Absolutely how I felt when I watched this movie.  I could care less if it was copied or inspired.  But the simplicity of story telling, characters and acting was mind blowing to me.
I love old movies, black and white movies and I always felt sad that there was no legacy to those days, but the director and 3 main actors and every other supporting actor made me believe that it is possible to get movies that are not about sensation only, or teeny boppers in designer clothes or super heroes.  I am not knocking these types of movies( I would not have missed Kareena in Heroine at all) and I am a fan of masala movies as well.  There is nothing wrong in sitting down for 3 hours and watching a movie simply for entertainment value, and there were plenty this year, and looking forward for more from SRK, but Ranbir and PC were simply a timeless and tuneful melody in this movie.
The confusion in the kidnapping and so on may not be logical to the average person, but try looking at the story from the point of view of a person who is challenged both in hearing and speech dealing with some-one who is autistic.  It is simply not straight forward and it would obviously lead to meandering, and add to that a confused in love young girl.
Loved the movie and it was not boring at all.  It just did not take place at the breakneck speed that most other movies occur.

completely agree...there r movies in which u have absolutely 0% expectation, but the movie turns out to be a 100% entertainer...Barfii was one of those films...imagine a film with no dialogues spoke more than other films ...it just goes to show tat content is important...n every moment of Barfii gelled well with the scenes...songs well incorparated...nothing was OTT...enjoyable...still have a smile on my face wen i think of this filmBig smile

No, i loved the movie. Not for a moment did i found it boring, yeah the kidnapping part was bit too much though, but otherwise I loved the movie. It really made me smile, well i cant explain but it just really felt very nice and warm after watching the movie. Plus the performances by everyone in the movie was way too good.

I liked Barfi. It had a good script, amazing direction and phenomenal acting done by the cast.

However, it did get a little slow at times, and I found some parts a little too stretched (the kidnapping bits). But I don't think it was a boring movie, overall. 

Not going to lie, I did expect a little more going by the hype surrounding it. I liked it nonetheless!

When the movie's promos were out and I heard that Ranbir plays a deaf/dumb guy. I wasn't really thrilled since I am not much into those arty kind of movies. But I watched it after my sister and cousins insisted. And, all of us loved it! I liked that the movie was positive. I liked that even though it dealt with serious issues, it wasn't preachy or cynical. And, I absolutely loved each and every character in the movie. PC was such a surprise, I always liked her as a actor but she was mindblowing in this. My cousin had a hard-time believing that it was Priyanka. And, like others stated I don't care if some scenes were copied from other movies. The end result was a cute and adorable movie.
P.S. I hope PC gets best actress award for this. Clap
