The Zoya Factor is a romantic comedy in Hindi set in the aftermath of Lagaan. The film has the potential to be a feel-good popcorn entertainer, and its concept, treatment, and performances make for a fun, satisfying movie. Its strong word-of-mouth potential should help it grow dramatically at the box office. This review focuses on the movie’s strengths and weaknesses.
The Zoya Factor is based on a novel by Anuja Chauhan, which was published in 2008. It combines elements of a Bollywood movie. Shah Rukh Khan narrates the film, and the story is about Zoya Solanki, a cricketer who was born on the day India won its first world cup. Sonam Kapoor portrays Zoya, who was born on the day India won the first cricket world cup.
While Zoya’s love life is a disaster, her work situation is no better. Her boss wishes she could fire her, but she dispatches her to shoot an ad for Pepsi. It doesn’t go as planned, and Zoya has to deal with that too. And when her boss has a plan to fire Zoya, Nikhil makes sure that the entire thing is rigged to make her look like a supermodel.
Aside from the movies’ plot, Zoya Factor also features some hilarious characters. Zoya’s family believes that she was born on the day India won the World Cup. This explains why she is often considered a lucky charm by her family. While Zoya is currently working as a junior copywriter in an ad agency, she is sent on an ad photo shoot with Indian cricket players. As the film progresses, her luck starts to shine through.
The Zoya Factor is an enjoyable film that pits luck and strategy against superstitions. Anuja Chauhan demonstrates a great talent for storytelling in her debut novel. She also gives us an insight into the world of cricket in India, as well as the lives of cricketers. And the cast is top-notch, including Sanjay Kapoor and Anurag Singh Mall.
A film with Bollywood and cricket is not complete without a love story. This is a good one for fans of both. Dulquer Salmaan, who played a nerdy cricketer in Karwaan, brings charm and macho to the role of an Indian cricket captain. The chemistry between the two actors is very believable. This film has a great cast and will definitely become a hit in the box office.
