In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote that 'there is sufficient charm and chutzpah' in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's Bareilly Ki Barfi.
"Bareilly Ki Barfi isn't the kind of film that will sweep you off your feet, but there is sufficient charm and chutzpah in this effervescent brew to keep you invested all the way through. There is indeed something to be said about a Bollywood romantic comedy that lays so much store by its script, its relatable setting and believable characters. The creative choices the director makes reflect amply in the final outcome," wrote Mr Chatterjee.
Bareilly Ki Barfi is now running at theatres along with A Gentleman, Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, Qaidi Band and Tamil movie Vivegam.
