Bareilly Ki Barfi movie reviews

Here's what the critics are saying about Bareilly Ki Barfi, starring Kriti Sanon, Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar Rao and Pankaj Tripathy:

The Indian Express

Among the good things about this film is the superb supporting cast: Tripathi, who’s much too young to play the leading lady’s father, does a good job of being Bitti’s papa, who’s more like a pal than a pa.

The characters and their lives are introduced to the audience through a narrative by Javed Akhtar in the beginning of the film. The characters are well-etched and developed thoughtfully with consistency. Read the complete movie review here.

Khaleej Times

The film is directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, whose debut 'Nil Battey Sannata' was critically acclaimed. Add to that, the film is co-written by 'Dangal' director Nitesh Tiwari along with Shreyas Jain. Obviously, our expectations were high with a stellar team at work, but the film seems like an opportunity lost as much more could have been achieved. Read the complete movie review here.

Movie Talkies

As far as the film goes, the first half is not so engaging, to be very honest and you may find your attention wandering towards the popcorn. However, once Rajkummar enters the narrative, the film gets elevated to another level altogether and starts becoming entertaining and engaging. Read the complete movie review here.
