The Aa Dekhen Zara Movie Review

Zara thrilling, Zara timepass
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi
Rating: 2.5/5

A slick thriller that starts off well but slackens in the second hour, Aa Dekhen Zara is worth a dekko for the freshness of its theme.

Step aside, Mr. India! We've seen (pun intended) your invisible-man antics far too much. It's time to flip out a new gizmo - a camera that can look into the future!

Now, what would you not do with such a gadget? The out-of-work, freelance wild-life photographer hero of the film, Ray ( Neil Nitin Mukesh ), inherits such a magical, antique-looking camera from his granddad and puts it to good use. Through photographs taken by the cam, Ray takes a peek into the future and bets on horses, lotteries and stock market. Soon his cupboard is stashed with wads of cash. Penury days well behind him, Ray buys a new house, a swanky car, and everything else that easy-earned money can buy. But there's trouble. Money can't buy love.

Ray's DJ girlfriend Simi ( Bipasha Basu ) feels neglected by her beau who's mostly stuck to his cellphone, milking more prospects of making money. Even as Ray tries to win Simi's love, there are other people who come to know about the camera and want it at any cost. And then, to Ray's horror, the camera predicts his doom.

Director Jehangir Surti has a very interesting concept at the core of 'Aa Dekhen Zara' and to be fair to him, he does manage to keep you on the edge of your seat during the first half. But the film keeps careening off the course in the second hour when Ray and Simi are on the run, trying to save the camera, apart from their own skin and hide, from a deadly sharpshooter ( Rahul Dev ) who guns down people with such ease, as if he was flushing toilet.

What could have been a tight thriller ends up a hodgepodge as the plot goes completely haywire with characters like a provocatively underdressed RAW agent ( Sophie Choudhary ) and her corrupt senior who goes on shooting spree in Bangkok and bumps off a couple of cops on his trail to Ray and the camera. The run-up to the climax, full of chases and shootouts, doesn't really kick the adrenaline, but is engrossing enough.

Further consolation is to be drawn from the performances - Neil Nitin Mukesh is raw and intense, but most importantly he manages to internalize his character without hamming. Bipasha Basu is rusty at times, Rahul Dev convincingly menacing.

The film's cinematography is pretty tight, but the music is plain average. The action and stunts hardly raise a hair.

Watch it for some timepass fun.

Music Review : Skip it! (1.5/5)
If you are expecting music of 'Aa Dekhen Zara' to be in the same league as the superhit track Aa dekhen zara of '80s then you will meet sheer disappointment. The music of the movie is less than average and two tracks by Pritam don't do any good to the movie's soundtrack. The album fe...
