BARFI! is a Hindi language drama about a Nepalese deaf-mute man who has unrequited feelings for one woman and who also begins a friendship with an autistic girl. He kidnaps the girl in order to raise some money for his own father's operation but has no ill intentions towards her.

Language

There are infrequent unsubtitled uses of the Hindi equivalent of 'bastard'.

Threat

In one scene the main character prepares for the kidnapping by dabbing some chloroform onto a napkin and holding it over his sidekick's face. His sidekick then passes out. A policeman is later seen putting the same napkin to his face, also causing him to pass out. The scenes are filmed in a comic style and any sense of threat is unrealistic and neither prolonged nor intense.

Violence

There is a scene of mild violence in which the father of the kidnapped girl finally lashes out at the main character and hits him with a stick. The main character quickly escapes and runs away. There is no detail in the violence.

The main character is seen smoking in two scenes but the film carries strong anti-smoking warnings during the film's opening captions.
