Baar Baar Dekho Critics Review And Ratings 

Ratings:1.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site: News18
For a film about romance and love, Baar Baar Dekho is curiously lacking the messiness of real relationships, and trades in quick-fix solutions to complex personal issues. At 2 hours and 21 minutes it’s way too long, and never once succeeded in making me care if Jai and Diya would end up happily ever after.I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five. Baar Baar Dekho? No thanks, ek baar kaafi tha!

Ratings:2/5 Review By: Anupama Chopra Site: FilmCompanion
Baar Baar Dekho has been jointly produced by Excel Entertainment and Dharma Productions. The production houses are the high priests of a sub-genre I call posh people angst – basically stories about affluent, attractive people.But none of it is enough to sustain you through the length of this desperately flawed film. I’m going with two stars but keeping my faith in Nitya. That opening sequence holds promise of greater things.

On the whole, Baar Baar Dekho is too confusing a film to be understood and enjoyed by the public. Despite hit music and a good-looking lead pair, the film will meet with a poor fate at the box-office. Its poor initial is another minus point.

There are timeless love stories and then stories involving time travel. BBD belongs to the latter. Pleasant and fairly engaging but a tad tedious (like mathematics) to evoke a Baar Baar viewing. The foot-tapping kala chashma song in the end infuses that much required energy and zest into the film.

Maths genius Jay Varma (Sidharth Malhotra) has the gift of time travel, that miraculous thing which he can use to make things right between him and lady love Diya Kapoor (Katrina Kaif). What can go wrong with that most intriguing premise, even if we’ve seen similar stuff in About Time and The Time Traveller’s Wife? Quite a lot, actually, as it turns out: Baar Baar Dekho doesn’t have anything that can entice us into repeat viewings, let alone a single one, because the execution is flat and banal.

Ratings:2/5 Review By: Sarita Tanwar Site: DNA
The problem with Baar Baar Dekho is that the story is frustrating and inane. And despite the fact that Hindi movie audiences are known to accept the most bizarre plots (like Rab Ne Bana De Jodi where a woman can’t recognize her husband without glass and a moustache), this one is just not believable. What causes the time travel? Is it the thread? The pandit? Is it all a dream? You will be left grappling with these questions till half the film is over. All that going in the future, then past, then future again before finally coming back to the present makes BBD a repetitive bore.

Ratings:4/5 Review By: Subhash Jha Site: NDTV
Debutant director Nitya Mehra’s Baar Baar Dekho is unlike any romantic yarn – I hesitate from giving it that loosely-used term the ‘rom-com’. It is the ultimate what-if saga, narrated with a tender care and subdued splendour that makes every moment between the lead pair precious and gladdening.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Khalid Mohammed  Site: SpotBoye
Technically BBD is top-grade, but the to use the corporate argo, the content is a mind-bender. Mehra’s direction is serviceable, concentrating largely on the star value of Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif. The question is: can they act or just look glam? With all its ups and downs, then, is this time piece worth a multiplex visit? For a one-time watch, sure go ahead. Baar baar? Absolutely NO way.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Surabhi  Site: Koimoi
The real problems in Mehra’s film starts with its wavering pace. While the film revolves around the concept of time travel, our clock seems to slow down as a viewer in the first half. Also, in general, the film’s long run time is slightly disappointing. Baar Baar Dekho is an ‘Ek Baar Dekho’ affair. A fresh pairing of good looking actors, good music and a commercial love story is the mainstay. I’ll go with a 2.5/5 for this romantic drama.

It will be my honour to be known not as Lokesh Dharmani, the movie reviewer. The one who called out the lack of depth in your film, the superficial treatment, the half-baked characters and a climax, one could see from a mile. I would rather be known as your grandfather…er …a pained viewer who spent 30 precious five dirhams on your movie. Your… dada…nana…actually no one. Just a viewer. And a reviewer.

The phase in which he’s an old, dejected soul looks terribly contrived. Even Kaif cannot pull off a fake grey wig and doesn’t age too well. Those phases are amateurish, but what keeps this love story afloat are the moments in which the couple try to work through their skewed work-life balance. It’s a problem that many modern-day couples face and the diatribe about ‘you don’t spend enough time with me’ hits close homeThis is no baar baar dekho, which means to watch again and again. Reserve this for a one-time watch.

Ratings: 3.5/5 Review By: Indicine

The script of Baar Baar Dekho has clearly been written and rewritten many times because the moments portrayed in the film have a deftness about them. There’s a certain sense of déjà vu for the normal viewer as the story is very relatable. Who wouldn’t want to see their future and set things right? Nitya Mehra does a commendable job at utilising the full potential of this unique (maybe not so much) concept. Baar Baar Dekho doesn’t have too many rip-roaring moments as the emotions are kept subtle, and it entertains without going overboard. Technically, Baar Baar Dekho looks like a movie mounted on a big scale even though it is a medium budget film. This is due to the smart production design and the technically efficient cinematography. The editing is fluid and none of the scenes feel displaced. The music of Baar Baar Dekho is a strong point. Kala Chashma has already become a rage. And other songs like Khair Mangdi, Nachde Ne Saare and Dariya all become ear worms. This is a well put together soundtrack which suits the nature and tone of the movie very well. A good all round effort.

When BAAR BAAR DEKHO’s promos were released, it gave a feel that the film was a sincere attempt in the genre of time travel. In reality, the film’s screenplay (Sri Rao, Nitya Mehra, Anuvab Pal) completely gives the film in. Besides being confusing, the film’s screenplay is totally slow and un-relatable, which makes it extremely difficult to find resonance with the audience. The film’s dialogues (Anvita Dutt) are very average with no outstanding one liners or anything to that effect. Though humor is sorely missing in the film, it is loaded with moments of unintentional comedy. Despite having assisted on successful films like LIFE OF PI, DON and LAKSHYA, debutante director Nitya Mehra struggles while narrating BAAR BAAR DEKHO. The way in which she has handled the aspect of time travel in the film is very weak, which only goes onto prove that such genres definitely require an ‘experienced hand’ for the film to be worth its salt. As the film progresses, one does start feeling about BAAR BAAR DEKHO being heavily ‘inspired’ by the Hollywood flicks like the Nicholas Cage starrer THE FAMILY MAN and the Adam Sandler starrer CLICK. While BAAR BAAR DEKHO’s first half (especially the first 30 minutes) is engaging, the film starts collapsing piece by piece as Sidharth’s character starts time travelling. The film’s second half only gets worse and tests your patience as Sidharth starts travelling back and forth in time. It won’t be wrong to say that, while BAAR BAAR DEKHO’s essence is Indian, the concept is totally alien. All of this results in BAAR BAAR DEKHO becoming a mash up of sorts, thus, landing nowhere. And when the film’s ridiculous suspense is revealed towards the end, it totally shows how much the makers of the film take the audiences for granted.

After a row between these two lovers before their wedding day, Jai is miraculously gifted the ability to travel forward in his life. He gets to visit several momentous occasions in his life such as his honeymoon in Thailand, his wife’s delivery in London and his post-retirement days. Some phases, such as the one where he’s trying to be good husband, are engaging, but some are downright cheesy. Malhotra, who was producer Karan Johar’s discovery in Student Of The Year, doesn’t have the heft to pull off such a substantial role. The phase in which he’s an old, dejected soul looks terribly contrived. Even Kaif cannot pull off a fake grey wig and doesn’t age too well. Those phases are amateurish, but what keeps this love story afloat are the moments in which the couple try to work through their skewed work-life balance. It’s a problem that many modern-day couples face and the diatribe about ‘you don’t spend enough time with me’ hits close home. Both Kaif and Malhotra have enough sizzle to keep us guessing.

The chemistry between Sid and Kat is stupendous, and certainly, after this film, we want to ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ them together again. They do exude a certain kind of freshness which can be tapped more on the reel. How Jai’s character grows and what happens to his relationship with Diya—their journey, hardships and struggle in keeping up with the tale or rather twist in time is what ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ has to offer. It has a subtle yet very important message underlying which we all must understand and try to live every moment with the person we love the most! And yes, for once I am happily saying ‘chill, if you can’t hold that mathematical equation for once’, as there’s more to life than one plus one two!

Ratings: 2/5 Review by: Tushar P Joshi Site: Bollywood Life

Baar Baar Dekho is an extremely good looking film with fine production values. When you have Sidharth and Katrina as your leads your poster could look like a page out of a high fashion magazine! These two look really good together and film makers should cast them in the future (with no time travel) and give them better scripts. Nitya keeps the premise easy and light in the first half, we get to see Jai and Diya up close and understand their values and notions about life. Jai’s ambitious personality and career driven hunger for success is diagonally opposite to Diya’s want to find joy and happiness in simple and small things. Nitya does a good job of creating some really beautiful moments between these two. The dialogues aren’t heavy or melodramatic, they sound like what two grownup adults would be saying while having an argument or making up. I liked Sidharth’s character more than Katrina’s only because there was ample scope for him to do more. There is immense maturity in his performance and he’s come to know his craft better. Sidharth has an old school charm and is able to use that well to play Jai. Katrina looks like a million bucks and her scenes in the second half where we see them as a married couple with kids are good. The music is already a success and the songs especially ‘Khair Mangdi‘ and ‘Sau Aasman’ fit well into the storyline.

Debutant director Nitya Mehra’s Baar Baar Dekho is unlike any romantic yarn – I hesitate from giving it that loosely-used term the ‘rom-com’. It is the ultimate what-if saga, narrated with a tender care and subdued splendour that makes every moment between the lead pair precious and gladdening. Watching the film, we are just happy to see Jai and Diya together. It could be because they are played by two of the best-looking stars in our cinema. Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif look so made-for-each-other that it seems absurd to even suggest that they can be separated by destiny or design – or in this case by designed destiny.

Ratings: 2.5/5 Review by: Rohit Vats Site: Hindustan Times

What works for Baar Baar Dekho is its high emotional quotient. Malhotra has restricted himself from going overboard, and that works tremendously in favour of the film. He is relatable, likeable and confident. His chemistry with Kaif, however, doesn’t take off as the latter drastically fails to do the emotional bits. She looks ravishing in the songs, but that’s probably not enough.

Ratings: 2/5Review by Ananya Bhattacharya Ste: India Today

Mehra’s imagination makes Sidharth and Katrina travel from ages eight to their teenage, to mid-twenties, to mid-forties, and then late-fifties. The film essentially tries to drive home the message of carpe diem. The ‘concept’ could have taken off, but is let down by the execution of Baar Baar Dekho. That is, if you count out the half-hearted performances by the lead actors. Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif both seem to think they are in the film to make it look good. There’s hardly any acting on the part of either. While Katrina’s moments of frustration and sorrow invoke the stray laugh from the theatre, Sidharth’s neither-here-nor-there Jai hardly makes an impact.

Ratings: 3/5 Review by Mehul S Thakkar Site: Deccan Chronicle

Editor Amitabh Shukla has cropped the film beautifully and makes the different timelines appear seamless and in flow. There is also freshness in the dialogues and also has enough room for comic relief, and the credit for that goes to Anvita Dutt. No one captures a film like cinematographer Ravi Chandran and in this film too he has showcased many stunning shots. Ram Kapoor gets his comic timing right and seems to enjoy himself on screen. In a few portions, the film makes you yawn but it soon recovers as the director manages to get it back on track. Sidharth’s performance is endearing and the many workshops conducted by Atul Mongia have really helped the actor to pull off this complex performance. Katrina Kaif’s performance is different than what we have seen the actress deliver so far. She looks absolutely revived as she manages to pull out several emotions and one can see that her craft has only gotten better with every film.

A story about how looking at the bigger picture and not paying attention to the little moments in life can cause issues in relationships, would have been more relatable had it been weaved into a simple and sweet tale without exploring uncharted territories like time travel. The duration of the film is another issue as it seems to go on and on without an end in sight. In conclusion, ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ is worth watching just ‘Ek Baar’.

Siddharth Malhotra is left to flounder, and that is heartbreaking because he is capable of so much more. He can underplay beautifully, and add nuance to any part (he was the best part of Dharma Production’s previous Kapoor & Sons) but here he is strictly one note. What the film needed was to borrow some of the high voltage energy of the madly addictive Kala Chashma ditty, which has turned into the season’s club song du jour. Baar baar dekho? Wishful thinking. Once is way more than enough.

Ratings: 3.5/5 Review by: Renuka Vyavahare Site: The Times Of India

In true Dharma style, the film is visually and musically enchanting and is about loving your family. Good looking actors hum soulful songs on gorgeous locales. Both Sidharth and Katrina are easy on the eye and Sidharth pulls off his complex role with ease. Katrina, however fails to go beyond what’s expected of her as an actor. There are timeless love stories and then stories involving time travel. BBD belongs to the latter. Pleasant and fairly engaging but a tad tedious (like mathematics) to evoke a Baar Baar viewing. The foot-tapping kala chashma song in the end infuses that much required energy and zest into the film.
