There’s a timeless beauty in content driven cinema. It chooses a topic that is relevant to the times and the world we live in and it goes beyond the basic intention of entertainment; it makes you think, provides you valuable insights and most importantly, makes a genuine contribution to the world of cinema.
Ashwni Iyer Tiwari, with her debut movie Nil Battey Sannata, made a very impressive statement that she means content and quality in her films. A story of a mother and a daughter from a small town and that mother’s determined efforts to make her daughter get quality education so that she doesn’t have to suffer and work like a maid and can have a better future.
The film instantly became favorite in movie community and critics applauded the movie for its simplicity and realism. Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari proved her directorial skills and smart storytelling approach. Now, she is all set to create the magic once again with another small town story and this time, it is a love triangle in the form of Bareilly Ki Barfi.
Bareilly Ki Barfi’s trailer was highly entertaining and it is looking like a full on hilarious ride. With a brilliant cast of Ayushmann Khurrana, Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari can make an effective movie talking about small town girls’ big dreams. love, family and so much.
Tiwari intelligently displays the culture of small towns so the desi feel is always there. It also makes the movie very relatable, away from the glamor and unnecessary glittering.
The promos and songs are looking amazing and Bareilly Ki Barfi can even go a notch higher than Nil Battey Sannata with a smart director like Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari. Content driven movies have good character developments. It was evident in Nil Battey Sannata so it would be expected from Bareilly Ki Barfi too.
Let’s hope the movie entertains us as it promised in the trailer.
