anushka’s size zero has been in the news for quite some time. After a huge round of promotions, the Prakash Kovelamudi-directed film finally hit the screens today. let’s see how it is.
sweety(anushka) is a pretty girl who suffers from overweight problems. even after so many attempts, her mother is unable to marry her off. Disappointed with rejection all the time, Ella Sweety decides not to get married any time soon.
This is also the moment he meets abhi(arya), an nri who makes documentaries. sweety falls in love with abhi and starts to get close to him. The twist in the story comes when Abhi begins to switch allegiances from her to his dashing close friend Simran (Sonal Chauhan).
Disappointed at rejection yet again, Sweety decides to join a weight loss program called Size Zero. Will sweety be able to reduce her weight? What problems does she face during this time? And will she win back her love? that forms the rest of the story.
It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that Anushka is the only actress in Tollywood who can play that role. the star heroine is simply magnificent and makes the audience fall in love with her character and her problems. Anushka has quite a lively character and the hard work she has put into gaining weight is clearly shown on the screen.
arya is very supportive of anushka and performs well in her role. Prakash Raj once again impresses with her unique character. sonal chauhan is apt in her role and provides the necessary visual appeal.
The first half of the movie is quite good, with lots of entertainment and beautiful emotions. A special mention must also go to the way Anushka has been styled with her costumes. she looks cute and completely convinces in a chubby look. Urvashi is impressive in the role of Anushka’s mother.
once again, another tollywood movie flops during the second half. after narrating the film so convincingly during the first part, the filmmakers shifted the focus to things that could easily be smoothed over.
What could have been a very emotional and cute love story is spoiled by an unnecessary display of the size zero weight loss program. the film drifts a bit during the second half, as some unwanted scenes and emotions take center stage. the simplicity, romance and cuteness of the film get lost and make things tedious.
The pvp production values are good and they should be given credit for attempting a unique script like this. the camera work is very good and it highlights anushka and the surroundings quite well. the script falls apart during the second half as the film loses control a bit. the editing is elegant and the musical score by m m keeravani fits well with the mood of the film.
coming to director prakash kovelamudi, he had everything right for this film. from the story, the star cast, and the performances, it manages to do a decent job. If he had been a little more careful during the second half, the effect and connection would have been even better.
Overall, Size Zero is a movie that has some interesting moments along the way. Interesting premise and a great first half are basic positives of this movie. If you can ignore the lackluster second half and the predictable nature of the script, you can easily give this movie a chance to see anuhska’s impressive performance and some nice moments.
