'Tenu kala chashma jachda ae, Jachda ae gore mukhde te…' the Nation has been singing this song again and again and raving about it totally. Baar Baar Dekho has created a sensation before the release itself. Debutant director Nithya Mehra’s scifi romantic entertainer starring Siddarth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif has hit the theatres today. Karan Johar has produced the film under the prestigious banner Dharma Productions.
Jai Verma (Siddarth Malhotra) and Diya Kapoor are childhood lovers who are inseparable. They grew up together and is their fondness for each other. Diya is a painter and Jai is a math professor. One fine day Dia pops the big question and Jai doesn’t take it too well. He is not prepared for marriage and doesn’t understand how to convey it to his love.
Jai takes up courage and pours his heart out and confesses he is not ready for marriage. A heartbroken Diya leaves from there. Jai drinks and drinks in depression and next day he wakes up to see himself in a future tense. Jai losing his dream job at Harvard University and divorcing his wife Diya. The rest of the story forms in how Jai copes up with this phase and seeks a solution to it.
Debutant director Nithya Mehra fails to deliver an engaging sci-fi love story. The time lapses, shifts to future and present are utterly confusing. Siddarth Malhotra plays his role amicably but Katrina doesn’t live up to the role fully.
And also the much awaited facet of the film – ‘ Kaala Chashma’ song is played only at the song credits, leaving the audience even more disappointed. Sadly the film doesn’t offer anything engaging to Baar Baar Dekho it.
