The magic of Anurag Basu-directed 'Barfi!' continues to set the cash registers ringing at the Box Office. The simple, heartwarming tale of love between a hearing and speech impaired boy and an autistic girl, has earned Rs 100 crore abroad in just 10 days. 'Barfi' has also been chosen as India's official entry for the Academy Awards in the Best Foreign Language Film category.
The movie, starring Ranbir Kapoor as Murphy aka Barfi, and Priyanka Chopra as Jhilmil, has got brilliant reviews for its simple, moving narrative that tugs at the heartstrings of the audiences. The movie has also become a kind of showcase for the hitherto-unknown Darjeeling, where it is set.
