Being SRK fan it’s very difficult for me to come up with any thing which I felt wasn’t right about the movie for me it was like “a bit of everything” yet had it’s own identity and standing kind of movie. I can not stop praising the amount of handwork done on this film. Shahrukh Khan’s acting and the entire movie in it self was a beautiful amalgamation of excellent acting and exceptional technology. The character of Bauaa Singh appears to be so believable and original in the film that you can’t even tell if Bauaa Singh is real or not. His dialogues and his chemistry with his best friend Guddu Singh played by the super talented Zeeshan Ayyub were the highlight of the movie because their relation has been given due importance in the movie and is kept till the very end of the movie. SRK justified his role and the entire character of Bauaa Sing convincingly and marks his place strongly in the movie. Now, talking about other characters
Katrina Kaif as Babita Kumari
Katrina Kaif usually does not come in my A- list “Actors” list to be very honest. I always look up to her for her dance and her beautiful looks and the persona she has but when it comes to acting I prefer so many other actresses than her. I agree beating her in dance and fitness is almost impossible for the good actresses like Vidya Balan or kangna Ranaut or any other method actresses in Bollywood but in acting her accent and flat dialogues does not actually impress me a lot. To my surprise her acting in Zero was actually really good as I did not expected that level of involvement in her character I thought i’ll mainly watch Anushka and Shahrukh and like “Thugs of Hindustan” she’ll be an eye candy here too but the use of her character to the plot was extremely important and crucial as Babita Kumari plays the main role in making Bauaa realise his love for Aafia, breaking Bauaa’s heart with such grace melted my heart and her troubled superstar expressions won million hearts am sure. Plus I also found her accent better this time and her dialogue delivery was convincing too apart from acting he looked like a bombshell, her moves to “Husn Parcham” are sexy and difficult and extravagant at the same time and her killing expressions and mood in “Heer badnaam” worths it all. In comparison to the “Thugs of Hindostan” Zero has marked Katrina Kaif this time as a good artist and this by far me Katrina Kaif’s best performance.
In the first half of the movie we see Bauaa Sigh going in to flash backs to tell the story of his short affair with Aafia who is a middle age woman suffering from cerebral palsy but is a genius scientist, and they both meet through a matrimonial service which puts a limelight on the relationship of Aafia and Bauaa Singh who tries to do everything to woo this girl who he thinks is equal to him. Anushka Sharma in the first half does not seem be very promising with the character as I saw her struggling in acting or in acting a person in such condition which also effects the level of performance she give as the main lead of the movie I think perhaps they should have made Aafia’s character just disabled rather making her a person suffering from cerebral palsy as she can’t in act such a condition with conviction and making it believable for the audience was also not an easy job. I’d say it was not the best of her but she did a fair job and makes her mark, though it could’ve been much much better.
Over all for me zero is a family movie it takes you to a very different journey where you see the difference between passion, love and realisation of someone’s love for you and what you want from life and how to achieve it with a non giving up attitude. It makes you feel that no one is disable in fact every person who lacks in something is differently abled by God like the character of Bauaa and Aafia. They both depict Hope which is the most important aspect of life. The films music is great, the dance numbers emotional background score and the originality of them I must say was amazing as in Bollywood nowadays original music is truly a luxury and I am sick and tired of remixes to be honest. I’d rate it a 4.5/5 on Nickometer and hence it’s a SUPERHIT!!!!
