The movie is about the colorful presentation of love and romance. The director Anurag Basu has been successful in presenting bittersweet incidents in the of the movies central character Barfi, played by Ranbir Kapoor.

Barfi’s real name is Murphy, his parent named him after a radio brand but when he said his name, people hear it as ‘Barfi’, the name he became known as. Barfi’s unique ways of determining the his close friends and his silly acts are some of the entertaining parts in the movie. Ilenna D’ Cruz is featured as  Shruti Gosh, Barfi’s first love, Bhola Raj Sapkota is features as Barfi’s his best friend, and Priyanka Chopra is features as Jilmil Chatterji.

Every actor has done justice to the character he/she played. Ranbir Kapoor has done an awesome job in expressing everything without a any dialogues. He has perfectly expressed his sadness, happiness, anger, anxiety, and every other feelings.

Priyanka Chopra is presented in an unglamorous role but, she has done justice to her character by doing just what she need to do. Without being glamorous Priyanka doesn’t fail to charm the viewrs. As Barfi’s first love, D’Cruz has managed to win the hearts of the viewers. Barfi’s best friend Bhola only appears in few roles and he has also done justice to his role.

The songs are melodious, background scores are good and the movie has been a great attempt to explore the life of a disabled character.

sherlyn_chopra_mona_twitter

She tweeted "I’ve been receiving contact numbers on my twitter handle noncontact@sherlynchopra.com of those who wish 2 enjoy physical intimacy with me at a price."

In the past, on various occasions, I’ve had sex for money. Out of all my past experiences of paid sex, there’s not a single one that I remember having indulged in out of free will. But ever since, I got back from LA in July this year, there has been a shift in my level of consciousness. I now understand that I cannot claim to be ‘free’ and continue to make choices and decisions under obligation.

Sherlyn adds, "I enjoy oozing sexuality in still pictures and in moving visuals. I enjoy being a tease. I enjoy sex when it is the end result of an uncontrollable lust and/or attraction. Sorry to disappoint you but I’m no longer available for paid sex. Why? "Because I’ve come to realize that I derive no pleasure or joy out of physical intimacy that is pursued out of obligation (mental/emotional/financial or any other kind). I now believe that there is in infinite power and infinite intelligence within each one of us and if we persist in having a child like faith and a child like belief in the powers of the spirit/the subconscious mind, and then there shall be no lack of tangible n intangibles riches in our lives."

Controversial model Poonam Pandey likes to remain in limelight by exposing herself (or, at least talking about shedding her clothes). India’s victory in the Cricket world cup and her promise to get naked in front of the Indian team helped her raise in popularity. Although she didn’t keep (or rather, she wasn’t allowed to keep) her promise, she got immensely popular after that.

To the fire of her popularity alive time and again she keeps feeding the audience with hot and spicy photos and videos. Recently she posted some bathroom shots in her Twitter account. The hot photos helped to remind the people about her again. I have never been that fond of her body or sex or nudity, but the Independence day shot she posted in Twitter was something else. Indian flag in one hand, hands spread wide inviting for an embrace, wide smile and a look towards the sky – this is the sexiest post of the model.
