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.
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.

One of my favorite movies ever. Barfi is such a loveable character. Every moment is delightful. The best physical humor of any movie I have ever seen. Hysterical!Published 13 months ago by Diana Wilson
I have grown weary of Hollywood and it's developed affinity to include raunchy language and gratuitous sex scenes in most every movie. Read morePublished 14 months ago by timothy andrew neal
