Aa Dekhen Zara - Movies Reviews

What's it about: A magical camera that shows you the future, changes the life of photographer Ray (Neil Nitin Mukesh). Unemployed and debt ridden, Ray uses the camera to foresee future wins in lottery tickets, derby and gambles enough money to get him a girlfriend (Bipasha Basu) and bling to last a lifetime.

Now only if life wasn't a bittersweet experience, Ray's story would have ended here. But Jehangir Surti weaves double-crossing, revenge, betrayal and every other ingredient we've tasted so far to serve us a picture that's visually appealing but flat on the senses.u00a0

What's hot: Surti shows streaks of influence from the kings of thrillers, Abbas Mustan. The action scenes and the car chases set in Bangkok are impressive. Background score has flavours of house and trance to it, giving the track a fast pace.

What's not: When you have an action adventure that's supposed to capture you from the word go, there needs to be a tight script. The film's biggest drawback is its flat screenplay, lacklustre characters and a tedious second half that drags towards an unbelievably hackneyed climax.

Neil made an impressive debut with Johnny Gaddar, but his follow-up is anything but disappointing. His character has no edge and the effort to evoke pathos in any form fails.

Even though there's sincerity in his attempt the lack of a good script leaves him looking helpless. Bipasha looks toned, but hardly has much to do. The romantic track between the two suffers due to the lack of any chemistry between Neil and Bipasha.

What to do: Despite technical finesse and an intriguing premise, the film fails to keep you engrossed with its hollow characters and half-baked script.
