Barfi

Deaf/mute boy meets autistic girl – an unusual topic for a Bollywood movie and an unusual treatment of an important issue. Chaplinesque and full of slapstick humour and much pathos, with some great acting performance, though at times its a bit too cute and gooey. Certainly worth a watch but it does drag a bit at times, and the music can be a bit irritating. Priyanka is unrecognizable as the autistic girl. 65/100
