Bareilly Ki Barfi collects Rs 6.27 crore in two days - a detailed analysis
Bareilly Ki Barfi has collected a whopping Rs 6.27 crore within two days at the box office. Directed by Ashwin Iyer Tiwari; starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao, this romcom has whisked good amount of sweetener in the audiences' hearts.

Sources say that the film which began with a window collection of Rs 2.42 crore on Friday, immediately headed out to a staggering surge of 59 per cent on the second day of its release with estimated collections of Rs 3.85 crore.

The film is set in the north Indian town of Bareilly and it perfectly picks up all the fine nuances of the place.

The writers Nitesh Tiwari and Shreyas Jain have liberally poured sweetener into thisBarfi. There is a lucid flow in writing, direction, acting and in the comic timing that surely transpires to appease the crowds.

Bitti Mishra (Kriti Sanon) is a girl who has the right amount of everything which in the conventional sense can be called unconventional, offbeat for a small town middle class girl. She has a balanced amount of unusual traits. She is free-spirited, has progressive ideals and doesn't mind in indulging in anything and everything which gives her pleasure, right from smoking to swaying to break-dance on the open terrace.

She falls in love with Pritam Vidrohi (Rajkummar Rao) an author. His progressive thoughts invoke a sense of admiration in her and she begins her journey in finding the real author. Chirag Dubey (Ayushmann Khurrana) owner of printing press, comes to the rescue, helping her, though his only motive is to understand about the inner feelings of Bitti.

Ayushmann Khurrana has some shades of grey in his character but overriding his darker shades are his sweeter tones. Ayushmann exemplifies in the specific role.

But the character that steals away all the attention is Pritam Vidrohi; Rajkummar Rao. The ace actor impeccably enacts his role right from draping saris around women to modulating his voice; and using the gaali lingos to stammering. He surely gets all the whistles!

Kriti Sanon plays her character effortlessly with ease.

Pankaj Tripathi and Seema Bhargava have the right amount of earthy flavour synonymous with middle class Indian parents. Quintessentially liberal for a small town but conventional in their own sweet way.

The storyline though has nothing new to offer but the way it has been depicted calls for an applause. Punches and witty retorts being the saviour of the film.

Javed Akhtar's voice over throughout the movie adds on that tangy zest.

Biting into this Barfi would leave you with an inexplicable and delectable flavour for some time.
