    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.

    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.

    ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ is all about enjoying your present moments and not calculating or thinking too much into ‘what will happen in the future’.

    The film makes you yawn in few portions but it soon recovers as the director manages to get it back on track.

    Although not a typical Karan Johar type film, Baar Baar Dekho deserves to be seen for its music, glamour and unusual theme. Jumbled up screenplay and dragging second half might put off the audience.

    This is no baar baar dekho, which means to watch again and again. Reserve this for a one-time watch.

    If you have to settle for a half-baked story for the sake of all this,  I say it ain’t a bad bet.

    Baar Baar Dekho is hardly even a bird’s eye view of the new generation’s choices and desires. Its philosophy lacks strength and gloss takes the centre stage right from the beginning.But, if you stop taking it seriously then it may provide you some happy moments in exchange. After all, who doesn’t like a big, fat Punjabi wedding!

    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.

    This could’ve been a breezy love story but it takes itself too seriously and ends up like a masala khichdi with aspirations of being a risotto.

    It wouldn’t come as a surprise if you would want the makers to go back in time and ‘fix’ the errors in making the film. Flawed it may be, but movie buffs can surely go for an ek baar dekho splurge, if not a baar baar dekho spree.

    It’s an undercooked time travel tale. Ek baar dekhna is tough enough.

    In all, watch Baar Baar Dekho if you swear by the newer, fitter, leaner, hotter Katrina Kaif and her abs. There’s nothing much to watch otherwise.

    …is a confused film which underestimates audience’s intelligence and takes them for granted. At the box office, the film’s narrative will appeal only to the selected multiplex audience while the masses will find it difficult to relate to the movie.

    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.

    In the end, if you are planning to take some ‘time’ out with your valentine for BAAR BAAR DEKHO, make sure he/she is the biggest fan of Sidharth or Katrina and you just want to give your ‘time’ to her. Otherwise wait for the TV premiere or DVD.

    Baar Baar Dekho is an unique concept that fails to keep you interested because of its weak execution. This is a time travel journey you might want to fast forward!

    The unwieldy narration makes Baar Baar Dekho a tiring watch. The romance doesn’t coo enough. The comedy is almost non-existent. The time travel bit makes it look like it is an attakh on nerds rather than the concept of passion for work. Let alone the question of why we are attacking the passion in the first place.

    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.

    Katrina Kaif, Sidharth Malhotra film has all the gloss but no beating heart. Baar baar dekho for this romance? Ha, just wishful thinking.

    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.

    Raja Sen | Rediff

    Nothing in this movie adds up…It is all rather excruciating, despite the glossy settings and the casually futuristic detailing, largely because Mehra labours her point endlessly and her tubelight hero never seems to learn a thing.

    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. In the present though, in the here and now, this is a film that starts off well but fails to sustain itself.

    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.

    While the script may be uninspired, this is not to say that Baar Baar Dekho has nothing to celebrate. The film is equipped with futuristic qualities (without being bizarre), picturesque locations and great music. Plus, it manages to convey what it set out to put across, that one should focus on the smaller details in life.

    “Baar Baar Dekho” doesn’t want to ask the tough questions about family, equality, marriage, and whether they trump your other passions as the ultimate aim in life. Once you accept the film’s contention that life is all about your relationships, it passes the Bollywood romance test with flying colours.

    With a tighter screenplay, sharper dialogue and more accomplished leads, Baar Baar Dekho could have been that hybrid between Hollywood and Bollywood genres, but it is neither here nor there, neither of the present nor of the future. Mehra has a fashion catalogue writer’s eye for beauty, but this movie needed a Mills & Boon writer’s heart to make its fantastical premise work.
