Bauua Singh also meets Aafia (Anushka Sharma) through Shaadi.com and starts falling for her. Soon there develops a bond between them and the rest of the film is all about what happens next. Watch Zero to know about the film.
Zero has a dose of emotional drama that is the major highlight of the film. Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma outshines in their assignments and impresses the audience big time. The first half of Zero has all the ingredients and will impress all the sections of audience. The songs are well placed and are shot on a lavish scale. Shah Rukh Khan steps out with one more exceptional performance and he is a treat. The first half of Zero is quite impressive.
The second half of the film is not for everyone and it will appeal to limited sections of audience. Though the film has enough flaws, the beautiful moments will take the lead on the film. Yes, the film dips down but the performances and the emotional drama make it bounce back. The songs have been good. On the whole, the second half will have a limited appeal because of the emotional drama.
Shah Rukh Khan proves once again that is the king when it comes to perform. He leaves you in wow with his performance and portrayal as Bauua Singh. He carries the entire movie on his shoulders. Anushka Sharma has been decent and her character is more on emotional note and her dialogues have been top notch. Katrina Kaif has been hot enough in the film and she has a limited role assigned. She lives up the expectations as a Superstar in Zero. Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub performs well. Cameos of Sridevi, Alia Bhatt, Kajol, Karisma Kapoor Juhi Chawla and Deepika Padukone are completely wasted.
Zero has a thin plot and is laced on entertainment and emotional drama. The screenplay and dialogues are the film's biggest strengths. The cinematography work should be widely appreciated and the music, background score lives up the expectations. As expected the film has been made on a lavish scale. Anand L Rai has been decent with his work and his work has been good.
Zero Final Word
Shah Rukh Khan steps out with one more top notch performance and is a treat to watch.
