Baar Baar Dekho review: Smell the Bollywood masala in Sidharth, Katrina’s film


You wake up and realise that it’s going be the last day of your life. You look back at it and regret the moments you missed in search of a dream. But, this isn’t over yet. You can still alter the situation. The catch is you can change just one thing, but will you be able to spot that one tiny thing.

Jai (Sidharth Malhotra) is a genius who wants to make it big in the world of mathematics. His research papers are accepted at various schools throughout the world and he is patiently waiting for a call from the Cambridge University, his dream destination. But before that he has to get married to Diya (Katrina Kaif), a girl fond of her family and India.

It’s a clash of different thought processes. While Jai is concerned about his own career, Diya is all for the community and how our happiness depends on people around us.

There is no time machine, but time travel has been used as the narrative technique. Our professor keeps going back and forth in time and that doesn’t stop him from shaking a leg or enjoying exotic locales. In short, Nitya Mehra makes sure you don’t miss any of the typical Bollywood ingredients.

Baar Baar Dekho is not Run Lola Run or Back To The Future or even Vantage Point. It’s nowhere close to The Butterfly Effect either. It’s a typical ‘masala’ entertainer that wants to re-establish the emotions that Karan Johar and his team have done in many films. Johar is one of the producers of Baar Baar Dekho.
