Anupama Chopra Film Companion Bareilly Ki Barfi has enough flavour to keep you going. Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari keeps it frothy and light. I exited the theatre hoping that she'll give Pritam Vidrohi his own film. Rated: 3/5 Sep 6, 2018 Full Review Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Rao sweetens the pot, and makes up for the rest of it. Almost. Rated: 2.5/5 Dec 6, 2017 Full Review Namrata Joshi The Hindu It's the parents, along with a host of other characters around the lead protagnists, who inject life into BKB. Nov 14, 2017 Full Review Saibal Chatterjee NDTV A largely inoffensive, mildly diverting small-town romance that generally hits the right buttons thanks primarily to a crisp and lively screenplay, earthy dialogues and effortless acting by a fine cast. Rated: 3/5 Jul 24, 2020 Full Review Rahul Desai Film Companion BKB is a greedy, crowded drama that isn't impulsive enough to do justice to each of its littler films. I won't be dwelling on it too much, though. Rated: 2.5/5 Mar 1, 2019 Full Review Manjusha Radhakrishnan Gulf News (UAE) While it takes time for Bareilly Ki Barfi to warm up to you, the crackling second half and the arrival of Rao signals for good things to come. Rated: 3/5 Aug 27, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member Kriti Sanon plays Bitti, a teenage girl who never listens to her parents or takes anyone's advice her parents call her too much of a tomboy and they only want her to find a reasonable suitor Bitti doesn't want this life so she decides to go her own path, she even picks up a book at a train station called ''Bareilly Ki Barfi'' but the actual author has someone else's picture printed for fear of humiliation, the author is Pritam Vidroh and his friend is Chirag Dubey Chirag tries to pass off his brother as the actual author but the truth is he's in love with Bitti which in turn makes things much harder, so now the question remains of whom Bitti chooses is being a girl a complete disaster?, would things be any different if parents had a boy instead of a girl?, sometimes the norms in a certain part of the world are just what people are used to, love can open our hearts even if we don't believe in it anymore, when it comes to marriage is your happiness more important or just our parents?, it's hard to love someone so much but it's even harder to not love at all this one actually took a few turns I wasn't expecting, some of the dramatic moments were pretty honest too about how messy a lie like this can turn into, the love triangle even caught me by surprise, too a pair of enjoyable leads make this Bollywood picture sweet even if it goes for the honest feelings it conveys more than the humor you'd be anticipating Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/14/23 Full Review Audience Member I love the movie and i love the stories and kriti sanon, the best.

But the right script and right cast makes even that work with puerile humour and garnishing of feminist values. The small-town entertainment has been re-evaluated quiet infectiously in this disarming, interesting film. Also starring Rajkumar Rao and Kriti Sanon, 'Bareilly Ki Burfi' has a single sin- it's extra sweet, and topped further with a cocktail ending. Plodding with unconvincing and preditable romantic comedy cliche twists, this one is an assault on it's progression. But it's still an inherently watchable film that hits you on the melt path. Sometimes we could just do with that. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
