A livewire Ranbir Kapoor wows you in the first song from Anurag Basu’s film Barfi.
The movie has Ranbir playing a deaf and mute character named Murphy, but since he can’t distinguish between the sound of ‘B’ and ‘M’, he calls himself Barfi. Despite his handicap, Barfi is a bundle of joy.
The song shows Barfi doing a number of antics, from trying to stop a speeding truck to evading a tubby cop. Barfi is a prankster who takes every situation in his stride. He tries to woo a local girl (Ileana) and proffers his heart at her feet. He also hangs around with an autistic girl played by Priyanka Chopra.
The song ‘Ala Barfi’ is a light-hearted teasing track composed by Pritam. It features Ranbir Kapoor doing Chaplinesque antics, be it warding off a darban, or falling off a ledge, or doing pull-ups, or cycling around the verdant countryside.
Director Anurag Basu has said that Barfi is not a serious film, despite its leading protagonist having different disabilities. It’s a light-hearted comedy and a touching love story.
‘Barfi’ is slated to release on September 14.
