The much awaited Baar Baar Dekho released last week and I HAD to watch it. Not because I’m a Sidharth or Katrina fan, but because I was intrigued by the fact that Bollywood was trying something different - a time travel romance. And so I went to watch the film. Well, I shouldn’t have. Maybe I watched it to help you all NOT make the same mistake that I made. Anyway, here I am, sharing some thoughts that I had while watching this film - you know, since I had plenty of time sitting inside the hall, because the movie left my brain completely unengaged and free to wander...
1. Baar Baar MAT Dekho
Yes, that was the first thought that popped my head. You know why? Cuz’ they gave away half of the story during the opening credits of the film.
2. What’s with Katrina’s accent again?
Yes, without doubt Katrina is more expressive in this film compared to her other movies. But wassup with the accent, bro?
3. Sidharth’s forever baffled look is basically summing up my feelings.
He goes back and forth and back and forth and back and forth in time. I was just as confused as him.
4. Are they married? Are they NOT married? Are they divorced? Or not, maybe?
These are some questions you’ll be asking yourself throughout the film.
5. Time travel? More like...TIME WASTE.
The movie was a time waste. Not just mine, but for the actors, directors, producers and nearly everyone who was a part of this film.
6. OMG, how long is this going to go on?!
I was disappointed with the first half of the film, but I still gave it a chance, waiting for something to happen. But 1 hour and 50 minutes into the film is when the conflict finally came to a head…too long, bro, TOO LONG.
7. Stop with the life lessons pleeeeease!
The movie was basically a moral science class wrapped into two good-looking actors, exotic locations and a story without a beginning, middle or end.
8. I think I should go home...
The only constant thought I had during the movie was THIS.
9. Where is “Kala Chashma”? Where is “KALA CHASHMA”?
Yes, the whole movie kinda sucked and the only reason I was still sitting in that cinema hall for the two most boring hours of my life was “Kala Chashma”.
10. Let’s have some popcorn and contemplate life.
Yeah. Let’s. While the movie plays in the background. Actually, no - let’s just chuck the movie and do something more interesting instead.GIFs: Tumblr, Giphy
