Ranbir Kapoor … New Barfi in town


There is something about the Kapoors of Bollywood, they partially own the word showmanship. There has always been one in each generation, who was a popular star and a great actor. The pedigree is dumfounding and can be traced back the genesis of Indian cinema it self. From Prithviraj Kapoors humble beginning as the son of a Punjabi policeman posted in Peshawar in 1901 to what is now the first family on Indian Cinema. To add a trivia into the mix Prithviraj Kapoors first lead role in the Indian Cinema was in 1929 in a movie called “Cinema Girl”.

The latest of the brood is definitely Ranbir kapoor. Son of actors Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, brother of Riddhima Kapoor Sahni. He is the grandson of actor and filmmaker Raj Kapoor, great grandson of Prithviraj Kapoor, nephew of actors Randhir Kapoor and Rajiv Kapoor, grand-nephew of actors Shashi Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor, and first-cousin of actresses Karisma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor, sound like a thoroughbred horse

This post is essentially about Ranbir, I saw the Trailer of Barfi on youtube, and it was a compelling piece. Great  Camerawork, stunning visuals and a very catchy background tune from Pritam. It has Priyanka Chopra, who I find is the most versatile actress who looks gorgeous…in fact I should call the bravest actress around and  Ileana D’cruz to lend the movie the feminine charm. With no Plot available the movie seems to cycle between grim, drama and romance. Essentially a story of a Happy go Lucky def and dumb kid on the block. There is something very french about the move, the french new wave cinema def has an influence over it. Anurag Basu the (director) definitely is a great with his tools of trade. The background score is preppy and it the trailer has a great fan following.

From his noticeable performance in his debut movie he has been able to carry on the legacy of his family. He was charmer in wakeup Sid, he made us glued to our seats in 2010 Raajneeti with his powerful performance and made the critics go bonkers with his performance in Rockstar. With the just released trailer of BARFI he seems to be keeping up with his expectations.

Barfi..the movie is scheduled to be released around 15th spetember
