Barfi (2012)… A movie review!

Once again, I am here to tell you about another fantastic Hindi movie.

Ranbir Kapoor as Barfi
Barfi (2012)

About

Barfi, is a movie about a man who cannot speak or hear, who falls in love through a series of unfortunate events, with an autistic girl. This movie transitions from one love to another and is a compelling story.


Reaction

It made me laugh, and cheer, I was truly blown away by how well this movie came together.

I have a love for Hindi movies, this is true, but that love comes from movies like this. Genuinely heartfelt, good movies. The acting, despite lack of true vocal communication from the two main characters is undeniably good. You know and understand everything that is happening via narrative and body language. It superbly done.

Barfi
What a beautiful movie

Starring Cast

Priyanka Chopra (Jonas) plays an autistic girl, and well, she does it flawlessly. Ranbir Kapoor plays Barfi, and their on screen chemistry is simply undeniable.

Turn back time!

While this movie is from 2012, I want them to go back in time at the Oscars, and award this movie. Because it was truly Oscar worthy. Now I know Bollywood movies don’t really get considered for North American awards very often, but this movie should of been considered, if not win. It is a true gem.

Rating

I don’t even want to give this movie a rating because I feel as that would insult it. So 20/10 it is, you read that right. It’s just that good.

Chhapaak (2020) A movie Review…

Chhapaak is a movie about Acid Attacks in India, this is a drama film directed by Meghna Gulzar and produced by Deepika Padukone and Meghna Gulzar in collaboration with Fox Star Studios. This movie is well, horrifying, beautiful, tragic, and masterful. Deepika Padukone is simply amazing in this role.


At the time of my review, this was the current Rotten Tomatoes score!

To say that this movie is about Acid Attacks understates the whole premise of this movie, as this movie acts as a way to draw attention to the on-going issue that plagues India. Acid, despite being recently ruled a controlled chemical in India, is still actively sold and is largely unregulated.

The description from IMDB is as follows:

The trials and triumphs of Malti, an acid attack survivor. From the investigation of the attack to the court proceedings, the medical treatment to the emotional healing. Chhapaak is the story of the unquashable human spirit.

This movie touched me, and as you all know, if you have read my previous posts about Bollywood movies, I have a soft spot for them. This movie is superbly done, and I have to commend all those involved in making this movie. This is drawing attention towards something that should not happen in civilized society. And as this is based on a true story, it is even more important that they use this calibre of actors/actresses to bring forth this issue.

Deepika Padukone is amazing, and I cannot stress that enough. Having seen this movie a few times now, and each time it hits me in the feels, in all the right ways. I cannot express my love for this movie enough.

Sickening numbers of acid attacks

As you can see, acid attacks are something of a bad thing. And these are only the reported attacks, there is most likely, many that go unreported due to acid killing people. Not that I am trying to turn this review of this gorgeous movie into a political statement, but, it sorta is a political statement, that change is required.

More often than not, these attacks are by men, against women, and usually because those men cannot have that woman, so he will ‘ruin’ her for all other men. It is a sickening thing. But I digress, lets get back to the movie shall we?
