Bareilly Ki Barfi: A tale of romedy set in a small town

A Potpourri of Vestiges Review

Simple stories of cities beyond the metros tasting success in Bollywood in recent times. Bareilly Ki Barfi is one such movie. Released last year, Bareilly Ki Barfi movie has completed a year and is still etched in the memories of the audiences. After doing the round of big screens, you can now watch Bareilly Ki Barfi online, right from the comforts of your home.

This rom-com makes an honest attempt at breaking away from the stereotypical approaches to rom-coms in mainstream Bollywood. Featuring Kriti Sanon, Rajkummar Rao and Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead roles, this movie was directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, who rose to fame with ‘Nil Battey Sanatta’. The writers Nitesh Tiwari and Shreyas Jain have spun a fantastic tale of errors, which though predictable at times, makes you look forward to what happens next. As far as the performances go, it is great to watch Kriti Sanon shedding her girl next door image and donning the role of a small town girl, whilst trying her hand at a totally different look and accent. Rajkummar Rao who is always known to give stellar performances has left no stone unturned in this movie as well wherein he portrays the role of sari shop salesman. While Ayushmann Khurrana bowls you over with his charm yet again, acing the role of a conflicted press owner. Pankaj Tripathi seems to be an oh-so-cool father who had us LOLing when he commented on his wife’s constant nagging by saying, “Thyroid me mood swing hota hai, isiliye kich kich karti hai.” While Seema Pahwa, who seems to be the choice for an ideal mother in many recent Bollywood movie brings justice to her role here, by being a nagging mother, with the only dream of having her daughter hitched and ballsy enough to blatantly tell her guests, “Toh chai kyun banwaye, dudh 52 rupaye kilo ho gaya hai.” The characters of this movie make you feel homely, and their description itself makes you want to re-watch the movie. If you have lost your chance to catch this movie on the silver screen, you can download Bareilly Ki Barfi online movie right away.

Coming back to the plot of the movie, the story revolves around a small North Indian town, Bareilly, where Kriti Sanon, aka Bitti Mishra, fed up of several rejections in the marriage market, finds herself feel connected to a character written in a novel titled ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’. With so much to relate with herself on the pages of the novel, she discovers empathy for the writer Pritam Vidrohi, who found goodness in his protagonist’s flaws. But this author, who goes by the name of Chirag Dubey also happens to be the owner of a press, who is busy fighting his love demons. You can already make out how two names itself will stir up a confusion in the story, thus, inviting twists and humour, which are smoothly written off.

A perfect Pritam Vidrohi is spun out of Rajkummar’s character who hilariously goes from being a small time sari salesman to polishing off his English vocational skills. A love triangle is expected that takes the rest of the time on screen, while everything falls back to its place at the end.

With constant hilarious banter between the star cast, this movie is delightful in many ways and manages to keep the audiences glued to their seats until the very end. What managed to win our hearts are the hilarious one-liners like, “Ye toh aastin ka anaconda nikla” and “Ye Bitti raat bhar kahan ghumti rehti hai, ladki hai koi chudail thode na hai.” The language of a small town is so beautifully depicted on screen, you can totally have yourself enjoying the Bareilly feels. We love how Kriti Sanon got off her comfort zone and wearing the hat of a small town girl, which gives her a 5/5. Keeping the plot crisp, this movie slowly weaves its magic on the audiences. Plan a movie night in the weekend or catch it on your way back to work, Bareilly Ki Barfi movie online should be a part of your watchlist.

In case you are wondering where to find it, you get Bareilly Ki Barfi movie online for streaming and download on ZEE5 and enjoy it with your friends and family, who will surely relate themselves to the wonderful characters on screen.
