Cast and Performance
Siddharth Malhotra as Jai is a delight. His performance as a confused one and someone who is seeking something which changes the course of his life is impressive. The basic emotion of the story lies in his character and he pulls it off with ease and lot of charm. If he fail to perform Jai, this movie would not have worked out. Katrina Kaif as Diya Kapoor is superb. She tried to give very pleasing expressions despite of her slang. Ram Kapoor is nice. Rajit Kapoor is good. All other cast performed to the extent of their role.
Story of Baar Baar Dekho is novel and interesting. Screenplay is nice and gets us hooked despite of minute flaws. Dialogues written by Anvita Dutt are terrific and are situational.
Songs are composed by various composers and they are already chartbusters. Background score is fantastic and makes audience connect even more to the emotion. Cinematography by Ravi K Chandran is perfect and is more appealing. Editing by Amitabh Shukla is good but his crisp in it misses in the second half.

- Second half lets down a little
Childhood of Jai Varma and Diya Kapoor runs with the titles and is presented so beautifully and makes audience have sign of smile on their face. First half goes giving intriguing moments to audience and ends so interestingly and convincingly. Second half has it moments but seems to be lost somewhere and gets back on track towards the climax. Director Nitya Mehra made this an entertaining ride with the screenplay she opted and is to be appreciated. This movie tells that past cannot be changed, future cannot be guessed so be in present. This is what makes us watch Baar Baar Dekho. To sum up, this movie is an emotional ride which has its moments to tease and tickle us.
