Ray Acharya (Neil Nitin Mukesh), a struggling
photographer has nothing going for him... until he

As they say, with great

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
meet the love of his life, Simi (Bipasha Basu) who is an
exciting sexy DJ with a mind of her own.
Ray doesnít know that the
camera is special until he slowly realizes the pictures
he clicks today, develop in future tense. He just checks
the camera and clicks a new car parked in his compound.
When the photo is developed, it showed the carís window
cracked, and indeed the next day, he witnesses a cricket
ball smashing the carís glass.
In a second instance, Ray
clicks the picture of a child, and the photograph shows
the kid and his mother falling off a giant wheel. When
that happens exactly like in the photograph, Ray wonders
what else more he can do with his grandfatherís legacy.
Then he realizes how much money he can make after he
buys a lottery ticket, knowing the winning number. The
next step is putting money into horseracing; and he is
suddenly rolling in wealth. Now he buys a sprawling home
and a nice car..
Everything is hunky dory and moving towards 'happily
The film has an interesting
thought but the story telling (which is the screenplay)
lacks continuity and excitement. It has nice songs,
especially the title number Aa Dekhen Zara and the other
well choreographed and pasteurized song at a tacky pub in
Neil Nitin Mukesh, like in
his debut film Johnny Gaddaar, has less to emote, and is
required to carry a blank expression, which he does well.
Bipasha Basu is apt in her part as the DJ, while the hot
girl Sophie Choudhry is included only as the glamour
quotient. Rahul Dev is impressive, while the star of
yesteryears Biswajeet is there only for a very short time.
Aa Dekhen Zara is a fast-paced, romantic musical thriller
with some great edge of the seat action. The film starts
off with a lot of energy, but drags in the second half.
