Movie review of 'Baar Baar Dekho'!
Each one of us wish to get one chance, a single chance to look into our future and set everthing right. See what life is planning for us and change our present. Well, this is the central theme of the debut director Nitya Mehra.
The idea is unusual and focuses on the concept of 'Present time is the king because it is in our hands.' It has been peculiarly attached to a love story giving the actor a chance to personally witness his future and giving him an idea that what could have happen.
Well, it doesn't seem that the movie will leave a bang on impression like its superhit song 'Kala Chashma', on which we all have been grooving for weeks.
The movie is a romantic drama, which traces a love story over a span of 30 years. The couple has grown up together and had committed at an early age. Siddharth aka Jai Verma is a brilliant mathematician, who can solve complicated calculations within seconds and Katrina aka Diya is an artist. But apart from being around perfection in their professions, Siddharth is passionate about his career and Katrina has her sole dream of becoming Mrs. Verma.
The main focus of the story is marriage, and its responsibilites, basically how a person is able to balance his dreams and goals with his marriage responsibilties. After realising that what changes marriage and Diya would bring to his life, he gets frustrated and thinks of running from it. He wishes to go for an option which he had been offered to choose Mathematics as his life.
Suddenly, after drinking too much, he wakes up to a strange morning where he finds himself on a honeymoon with Diya, where he just tries to search that what has happened to him and howcome he has ended up waking up here. Another bizzare twists enters, when he wakes up again and finds himself in a situation where his wife is pregnant and gives a birth to a son. Basically he wakes up to a numerous curious mornings which were highlighting various important parts of his life, concentrating on the crucial times of life reflecting 'what can happen and what changes can be done for the betterment.'
He has done justice to his role of a hard-core mathematics lover. He is a little unromantic in the movie and looks into his future from the perspective of a head mathematics professor in Harvard University. He had to play the role of 'confused' most of the time since he could not track what was going on with him. But at the end, after knowing all the problems that could arise in his life, he became an ideal man comrpising of an ideal husband, father, son and friend.
She looked undoubtedly steaming in the movie, may be, she in her saree, bikini or chikni chameli avatar in the song. She is a good artist but he sees her childhood love, Siddharth as her goal to be settled in life for. She has had variations in her character, depending upon the future aspects which Siddharth goes into.
The cast was supportive only, none of the actors other than Siddhartha and Katrina had a significant role to play. It seemed that they were only added to the movie because it was required and their presence was not so profound.
1) Their chemistry inspite of working together for the first time.
2) The songs (Ofcourse).
3) The technology and advancement of the future time will be loved by all.
4) The kiss..... as you can see.
1) Few scenes were exaggerated.
2) Comedy was a little silly.
The concept could have focused on other things than love, because there are many angles that could have been taken into consideration referring to 'important decisions'.
