Is Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra’s ‘Barfi!’ a silent film?

That’s the feeling we get from the promos of Anurag Basu’s love triangle

Our heart definitely lights up as bright as a 100-watt bulb when we watch the promos and songs of Ranbir Kapoor-Priyanka Chopra-Ileana D’Cruz’s sweet love story, Barfi!. And we decided we would watch this one for sure when we found out that the Anurag Basu film is off the beaten nature trail, and not made up of stuff that usual Bollywood prem kahanis are famous for.

In this film neither Ranboo (a deaf and mute guy) nor PeeCee (an autistic girl) will whisper sweet nothings in each other’s ears. It’s a romance that happens by way of Ankhon hi ankhon mein ishara, just like Dev Anand’s song from CID.

Our birdie the buddy told us that Barfi! is a silent film. But it’s not like Charlie Chaplin’s comedies that had only melodious background scores to take forward the narrative or, closer to home, like Kamal Hassan’s experimental film Pushpak. Basu’s love story has dialogues, but bare minimal bytes. Perhaps these lines are left to the newcomer Ileana? We, frankly, have no clue.

Our friendly spy confirmed our suspicions and revealed: “Barfi! is almost a silent film and experimental to the core. The mood of the film is such that there are minimal dialogues required in the narrative and it is mainly the background score that plays right through the story.”

Hmm, looks like there won’t be lovey dovey sher aur shayaris in this prem katha.
