Zero, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif, has hit the screens. The Aanand L Rai directorial is the solo Bollywood release this week and is expected to perform well at the ticket counters. 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 essayed by Katrina. Apart from the three lead actors, Zero also features Zeeshan Ayyub and has special appearances by actors like Abhay Deol, Madhavan, Salman Khan, Sridevi, Alia Bhatt, Karisma Kapoor and others.

Talking about Zero, director Aanand L Rai told PTI, “Zero is about the incompleteness of any form – be it emotional or physical. But it has nothing to do with happiness. The film is about ‘let’s celebrate life in any form’. This film makes me feel very dreamy. I being on a wheelchair can be a happier person than you. It is about accepting all the flaws and weaknesses and celebrating life. It is about romancing life not surviving. Don’t survive… live.”

Zero: Our verdict

This could have been a film for the ages. How many times do we see A-list Bollywood superstars go out of their comfort zone? SRK could have taken a deep dive into Bauua and emerged on another level: there is no one else who aces the lover-and-the-joker with as much self-awareness as he does. But he gets busy trying to do another Swades, and fly the flag, and be a patriot. In trying to do everything, very little is achieved.

Zero: Quick take's Anvita says, "The first half of the Shah Rukh Khan starrer is entertaining enough, but the second half of the movie is so disastrous that you can't help but wonder what the writer and filmmaker were thinking of when they were penning the script. Let's just put it this way, Zero suffers from the lack of a story. There's no plot, there are just lines thrown around by three very popular actors."

Katrina on SRK

In an interview with, Katrika Kaif said, “I do believe that because Shah Rukh in his approach with women and his female co-stars is all about making you better and as good as you can be. He wants his female co-stars to shine. He wants them to be strong. I do feel that it does in the end. It does add to the fact that you very rarely see an insipid, incidental character in a Shah Rukh Khan film. It’s rare. Most of the female characters in his films are well-defined and most of the women in his films also get appreciated."
