully which makes the film look unnatural. The skin show of Raai Laxmi looks decent for some time but the audience get shattered for the unwanted glamorous attempts throughout. The director fails in all the available ways in narrating the dark facts with utmost perfection. The first half of Julie 2 has been dull and fails to live up the expectations. The second half of Julie 2 too offers nothing interesting. The entire film looks predictable, outdated and creates enough confusion. The director misses the clarity on his hold and the plot gets deviated several times. The songs have been ok but they don't match the film's mood. The climax has nothing much to offer as the entire plot has been unfolded before. The second half of Julie 2 is a sheer disappointment.


  • Ittefaq Movie Review
    Ittefaq Movie Review

    The first half of Ittefaq has been well framed and is perfectly narrated. The film has been tight and racy right from the first shot and is a treat to watch. You will be deceived with each twist that comes in the film. The performaces need a bow and the entire first half has been extremely interesting. The second half too has been well maintained and is captured well. The director made sure that the film is not deviated at any frame and is equally thrilling and entertaining. The climax is hard hitting that one will be left boggled. On the whole Ittefaq is a film that should not be missed.


  • Golmaal Again Movie Review
    Golmaal Again Movie Review

    Golmaal Again has been focussed mostly on entertainment which has been laced with horrifying episodes. The film is not a comedy unlike the previous installments of Golmaal and is laced with loads of horror. The songs have been shot well and the first half of Golmaal Again looks decent with enough dose of entertainment. The second half of Golmaal Again dips down though it has dose of entertainment. Some of the episodes have been repeated and have been taken from the previous installments. Some of the episodes fail to make any impact however the climax of the film has been thoroughly engaging. On the whole, the second half of Golmaal Again is a disappoinment but manages to sail finally.


  • Secret Superstar Movie Review
    Secret Superstar Movie Review

    Secret Superstar starts on an interesting note and it explains all the small and interesting aspects of the lead characters. Before execution, Secret Superstar has been penned well and is perfectly presented on screen. The performances along with the background score and the way the film has been executed will blow everyone away. The entire first half frames up the film beautifully and makes a strong impact across the audience. The second half has been exceptional right from the first frame and is a treat to watch. Aamir Khan will be seen in an extended cameo and Zaira Wasim tops the show with her flawless and stupendous performance. The pre-climax episodes elevate the film and the climax has been hard hitting. Secret Superstar has a beautiful second half which conveys a strong message for every Indian.

    Judwaa 2 Movie Review

    Judwaa 2 has been promising and entertaining right from the first frame. Varun Dhawan carried the entire film on his shoulders and he is a treat to watch. He excelled completely in the comic scenes and Judwaa 2 is his best film till date. Though the plot has been completely predictable, it is the entertainment, action and the songs which leave the audience entertaining. The first half of Judwaa 2 has been decent and lives up the expectations. The second half of Judwaa 2 too stands decent because of the entertainment levels. All the characters have been recreated from the original and not much homework has been done. The makers have been completely focused on the entertainment and the glamour. The songs have been shot well and they come at the right time in the film. The climax has been quite appealing and on the whole the second half too is a passable ride completely.
