Mumbai, Aug 4 (IANS) Director Nitya Mehra, who makes her debut with film “Baar Baar Dekho”, says that her film is complex, but at the same time, a very simple and beautiful story about love and life.
“Baar Baar Dekho” sees Sidharth Malhotra’s character Jai falling in love with Katrina Kaif’s character Diya, but developing cold feet on the wedding day.
The story then takes a turn when Jai suddenly starts ageing – 10 days on first day, two years on second day and 16 years on third day – and worries if he will die on the fourth day and then has to clear the mystery surrounding the strange process of ageing.
Asked about the complex turn of events in the film, at the unveiling of the trailer, Nitya said: “It is complex but that is what was so exciting about it. I wouldn’t take out something that’s so simple, otherwise that’d be boring. But also, we have just packaged it in an interesting way, but actually it is a very simple story.
“It is a beautiful story about love and life, it is very simple and sweet, very understandable, it’s not like it is some sci-fi, time travel film at all. It is really about the small moments in life and if you don’t pay attention, your life will pass you by and not much will be left.”
“Baar Baar Dekho” has been produced by Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani.
