Baar Baar Dekho - Movie Reviews

A grouchy young man seems to be living a sort of groundhog day when everyone around him is happy celebrating his wedding to his childhood sweetheart. We know he has to re-live the day that changed his fate but we don't know why. And despite Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra's 'hotness' which drew the audiences in, the story leaves you cold.

Baar Baar Dekho has the right ideas. It even gets the tricky part right - the futuristic design of the story telling. But it doesn't show any innovation in its writing. This is an age old love story where being in love is more important than everything in life. You can't sell a 100-year-old idea with futuristic frills. That just doesn't add up.
Filmfare
There are timeless love stories and then stories involving time travel, BBD belongs to the latter
The Times of India
It is the ultimate what-if saga, narrated with a tender care and subdued splendour
I’m going with one-and-a-half out of five. Baar Baar Dekho? No thanks, ek baar kaafi tha!
Rajeev Masand
Does this seem merely an exercise in makeup artistry then? In that sense, the old Sidharth looks a lot like the current Shah Rukh Khan, if you ask me. And Katrina is the mannequin all the way. Be that as it may, I suspect both of them, few years down the line, looking back at this movie, might feel rather embarrassed nonetheless. Uh-oh.

Nothing in Baar Baar Dekho adds up
REDIFF
Once is way more than enough
Indian Express
This storytelling device is a cat'€™s cradle of confusion
Spotboye
The actors have given their heart and soul to the main parts. And some of the supporting cast - not all, I am afraid - is also exceptional.
If you could go back in time to set this film right, make something else instead
Sen City
And yes the looks and poses of Katrina in two piece happen to be the most interesting thing to catch giving her fans enough opportunities to enjoy her hot presence in the movie.
Just Bollywood
However, as the couple ages, the chinks in the armour start showing. Some of the twists are hard to digest, just like over-the-top acting.
Indian Express
One cannot help but feel slightly letdown by the audio of Dharma and Excel's Baar Baar Dekho as none of the songs are original
Glam Sham
Debutant director Nitya Mehra's Baar Baar Dekho is unlike any romantic yarn. It is the ultimate what-if saga, narrated with a tender care and subdued splendour
Sify
Baar Baar Dekho has some fairly entertaining music with the young lady Jasleen Kaur Royal taking the top honours
Music Aloud
It's a morality fable bolstered by bouts of effervescence, nostalgia regret and pain
Santa Banta
Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra’s romance is watchable
BAAR BAAR DEKHO is a confused film which underestimates audience...

But he finally relents.
KomalsReviews
Jai Verma (Malhotra) and Diya Kapoor (Kaif) are childhood friends turned sweethearts. They do the expected thing and get hitched, more on her insistence than on his
Planet Bollywood
The title of the movie is a tad unfortunate because you are forced to say, 'Baar baar nahi, ek baar bhi mat dekho!' (Not again and again, just don't watch the film eve once!)
Now Running
A film like Baar Baar Dekho can go back and forth in time and confuse anyone
Masala!
The songs are quite vibrant, and the peppy number are already top on the chartbusters
Business of Cinema
Baar Baar Dekho is an '€˜Ek Baar Dekho'€™ affair
Koimoi
Story which seems to be based on the common day to day adage we use in life 'dekhtein hi dekhtein pal kaise beet gaya' (how time flies) and 'lagta hai jaise ki kal ki baat hai' (it seems just a day ago), the philosophy is interesting and the writers had tried to twine it with the time travel cinematic format but the sequences are routine, boring and uninteresting
Glam Sham
Watch Baar Baar Dekho for the new sizzling jodi, great locations and dance-worthy numbers
BookMyShow
Baar Baar Dekho is a one time watch unlike its title
Andhra & Telangana Wishesh
Baar Baar Dekho starts off slowly and quietly, begins to spread its charm and then comes on its own towards the later portions
Bollywood Hungama
The album definitely has the potential to make you baar baar suno
Bollywood Life
बार बार..' नहीं एक बार देखी जा सकती है कैटरीना की फिल्म
Bhaskar
Overall, ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ may be an ‘ek baar dekho’ affair, but the pairing of Sidharth and Katrina should be ‘baar baar dekho’.
BollywoodMantra
This is a typical Bollywood love story
Hindustan Times
It'€™s a breezy, easy movie to watch, with not too much drama or heartbreak

The movie has a very unique and cool story line , giving it contemporary films a very tough competition!
The Indian Talks
They are humm-able songs that won't be forgotten tomorrow
First Post
Baar Baar Dekho's OST is catchy and fun and it clearly stands out as a winner
Filmfare
As if its title being laden with irony wasn't enough, the experience of sitting through yet another Dharma Productions wannabe cool and trendy yawn-fest is akin to reliving your nightmare again and again with little hope of respite
Bolly Brit
If I had the power to go back in time and any power over Team Baar Baar Dekho, I would cajole or bully them into rewriting the second half of their script
First Post
'Baar Baar Dekho' traces a unique and unusual love story
International Business Times
You wake up and realise that it’s going be the last day of your life. You look back at it and regret the moments you missed in search of a dream.
Bollywood.Com
Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra’s crackling chemistry makes the film worth a watch
Bollywood Life
“Baar Baar Dekho” is about getting a chance of changing the mistakes in life without making them. But really, I can’t think of one thing I’d like to see changed in this film. Except maybe Sarika’s prosthetics when she plays dead. Someone overdid the mother’s wrinkles.
