Critics Review


The Dulquer factor is the only saving grace of this witless, charmless sham posturing as satire.

The role needed the comic timing of Juhi Chawla and feisty spirit of Kareena Kapoor's Geet Dhillon. Sonam plays her like an airhead channelling her inner Asit Sen. Although more class monitor than captain, the Dulquer factor is the only saving grace of this bland confection. His charisma and c...(more)

Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salmaan film is no sixer

The Zoya Factor is disappointing, as there was a lot more that could have been done with it. It could have been more entertaining and crisp, or even a wholesome romantic comedy. In the end, it just feels like a lot of watery Maggi without masala.(more)

Sonam Kapoor-Dulquer Salmaan film offers feel-good vibes but little else

The film doesn't ask you to apply your brains. If you are a cricket fan and enjoy chick flicks, Sonam's over-the-top act and Dulquer's good looks will hold your attention. A good watch with your friends where the fun lasts only till the film does.(more)

Not all about eve

Despite the film being a rickety ride and Dulquer Salmaan not being utilised to his best potential, the Malayalam star still ends up playing the most rounded role of the lot. He steals the show with his mere presence that is both intelligent and charming in a believable, non filmi way. He gives the ...(more)
