India’s leading stars Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif are coming together for the first time as Bollywood’s popular mantle of a romantic couple in the eagerly anticipated film Baar Baar Dekho, releasing internationally on 9th September 2016.
A story exposing the intricate nuances of a relationship, meaning of life, marriage and love, Baar Baar Deko sees the collaboration between two of India’s most innovative film companies, Excel Entertainment co-founded by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar. They both come together along with Dharma Productions under the aegis of Karan Johar. This has further amped up anticipation for the actual movie, as it also reinforces the strength of this debut venture by the ‘Dream Team’.
Adding dynamism to the film is Sidharth Malhotra, who rose to prominence as Indian cinema’s favourite youth icon in films like Student of Year and Kapoor and Sons Since 1921 who will essay the role of ‘Jai’. Dispensing panache to the story is Bollywood’s darling Katrina Kaif known for her performances in Raajneeti (2010) to Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011). The first track from the film ‘Kala Chashma’ featuring Bollywood’s freshest pair Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif, has already swept audiences worldwide, taking the meaning of ‘swag’ to new heights.
The trailer has the two actors sharing great on-screen chemistry while the picturesque locations of the film makes for one hell of a cinematic canvas.
Adding her creative genius to the film is debutant director Nitya Mehra known for her work in ‘life of pie’ and ‘the reluctant fundamentalist’. The film also stars acclaimed actor Sarika Thakur known for her National award winning performances in Parzania (2002) and actor Ram Kapoor best known for his performance in the very famous TV show Bade Aache Lagte Hai and ‘Student of the Year’.
The cherry on the cake of course is the audio jukebox of the film, which has the winner Kala Chashma as a part of its album. The Music of Baar Baar Dekho is a classic example of new age Bollywood music that has refreshingly metamorphosed from traditional music and delivers a super hit album. The energetic ‘Nachde Ne Saare’ is perhaps the song that feels in sync with the spirit of the film, accentuated by the enjoyable wedding song video. No words can describe ‘Kala Chashma’ which ruled the charts and will make you groove to its beats. The song is recreated by Badshah and lyrics are penned by Amrik Singh and Kumaar. Neha Kakkar’s vocals, Amar Arshi’s voice and Badshah rapping with Indeep Bakshi give the song an ultimate Punjabi hip-hop flavour. The Music of this film has surely become one of those albums which we put on repeat mode in our playlists.
With all the usual hit film elements ticked, Sidharth Malhotra’s and Katnira Kaif’s refreshingly eclectic pairing is an added bonus and is expected to steal the show yet again with this film. Baar Baar Dekho personifies a new age relationship, the sort of contemporary romantic relationship never seen before on Indian celluloid.
Baar Baar Dekho is presented by Eros International in association with Excel Entertainment and Dharma Productions and releases on 9th September 2016. The full jukebox for the film has been uploaded to YouTube and you can listen to it below:
