Format: DVD
Barfi is a wonderfully crafted slightly colonized drama about a deaf man who wears his heart on his sleeve. The story unfolds retrospectively but keeps the viewer's intrigue nonetheless. The sets were delightful, the music coherent and almost every frame had the actor Ranbir Kapoor who I dare say after Barfi should be considered a world class actor. His performance is exemplary and he wants to be the best or so he says in interviews. I saw this film two months back but it has stayed with me and I cannot wait for the release of the DVD. Barfi's moral benevolence, romantic wavy humor and some powerhouse acting makes it a stand out film of the year for me.

In honesty - you may or may not have read - but this film is inspired by a few scenes from other films like Notebook or Charlie Chaplin films what have you - but I feel the overall product stands far taller than it's sources. It has been given the nod by the Indian film fraternity to represent India at the Oscars. I don't think it will win but should you happen to prance upon it, it might just create an absolute riot in your head.

Very touching love story, with a lot of humor mixed in. I guess I benefit from the fact that I haven't seen the films that were supposedly borrowed from, and the overplaying of the song was part of the humor, with the musicians showing up in the most unprobable places.

Definitely a family movie - something Hollywood only makes in animated films these days, it seems. I also like the fact that the film uses subtitles instead of dubbing over voices, I have never heard a dubbed-voice movie that sounded right.

I see a lot of people nit-picking over whether autism was displayed correctly or not, I'm not too wrapped up in that debate - the girl was mentally challenged as Barfi was physically, and they were able to find true love in each other - THAT is the point. So many politically correct agendas out there that it becomes hard to enjoy such a simple movie, what a shame!

My whole family loves this movie, we saw it in the theater, bought the DVD as soon as it was released, and have watched it twice since then.

Amazing movie, I fall in love with Barfi!! Priyanka and Ranbir performances are great and powerfull; their characters are well manage and believe me I can't reconigze Priyanka in an interview after that, her transformation was awesome. The story is one of the most beautiful love story I ever, ever saw in a movie. That is exactly love is, accept each other without fear, sincerly and from the heart!The music is subliminal and have a special place to move the drama. It's amazing how the director/writer pays tribute to Chaplin in Barfi character awesomely performance by Kapoor. Definetly is neccesary to keep and eye of their future movies. ( both of them Priyanka y Ranbir) So sad the Academy don't chose it from best foreing language category. It doesn't matter because I owned a copy in my list of best movie ever made.

I am very new to "Bollywood" films -and having said that, have all but abandoned American movies at this point- but the first twelve or so minutes of this movie completely hooked me. It's one of the best movies I've ever watched. I and my family have watched it, oh, six or seven times now? It is the sweetest story in the world and because there's not much talking, I found myself incredibly impressed with the way the story is told almost exclusively, on the actors faces. When I compare this to the drivel I see coming out of Hollywood, all those silly Jennifer Anniston movies, this film leaves them in the dust. There's actually a story here, some plot and lovely detail and no one has to curse or strip or kill anyone. It's a film to be watched with someone you love and enjoyed, and hopefully you'll be able to come away with the central message that "stuff" isn't where happiness comes from. There are incredible performances in this film; Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and the lovely Ileana Cruz. My entire family has watched the film and even the younger children, 5, 7-years-old, understand it and like it. Also, loved the music and the little French/European touches with the musicians who travel around the film like the three mice in "Babe." Great film.

About as fun a movie as there is. Funny, yet poignant in so many ways. Takes on a challenging subject from at least two different perspectives.

This is unlike any other Bollywood movie I have ever seen. At first I wasn't sure I would like it but I was glad to be wrong. It is a must see. I would say that the back and forth between time periods was a little confusing and I had to watch it a second time in order to follow the story line fully, but even slightly confused it was still wonderful. It's not even a movie that can be fully described, it is one that just needs to be watched. Laugh out loud, heart breaking, innocent, and pure sweetness to watch!

This movie a gem! it has everything you're looking for in a movie, it's funny, it's romantic, it has its fair share of action/suspense and even a hint of sadness. If you have a beating heart you'll shed a tear. The music is also something that stood out the most to me i love the trio that constatntly was there rain or shine (you'll see what i mean) ;) I recommend this movie to everyone out there. simply a heart-warming experience that you must have! hats off to the producers of this film. BARFI FTW!!!!

I think induna is already shipping Barfi. Their shipping appears high, but typically you receive your films in three days through DHL worldwide. They sell only legitimate copies of dvds.
