Barfi!

There are not enough words in the dictionary to describe the amazing acting abilities of Ranbir Kapoor. He along with Priyanka Chopra ensure that once you see this movie you will never stop watching.


This movie truly expands beyond the boundaries of the quintessential Bollywood movie, and really shows that the Indian audience can bear things other than scenes where the hero punches the ground and 10 gundas fall.
A deaf guy, Barfi son of a widower father falls in love with a hearing girl, only to see that her family does not approve. She marries someone else, a richer, wealthier someone else, but she always has Barfi in her heart.
Barfi is reacquainted with severely autistic, childhood friend Jhilmil, who is all grown up and ready to enter society. 
This is an unconventional love story which makes you feel sad, happy and loved all at the same time. 
With absolutely lovely music to accompany the brilliant acting of both the otherwise abled people this movie promises to make you cry and laugh at the same time. 
Ranbir Kapoor seems to do no wrong, until of course Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. His potrayal was inspired by Charlie Chaplin, did justice to the role of a street-smart guy.
Priyanka Chopra, as beautiful as she is managed to do so well in her part that you would believe that she wasn't acting, but merely doing what she has done for her entire life.
The Other Girl, as I like to call her, was alright. She had a great deal of a role, but she didn't really do a lot with it. Or maybe she was just overshadowed by the shine of the duo who are of course excellent. But she was just a write off in my head, they could have had anyone else do that bit and still the movie would have not been affected.
The Good: Direction, and Ranbir Kapoor
The Bad: You can't stop watching/talking about it. You will become one of those people who watch Breaking Bad and go crazy
