So, What’s New ? Baar Baar Dekho review: Katrina Kaif, Sidharth Malhotra’s film fails to sustain itself
Here’s the Review For You–
The concept of an individual getting a glimpse of their future and coming back in time to correct the present has been repeatedly visited by Hollywood. It has not, however, been explored in contemporary Hindi commercial films so when Delhi boy Jai Varma (Sidharth Malhotra) wakes up one day after a fight with his fiancée Diya Kapoor (Katrina Kaif) to find himself fast forwarded in time and place to their honeymoon in Thailand, it is natural to expect an unconventional film.
And in the first half, that is
“With the benefit of hindsight” is how we often preface discussions about lessons learnt from our past. Imagine though having this “benefit of hindsight” in your today, in the moment, in your here and now? what director Nitya Mehra’s Baar Baar Dekho is.
Yet ultimately, a man who could not bring himself to accept financial support from his wife’s father at the start ‘evolves’ into a man who still feels the need to underline his role as the provider who will set up a studio for his artist wife without pa-in-law’s monetary help. And in the end, the film becomes less about throwing ourselves completely into our present (good point, point taken) and more about underlining the essentiality of marriage as the natural goal of any romantic relationship. So what’s new?
