Bareilly Ki Barfi hits theatre and this film is definitely worth a try!
Well, you guys can set your weekends, as fun packed Bareilly Ki Barfi has been released today. Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar Rao, Kriti Sanon tried to give their best out of them. One film old female director Ashwini Iyer Tiwari became an overnight popular storyteller with Nil Battey Sannata, which dealt with the education system of girls in northern India. It was a blockbuster. Ashwini brings yet another small town flavored film Bareilly Ki Barfi, but this time it is not based on any social issue instead it’s a love triangle.
Well, Story is about Bitti Mishra (Kriti Sanon) stays in Bareilly and is the only daughter of her parents Pankaj Tripathi and Seema Pahwa. She is a modern, fearless and girl, who believes in breaking societal norms.
Chirag played by Ayushmann Khurrana a small time local writer, secretly admires Bitti and keeps writing his feelings in a book which Bitti coincidentally reads and soon after, she falls for him but things turn upside down when Chirag plants his best friend Pritam (Rajkummar Rao) as the original writer. Who gets Bitti, in the end, is what the film all about. Ashwini clearly wanted to make a love triangle set in the small town with comic punches. The film is another Bollywood’s love triangle with the pinch of comedy in an addition.
Disappointment: Nothing is out of the Box
Well, we were expecting many more things from the film. It was yet another normal Bollywood love triangle. The film also reminds of Kunal Kohli’s directorial debut Mujhse Dosti Karoge where Hrithik Roshan mistakes his true love Rani Mukerji with the vivacious Kareena Kapoor Khan.Written by her director-husband Nitesh Tiwari, the film is enjoyable, but in parts, especially in the first half, where Ashwini has taken much time to build her characters. However, the film picks up its pace in the second half but it’s too late by then. The climax of the film is so predictable that one could easily guess who will get the girl in the end. Although the trailer of the film looked quite appealing, the film fails to build on it. In short, it is one-time watch film only.Music of the film is not that much appealing too, except for the song Aabra Ka Dabra which is peppy enough to groove to.
We rate it 3.5 stars!
