When you have one of the Indian film’s greatest geniuses collaborating with an ace storyteller who has a talent for heartland stories, the desire levels will undoubtedly soar high! Particularly, when the man who is known to be encapsulation of sentiment takes up a job that is path not the same as his standard on-screen persona. Zero abandons you with a self-contradicting feeling. You leave the venue in wonderment of the superlative exhibitions, yet your heart declines to pardon the unstable writing in second half.
Starting with the plot, this Aanand L. Rai directorial opens in Meerut where the smallish Bauua Singh (Shahrukh Khan) trickles pomposity and honesty with equivalent energy and has his bestie (Mohammad Zeeshan Ayub) to watch his back when required. Our saint harbors a squash on hotshot Babita Kumar (Katrina Kaif). Before long, Babuua meets Aafia Bhinder (Anushka Sharma), a contrastingly abled researcher, through a marital site. Under the guise of looking for retribution from her for harming his self image, he hits kinship with her. Rather, flashes fly between them under the falling stars in the sky.
Enter Bauua’s squash Babita Kumar (Katrina Kaif), a whiz who shrouds her uncertainties and heartbreaks in her kajal-spread eyes. What pursues next is the manner by which these three ‘inadequate’ individuals progress toward becoming ‘Legend’ from ‘Zero’. The main portion of the film has some awesome established composition alongside rib-stimulating lines that are so relatable with his mark Aanand L. Rai style. It’s an exciting ride of feelings which strikes the correct note. Shockingly, the screenplay crashes and goes haywire in the second half when the story moves to NSRA and our Meerut man goes set for Mars.
Discussing the performances, Shahrukh Khan as Bauua Singh conveys one of his profession best acts and is not normal for the SRK we have seen so far on screen. He successfully breaks free the form of his fame to play a character which is so relatable. In the mean time, Anushka Sharma leaves an enduring impression with her inconspicuous execution in spite of the space contraint her character has. At last, it’s invigorating to watch Katrina Kaif in a job which investigates her acting persona other than the glitz remainder.
Zero drives home an essential point which we regularly will in general disregard in our seek after for being an ideal individual. While the film has its heart in the ideal place, even Shahrukh Khan’s charming dimples neglect to get the floundering second-half when the composing goes haywire.
