The 'Zero' Factor
7 December 2019 | by md_bunny1003See all my reviews

The film, meant to be light and frothy, takes absolutely no effort to be brainy. The plot is extremely oversimplified, to the point of being downright silly. The story is about Zoya (Sonam Kapoor), a junior copywriter, who is unable to get her anything right, from advertising assignments to her life. Her father and army brother, both cricket fanatics, consider Zoya to be lucky for cricket, just because she was born on the day India won the 1983 World Cup.

Cut to the present day Indian team, struggling to keep the boat afloat, with scattered team players, is the team India captain Nikhil Khoda (Dulquer Salman) . His 90% of the job exists to boost the team's morale, or flex his muscles and abs. His rival, Robin (Angad Bedi), wants his captaincy and would do anything to malign his name.

Enter Zoya on a Pepsi ad- shoot(blatant integration of brands, coz advertising), where she enters the captain's life, and things turn around for her. She becomes the lucky mascot for the team, which Nikhil is dead against.

One positive aspect though: that there is some light thrown on superstition is India, among all strata of society, and the surrounding hype.

Otherwise, DQ's perfect, drool worthy abs and Sonam's batting eyelashes have nothing much to prove
