#Zero is weak, flawed, fails to meet the colossal expectation – Movie Review

The Shahrukh Khan’s movie ‘zero’ didn’t perform well

Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma, Katrina Kaif, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Abhay Deol, R Madhavan, Sheeba Chaddha, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub

Director: Aanand L Rai

The story of Zero is very interesting and its concept is as inspirational as it is. In the movie, Shah Rukh essays the role of a vertically challenged man who falls in love, first, with wheelchair-bound Anushka and then with a popular actress portrayed by Katrina. Apart from the three lead actors, Zero also features Zeeshan Ayyub, Sheeba Chaddha and has special appearances by actors like Abhay Deol, Madhavan, Salman Khan, Sridevi, Alia Bhatt, and Karisma Kapoor.

The story starts off in Meerut, Bauua’s hometown. Where Baua Singh flies all the money of his father (Tigmanshu Dhulia) on the Bollywood superstar Babita Kumari (Katrina Kaif). He is battered on Babita. Seeing such actions of son Bauua, his father is full of anger and started to shouting on Bauua then Bauaa shuts up Ashok while speaking French and flashing guns. Apparently, this is because of Bauaa’s subconsciously channeled anger towards his father—Bauaa blames Ashok for his short height. At one point, he says it has happened because his father chews ‘gutakha.’

A local matchmaker (Brijendra Kala) organizes a blind date between Bauaa and Aafia Bhinder. Bauua’s life changes when he chances upon the wheelchair-bound Aafia Yusufzai Bhinder (Anushka Sharma), a brilliant half-Pathan, half-Punjabi space scientist whose ambition is to see India in the forefront of the global mission to send a manned spacecraft to Mars. For him, it is love at first sight – he mistakenly presumes that the amiable Aafia is his equal because she is the first girl he can look her in the eye. But, bauua assures him of his love. But when it comes to marriage, Bauua leaves the pavilion to participate in the crazy dance competition in the love of filmstar Babita (Katrina Kaif)! What happens after this is the film that has been woven upon Zero.

This is the problem of zero. The Vaman incarnation of Shahrukh is initially thrilled, but after the advent of the adventure, it remains in the story, then just a love triangle and two such heroines, one of which is physically handicapped and at the other emotional level. Babita Kumari’s heart has been broken by her lover (Abhay Deol) and Afiya, so due to her physical weaknesses on the world’s famous space scientist, she herself also believes that no one considers her marriageable. It is a different matter that the writer himself later weakened his role by reaching the marriage with another space scientist (R. Madhavan). These lizards in the story of the film weaken Zero. Altogether, this film will look good to you, but if you are planning to watch this film as pleasure, then there is no use because the element of entertainment is missing from the film’s story.

Taran Adarsh, a film analyst has rated Zero one and a half star. Whereas other media houses have given this movie a satisfactory review. For example, Times Now rated Zero four star, Bollywood Bubble rated three and a half star, Indian Express rated this movie four and a half star and Spotboye rated this movie three and a half star. NLC Media rates Shahrukh Starer Zero with two and a half star. One star for beautiful songs, one star for Shahrukh, Anushka and Katrina Performance in the movie and half star for creating buzz before its release.

Virat Kohli Dedicates Outstanding Century To Wife Anushka Sharma, Watch Video!!

Virat Kohli single-handedly battled the England bowlers in difficult batting conditions at Edgbaston on Day 2 of the opening Test on Thursday. The Indian skipper scored his 22nd Test hundred, his first in England as India reduced the deficit to just 13 runs.

England were threatening to take control of the 1st Test with India struggling at 182 for eight. But a batting masterclass from Kohli thwarted the English and got the visitors right back into the contest. Kohli survived two dropped catches by Dawid Malan to score a sublime 149 and lift India to 274.

After reaching his century, Kohli reached under his shirt and kissed the ring he had attached to a chain. The Indian skipper then gave a flying kiss to his wife Anushka Sharma, who was watching from the stands in Birmingham.

India batting coach Sanjay Bangar praised Kohli’s innings by saying: “At one stage we were staring down the barrel, and the gap was huge, but because of his brilliance, and the commitment shown by the batsmen around him, it’s still even stevens for both sides.

“He showed terrific discipline, I felt,” added Bangar, a former India batsman. “At no instance did he reach out for the ball”

Kohli was on 97 when No. 11 Umesh Yadav came in but the tailender kept his wicket intact.

A late cut four off Stokes, his 14th boundary in 172 balls, saw Kohli reach his 22nd Test hundred.

The 29-year-old then struck several stylish attacking shots, including a classic cover-drive for four off Stokes and a lofted six off leg-spinner Adil Rashid.

The 32-year-old Dhawan took to Twitter and shared a picture of his family with the power couple and said in a playful manner, “Just strolling around the street with these two strangers!”

India, on a tour of the United Kingdom, have so far played two Twenty20 International series (vs Ireland and England) and an One-Day International series against England.

While the visitors comprehensively won both T20I series, they lost the three-match ODI series.

Dhawan was not at his best and the middle-order continued to disappoint with the likes of Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni unable to fire.

Untold Interesting Stories Of Your Fave Bollywood Couples

Unknown facts are always interesting and while it is related to B-town, it adds more excitement. Minds are always ready to grab the attention of those things which can add more spice to the discussion. Let’s give a look to those untold stories of B-town couples below:

Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan

This power couple is yet another example of the classic Bollywood inspired love saga which begins with *friendship*. The two were reportedly good friends on the sets of Dhai Akshar Prem Ke and Kuch Na Kaho, and finally ended up falling for each other on the sets of Guru. Clearly, Abhishek was not the one to be easily friend-zoned!

Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan

One absolutely endearing fact about their relationship was, that while travelling, the couple always checked into hotels as Mr. and Mrs. Khan. This was even before they were actually married, but were living-in. Well, when you know, you know.

Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar

Interestingly, when Akshay met Twinkle’s mother, Dimple Kapadia to ask her daughter’s hand, she was a little hesitant. Not because she doubted his capabilities as a person, but because she had heard from a friend of Twinkle’s that Akshay was gay!

Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma

Virat confessed what he loved most about his lady, “She is a lovely and simple person and she is as honest as well, just like I am. And that is what I love about her the most. That is my biggest attraction towards her.” On the other hand, being immensely career-oriented herself, it is Virat’s passion and enthusiastic dedication for cricket, that makes Anushka go weak in the knees. Well, dem feels.

Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan

Reportedly, after Shahrukh shifted base to Mumbai to pursue his career in acting, he would contact his girlfriend Gauri in Delhi, by making STD calls from a calling booth in Shivaji park, Dadar! Moreover, he has actually followed Gauri to Mumbai once, with only 10k in his pocket to win his love back, when she abandoned him owing to his over-possessiveness. He is the king of romance in Bollywood for a reason, clearly!

Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza

Riteish once revealed that the one thing he loves most about his wife is her contagious, positive energy which she exudes on and off-screen. When he said that her positivity could redeem an extremely exhausting day, we couldn’t help but break into a major aww moment.

What’s With The Look On Anushka’s Face!!

Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma, who is accompanying her husband Virat Kohli on a tour to England with the Indian cricket team, joined the team to celebrate former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s birthday on Saturday.

The entire gang was in a celebratory mood as they celebrated Dhoni’s 37th birthday in Cardiff. In the photographs that have now emerged on social media, we see Dhoni cutting his birthday cake with daughter Ziva Dhoni and wife Sakshi Dhoni by his side while Anushka and Virat seemed to be in a middle of a conversation when they were snapped. And Anushka didn’t seem too pleased. In fact, several social media users pointed out that the actor looked rather angry.

Some of the users quipped that the reason behind Anushka’s apparent anger is that she didn’t get a piece of cake while others wondered “why is Anushka so serious.”

While Virat is on a three-month long tour heading the Indian cricket team, Anushka Sharma has recently wrapped up Aanand L Rai’s Zero alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif and is currently working on Sui Dhaga opposite Varun Dhawan. The actor also had a box-office blockbuster in Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju, co-starring Ranbir Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor, Manisha Koirala and Paresh Rawal among others. The film revolved around the life and times of Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt and featured Anushka as a biographer.

Sanjay Dutt Makes Cameo In His Biopic Starring Ranbir Kapoor, See Here…

Sanjay Dutt’s biopic Sanju releases tomorrow. The movie features Ranbir Kapoor essaying the role of the controversial movie star. Well, there was a secret that makers had kept under wraps over the months – Sanjay makes a special appearance in his biopic. But the cat is out of the bag now. The first still of Sanjay’s cameo in Sanju is out and we have it for you!

Though the cat has come out of the bag not too before the release of the film. But we are sure you’d love to be the first one to see the picture of Sanjay in Sanju.

Well, director Rajkumar Hirani was also in a dilemma as to whether include Sanjay in the movie or not. Though Deccan Chronicle has reported that makers eventually went ahead with the idea. “It felt like an intrusion in the creative process. The minute you introduce the real character in a biopic, you provide visual proof of how far your creativity is from reality. But the makers realised that the audience would be expecting the real Sanjay Dutt to show up at least once. Besides, Ranbir was okay with it,” a source was quoted by the news daily.

Sanju also stars Paresh Rawal, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Karishma Tanna, Vicky Kaushal, Jim Sarbh amongst others.
