Movie Previews

Ray Acharya (Neil Nitin Mukesh), 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 meet the love of his life, Simi (Bipasha Basu) who is an exciting sexy DJ with a mind of her own. Everything is hunky dory and moving towards 'happily ever after'.

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.

Aa Dekhen Zara is a fast-paced, romantic musical thriller with some great edge of the seat action.

Can Ray change his date with fate? Aa Dekhen Zara.

Aa Dekhen Zara says Neil Nitin Mukesh

He's the grandson of one of Indian cinema's most legendary singers but a fan of one of his grandpa's contemporaries.

Neil Nitin Mukesh will croon a Kishore Kumar song in his upcoming film Aa Dekhen Zara.

One of Kishore Kumar's most memorable numbers Aa Dekhen Zara, is famous for the jamming between R D Burman and Kishore da.

Neil Nitin Mukesh will now be seen makes his singing debut to the tunes of music director Gaurav Dasgupta for Neil's next film titled Aa Dekhen Zara.

According to Neil, "When I was shooting in New York for my film, my producer called and said they had finalised a title Aa Dekhen Zara for the film. And at that time I just hummed kisme kitna hein dum. There was silence for a bit and then he suddenly asked me, are you thinking something?"

After all, the grandson of legendary singer Mukesh and the son of Nitin Mukesh, had to carry on the legacy. Ironically, though it is, Neil Nitin Mukesh is passionate about the music of Kishore Kumar, a contemporary of his grandfather.

"It is my tribute, a fan's tribute to his Guru, If I am able to re-create the flavour of Kishore da, then it'll be great," says Neil.

Neil's love for Kishoreda's music is so deep that on being asked him to hum his favourite number, it was a Kishore Kumar song, and not one of grandad Mukesh's, that he chose.

Neil Nitin Mukesh: ADZ is not a film to showcase my dancing talent

Ever since the promos of AA DEKHEN ZARA have come on air, there is one thing that has been seen in common i.e. a dancing Neil Nitin Mukesh. Though in JOHNNY GADDAAR, Neil didn't quite get a chance to hit the dance floors, in his forthcoming release he is seen enjoying wearing his dancing shoes for the title song 'Aa Dekhen Zara' as well as a 'tapori' number 'Ghajab'.

Neil Nitin Mukesh denies though that he is using the film as a platform to show the world that he can dance as well.

''AA DEKHEN ZARA isn't a film where Neil has to showcase how good he is as a dancer'', says Neil who has made people stand up and take notice of movies, ''You needed a feel that goes with the film and hence these two dance numbers. Other than these, you will see that there are some other songs that don't really need a dance situation.''

So what is the situation here that prompts him to jive along with Bipasha Basu?

''Revealing much about it will give away the plot but what I can assure is that all that you see happening on screen is very script oriented'', defends Neil, ''Like in JOHNNY GADDAAR there was no dance situation in the film and hence I didn't start dancing out of nowhere. Similarly in this film, when song and dance begins, it is a part of the film and the story. Even when you see all the fun on the screen, there is a story behind it that is being told. You will see it for yourself when the movie comes on screen.''

Well Neil, we are waiting to see what exactly the real reason behind your vigorous moves is. Come 27th March (the day of the film's release) and we will have the answers!

Music Review : Aa Dekhen Zara

By Satyajit, Bollywood Trade News Network     

AA DEKHEN ZARA, a sporty action packed romantic potboiler brings Neil Nitin Mukesh back into action along with dusky Bong bombshell Bipasha Basu in the main leads. This directorial debutante by Jehangir Surti gets its title from Sanjay Dutt's 80's acting launch ROCKY (1981) disco song ''Aa Dekhen Zara'' and promises some really edge-of-seat action thrills. After the musical success of DUS KAHANIYAN and SUMMER 2007, Gourav Dasgupta makes a noticeable first presence of this year with Pritam joining the party with couple of engrossing tracks. It also marks the singing debut of blue-eyed boy Neil Nitin Mukesh in the marquee with loads of discotheque musical antics. As soothsayer's believes and promos promises, AA DEKHEN ZARA promises some really cool musical substance in its offering. Will AA DEKHEN ZARA be the much desired musical hit in genre of action packed thrillers? Will Neil Nitin Mukesh singing spree be adding charm to the party? Just find these out as we are all set for real party in town...

CHECK OUT: AA DEKHEN ZARA Movie Preview

Like father, like son! After Abhishek Bachchan's peppy hip-hop jives in ''Ek Main Aur Ek Tu'' (BLUFFMASTER), singing becomes serious business for star-kids as now. Neil Nitin Mukesh oils his vocal chords in living out legacies of his predecessor's in rip-roaring title track ''Aa Dekhen Zara''. Gourav Dasgupta musical aesthetics sticks to ''Panchamda'' (Late R.D. Burman) 80's disco maneuvers with strong inputs of electronically punched disco beat fillers, creating out snazzy discotheque mayhem. Veteran Anand Bakshi's lyrics remains unchanged but there is added dark noir feel of racy pulsating thriller (similar to JOHNNY GADDAR) in intimidating Sheershak Anand's added words that comes in Sunaina's seductive tones, adding to the feast. ''Aa Dekhen Zara (lounge)'' comes more like a surprise as one expected a booty shaking ''club'' remix but it soothes up senses with relaxing ''lounge'' appeal. Dibyendu Mukherji's smoothly textured vocals in supple tones has the seductive tinge with a decelerating tempo that works in tandem with accentuating romantic impulse that stays on mind. Shweta Vijay forms a ''cool'' paramour in her svelte back-up vocals and together they work like an affable sounding pair. In all fairness, Dasgupta makes ''cookies crumble'' in maneuvering out an appealing title track with gusto thrusts that should be alluring out pop genre's listeners and will be adding to flick's glam quotient.

Pritam Chakraborty streams out with full blazing burst in executing love chemistry on floors with yelling Sunidhi Chauhan and youthful Shaan making it a good communion of vocals in ''Gazab''. Pritam charters his peculiar hip-hop cum pop fusion flair as he spices up with folksy lyrical touches (lyrics by Irshad Kamil) in serenading out another entertaining number. Sunidhi makes a striking explosion of emotions in her screechy ''n'' yelling loud tones that can match the success standards of her recent hits like ''Dance Pe Chance'' (RAB NE BANA DI JODI) and ''Lucky Boy'' (BACHNA AE HASEENO). ''Gazab (club mix)'' adds to the party flavor with its thrilling and boisterous disco beat fillers and DJ claps in making it out another party feasting number.

Aa Dekhen Zara Music Review

Thursday, February 19, 2009, 16:42 [IST]
By:Joginder Tuteja, Bollywoodhungama

EXPECTATIONS

There are good expectations from the music of Aa Dekhen Zara due to multiple reasons: a) Neil Nitin Mukesh's last thriller had boasted of an edgy music. Since ADZ is a thriller as well, one expects a repeat show here, b) Bipasha Basu's presence in the film promises at least a couple of catchy foot tapping dance numbers and c) Since Pritam and Gourav Dasgupta [of Dus Kahaniyaan fame] share credits for the film's soundtrack, it is bound to be a young contemporary outing.

MUSIC

Title song 'Aa Dekhen Zara', which has it's origin in Sanjay Dutt's Rocky and has been recreated for this film, is heard in two versions. While one of these is a dance version, another is a much slower lounger version. Both the versions are created by Gourav Dasgupta and while the former is a definitely catchy and makes you hit that dance floor again, it's the second version that catches your attention most. An innovative affair, it makes you sit up and take notice of the composition due to its soothing arrangements that give the title song a different dimension altogether. In fact Gaurav deserves a pat on his back for thinking out of the box and making 'Aa Dekhen Zara' an entirely new experience.

Pritam enters into the scene with 'Gazab' which has a Western pace with an Indian base to it. Made for the masses, especially the gentry, the song (which also appears in the Club Mix version) seems to be quite ordinary in it's first couple of hearings but slowly starts becoming a lot more interesting after you have played it on for some time. It isn't great music by any means but peppy enough to mandate a good choreography around it.

Other than the title song of Aa Dekhen Zara, the number which impresses most in the album is the romantic track 'Mohabbat Aap Se'. Composed by Pritam, the number has an Indi-pop touch to it but still doesn't loose out on it's capability to impress well in the film's narrative. Though one looks forward to see that how does the song fit in with Bipasha's image, as a stand alone audio, it is one of the better numbers heard this year.

Gourav Dasgupta returns to the scene with 'Power' and 'Rock The Party'. Talking of 'Power', it appears to be a background piece which would find place in the film's narrative at numerous junctures. This number which also appears in a 'Club Mix' version is fast paced with a punch to it, but still not deadly enough to remain with a listener after it is through. Purely situational.

Last to come is 'Rock The Party' which appears to be a club number. It boasts of good Western arrangements to kick start the song that instantly reminds one of songs belonging to the genre that has been made popular by 'It's The Time To Disco'. A decent track that could also double up as the title song due to the words 'Aa Dekhe Zara' that appear in it.

LYRICS

Sheershak Anand takes the credit for writing 'Aa Dekhe Zara' in its newer version. However, most of the song stays on to be in its original format. Irshad Kamil is at his romantic best though for 'Mohabbat Aapse' which certainly would have gone a greater distance had it been made for a bona fide romantic film. However, Irshad just lets himself loose with 'Gazab' where as a listener you would hardly be catching on to the lyrics.

Syed Gulrez and Prashant write 'Power' which talks about the power of money. There isn't much that one takes home from this number, either musically or lyrically. Same holds good for 'Rock The Party' which is written by Avishek, Ravi and Sheershak Anand.

VOCALS

Neil makes a decent debut while rendering the title number 'Aa Dekhen Zara'. He has his vocals in control and gives a good account of himself as a playback singer as well. However, the singer who impresses most in the album is Dibyendu Mukherjee who is quite good in the lounge version of the same song. One would want to hear a lot more of this singer who catches your attention with an altogether unique rendition of this number that has been played on for close to three decades now! Sunaina and Shweta Vijay are the co-singers with Neil and Dibyendu for the two versions respectively.

Dibyendu Mukherjee also sings 'Power' and though he gets into the rock mode here, one would still want to revisit his much softer rendition of 'Aa Dekhen Zara'.

While Sunidhi Chauhan takes the lead in 'Gazab', it is Shaan who keeps the proceedings livelier and more engaging. He seems to be having a lot of fun in singing this (obvious) item number, something which is a departure from his patented mushy romantic songs. However, Sunidhi dominates the scene in 'Rock The Party' where she also has Shweta Vijay for company.

Aakriti, who has always impressed in every number being assigned to her, is quite good once again with 'Mohabbat Aapse'. She delivers goods once again in a quintessential romantic number.

OVERALL

Aa Dekhen Zara ends up giving a listener what he/she expected in the first place. None of the songs in the album are a bad hear at all with a couple of them ('Aa Dekhen Zara' and 'Mohabbat Aap Se') turning out to be the pick of the lot. Moreover, if promoted aggressively, even 'Gazab' has good potential. A decent soundtrack.

Music Review: Aa Dekhen Zara

Aa Dekhen Zara gets its title from Sanjay Dutt's 80's acting launch Rocky (1981) disco song ''Aa Dekhen Zara'' and promises some really edge-of-seat action thrills. After the musical success of Dus Kahaniyan and Summer 2007, Gourav Dasgupta makes a noticeable first presence with Pritam joining in the party with couple of engrossing tracks. The album also marks the singing debut of blue-eyed boy Neil Nitin Mukesh.

Neil Nitin Mukesh exercises his vocal chords in living up to legacies of his predecessor's in rip-roaring title track ''Aa Dekhen Zara''. Gourav Dasgupta's musical aesthetics sticks to Panchamda's (Late R.D. Burman) 80's disco songs with strong inputs of electronically punched disco beat fillers, creating out snazzy discotheque mayhem.

''Aa Dekhen Zara (lounge)'' is a surprise. More than a boot-shaking ''club'' remix, this one has ''lounge'' appeal.

Pritam Chakraborty in "Gazab" streams out with full blazing burst with a yelling Sunidhi Chauhan and youthful Shaan making a good communion of vocals. Pritam charters his peculiar hip-hop cum pop fusion flair as he spices it up with folksy lyrical touches (lyrics by Irshad Kamil). ''Gazab (club mix)'' adds to the party flavor with its thrilling and boisterous disco beat fillers and DJ claps in making it another party-rich number.

Akriti Kakkar's rendition of the mushy romantic track ''Mohabbat Aapse'' is impressive. Pritam's tender sounding composition sounds shades similar to ''Tinka Tinka'' from Karam (2005) but with an all together different arrangement.

Gourav Dasgupta's "Power" surrenders to the charms of wealth as Dibyedu Mukherji screams out loud ''Paisa Hai Power'' in midst of enthralling hard-rock appealing music. ''Power (club mix)'' comes out as much-predicted club remix outing.

Gourav Dasgupta maintains high pep factor of the album in ''Rock the Party'' where he rigorously follows the disco-principles of soundtracks like ''It's time to disco'' (Kal Ho Na Ho). It's an all ''girly'' number where Sunidhi Chauhan along with Shweta Vijay sets the pulse rising with her vocal oomph. Despite some enthralling disco maneuvers, it lacks the ''novelty'' factor in its frivolous thumps with Sheershak Anand's routine lyrics sounding too predictable...

Aa Dekhen Zara is another audible Bollywood ''party-album'' with all ''disco-dhamaal'' in constructively innovative 80's flavored thriller appeals. Gourav Dasgupta lauds up with couple of spicy and massy tracks like ''Aa Dekhen Zara'', ''Power'' and Rock the Party'' while Pritam makes it a ''decent-hear'' with two likeable tracks in ''Gazab'' and ''Mohabbat Aapse''.
