“..ultimately more endurance test than entertainment..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
4 of 5

“..three wonderfully warm performances and a vivid grasp of rich, local flavour provide Anurag Barsu's Barfi! with a wildly romantic ambience..”
by Simon Foster [sbs.com.au]
3 of 4

“..is marvellous, speaking even when silent..”
by Shubhra Gupta [The Indian Express]
“..Bollywood isn't afraid to be mawkish. "Barfi!" is at times, though not noticeably more so than most Hindi movies, despite its premise of special lovers with a special lesson to teach..”
by Rachel Saltz [NY Times]
“..Anurag Basu, in a welcome change from the typical Bollywood saga, has given us a singular love story - and an unforgettable character - in Barfi..”
by Lisa Tsering [Hollywood Reporter]
3.5 of 5

“..a well-crafted script with an intriguing back-and-forth narrative but it all goes south towards the end..”
by Raja Sen [rediff.com]

by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
