Vivek Sharma the director of this supernatural thriller Kal Kissne Dekha, began his Bollywood career as Mahesh Bhatt’s assistant. Armed with a master’s degree in physics Kal Kissne Dekha appears to be an outlet of his long cherished college dreams of foreseeing the future. Kal Kissne Dekha movie review…
Kal Kissne Dekha is the story of Nihal Singh (Jacky Bhagnani) from Chandigarh who is a seemingly simple yet unconventional boy. He talks too much, questions everything and builds complicated gadgets in his spare time. He has a brilliant mind and an oddball sort of charm. He adores his mother, has dreams of studying in the most elite institute of science and always looks for big ideas in small things. His ambition is to become a scientist.
But and yes, there is a big secret about Nihal. Flashes of the future come to him as visions. Sometimes the future comes to him in his dreams, sometimes when he is emotionally charged.
When he gets admission in his dream college in Mumbai, he is over the moon. College is a whole new world, full of color, new people and new challenges to be met.
Initially nobody takes him seriously. He is ragged by his seniors, insulted by the girl he likes and so on. Nihal gradually wins them over.
The girl Nihal likes is Meesha (Vaishali Desai). She is a spoilt brat, disrespectful and mean. And she’s pompous about it. Meesha is rolling in money and rude at times. She cannot accept that Nihaal is steadily managing to charm one and all. She plots and plans against him, most of it doesn’t go as per plan.
Professor Verma (Rishi Kapoor) is the college warden and a senior professor in science. Nihal finds a father-figure in him and someone he can look up to. The professor is fascinated by Nihal’s unique mind and accedes to become this boy’s mentor.
Suddenly Nihal’s world is rudely interrupted. He gets visions of Meesha being in danger. He saves her life and his secret is revealed. The media and TV channels are all buzzing with only one news – Nihal Singh from Chandigarh can see the future.
Meesha softens towards him and love blooms. But there are more difficult times ahead.
What Nihal doesn’t know is that someone is trying to use his gift against him. In his innocence he is manipulated and his visions become a too. Will betrayal be his fate… or will Nihal’s brilliant mind recognize the traitor before he destroys everything that Nihal loves?
Kal Kissne Dekha is meant to be the launch pad of the producer Vashu Bhagnani’s son Jackky Bhagnani. He act well for a new comer, fights and dances exceptionally well too. Jackky is talented and this debutante has a good future. Vaishali Desai, who is in her first film, is confident, good looking and acts well. The chemistry between the lead pair is just perfect.
Rishi Kapoor and Rahul Dev are fine. Ritesh Deshmukh for a brief while tries hard to evoke laughter, but he is wasted here. Sajid Wajid’s music and energetic songs cater to the popular variety. Well, the producer has managed a grand look as far as the picturisation of the songs are concerned. Johny Lall’s cinematography is eye pleasing and excellent.
The film Kal Kissne Dekha somewhere lacks the fun and thrills that one normally associates with a campus fare (remember Khiladi or even the not so successful Barsaat?). Anyway, it is all fun and dance, peppered with a little twist. .
