Film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted, “‘Barfi’ has done remarkable business. The film gathered steam with each passing day, rising to the maximum on Saturday and Sunday. It was released in less than 700 cinema halls in India, a tiny release as compared to the biggies. Occupancy at multiplexes was fantastic.” tweeted .

Well, this is just the beginning. Barfi! still has time to earn its bucks…
Do you think Kareena Kapoor’s Heroine, releasing on 21 this month will be a hurdle to Barfi’s earnings?
