What The Zoya Factor Is All About?

Zoya Singh Solanki (Sonam Kapoor), who considers herself unfortunate, works for an established advertising agency which handles the account of brands endorsed by the Indian cricket team. One day, she is assigned to handle a photoshoot of the men in blue, led by Nikhil Khoda (Dulquer Salmaan).

Though Zoya considers herself unfortunate, she is lucky when it comes to cricket. India lifted the World Cup trophy when she was born. Her brother has won every gully cricket match in her presence. But will her luck work for Captain Nikhil Khoda’s team? Will Indian cricket team lift yet another World Cup in her presence? To know more, watch The Zoya Factor in the cinema closest to you.

Is The Zoya Factor Worth Your Time & Money?

When the posters and the trailers of the movie hit the internet, The Zoya Factor seemed to be a fun film to watch. Thankfully, it did not disappoint and lived to expectations pinned on it. The movie is replete with several magical moments that stay with you even after you have come out of the theatre.

As Zoya, Sonam Kapoor does well. Her character seems to be an easy one for her where she did not have to put in much efforts to nail it. However, it is Malayalam superstar Dulquer Salmaan who steals the show from everyone. He is a treat to watch on the screen and does complete justice to his character.

The chemistry between Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salmaan is crackling. Sanjay Kapoor and Angad Bedi also put forth endearing performances.

The main issue with the film is its writing which is not up to the mark. Some dialogues are genuinely funny, while others are dull and trite. The film fails to maintain the same tempo throughout. The songs are also unforgettable. There was scope to add some interesting songs to the narrative, but what we get are pure bland melodies.

Final Verdict

You can watch The Zoya Factor for amazing performances it puts at the display, especially of Malayalam star Dulquer Salmaan. He is a delight to watch on screen. It is a fun film that you can enjoy with your bunch of friends. I am going with 3 stars.
