Baua Singh (Shahrukh Khan) is a person from Meerut who is vertically challenged, but he is a very good person at heart. He falls in love with a scientist named Aafiya (Anushka Sharma). Aafia suffers from cerebral palsy. This unique love story of both reaches America from India and from there to space. In this journey of love story, there are many difficulties in the life of Baua and Aafiya.
A great concept requires that it be produced equally well, but not every good story gets the treatment it deserves. The story of 'Zero' is very interesting and its concept is equally inspiring. The story, from Meerut to Mars, has been served with ideas like science, interplanetary travel and unwavering love, but in the process of doing so, the film eats up many places.
'Zero' is unable to do justice to any one, in the process of showing many emotions and ideas simultaneously. Although some scenes are very powerful, some disappear from the screen as if they were a shooting star.
The story begins in Meerut, where Baua Singh spends all the money of his father (Tigmanshu Dhulia) on Bollywood superstar Babita Kumari (Katrina Kaif). He turns to Babita. His father is filled with grief and anger after seeing such activity of son Baua, but things change when Baua meets the highly qualified and capable scientist Aafiya.
Baua is vertically challenged and afflicted with cerebral palsy and both of these drawbacks lay the foundation for their new relationship. However, there is a difference of ground-sky in the personality of both and this difference becomes a strong pillar of the film's story. Meanwhile, Bollywood actress Babita Kumari's entry into the life of Baua and Aafia again, which leads to more drama.
The best part is that these characters in the film have not let their physical challenges dominate their nature and mood. Shahrukh is the king of romance and has played his romantic character in the film with perfection. Shahrukh is cast in a dwarf role. Katrina's role is very small, but she has also impressed. As far as Anushka Sharma's character is concerned, there was a lot of potential in it and it could be made even more life-saving. The practical portrayal that Anushka portrayed to play the character of a cerebral palsy did not feel special.
The film has some comedy scenes between Shah Rukh and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayub and is life-threatening. The film's song 'Mere Naam Tu' has been made colorful and entertaining by Shahrukh with his dance. Overall, you will like this film, but if you plan to watch this film only as entertainment then there is no use because the element of entertainment is missing from the story of the film.
