Blind movie review of Bareilly Ki Barfi
A blind perspective:
Bareilly Ki Barfi is a Hindi language film directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and produced by Renu Ravi Chopra and Vineet Jain.
The film is written by Nitesh Tiwari, Shreyas Jain and Rajat Nonia.
The film has good acting performances by Ayushmann Khurana as Chirag, Rajkummar Rao as Pritam and Kriti Sanon as Bitti.
The story is of unusual Mishra family which resides in Bareilly, a small town of Uttar Pradesh.
Bitti is the only daughter of Narottam Mishra (Pankaj Tripathi) and his wife Sushila (Seema Bhargava) who raise Bitti as their son.
Bitti is not like other small-town girls as she smokes, drinks, likes to watch English films and has a liking for break dance.
Her parents don’t have a problem with Bitti’s living ways but after getting rejected twice during arranged marriage meetings, she decides to leave the town.
However, her life takes a turn when she reads the book ‘Bareilly ki Barfi’ on the railway station.
Surprisingly, the female character of the book is exactly like her.
So, Bitti decides to return home and approach the publisher of the book Chirag Dubey to get in touch with the author Pritam Vidrohi.
In reality, Chirag has written the book in memory of his ex-girlfriend Babli.
But when Bitti meets Chirag for the first time, he becomes impressed and slowly falls in love with her while helping her to meet his friend Pritam.
At the end of the film, Chirag and Bitti get married.
From the accessibility point of view, the film is really good.
Any blind person can go to watch the movie without any sighted assistance.
The film has audio descriptions or narrations for many scenes in the voice of Javed Akhtar through which blind person would be able to understand the movie completely.
A sighted perspective:
Bareilly Ki Barfi is a surprisingly lovely film with superb acting by the main as well as supporting cast.
Rajkummar is the showstopper with his multi-faceted personality, Ayushmann is effortless as a moody selfish lover and Kriti acted well as a daring, character-filled, rebellious, soft-hearted small-town girl.
The film has a simple yet effective storytelling, well-written and witty dialogues delivered with perfection.
The film starts with a typical middle-class family setting and develops to be the really cute and funny romantic story.
Bitti’s natural bonding with her father and Chirag’s expressions when he finds Bitti liking Pritam are some of the funny and lovely moments of the film.
Overall, Bareilly Ki Barfi is a good family entertainer and a one-time must watch movie of 2017!
