Baar Baar Dekho - Preview

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

A long-winded way of saying something quite simple, really. The buildup and guesswork all seem like they want to lead you up to something very profound, but nada.

Time travel. 50 first dates/Groundhog Day. “Living yourself fully” because you know when you are going to die. Each of these themes by themselves are good enough to combine with a romcom. But, all of them merging into one seems like a hotch-potch that will spoil a potentially decent romcom.

At least these images of the couple are equal measure of romance and steam to make you want to believe it will be a good romantic film. But then you have Katrina Kaif mouth a line in Hindi that is a word-on-word translation of an English phrase and you know not to pin too many hopes. The little that was left after the time travel, reliving the day and so on.

Sure, Siddharth Malhotra tries to bring in some reassured presence to the chaos. But, it is very unlikely that it will be enough to hold fort. And yet I feel like holding on and hoping that there might be enough to keep Baar Baar Dekho in the decent range. Might be just the romantic in me.
