AA DEKHEN ZARA - Exciting plot but an unexciting and lifeless execution. (Movie Review By Bobby Sing)
28 Apr, 2009 | Movie Reviews / 2009 Releases

It is easy to select an exciting and interesting plot about future gazing but it’s quite difficult to convert it into an equally entertaining movie. What may be amusing and great on paper may not be that convincing when it comes out as a complete film. That is the exact problem with “Aa Dekhen Zara” featuring Neil Nitin Mukesh and Bipasha together for the first time.

The movie starts off impressively but then goes on a downslide with each new development on the screen. The story revolves around Neil and his Camera, which has the power of looking into the future. The camera can click photographs of the events which would be happening on the following day. The moment Neil comes to know about this gift, he goes on to fulfill all his wishes in life along with his lady love Bipasha.
 
Now reading the synopsis, you may feel excited to watch it, but the movie lacks the pull and passion required by the plot. A film based on future prediction should normally be a fast paced, exciting ride for the viewer. But the current flick fails to deliver the goods as promised. The main culprit behind this is the script, which is not able to hold the viewer at all. The sequences written are uninteresting and also conceived in a very simple way. There are too many loopholes in the story which are easy to spot even while watching the movie itself.
 
Director Jehangir Surti, has sure got the talent, but maybe he chose the wrong script. Same can be said about Neil Nitin Mukesh, who chooses his movies with utmost care. But this time, it seems he got over confident about the innovative plot and didn’t care about its execution on the screen. Though performance wise he does a fine job but in my opinion, going by his looks, he should avoid dancing and love themes in his movies. Neil has got a perfect persona for thrillers and intense flicks, so he should look out for those kind of scripts more, leaving the usual bollywood stuff for others (like the act he did in his debut movie “Johny Gaddar”).
 
Bipasha looks glamorous and she delivers what was required from her according to the script. Sophie Chaudhary on the other hand too looks sexy but it was indeed strange on part of the director to cast her as an Intelligence Agent. Others in the cast have strictly played their part as an official job assigned to them with nothing great to mention.
 
Musically, also the movie lacks a lot. Good thrillers either should not have any songs at all or should have highly entertaining songs which do not become an hindrance in the narration. Sadly here the songs are a big obstacle in the proceedings and are not able to entertain, not even the remix version of the hit R.D. Burman track from “Rocky”. However among the few good things about the movie, is the camerawork in the chase sequences and fights, which is done superbly.
 
In short, the idea was good, which could have resulted in an exciting movie but the poor execution took away all the thrills from the otherwise interesting plot. Bollywood still has a lot to achieve in genre of Sci-fi fictions. The best movie till date on this topic still remains “Mr. India” but let’s hope for better works in the coming years. If you are really interested in movies on journey into the future then do watch “Back To The Future” Series and enjoy the ride.
 
Rating : 1 / 5
