Baar Baar Dekho, a romantic drama, is directed by debutant director Nitya Mehra, who has previously acted as an associate director in movies like Life of Pi and the reluctant fundamentalist. The box office collection of Baar Baar Dekho has been average. The movie has been co-produced by Karan Johar and Excel entertainment. The movie features student of the year fame Siddharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif who was last seen in Phantom with Saif Ali Khan. It was previously rumored that Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone will play the main leads.
The movie got decent opening on the first day with 40% occupancy in north India and 25% occupancy in another part of the country in the morning. The occupancy increases up to 60-70% by evening. We expected that this movie would do good over the weekend and will collect good sum at the box office. It was released over 2000 screens in the country and on 700 screens in abroad. The budget of the movie was Rs. 50 crores. The experts had predicted that the movie could collect approx 30 crores in the first week as it doesn’t have any big competitor.
The movie has received a mixed response from the audience. Though the Siddharth-Katrina pair is fresh and quite adorable to watch. Both are looking good together.

One thing that is working in the favor of the movie is the catchy and trendy music of the movie which has been directed by Amaal Mallik, rapper Baadshah, Punjabi sensation Bilal Saeed and many other young music directors. The song Kala Chasma is also loved by the audience a lot. The songs of the movie were already chartbusters even before the release of the movie.
Baar Baar Dekho has come as a semi-relief for actor Katrina Kaif as Phantom didn’t go as expected. And Siddharth Malhotra is able to make the success of Kapoor and Sons count in this movie. So far everything has worked well if not very good for the movie Baar Baar Dekho at the box office be it the storyline, good music or the star power of Katrina.
This movie is competition with Freaky Ali, a film directed by Sohail Khan. The main lead in the movie is Nawazuddin Siddiqui. This movie is also getting mix response from the audience but even in Freaky Ali, Nawazuddin is getting the appreciation for his acting. It seems this movie is not big competition for Baar Baar Dekho.
