Celeb reviews of Bareilly Ki Barfi, which arrived from stars like Karan Johar, Varun Dhawan, Sushant Singh Rajput and Arjun Kapoor, had everything good to say about the movie: "Bareilly Ki Barfi is warm, funny and delightful...the performances are superb! Dialogues have many laugh out loud crackling moments," tweeted Karan while Varun added: "Bareilly Ki Barfi is a fun and honest film with super performances."
In his review of the film for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee wrote: "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."
Bareilly Ki Barfi casts Kriti Sanon as a rebellious character, who blurs the fine line between genders and Ayushmann as a scheming lover-boy. Rajkummar Rao is brilliant as the naive, bechara Pritam Vidrohi while Pankaj Tripathi's performance as Bitti's father also cannot be overlooked.
Bareilly Ki Barfi released along with Partition: 1947 and VIP 2: Lalkar on Friday.
