New Delhi :
Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Zero marked its big release today after much wait and anticipation. Sugar coated with a glam starcast including Shah Rukh, Katrina Kaif, and Anushka Sharma, the films seems to fall flat on audiences’ expectations. While a part of Netizens is flying with the happy colours of enjoyment and love, the other part is furious with the plot. The Aanand L Rai directorial was making rounds since its inception and now the Twitterati cannot stop gushing about it.
The movie received mix reviews and the Netizens have already begun writing their reactions on social media. While many praised the movie, there are many who criticised it for the loose plot.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “Expected so much from this collaboration [SRK and director Aanand L Rai]… Sadly, the flawed writing - especially the second hour - takes the film downhill... EPIC DISAPPOINTMENT... #ZeroReview”

Here are some of the Twitter reactions on Zero review:
Can't understand why the critics are being extremely harsh towards Zero. It has everything be it emotions, comedy, drama, thrill, performances, dialogues, fab music and of course the technical aspects.— Yash Paryani (@FilmyYash) December 21, 2018
Not a single dull moment. A wholesome entertainer!! Must watch! #ZeroReview

After a long time gathered some interest to watch an Srk starrer but the end result is same.
Wasted my 200 bucks. So dull movie.
Makes complete sense why Salman left the movie#ZeroReview
#Zero is a roller coaster entertainer! It has everything which a true blue evergreen bollywood blockbuster has! Nothing short of a masterpiece. ALR has directed it wonderfully! SRK showed us why he is the best. Go ahead and experience this cinematic marvel! 4 STARS. #ZeroReview— Lokesh Kaduskar (@LokeshKaduskar) December 20, 2018
Bauua Singh is just another quintessential guy from Meerut, with over-the-line confidence. Be it his animosity with his father (Tigmanshu Dhulia), emotional connect with his mother (Sheeba Chadda) or friendship with Guddu (Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub), Bauua is impulsive and self-absorbed. The ‘bauna’ does not let his inabilities come in the way of his confidence. Things took a different turn for this shorter version of SRK, when Afiya (Anushka) comes into the scene. The highly qualified scientist who works with NSAR stumbles in love with Bauua Singh. While Bauua is vertically challenged, she suffers from cerebral palsy. Then there is Shah Rukh style romance, colours of happiness flourish and both are soaked under the water of love.
The movie review of Zero published in NewsNation says, “We expected the plot to be extraordinary, given the difficulties of a vertically challenged, but it is no different than a regular SRK, just a few inches shorter. It is nothing but a facade, with no ulterior motive. What strikes even more distant is the writing being all over the place. With characters going left and right, the plot seems to be decorated with loose ends. While Bauua can literally strike down a star with his mere finger, the logic falls flat in its own bubble of imaginations. The dots in the film do not connect and the same goes with the characters.”
The Aanand L Rai directorial is jointly produced by Gauri Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment and Colour Yellow Productions.
