Baar Baar Dekho’s USP lies in its melodious songs and groovy numbers and that is what kept the audience entertained for a major part of the movie. At a multiplex that indianexpress.com visited in Citi Mall Andheri, the Katrina kaif and Sidharth Malhotra film opened to 30-40 percent occupancy on Day One.
For the majority, it is the melodious songs and dance numbers that kept them engaged throughout. Said a viewer, “After long, one got to see a through song and dance affair and that kept us engaged. It looked like Karan Johar or Yash Chopra kind of an elaborate film. And Katrina Kaif dances like a dream in certain. She needs to do a full-fledged dance movie.”
The storyline, however, elicited a mixed response from viewers. Reasoned a viewer, “The story keeps oscillating between the past, present and future. It seemed to be a good concept at first but too much of switching in and out makes one lose interest.”
Katrina’s sizzling good looks came in for praise from viewers especially young female folks. They appreciated her gym-toned physique that is displayed quite abundantly throughout the film. And her chemistry with Sidharth received decent appreciation.
On the performance front, Sidharth earned some brownie points while pretty Kat made an impression doing what she does best — looking good and dancing.

On the flip side, the film has almost 2.5-hour long run time which the majority felt made the film drag a bit too long.
With multiplexes reserving maximum screen numbers to beam Baar Baar Dekho and the subject tailor-made to suit the multiplex viewing masses, Baar Baar Dekho is expected to break even at the box-office.
