Film review: ‘The Zoya Factor’ is likeable but lightweight2 min read 20 Sep 2019, 03:11 PM IST
Abhishek Sharma’s film is set in the world of international cricket
Sonam K Ahuja stars as the good luck charm of the Indian team
Early reviews of The Zoya Factor seem to agree that the film is either ‘breezy’ or ‘frothy’. As someone who isn’t averse to a light breeze (or a little froth), I found myself reasonably charmed by its opening half hour, in which adwoman Zoya (Sonam K Ahuja) meets up with the Indian cricket team, on tour in Sri Lanka, for a campaign. But then Zoya, upon receiving a list of instructions on how to behave with the Indian skipper, looks straight at the camera and says, “Is this Nikhil Khoda the captain or prime minister?" And the charm dissolves apace.
