Barfi! proves that Ranbir is surely going to climb the ladder of success in a short time. His performance is inspired from many top-rated personalities like Charlie Chaplin, Monsieur Hulot, Raj Kapoor and Kishore Kumar.
The film is shot mostly in Darjeeling. The movie ends in a love triangle, which is much different from regular Bollywood types. This triangle is sweet, sublime and differently told. There is little bit of mystery factor involved in this story too.
In Darjeeling lives the deaf and mute Barfi (Ranbir), who never runs out of goofy ideas. He meets Shruti (Ileana DâCruz), daughter of a rich Kolkata household, and both fell in love with each other. However, Shruti is already engaged and soon going to be married and also not able decide who to choose.
Barfi's father falls ill forcing him to resort to crime, making the entry of Priyanka Chopra as the autistic Jhilmil as she belongs to a rich family.
Priyanka's and Ranbir's performances are surely their best ever performances till now. Ileana also leaves a great impression on the audience in her debut role.
Barfi! is a pleasant and different art film, which may not appeal universal audience. The movie can be definitely rated 5 out 5 acting wise. However, its story is bit stretched and gets confusing sometimes also. On the whole, TRP gives Barfi! 3.7+ stars out of 5.
