The misdirection is skilful and pleasing, but I do wish the beautifully beguiling beginning hadn't turned out to be an example of the same.
Raja Sen, Rediff 
You like Barfi (named after Murphy Radio) the moment you meet him.

A sweet emotional film riding on stellar performances. Barfi! takes the cake.
Rachit Gupta, FilmFare
An almost silent relationship between a deaf-mute and an autistic that speaks volumes about unconditional love.

Cast:Ranbir Kapoor, Ileana D'cruz, Priyanka ChopraDirector:Anurag BasuThat rare film that puts a smile on your face even before a single frame of the story is revealed, Anurag Basu’s Barfi envelopes you like a warm blanket from the moment you settle into

Anurag Basu's 'Barfi!' manages to string together beautiful moments: moments of love, friendship, loss and discovery.

Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama
The film insists too hard that we find the magical in the mundane. I wish Barfi! the film was as magical as Barfi the character. See it for him.

With heaps of charm and poignancy, Barfi traces human spirit, relationships, thru chaplinesque comedy in some parts and smiles through tears in many others. You get as involved in Barfi’s journey as all his fellow co-stars and you’re taken on this breezy

On the whole, Barfi falls in those categories of feel good cinema. Scintillating performances, decent music and fresh look of the film are sure shot plus points. On the flip side Barfi doesn’t have the regular commercial entertainment factors. This is a k
