Size Zero Movie ReviewApr 21, 2016 11:38 AM
After tasting two back to back blockbusters Baahubali and Rudhramadevi, Anushka Shetty is all set for her next Size Zero. Understandably, Anushka has put on lot of effort for the film. Right from gaining 18 kilos weight to promoting the film vigorously, Anushka has put on her heart and soul. In addition to this, good promotional strategy has created a good buzz, hype around the film. Let’s see whether the film lived up to it or not.
The film is basically about a fat girl, who puts her parents in distress as they often fail to find her a suitable bridegroom. Obviously, the problem here is her overweight. Size Zero also showcases the day-to-day life issues faced by an obese girl and that's about it. The film then narrates the efforts taken by her to lose weight, and that comes with a social message.
As expected, Anushka is the scene stealer in this flick. The entire movie revolves around her and she has done complete justice to her role. Her performance is one of the major highlights of this movie.
Other notable performances comes from Prakash Raj, who plays a gym owner, and Urvashi (Anushka's mother). Urvashi has yet again flaunted her talent quite convincingly.
As this movie is all about Anushka, Arya gets little opportunity to display his acting prowess. Having said that, he has done his job neatly.
Plus Points :
Minus Points :
Lags in narration
Though the first half is enjoyable to an extent, the latter half gets way too draggy for one's liking. With stretched climax and a couple of unnecessary songs, size zero does test your patience at times. Not to mention few comedy sequences that fail to evoke laughter.
Nirav Shah's cinematography is top notch and deserves a mention. MM Keeravani's background score elevates certain ordinary scenes and is an added advantage. What does not work out in size zero is its writing, for a wafer thin storyline is stretched beyond its limit, making the film look boring at times.
Yes, the film has its issues, especially in the technical department, but Size Zero can be considered saved by Anushka's terrific performance and a relevant social message.
