  • Aa Dekhen Zara rating: 6 out of 10(Vinayak Chandra wrote on 04 Nov 2009)

    he story of 'Aa Dekhen Zara' revolves around the life of Ray Acharya (Neil Nitin Mukesh). He is a photographer by profession, who is still struggling to establish his name and his identity. He comes across a camera left by his grandpa, which brings in luck and money for him. But hardly does he know, soon his fancy life is gonna turn dangerous for him.

    Since the makers claim the script to be original, hats off to their imagination. But the movie doesnt grip you throughout. It lacks that power somewhere down the line.

    The first half never seemed to attract as much as the second half did, tho the second half has its share of errors. The way Neil gets to the camera could have been told in a simper form but the director chooses to show some intectuallity. Well thats 15 mins into the film, the rest actually deals with how Neil makes a fancy life out the camera futurisitic visuals. Somewhere i felt, it was quite inspired by the Jannat Jahaan (Jannat) song but no worries.

    The second half generates quite a fair amount of curiosity as this half totally deals with Neil's presumed last 6 days of his life. The chases and action sequences are well shot. Rahul Dev's entry is quite well placed and he actually does good in the little amount of role he has.

    Neil Nitin Mukesh never had any scope to do a lot in this movie, so he is somewhat average, considering the role.

    Bipasha was just Ok. She was no way upto the mark.

    The screenplay does get loose somewhere in the plot. You actually dont know how Rahul Dev knows where Neil & Bips are staying, but he ends up reaching everywhere they are.

    Neil & Bipasha break into the song 'Gazab' just out of nowhere, even when they are in a chase. This song actually halts the pace taken up by the movie.

    And few other scenes which the director did not feel the need to explain like the taxi driver's death etc.

    Sophie Choudhary had a very short role, but was quite glamourous.

    The direction could have been better, but well the script did lack the momentum.

    All in all, theres actually no lead hero/heroine in this film as Bipasha said, the camera actually plays the lead.

    Music is way below avg, with the title track being murdered, Power being a total no-no! Mohabbat Aapse the only good one, while the slow version of Aa Dekhen Zara played at the intro credits of the movie, sounds good.
