If given a chance to look into the future, would you change anything? Will you take life’s most important decisions — to love and marry, to focus on work or life — differently?

That is the central premise of Nitya Mehra-directed Baar Baar Dekho, starring Katrina Kaif and her ‘midriff, and Sidharth Malhotra. The first-time director has chosen a subject which is unusual for her first film. Essentially a romance, Baar Baar Dekho is also a reflection of love in our time.

Katrina plays an artist whose sole ambition is to become Mrs Jai Verma. Mr Verma, played by Sidharth, is a brilliant mathematician who wants to soar his wings. Love is important for him but not as much as his career. Or is it? He simply cannot decide right till the moment marriage bells are about to ring.

And that is the moment when time travel — of sorts — enter the picture. Sidharth Malhotra is given the ability to see some crucial moments of his future. Will a peek into tomorrow change his today?

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.
