5 Time Travel Indian Movies to add to your list!

It goes without saying that Indian cinema has miles to go before it can establish territory in the time-travel genre. However, there are some really interesting movies that used the concept of time travel or a time loop to make their storytelling a little more exciting. These movies may not be entirely sci-fi and may not even do justice to the scientific theories revolving around time travel, but they definitely offer a fun watch if you find this genre interesting. Here’s a look at some time travel-based Indian movies that may be worth your time.

1.Baar Baar Dekho (Hindi)

Watch on Amazon Prime Video

Though the film is about the male lead getting stuck in a time loop, Baar Baar Dekho is not a science fiction Bollywood film. It is a simple rom-com starring Katrina Kaif and Siddharth Malhotra that uses the element of the time loop in the storytelling to help the character understand the consequences of his decision on his relationships. Jai (played by Sidharth Malhotra) is an ambitious mathematician while his girlfriend/fiancé Diya Kapoor is a chill artist. The wedding festivities freak Jai out and he wakes up to realize that he has woken up several years later and is expecting a baby with Diya. The time loop continues and he finds himself several years ahead every time he wakes up until he gets the chance to go back in time to correct his mistakes. Though the film didn’t turn out to be a box-office success, it is definitely a feel-good movie that helps us gain some perspective.
