His parents named him Murphy but everyone calls him `Barfi!` Always ready with a prank up his sleeve, he`s quite the charmer especially with the ladies. In Darjeeling, Barfi (Ranbir Kapoor) is the talk of the town even though he can neither speak nor listen. His bitter-sweet relationship with two young ladies, Shruti (Ileana Dcruz) and Jhilmil (Priyanka Chopra) sets in motion a chain of events that will turn his life upside down.

UTV Motion Pictures and director, Anurag Basu invite you to witness the amusing, naughty and sometimes crazy antics of `Barfi`.

A heart-warming tale of selfless love and about finding happiness in the smallest things in life that tells you no matter how tough your life may be ``Dont Worry. Be Barfi!``
And Barfi`s as irresistible as they come. Played by Ranbir Kapoor [ Images ] with that marvellous abandon which is increasingly marking him out to be a truly special leading man - his shoulders well outgrowing those of (all) his A-list peers and rubbing now alongside actual acting heavyweights - his Barfi is a treat, a bushy-tailed hero with a highly infectious spring in his step. There is a natural grace to his klutziness, and he does very strongly indeed with this Chaplin-tribute role, bestowing his character with heart every step of the way. To paraphrase the radio hoarding seen in nostalgia-tinted Darjeeling, Kapoor`s Barfi ``sets the standard.`` ...Read full review
This is a film made with love, bolstered by wonderfully etched vignettes, Ranbir Kapoor`s stupendous performance and a gorgeous soundtrack by Pritam. And yet, for me, Barfi was a singularly frustrating experience there was so much to like, but the film never became more than the sum of its parts. The best thing about Barfi! is the character of Barfi, played by Ranbir Kapoor. This is a man with no money and no voice, who lives by his quick wits. He is always one step ahead of the local cop, whose entire career seems to consist of chasing Barfi. ...Read full review
Barfi falls for the delicately pretty Shruti (Ileana Dcruz), whom he woos relentlessly. But, in a scene lifted straight out of The Notebook, Shruti is reminded why their romance can have no happy ending. In a later scene, one of the best in this film, Barfi wordlessly acknowledges the gaping divide between Shruti and himself. Gesturing towards his torn pockets, his ripped shoe, his inability to hear or speak, Ranbir beautifully conveys Barfis deep hurt at being rejected. His life finds new meaning when hes saddled with his childhood friend Jhilmil (Priyanka Chopra), an autistic girl belonging to a wealthy local family. ...Read full review
Not so Barfi. Although this film is about a deaf-mute man and his search for love, it is told with humour and sensitivity. Barfi is born to a poor couple in Darjeeling. His mother passes away shortly after his birth and Barfi- discovered to be deaf - is brought up by his driver father. Barfi is not a shy guy, he is a mischief-maker, an attention seeker, an insecure friend and warmly demonstrative with all those he is attached to. He follows young girls like Shruti around town declaring his love for them and asking them to be friends after they reject him. Barfi falls in love with Shruti. And although Shruti is attracted to him, she prefers to be sensible and marry the man her parents have chosen for her. Barfi is also deeply attached to the neighbourhood rich girl Jhilmil who is autistic and whose own parents find her difficult to love. The film is about Barfi`s love for these two women and their love for him. ...Read full review
