Bareilly Ki Barfi sees Kriti Sanon play, Bitti. She is a rebellious small-town girl who lives her life to the fullest.

Bitti falls for the author of a novel titled Bareilly Ki Barfi, without even meeting him. She sets off on a chase to find the author (played by Rajkummar Rao) which is when she comes across Ayushmann Khurrana, who promises to help her. Little does she know that Ayushmann is the ghost writer of the book. And then the drama begins.

The film’s music has been well received and the tracks Sweety Tera Drama and Twist Kamariya have become hits.

Bareilly Ki Barfi also got positive reviews from the critics with all of them praising the nuanced portrayal of small town characters by the cast.

The Mishras, Bitti’s chalk-and-cheese parents played by Pankaj Tripathi and Seema Pahwa, received praise from the critics.
