Barfi // Vivah

Watched 2 Bollywood films recently, through the magic and convenience of YouTube. After a dry spell, I think I’ve rekindled my love for this culture and genre of films. The music, song, dance – all so magical! The romantic escapist in me is satisfied.


Story about a mute and deaf man, and 2 women in his life – one of them with autism. The film is a true work of art in the aspect of communication without words.


Reviews didn’t treat this movie too kindly, describing it as lacking in any plot or storyline, making it more documentary than film-like. But for some reason, I sat through the whole 2 and a half hours, captivated by the very mundaneness of the characters’ lives and relationship development (not forgetting the music and vocals which were superb!). And there was a little climax at the end after all, which made me feel slightly rewarded 🙂


I love Bollywood.
