Some of scenes of film are inspired by silent era movies of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. E.g. scene when Barfi is hiding under cover of statue and found there next morning during official opening of memorial. Posters of Chaplin's movies can be seen in film at least twice. See more »

I went into this movie with very high expectations and guess what Anurag Basu did it again.
I am always a fan of movies which are slightly different from traditional bollywood style where hero heroine and villain engaged. This movie was comic most of the times and lovely.
The message I liked the most was "Follow your heart" Well movie can't be good until the actors do their job. Ranbir, Priyanka and Illena were spot on. Though a lot of credit to be given to anurag basu. Most of the gags were new.
Seriously I didn't expected the story to be so twisted in the middle but again credit to Mr Basu, the way he streamlined at the end.
People this is definitely one of the bestest movie released in bollywood. Lot of intelligent directors are doing great job, kashyap, basu etc.
Must watch 10/10
