Baar Baar Dekho is essentially a love story, but a pretty unique one. Here’s a concept never touched upon in Bollywood. Though director Nitya Mehra has decided to debut with a rather stereotypical prem kahaani (A serious boy & a happy-go-lucky girl, cheerful in a relationship, but boy jittery about marriage, career, et al), her time-travel theme is interesting. The first half of the film is especially pretty breezy and Sid-Kat keep you interested in this saga with a lot of steamy romance, family melodrama and entertainment.

THE GOOD
Sidharth and Katrina are looking purrrrfect throughout the film. So much so that you can’t take your eyes off them, especially Kat. The script of the film touches upon a diatribe many modern-day couples face, what with the “You don’t spend enough time with me” crawling into the marriage slowly and gradually. Hence a wide portion of the audience will relate to it BIG TIME.

THE BAD
But there are a few scenes wherein the two look amateurish. Those are the frames where they sport graying hair, aged skin and are facing some troubles in their married life. The two young actors couldn’t pull this off as convincingly as, say, an aged Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Badlapur (how flawless he was, remember?) And how the hell does a pregnant woman drive to the hospital herself when her water breaks – there are scenes in the film that we didn’t understand!!
