    How was Deva Katta's 2010 film Prasthanam?

    Prasthanam, a film about the constant internal fight between good and evil, could have provided a much better experience without an out-of-place romantic track, a clueless comedian (Vennela Kishore) and a feel-good family celebratory song.

    'Watch Prassthanam for the performances'

    Krishna DK tweeted, "Watch this beautiful film #Prassthanam today guys! Written and directed by the immensely talented @devakatta, this is intense and thought-provoking stuff. A throwback to good classic drama that will move you to the core. Watch it for the story, watch it for the performances!"

    Sonam Kapoor earlier spoke to The Indian Express about her character in The Zoya Factor and said, "Zoya is a mess. She has a regular job and a terrible love life. I don’t think we have had ordinary, contemporary characters like Zoya on the big screen recently. Most woman characters are shown as sati savitris or damsels in distress. She is very ordinary and someone many people can easily identify with."

    The Zoya Factor is Dulquer Salmaan's second Hindi film after 2018's Karwaan. In a conversation with indianexpress.com, Dulquer said, " I like it when the genres of my film keep changing, and my characters are different from each other. I make sure that I get to explore a wide range of characters. I love the fact that The Zoya Factor is so different than Karwaan. I hope my next one is even more different than these two films."
