Looking to escape her mundane life in the small town of Bareilly, only daughter Bitti (Kriti Sanon) runs away. Before she gets too far, she stumbles upon a novel called “Bareilly Ki Barfi” and is surprised to find that the female protagonist is exactly like her. Believing herself in love, Bitti embarks on a quest to find the author, Pritam Vidrohi (the scene-stealing Rajkummar Rao), with the help of the local printing press-owner Chirag Dubey (Ayushmann Khurrana, Shubh Mangal Savdhan). This crowd-pleasing journey of love takes a break from the usual Bollywood stock to create a sweet story with uniquely real characters.
Opening night reception: Jan 13 at 6pm
