1.Baar Baar Dekho (Hindi)

Watch on Amazon Prime Video

Though the movie 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 carefree 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 a heartwarming movie that helps us gain some perspective through the idea of time travel.

Action Replayy

Watch on Amazon Prime Video

Bringing back Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai, Action Replayy is a fun Bollywood time travel movie where Bunty (Aditya Roy Kapoor) goes back in time with the help of a time machine to fix his parents’ troubled marriage. He goes back to 1975, the year before his parents got married, and tries to make them fall in love with each other. He sees that his father Kishen (Akshay Kumar) is an unattractive and shy young man while his mother Mala (Aishwarya Rai) is a spirited young woman who also gangs up on Kishen and makes fun of him. Their son plays the cupid and makes them realize their love for each other. The events that unfold are hilarious. Action Replayy doesn’t have any logic but it is sure to give you a good laugh. I guess it would be fair to call the movie a fun Bollywood time travel movie.

6. Indru Netru Naalai (Tamil)

“Indru Netru Naalai” is a Tamil science fiction-comedy film that offers a delightful and imaginative take on time travel. Directed by R. Ravikumar, the movie tells the story of Elango (played by Vishnu Vishal) and his friend Pulivetti Arumugam (played by Karunakaran), who accidentally stumble upon a time machine created by a scientist.
