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.
