6 reason why SRK-Katrina-Anushka starrer 'Zero' is a must-watch film


No other Bollywood movie has generated as much buzz and pre-release hype as the SRK-starrer Zero. An Aanand L. Rai directorial, the film has a stellar leading cast and a highly unique protagonist, all of whom come together to build excitement among fans the likes of which we’ve seldom seen before. As Zero finally released in theatres, we got to see what all the hype is about!
Here’s why we fell in love with Bauua Singh and his universe:
Shah Rukh Khan’s portrayal of Bauua Singh
We were wondering how Bollywood’s king of romance would pull off a Meerutiya dwarf. However, seeing him in this lovable new personality that perfectly mixes naughty with nice is a magical treat we couldn’t have imagined! The accent, the expressions, the vocabulary, and the chemistry – all had us floored from the very first scene!
Katrina's and Anushka's experimental performances 
Well, it’s not every day that you see two of India’s most beautiful actresses sharing the silver screen in polarised roles.
Anushka Sharma’s performance as Aafia Yusufzai Bhinder, a brilliant, wheelchair-bound scientist, is a bold new step that she has taken with grace and that trademark quirky freshness that she brings to the table.

Katrina Kaif has slayed in her role of Babita Kumari. Her depiction of a Bollywood starlet battling with personal issues is eye-opening. We’re not afraid to say that this is hands down her best performance ever!
The background score and Songs
When it comes to a film like Zero, the acting performances need to be properly backed by an audio experience that drives home the emotion of drama. Issaqbaazi, Mere Naam Tu, and Heer Badnaam feature at perfectly placed milestones in the plot, with the first one cleverly working in some seamless dance cameos too! Even the background score hits highs and lows.
Meerut to the USA
If you’re unaware of the vibrant little town of Meerut located in Uttar Pradesh, you are certainly in for a treat. Zero’s storyline plunges you deep into the congested streets of Meerut, before taking you to the pristine urban landscapes of USA. The Meerutiya lifestyle, the locals, and the culture that their world thrives on, is captured beautifully.
Bauua’s universe – literally!
Protagonist Bauua Singh builds as much intrigue as excitement, with not just his character, but also what seem to be supernatural talents. This is a never-before-seen Aanand L. Rai universe in which the hero can interact with the sky, charm any woman he meets with his personality, and there’s a chimpanzee! This love story occurs in a Disney-esque setting, with imaginative possibilities.

Aanand L. Rai - Captain of the Ship
Over the last decade, we’ve had our ribs tickled and our heartstrings plucked watching Aanand L. Rai’s romantic comedies. He brings the same approach to Zero, bound together by Himanshu Sharma’s tight script. He has intricately woven a variety of unique characters with compelling situations to create the world of Zero.
Zero comes together through three spectacular elements: seasoned talent, boundless imagination, and unconditional love for Bollywood and its fans. Three things coming together to create a thumbs up film. The best part about it is that we are all invited!
