ZERO All Critic Reviews & Ratings

At first go, the film makes you light and easy, which is good, but the problem is that it doesn’t really take you on that flight of entertainment, which you set out for.

But in the end it feels as if the makers threw everything at the wall and decided to see what sticks. Unfortunately, very little does.

This film’s Bauaa basks in his own buffoonery and has a bloated and misguided self-worth that makes him more abominable than adorable.

Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma make the first part of Zero flat-out fantastic, an unabashed charm-offensive. It is as the film continues, and gets more fanciful, that the seams start to show.

The VFX is convincing and I loved the Ajay-Atul ballad Mere Naam Tu. But the rest of this film left me stumped and eventually, sad.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-2/5
Zero, riding on SRK's back, reaches for the stars. But its astral ambitions are thwarted by a lack of imagination and genuine understanding of the minds of people struggling to ward off undeserved ridicule and earn rightful recognition.

Sadly, the weak, flawed and lacklustre screenwriting is all that you recall after you’ve watched the much-awaited movie. This one’s an epic disappointment!

But Zero fails spectacularly at giving us anything we can believe in, and we go from start to finish, with disbelief growing with each passing frame.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-2/5
The romantic declarations are less effective, the conviction with which Khan has carried off more modest romances is missing, and the package is smaller than before.

  • News 18 | Review By - Rohit Vats | Rating-1/5
Zero is a fantasy ride that ends up nowhere. From writing to direction and editing, everything has failed the project.

  • Filmfare | Review By - Devesh Sharma | Rating-3/5
To cut it short, you feel like you’re watching two different films as the first half and the second half are vastly dissimilar to each other.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-3/5
Still Zero is far from a misfire. Its cheerfully absurd aspirations are strewn in metaphors laying value to imperfections and SRK's gallery playing showmanship.

  • India Today | Review By - Ananya Bhattacharya | Rating-2/5
But without legs to stand on, the superficial can do only so much and no more. Zero the film, like its lead character Bauua Singh, falls short.

  • DNA | Review By - Meena Iyer | Rating-3/5
So, why should you watch Zero? You should watch it for Shah Rukh Khan. His swag, his sincerity and his willingness to go-beyond-vanilla (arms stretched) is worth it.

Overall Average Rating - 2.2/5
