When was the last time you saw audience leave the theatre before the climax of a suspense thriller. The theatre, where we saw the first day, first show of Priyanka Chopra’s sister Mannara’s Zid, was almost occupied in the beginning, and half vacant in the end.
The film has a bad story, some erotic scenes, bad acting performance. In short, there is hardly anything good about the film.
What is the story?
Zid is the remake of 2011 German film The Good Neighbour. The story circles around Roney, whose car meets with an accident, while he is on his way back from a party. The girl, who got injured in the accident, gets killed by someone. Now the suspense is who killed the girl. Roney's ex girlfriend Priya, or his psycho lover Maya (who was with him when the accident took place)?
How is the direction?
The film is full of loopholes. For instance, there is a scene in the film, where a car hits a scooty, and the girl, who was riding the scooty, falls in the cliff, which is at least 1 KM away from the accident spot.
It’s raining in the entire film as if the film was not shot in Cherrapunji but Goa. In fact, director Vivek Agnihotri has said that it is not his direction. Now this surprise is better.
Is the film erotic?
It feels that the hot scenes have been forced into the film. Some shots have been taken from such angle that you might feel weird.
How is the suspense?
Why the film was made is a suspense in itself. It is surprising that there is not even a single surprise element in the film. The entire plot is predictable and boring.
How is Mannara in the film?
Manarra Chopra needs to quickly learn from her sister Piggy Chops if she wants to play a long inning in Bollywood. Zid won't help her much though.
Big Question-Why should I watch Zid?
Don’t waste you hard earned money on this unintentionally funny film. Watch Ungli instead.
