Nitya Mehra‘s ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ is a love story blended with time travel. It put forwards the message that family and relationships are more important than ambition. So if you have messed up with your relationship and had a chance to go back into the past and ‘fix’ it, what would you do?
Jai Verma (Sidharth Malhotra) and Diya Kapoor (Katrina Kaif) are childhood sweethearts. Where Jai is a brilliant ambitious mathematician, Diya is an artist who dreams of becoming Mrs. Verma soon. A few days before their marriage
When the two are about to tie the knot, Jai feels that he is not ready as yet, this leads to an argument between the lovers with Kat giving him an ultimatum. Jai tries to drown his sorrow in a bottle of champagne and goes to sleep. BOOM! The time travel starts. Every time Jai goes to sleep, he wakes up in a different year, a different time and place.
So what does the future have in store for Jai and Diya? This will be unveiled when you watch the film.
Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif are looking beautiful together. The audience will be hooked to Sid’s looks and Kat’s abs. But a certain something is lacking. The story is nouvelle but does not sum up perfectly.
Malhotra has a perplexed expression on his face throughout the film, as though wondering what is he doing. He is a wonderful actor but the screenplay does not give him much to emote. Katrina is looking gorgeous as always and will hold the attention of the audience with her lithe bod. But on the acting scale, the beauty still has to go a long way.
Ram Kapoor who is depicting the role of Katrina Kaif’s father has done a good job. The rest of the cast has done a reasonably okayish work. The music and the cinematography of the film is top of the score. Ravi K Chandran’s camera has captured the beautiful landscape of Thailand, Glasgow in all their glory. The songs are quite hummable but the best of the lot is ‘Kaala Chasma’.
‘Baar Baar Dekho’, is a one-time watch.
