Aa Dekhen Zara is a film directed by Jehangir Surti. This is a sci-fi thriller film. This film goes far-fetched with powerful characterizations and substantial screenplay, though it stumbles at few points. Jehangir had a nice concept for this film that starts well but fades away after the first hour.
Ray Acharya (Neil) is a down on luck wildlife photographer. As things start going from bad to worse, he inherits his grandfather’s (Biswajeet) special camera which changes things overnight for him. The camera has the special ability to reveal the future through the photographs taken from it. Ray starts using it for his own materialistic benefits and starts enjoying life.
He manages to get a girlfriend, Simi (Bipasha) who works as a DJ in a night club. But then his special gift becomes a threat for India’s enemies and the issue of national security looms large. 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.
Ray has to keep the camera safe from the evil forces headed by one Captain (Rahul Dev). How Ray handles it all and what shocking revelation he has to face during the climax forms the rest of the film.
One thing is worth mentioning that despite of several flaws and loopholes in the script the film manages to keep you on the edge of your seat, not because of the characters or story but because you get hooked to know about the futuristic events shown by this magical camera.
Acting wise, Neil Nithin Mukesh is best as Ray. Bipasha Basu's performance is superb. She looks gorgeous on screen. Rahul Dev is top notch. He has delivered a mind blowing performance.
On the whole, Aa Dekhen Zara is a film with good concept which had all the chances to do well but the weak script and screenplay make it an average film. Otherwise the chemistry between Bipasha and Neil is superb. They have excellent timings. But the film lacks the stamina to run steadily.
