Ashwiny Iyer Tiwary is back with a film that displays an array of emotions. While the writing exudes warmth, it's the slow pace narrative that bogs down the film by few inches and leaves you a bit unsatiated. Nevertheless, her tight direction makes sure that the film doesn't fall apart. Nitesh and his department of writers score well when it comes to imbibing the local nuances in the film.
Rajkummar Rao who takes a major bite of this barfi and outshines the other characters especially in the second half of the film. His transition from being a shy, simpleton saree salesman to a character gone 'rogue' is whistleworthy.
If you have a sweet tooth for some light-hearted drama, then Bareilly Ki Barfi is worth your order for at least once, solely for Rajkummar Rao's delicious act!
