Movie director anurag basu and karan johar

Filmmaker Karan Johar feels "talentless" after watching Anurag Basu's "Barfi!" and says it would be an "honour" to work with actor Ranbir Kapoor who has excelled as a deaf and mute boy in the movie.

"I just saw 'Barfi!'...I have never felt more limited, inferior and talentless. Anurag Basu is the god of all filmmakers... his genius is 'Barfi!'," Johar tweeted.

"Ranbir Kapoor has given the most outstanding performance... he deserves a running ovation! It will be an honour to work with him," he further tweeted.

Johar also heaped praises on Priyanka Chopra for her portrayal of an autistic girl.

"Priyanka Chopra is just brilliant as Jhilmil. Superbly nuanced and pitch perfect. Her portrayal lingers long after the film.. Well done Ileana D'Cruz !!! Superb debut... and Kudos to all at UTV for this masterpiece that defines the barometer of modern cinema," he added.

    I failed to understand if this movie was a love story, a mystery or a comedy..basically a khichi of all...the film was good only in parts..some moments were nice but overall...it lacked the grip to glue me as an audience for 2.5 hrs..these are just my thoughts...no offense...I am a big big Ranbir Kapoor fan..the only USB of the film. The actors are the only USB of the film.

    Barfi is a great film. As for Karan, while I don't particulalry like his kind of cinema, i have to give him credit for always being very generous in praising everything that is new or exciting, be it Barfi, Delhi Belly and so on.

    Just see a few songs. Looks like a good movie. Are the references to Ranbir's character and Mr Bean intentional? Do love it though.
