Baar Baar Dekho has been in the news for its unusual plot. Sidharth Malhotra’s character goes forward in time in some days. Speculations are rife that time travel is at the core of the story. And that it is inspired by movies such as ‘About Time’, ‘Click’. The film’s producer, Karan Johar tries to sum up the concept of the movie “What if you were given a chance to see the future of your relationship? We all know we go through our relationship traumas. What if every single one of us could see the future, how good or bad it would be?”
There is high pedigree behind this movie. So, it is highly unlikely that Baar Baar Dekho would be a blatant copy of any film. Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar, and Ritesh Sidhwani have joined forces to produce Baar Baar Dekho. Director Nitya Mehra makes her directorial debut in Hindi cinema with this romantic comedy-drama movie. She has assisted on Life of Pi, Namesake and Reluctant Fundamentalist. Also, she was previously an assistant to Farhan Akhtar in Lakshya and Don.
Story Behind the Smokescreen
Baar Baar Dekho is a love story, which tracks the journey of two individuals Jay (Sidharth Malhotra) and Diya (Katrina Kaif) from 18 years to 60. It unfolds through flashbacks and flash forwards. Jai falls in love with Diya but develops cold feet on the wedding day. The story then takes a turn when Jai suddenly starts ageing – 10 days on the first day, two years on the second day and 16 years on the third day – and worries if he will die on the fourth day and then has to clear the mystery surrounding the strange process of ageing. Jai then travels back and forth across time and sees what the future holds for him and decides to mend his mistakes to relive his life with the right decisions.
Sunglasses Cause a Retro Stir
Baar Baar Dekho has made head turns and goes bang bang with their hit song – Kaala Chashma. It is the revamped version of singer Amar Arshi’s 1990’s Punjabi chartbuster ‘Tenu Kala Chashma Jajta Ve‘, which has been the heartbeat of the Punjabi music scene for over a decade. The producers acquired the copyrights to the song. As the video hit the web, people skipped a heartbeat on seeing those perfectly chiselled abs.
The makers of the film have left no choice for the viewers but to baar baar dekho Katrina and her oh-so-toned abs. Katrina and Sidharth sport three looks – a carefree young girl, a short-haired professional and a peppy bride. Sidharth sports a rugged look, a young professional and a mature look with a beard.
Days are few, and the movie is new. Looks are sizzling and hot in the preview. The movie seems good and should come out flying with hit ratings and review. Man shayad kahe ke Baar Baar Dekho!
