In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee said that, "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," Mr Chatterjee added. Mr Chatterjee also said that 'Bareilly Ki Barfi is definitely worth a watch.'
"It is happy to be what it is: a modest barfi from nondescript Bareilly. A bite wouldn't be a bad idea," he wrote.
Bareilly Ki Barfi clashed at the box office with Partition: 1947 and VIP 2: Lalkar on Friday.
