Aa Dekhen Zara - Movie Preview
'Aa Dekhen Zara'
‘Aa Dekhen Zara’ is a fast-paced, romantic musical thriller that promises some great edge-of-the-seat action.
The movie stars one-film-old Neil Nitin Mukesh with Bipasha Basu . Neil plays a photographer while Bipasha plays a DJ.
Neil Nitin Mukesh as Ray Acharya
Ray, 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 to meet the love of his life, Simi.
Bipasha Basu as Simi
Simi is an attractive, sexy DJ. An independent woman, she has a mind of her own.
Everything is hunky dory between Ray and Simi and the duo seem headed for a 'happily ever after' life.
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.
Can Ray change his date with fate? Aa Dekhen Zara.
The movie has music by Pritam and Gourav Dasgupta while action is by Sham Kaushal. The movie also features a song sung by Neil and Bipasha.
The movie’s supporting cast includes Rahul Dev and Sophie Choudhary .
Directed by Jehangir Surti, ‘Aa Dekhen Zara’ is produced by Viki Rajani. The film is made under the banner of Eros International.
The movie is set for release on March 27.
If you are expecting music of ‘Aa Dekhen Zara’ to be in the same league as the superhit track Aa dekhen zara of ‘80s then you will meet sheer disappointment. The music of the movie is less than average and two tracks by Pritam don’t do any good to the movie’s soundtrack.
The album features eight tracks. Music is by Gaurav Dasgupta while Pritam stays on the margins. Lyrics of the songs are mainly by Irshad Kamli and bunch of other lyricists like Syed Gulrez, Prashant, Avishek and Ravi.
It’s no joke redoing an RD Burman track and Pritam himself gave up giving a modern garb to the everlasting Aa Dekhen Zara . Eventually, it’s the other composer who had to adapt the song to modern setting.
The yesteryears hit number Aa Dekhen Zara gets two new versions with a simple remix and a lounge mix. Vocalised by Neil Nitin Mukesh himself, the remix version, like its original track, is full on energy and beats. Neil gets to test his singing skills with this song and has done a nice job. Supporting him on mike is singer Sunaina. Whereas, the lounge mix is a slow number, rendered passionately by Dibyendu Mukherjee. Both the tracks are just average with no special modulations or experiment.
The track Gazab Bhayo Rama has Pritam as composer. The song crooned by the power-pack duo Shaan and Sunidhi tries to rekindle the charm of disco era of ‘70s, but the music is just normal. Even its club remix is nothing unusual. Both the tracks are not magnetic enough to lure DJs as well as party animals.
The only song which is a bit romantic and typical of Bollywood is Mohabbat Apse in voice of Aakriti Kakkar. Pritam must have created this song in casual mood as the track is not exceptionally good but what makes it worth listening is Aakriti’s voice, but mind it, not in repeat mode.
Tracks Power and Power club mix are situational background numbers. In the voice of Dibyendu Mukherjee again, both the songs act as mere fillers in the album. The song Rock the party has an impressive start but this song, like others in the album, also fails to impress. However, Sunidhi Chauhan does impress you with her vocals.
‘Aa Dekhen Zara’ is being promoted as fast-paced musical thriller. But the insipid tunes of the songs don’t auger well for the genre, particularly in the movie’s publicity prior to release.
Now the makers have to rely on the cast as Neil Nitin Mukesh and Bipasha’s pair is already scorching the screen, quite evident in the trailers.
There is nothing worth mentioning about ‘Aa Dekhen Zara’ music however except two words – skip it.
Thanks for the Review!
Music... skip... but movie sounds interesting
