On the whole, ZERO has several factors going for it: star presence, winsome performances, energetic soundtrack and of course, it’s timed during the Christmas and New Year vacations. Sadly, the weak, flawed and lacklustre screenwriting is all that you recall after you’ve watched the much-awaited movie. This one’s an epic disappointment!

All said and done, Shah Rukh Khan as Bauua Singh makes sure you leave the cinema halls with a smile on your face.  The first half has some of the wittiest dialogues to come out of Bollywood. Watch this one for stellar performances, arresting cinematography & uproarious dialogues.

This could have been a film for the ages. How many times do we see A-list Bollywood superstars go out of their comfort zone? SRK could have taken a deep dive into Bauua and emerged on another level. But he gets busy trying to do another Swades, and fly the flag, and be a patriot. When you try to do everything, very little is achieved.

Shah Rukh Khan’s comic timing is the only thing going for this spluttering, tottering affair. If and when you do your next Zero, Mr Rai, do put the screenplay through the same arduous pressure test to which you would subject Tumbbad. Better still, give us more Tumbbads please.

Ladies, enforce your knees. He might be wearing an outlandish Dhoom 3 costume, he might have hair like Razzaq Khan, and speak in English so fractured it doesn’t allow him to lie about his age. Still that Shah Rukh charm is dashed hard to deny, and, as he boasts to his lover in the film, those dimples aren’t store-bought. This is why romantics across the country are safe no matter how limited the DJ’s repertoire. Any Shah Rukh Khan song will do.

So, why should you watch Zero? You should watch it for Shah Rukh Khan. His swag, his sincerity and his willingness to go-beyond-vanilla (arms stretched) is worth it Zero gets marks for Shahrukh’s experiment into a space less traveled.  If you’re curious, go ahead, amuse yourelf.Z

Rating: 3/5

So, at the end of the day, is Zero worth a watch? If you love SRK, Anushka and Katrina, then hell yeah, because they make for a deadly trio on screen. However, beware of the absurdity that the second half ensues, which will literally drive you to Mars, no pun intended.

Rating: 2/5

Zero, riding on SRK’s back, reaches for the stars. But its astral ambitions are thwarted by a lack of imagination and genuine understanding of the minds of people struggling to ward off undeserved ridicule and earn rightful recognition. But whoever expects such niceties from a movie that rarely rises above the level of unalloyed bilge?

Rating: 2.5/5

Zero has heart and humour. It also has some fine performances by its three superstar actors. Watch it if you are in mood for a different take on love with an intergalactic experience.

  1. Guys we know that SRK is doing nonsense movies but you should respect him.
    I respect Aamir & Salman even if im an SRK fans and i watched Race 3..

  2. Kia bat h zero hi ho GA bcoz low acting low story screen play 1 day 25 se ziya mushkil h high budget 200 criteria approx 3 leading cast phone bhi……

  3. Watched movie today –

    And it’s best movie of srk in last 5 years.

    Entertaining , different story , extra ordinary performance from all 3 leads , Good direction , extra ordinary diologes . Good music …yfz – Perfect and very good job. , supporting characters – jeeshan and father’s roll also too good .

    4 stars ….

    Will watch again …could have edited last 8-10 mins but chalta hai …srk was too good ..

    Nobody else could have performed to this level .

    End also is good but could have little better.

    Katrina part was little slow – but that was only for 30 mins.

  4. The three KHANs are now fading. Race 3, TOH and now Zero. All disappointment.
    Akki is hardly surviving. He has quite average figures on BO.
    Ritwik shows no hopes.
    Its now time for Rajkumar Rao, Ayushman Khurana, Varun Dhavan, Tiger Shroff to shine bright.

  5. Flop movie no good story
    Only songs are good but not matching with the film srk acting is good but he did not put extra effort for his height and looks all vfx job Anushka is brilliant but too boring her role was Katrina is superb in short role
    Second half drags
    Still one time watch
