The peppy dance number from Sanjay Dutt’s debut film Rocky lends its name to Neil Nitin Mukesh’s second film – Aa Dekhen Zara. The pair of Neil Nitin Mukesh and sexy Bong bomb Bipasha Basu will be seen on the screen for the very first time in Jehangir Surti’s venture. Produced by Viki Rajani, the film is launched under the banner of Eros International.
The story of ‘Aa Dekhen Zara’ revolves around the life of Ray Acharya (played by Neil Nitin Mukesh). Ray is a photographer by profession and is struggling to establish his name and identity. Nothing seems to go in the right direction for him, until he comes across a ‘special’ camera which he inherits from his grandfather. The camera is ‘magical’ and adds the missing ‘luck’ factor in his life.
The camera brings an overnight transformation in Ray’s destiny. From being an ordinary guy, Ray turns into someone who has loads of money and power. The camera also helps him meet the love of his life, Simi (played by Bipasha Basu). Simi is a DJ by profession. She believes in doing what she wants and allows no one to dictate her life.
Life is going on smooth for Ray, but it doesn’t take long for the greedy conmen to arrive at his doorstep, desperate to lay their hands on the magical camera. But that is not all, Ray feels that he can escape the shooter (played by Rahul Dev) and the corrupt RAW agents, but how will he escape the camera’s prediction of his all-black future.
The concept of the movie is smart and new and Jehangir Surti has done a good job. Jehangir is able to maintain the thrill of the plot till the end of the movie. He is also able to make his characters enact what their roles demand. Moreover, all the characters are well-suited in their respective roles. Neil, who had already grabbed eyeballs in his debut venture, Johnny Gaddar, once again displays charm and an effortless grace before the camera. And Bipasha too is excellent in her acting.
The music of the movie is catchy and innovative. It will make you sit up and take notice of the composition. What adds to the score of the move is that Neil Nitin Mukesh also exercises his vocal chords. He lives up to legacies of his predecessor’s in rip-roaring title track ”Aa Dekhen Zara”.
