This Darjeeling boy was born
With the Radio Murphy on..!
So, his parents name him Murphy
But when he says, it sounds like Barfi!
He is deaf, mute and financially deficient
But his survival instincts - super efficient!
Barfi teaches you to live and smile
With a sense of humour, without guile!
Then there is this girl who’s autistic
Rich, loveless, scared and pessimistic!
Barfi introduces her to sunshine,
Great outdoors and love divine!
Their final coming together
Happens after lots of bother!
With an Inspector on their chase
Whom Barfi matches race for race!
Their union is aided by his ex flame
Who suffers silent guilt and blame!
Ranbir Kapoor – just lives the Barfi role
Priyanka and Ileana have acted with soul!
Saurabh Shukla’s Inspector antics
Set new standards of histrionics!
Anurag Basu, this movie’s Director
Is a young and tough cancer survivor!
Hence his handling of the film – sensitive
With a storyline that’s moving yet positive!
This film presents you a slice of life
With lessons to laugh amidst strife!
Barfi! Leaves you with a huge smile
That stays with you for quite a while!
My rating for the movie is a 5-Star
For direction and acting above par!
