Verdict: A complete entertainment package with umpteen laugh-out-loud moments. Four years ago, audiences were left smitten by the small town charm beautifully picturized in Raanjhanaa starring Dhanush and Sonam Kapoor. Then it was Benares and now we have Bareilly - one of India's most colorful towns with a Bollywood song devoted to it (remember Jhumka []... ...Read full review

That love triangles don`t culminate in a happily-ever-after for everyone involved (unless a threesome is considered) makes them rather predictable. Explored and imagined in every possible permutation, the construct can`t stray away from the inevitable: boy meets girl, girl meets another boy, both boys vie for girl`s attention and eventually, her heart melts for one and condenses the other`s. ...Read full review

One film old female director Ashwini Iyer Tiwari became an overnight popular storyteller with Nil Battey Sannata, that dealt with the education system of girls in northern India. Her knack for showing small town people and their issues is commendable, but again banking unconditionally on her with just one film isn`t justified either. ...Read full review

When Chirag Dubey (Ayushmann Khurrana) tells Pritam Vidrohi (Rajkummar Rao), Thukraaye huye aashiq ki kabhi haay mat lena (Never hurt a jilted lover), he seems emotionally drained in a love story that has two guys competing to look more masculine in front of a heroine whose character flaw, as per the society, is that she acts like boys. ...Read full review
Bareilly Ki Barfi is what youd get if you took Saajan and gave it the Basu Chatterjee or Sai Paranjpye treatment. Its a sweet, inoffensive romantic comedy based on a slim premise, but buoyed by strong performances, the unmistakable charm and texture of small-town India, and garnished with moments of crackling humor. ...Read full review
Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari`s sophomore effort Bareilly Ki Barfi is a sweet and delicious but eventually slight concoction. But that isn`t meant as criticism. It is 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. ...Read full review
This slender yet joyous film introduces so many fresh insanities and has such an endless stream of wisecracking - full of rhymes, segues, and twisted phrases (stuff like Zor Ki Yaad) - that it takes on shades of a running ballad. ...Read full review
Bitti Mishra (Kriti Sanon) is a spunky, cigarette-smoking, break-dancing girl, who sticks out like a sore thumb in the small town of Bareilly. With two broken engagements and countless rejections, finding a groom for her seems like Mission Impossible. Just when a hopeless Bitti is running away from home, she comes across Bareilly Ki Barfi, a trashy novel that seems to be written about her. ...Read full review
