Kal Kissne Dekha is a 2009 Hindi movie that revolves around Nihaal Singh (Jackky Bhagnani), a college student who has the ability to see the future. He falls in love with Meesha Kapoor (Vaishali Desai), a snobbish and rude girl who changes her attitude after he saves her from a bomb blast. However, Nihaal's gift also puts him in danger as he becomes the target of a ruthless criminal named Marshal (Rahul Dev) who wants to use his power for his own benefit.
The movie is directed by Vivek Sharma and features Rishi Kapoor as Professor Siddharth Verma, Nihaal's mentor who helps him control his visions. The movie also has special appearances by Riteish Deshmukh, Sanjay Dutt and Juhi Chawla. The movie is a mix of sci-fi, action and romance genres and has some catchy songs composed by Sajid-Wajid and written by Sameer.
Kal Kissne Dekha was released on June 12, 2009 and received mixed reviews from critics and audiences. The movie was praised for its novel concept and performances but criticized for its weak script and direction. The movie was also affected by the multiplex strike that was going on at that time. The movie was a box office flop and failed to launch Jackky Bhagnani as a star.
However, the movie has gained some cult following over the years and is considered as one of the rare attempts at sci-fi genre in Bollywood. The movie is available to watch online on ZEE5, a streaming platform that offers a variety of movies and shows in different languages.
Kal Kissne Dekha received mostly negative reviews from critics who found the movie to be a poorly executed sci-fi romance with a cliched and illogical plot. The critics also slammed the debut of Jackky Bhagnani, who was accused of being a nepotism product and lacking charisma and acting skills. The critics also felt that the movie wasted the talents of veteran actors like Rishi Kapoor, Archana Puran Singh and Satish Shah. The movie was also panned for its mediocre music, direction and editing.
The movie was a disaster at the box office and failed to recover its budget of Rs 25 crore. The movie faced stiff competition from other releases like New York, Kambakkht Ishq and Love Aaj Kal. The movie also suffered from the low footfalls in multiplexes due to the ongoing strike that affected the distribution and promotion of the movie. The movie was declared as one of the biggest flops of 2009.
Kal Kissne Dekha is an example of how a promising concept can be ruined by a lack of creativity and originality. The movie tried to cash in on the sci-fi craze that was popular at that time but failed to deliver a convincing and engaging story. The movie also failed to launch Jackky Bhagnani as a star and he had to struggle for years to get recognition in Bollywood. The movie is best avoided by anyone who values their time and money.
Kal Kissne Dekha also had some interesting trivia behind its making. The movie was the debut of Jackky Bhagnani, who is the son of producer Vashu Bhagnani. The movie was also the debut of Vaishali Desai, who is the granddaughter of legendary filmmaker Manmohan Desai. The movie had a cameo by Sanjay Dutt, who played a DJ in a song. The movie also had Irrfan Khan and Javed Jaffrey in its initial cast, but they later opted out due to unknown reasons.
The movie was shot in various locations in India and abroad. The movie had some scenes shot in South Africa, where Jackky Bhagnani performed a stunt of jumping from a 200 feet high bridge. The movie also had some scenes shot in New Zealand, where the crew faced some difficulties due to bad weather and technical glitches. The movie also had some scenes shot in Chandigarh, Mumbai and Hyderabad.
The movie had a soundtrack composed by Sajid-Wajid, who had earlier worked with Vashu Bhagnani in films like Mujhse Shaadi Karogi and Partner. The movie had six songs written by Sameer, who also wrote the lyrics for Bhootnath. The songs were sung by various singers like Shaan, Shreya Ghoshal, Sonu Nigam, Wajid, Alisha Chinai and Neeraj Shridhar. The songs were mostly peppy and upbeat, but failed to create any impact on the listeners. ec8f644aee
