Ranbir is a good actor. I watched this movie a couple of days back. I noticed that I was laughing a lot in the first half. But somehow I felt I had seen these scenes somewhere! The last scene where Ranbir throws his shoe up for Priyanka to notice...reminded me of Kamal in 'Sadma'...the last railway station scene where he acts like a monkey.

I don't think this movie is worthy of an entry for Oscar. Second half was total confusion!

Renu September 28, 2012  

I havent seen the movie, but saw those scenes on TV..they are copied, because they are exactly the same.

deeps September 28, 2012  

copy of copies...
there seems to be nothing original anymore...

DWei September 28, 2012  

How very original. ._.

Rama Ananth September 29, 2012  

We saw the movie, and it did look like a third rate thriller, as aptly described by the police inspector, one could not make head or tail of such a clumsy story. And each and every scene seems to be a copy,the whole film is literally copied from other famous pictures. It must have been easy for the director, and te actors to keep watching such scenes and practice them for this movie.
With so much visible coping, they are really stupid to think they can try their luck for the Oscars. Great, hope indeed!
Now a days it is all the more visible if you have copied because everything is out in the Internet, not like the olden days when though itmight have been copied, not many people would know about it. It is all the more important, that original story only comes up.

Knew about the scene from Notebook and Koshish, sad!!!

Avipsa November 07, 2012  

Well, if some of the copied scenes of a movie are criticized in such a manner, i would say we should criticize each and every movie of bollywood. the action movies which almost make a profit of 300 crores in box office are also not original. every action sequences and comedy sequences of bollywood movies are inspired from hollywood. Barfi has copied scenes from Mr. Bean?? plz tell me where is Mr Bean inspired from???? Yes, from Chaplin... the conversation scene between Barfi and the cop where barfi started answering from his birth is from the Goonies..are u people sure that the director has copied it and it is not his own innovation?? or once the scene has been used in a perticular movie so it cant be used in any other?? then every love making scene or hugging scene of hero and heroines are copied from any other movie... and if we come about Oscar nomination..can u assure that every Oscar nominated film are 100% original?? how can u overlook that people have enjoyed a movie after so long time?? how can u ignore the beautiful narration of the movie..the superb acting of the three main cast?? And if u want everything to be original then start criticizing from Rabindranath Tagore..because most of songs are inspired from some other songs that includes foreign tunes also..plz..try to accept the good things...

Avipsa November 07, 2012  

something more to say...

u cannot judge or criticize a film with some of its copied scenes..for a constructive criticism plz criticize those scenes also which are not COPIED... and let me tell u one thing that the execution of those copied scenes in the movie and to make it relevant with the story is also a creativity...Thums Up for Barfi!!
