Gavemic U Ary cranked the camera and the music composition is by Arko Pravo Mukherjee, Tanishk Bagchi, Samira Koppikar, Sameer Uddin and Vayu. Junglee Pictures and BR Studios bankroll the project. AA Films distribute the film. Bareilly Ki Barfi is inspired by Ingredients of Love, a French novel.


Bitti Mishra is a girl, who is based on Bareilly. Her parents wanted her to be bold and brave and hence they raise her like a boy and not a girl. She smokes and drinks like the men and her dad doesn't care about it. When her parents started searching a groom for her, she rejects them citing some reasons. At this stage, Bitti’s parents started worrying about their daughter. Meanwhile, Bitti reads a book titled Bareilly Ki Barfi. She is attracted very much towards the book and thinks that the author of the book could understand her feelings. Chirag Dubey, the printer of the book creates a story on the author of the book, Pritam Vidrohi, whose name and photo are printed on the book. What did he say about Pritam? Who is the real author of the book? Did Bittu find her soul mate? Watch the film on the silver screen.

Star Performance

Kriti’s performance is good. She has come up with new emotions while comparing with her previous film, “ Raabta.” Ayushmann Khurrana gets an appreciation for choosing and doing such a role. Like Ayushmann, Rajkummar Rao has taken a different role in his career. These two guys should really be appreciated for choosing experimental roles and attracting the public.


Nil Battey Sannata director Ashwini Iyer has come up with yet another different story. As a director, Ashwini succeeds in her attempt. But, the screenplay is a bit weak. We should definitely appreciate her for getting the best from the stars. She has the talent to extract the emotions from the actors and entertains the viewers.

What’s There?

  • Rajkummar Rao plays a vital role in the success of the film
  • Kriti and Ayushmann emote very well
  • Background music and the songs are good
  • Javed Akhtar’s voice over impresses

What’s Not There?

  • Screenplay is not impressive


Although there are some minor flaws in the film, the lead stars performance and Ashwini's direction make us watch the film. Bareilly Ki Barfi is worth watching!
