Here comes a thriller movie which opens up with lots of potential, arising from a new idea, but on the whole failing to live up to the expectations. OK, without wasting any time, let’s get down to the story.

The film protagonist is Ray [Neil Nitin Mukesh], a struggling photographer, not doing well in life, until he comes across a very special camera inherited from his grandfather. And his life gets completely changed, courtesy the magical camera which has the ability to see the future. Along his success story of rags to riches, he meets his love life in the form of Simi [Bipasha Basu], a DJ.
And akin to typical Bollywood film, our Hero has to face and fight against the evil forces and his destiny.

The film’s first half carries a lot of promise and starts off with a fizz, but gradually the script and story let’s you down and finally ends up leaving the audience confused.

As regards to performances, Neil Nitin Mukesh, grandson of legendry singer Mukesh, he lives upto the expectations as displayed in his debut movie Johnny Gaddar. Bipasha Basu, as usual sails thru’ her role. Surprisingly Rahul Dev impresses in the negative character.

Director Jehangir Surti impresses with his style of presentation, visuals, but alas the script lets him down. Especially if you are dealing in a suspense thriller, one has to be very careful as to how to unravel the mystery systematically and keeping the curiosity factor intact. Here in the case of AA DEKHEN ZARA, on the contrary, the climax is confusing and chaotic.

The plus points of the film is VISUALS, PEPPY & ENERGETIC MUSIC, SLICK CINEMATOGRAPHY and some thrilling ACTION Sequences. The title song AA DEKHEN ZARA is sung by Neil Nitin Mukesh himself. Overall, the film will attract the young audience and it’s peppy music coupled up with long weekend will open up well, but gradually will fail to sustain later on.

I will give 2 out of 5.
