The Zoya Factor is based on the novel by Anuja Chauhan. Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salmaan star in this post-Lagaan cricket movie. The film explores a world that isn’t really there. Although the story is based on real events, the screenplay by Pradhuman Singh Mall and Neha Sharma is quite effective. Overall, the film is light, but lacks emotional punch.
The story revolves around Zoya’s love life, as well as her professional life. She barely has any friends and always seems to make the wrong decisions. However, she’s a star-struck copywriter who must prove her worth to her boss. Zoya also lands a challenging campaign with the Indian cricket team. This time around, she’ll have to work alongside popular captain Nikhil Khoda.
The film’s 65% rating comes from reviews. It is a medium user review. There are romance, comedy, and drama scenes in the movie. Overall, the film has a medium IMDb rating. Although there are many flaws in the movie, the cast is solid. The story is enjoyable, and Zoya and Nikhil are charming. However, if you’re interested in seeing the film, you should know the film’s full score.
Zoya is considered a lucky charm by many. The fact that she was born on the night India won its first World Cup game makes her a perfect candidate for the role of official mascot. She’s also offered a position on the Indian cricket team as a mascot. Zoya’s charm can convince any team member to win. If you’re superstitious, you’ll have to keep the luck in check.
Zoya’s Big Break features some of the film’s most memorable scenes. The witty Hindi commentator duo, narrator, and football-themed soundtrack are some of the most enjoyable parts of the movie. Unfortunately, this film is riddled with brand plugins. Pepsi, Harley Davidson, and an ad agency all have their own songs, and the background score from Shankar-Ehsaan Loy is mediocre.
While there are hits and misses in this film, its greatest appeal is the cast. Sonam Kapoor’s role is similar to Millie in Khoobsurat 2.0. The actress often breaks the fourth wall in the film, talking directly to the camera. However, her self-deprecating humour, and scenes with Sikander Kher and Sanjay Kapoor, make her shine most.
While Angad Bedi’s screen presence is strong, his role isn’t as well developed as it could have been. Anil Kapoor gives a rare 45-second cameo, and Sikander Kher plays Zoya’s brother Zorawar. And the running cricket commentary keeps the laughs coming. This is the first film I’ve seen with this cast and it’s a definite must-watch for cricket fans.
Zoya’s Luck Factor is part of Team India’s winning formula, but it also causes rifts between Nikhil and Robin. The team ends up winning the tournament, despite Zoya’s luck factor. Zoya’s Luck Factor seems to discredit the hard work of the players in Team India. This is an entertaining movie with a happy ending. If you are looking for something to watch this summer, Zoya will not disappoint.
