The Zoya Factor is a film adaptation of a 2008 novel by Anuja Chauhan. It is directed by Pradhuman Singh, who previously worked on the Abhishek Sharma film Tere Bin Laden. The film has an easy-breezy rom-com vibe and is full of charm and wit. It is a must-see. However, it is not perfect. While it does have some flaws, it is worth seeing if you like rom-coms.
The Zoya factor is the ability to persuade a superstitious team member to play by claiming that they will be successful without her. In the film, Zoya is the god-woman who is credited for clinching a successful campaign and overcoming obstacles. Khoda’s team turns around a losing streak with Zoya’s help, and the Zoya factor helps them win.
Zoya Singh Solanki is a young woman born on the same date as the 1983 World Cup. She works in an advertising agency and loves advertising, but hates playing cricket. Nevertheless, she is forced to work with Men in Blue for an ad film, and discovers that she is a lucky charm for cricket. When she starts revealing her ‘luck factor’ story to national-level players, they start considering Zoya as their ‘lucky charm’, which ends up helping them win World Cup matches.
In India, cricket is a religion and players are idolized. ‘The Zoya Factor’ tries to make an unforgettable innings in cinema history, but falls short. Unlike other Bollywood films, ‘The Zoya Factor’ aims for a more wholesome film experience. Despite the film’s shortcomings, it is worth checking out. Once again, the cast is amazing and the story is well-paced.
Dulquer Salmaan is an incredible star, who not only stars in Malayalam films, but has ventured into Tamil and Telugu cinema as well. Despite this, his stardom is still his greatest asset, and he gives Zoya plenty of charm in the process. With this kind of star power, the movie is bound to be a box office hit. However, it is not for everyone.
Although Zoya lives in an upper-middle-class house, she acts like a lower-middle-class person, taking sips from a beer bottle when she’s bored. Zorawar, on the other hand, should be doing gainful work. Some characters even sound like amalgamations of real-life cricketers. Gagan Khoda played for India. Robin Rawal plays a major role.
