Bareilly Ki Barfi is the story of Bitti (played by Kriti Sanon) who rebels against the conservative norms set by her family.

Her parents want to get her married, but Bitti just doesn't want to settle down.

Enter Ayushmann Khurana, who is in love with her, and enlists Rujkummar Rao's help to win her heart — but she ends up falling for him instead.

The premise of a love triangle between the leads seems very predictable, but maybe this time with Rajkummar Rao's acting skills, and Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari (who has directed Nil Battey Sannata) in the director's chair —there will be a fresh spin on an old tale.

If we go by Aishwiny Iyer Tiwari's past work like Nil Battey Sannata, we can expect the film to be a realistic take on relationships with a hint of humour and very real, grounded settings rather than the grandeur we are used to in films with love triangles, like Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. 

Kriti Sanon, who was recently seen in Raabta, said that playing a 'bratty' UP girl is like a fresh change for her. "It's a very tomboyish character. She is a girl living in Bareilly but doing things on her own terms. She is someone who is quite bratty and who questions the basic norms. What I really like about the film is also the fact that every relationship is shown very nicely. Also, for me to play a UP girl was very fresh," IANS quoted her as saying.

Here's the trailer of the film which will be out on 18 August, along with the Shraddha Kapoor starrer Haseena Parkar.

Which will do better at the box office? Only time will tell:
