Barfi, a good film to watch

Barfi is a well made film. Directed by Anurag Basu, the film is about the friendship and  romance between a mentally challenged girl, and a deaf and mute boy.

There are twist and turns in the film. The parts that could have been better were the portrayal of the flashback scenes. The way some of the scenes were going back and forth, it did add to some confusion.

The good part was the uninhabited acting by Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra.Their innocent fun and  romantic ways was quite refreshing to watch. Ranbir's falling in love with a beautiful young girl Ileana, their romance, and struggle was also nicely depicted.

Both Ranbir and Priyanka are brilliant in the film. I was quite impressed with Ileana's acting as well. She definitely ahs a screen presence and is beautiful. It is definitely a one-time watch. The comedy parts will remind you of Charlie Chaplin moments at times. Ranbir was really good in all aspects; whether comedy or romance, he just performed extraordinarily well.

Priyanka's acting as a mentally challenged girl was excellent too, great performance!

I do not regret wading through water to watch the film (there was major downpour in Kolkata, and where I live, it becomes Venice within no time! )
The water logged street through which I waded!

This film has some similarity with a film I had watched a long time back – “The Other Sister”. The story is about a mentally challenged girl who falls in love with a man who is challenged too. This film is brilliant and if you have not watched it, I would recommend that you watch it.
