‘Baar Baar Dekho’ motion poster: Katrina-Sidharth starrer is time themed

Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra starrer ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ has released its motion poster and it is intriguing. The motion poster deals with the element of time and shows the past and present lives of the protagonists Diya and Jai.

The 50-second-long video is an assortment of some still pictures of the characters from their life span in the movie. It asks what if one could see the “highlights” of life and “fix” it by rewinding, fast-forwarding and pausing “when time takes over life.”  It says, "Without balance, there is no equation." The motion poster plays to an upbeat and catchy background score.

The video shows Katrina in a bespectacled and nerdy look, while Sidharth is brooding and bearded. There is also a pocket watch which appears midway in the video clip to draw attention to the time element in the movie.

‘Baar Baar Dekho’ is said to be a love story of a couple spanning 30 odd years. Katrina and Sidharth will be playing a couple ageing from 30 years to 60 years in the film.

There were reports that suggested that the film was an adaptation of 2013 British film ‘About Time’ by Richard Curtis. However, the makers have repeatedly denied this and maintained that it was pitched as an original story to them by New York-based writer Sri Rao.

‘Baar Baar Dekho’ has been directed by debutante Nitya Mehra, who has previously assisted Ang Lee on ‘Life of Pi’ and Mira Nair on ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’. It has been co-produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidwani’s Excel Entertainment and Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.

The film went on floors in September last year and major portion of the film was shot in Glasgow, Scotland. It was also shot across Delhi, Mumbai and Krabi in Thailand.

The romantic drama is scheduled to hit screens on September 9.
