This Friday you have two movies hitting the theatres, which certainly include Baar Baar Dekho. The film fall sunder the genre of romantic drama, which is directed by Nitya Mehra who marks her debut in B Town. The film has Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles that have together the first time on silver screen. Besides, you have Sarika, Ram Kapoor, Taaha Shah Badusha, Sayani Gupta and Rohan Joshi in the key roles, while Rajit Kapur is seen in a special appearance role. The film is produced by Karan Johar along Farhan Akhtar under the banners of Dharma Productions and Excel Entertainment in association with Eros. The film was shot in UK and India, well; it’s time to have a look inside the film to get the crux of the same in the following paragraphs:


The film Baar Baar Dekho falls under romantic drama film, which is basically a love story. The film unleashes a number of flashbacks and flash forwards and thus is seen moving around the time travel. It is about a person (Sid in the role of Jai Varma) who is love with the lady Divya Varma since ages but he seems to deny it for some reason or the other till he realizes that she happens to be his lady love. At one end he claims that he has known his lady love since childhood, but on the other side, he tends to forget and moves ahead in life in the future as shown in the film. In a sense the film rolls back in the past, present and even in the future to check how love is happening at various junctures. So, how it really works is really worth catching up in your close by theatres.


Though the makers of the film have claimed that the film is not about love journey taking a flip and flop to the past-present and future, yet it somewhere falls out in this category only. There is no doubt to the fact that the film happens to have a unique and interesting story but the way it is presented in the travel journey style makes the audience confusing. Rather the film needs too much of focus to catch the various tenses in the film in order to understand. Thus it can be a win-lose movie for the audience. Those you are smart and careful can very easily understand and enjoy the film, while the others in the group who have come to catch a film in a lazy style can end up getting into a confused state.

Now, let’s talk about the performances starting with Sidharth Malhotra who has played the character called Jai Varma. He has been incredible in his role despite being new in B Town, he has the perfect shape and flair to perform over the silver screen with one of the best ways and performance.  In fact, at many of the places, he has simply overshadowed Katrina Kaif who seems to have worked the first time in any movie. At times, she is even seen reduced to a lady with sex quotient with her bare body having scantily dressed attires almost seen in two pieces. But in terms of performance and emotional reactions and playing the shades of the same, she seems lagging behind. Many of the people would see Katrina in this avatar the first time, the bold portray of her body flaunting her figures in bikinis and bras can make people simply go crazy about her. The others like Sarika, Ram Kapoor and Taaha Shah Badusha in the supporting roles are also seen par in many ways.
