Set in the 1970s in a pretty corner of India, Barfi! is the story of three young people who learn that love can neither be defined nor contained by society's norms of normal and abnormal. Barfi, a hearing and speech impaired boy falls in love with Shruti. In spite of her deep affection for Barfii, Shruti gives into societal and parental pressure to marry a 'normal' man and lead a 'normal' life. Many years later their paths cross once again when Barfi, now in love with Jhilmil, is on the run from the police. Barfi is desperately seeking Jhilmil, who has gone missing.


Like a story from classical mythology. A boy's mother dies at a very young age and he is heartbroken. His father remarries and the boy is introduced to her on his birthday. For him, his mother had returned. One problem, his mother is out to get the family fortune, because as in all Bollywood movies, the family is very wealthy. This is a long term scam though and will take years to pull off. The boy is so infatuated with his mother that he takes every word of hers as gospel. She has him work in the fields like a peasant and denies him an education.
