Review: 'Aa Dekhen Zara'

An interesting thought may not necessarily translate into an interesting screenplay. 'Aa Dekhen Zara' is a prime example of this statement.

Review: 'Aa Dekhen Zara'


Think about it... A man inherits his grandfather's camera and with the camera comes the ability to see the future. What an idea, Sirji... But 'Aa Dekhen Zara' is akin to a bottle of soda, which starts off with a lot of energy, but the fizz settles down faster than expected.

'Aa Dekhen Zara' had great potential to be a riveting thriller, but halfway through the film, you realize that the writers have run out of ideas. In fact, by the time the film reaches the finale, the viewer is terribly confused [like the writers of this film]. This is one jigsaw puzzle that remains unsolved even after its culmination.

In a nutshell, 'Aa Dekhen Zara' promises the moon, but what you eventually get in return is merely a mirage.

Ray [Neil Nitin Mukesh], a struggling photographer, has nothing going for him... until he inherits a very special camera from his grandfather which changes his life in a way that he could not have imagined in his wildest dreams.

The power of the camera changes Ray's destiny overnight. His life becomes one big roller coaster ride that takes him from rags to riches and also helps him meet the love of his life, Simi [Bipasha Basu], who is a DJ with a mind of her own. Everything is hunky dory.

As they say with great power comes great responsibility and in Ray's case, also great danger. He must now face up to the dark side of reality and win not only against the evil forces, but also against fate.

Come to think of it, your imagination can run wild with a premise like the one in 'Aa Dekhen Zara'. But the film runs out of fuel midway.
