SIZE ZERO - Movie Reviews

Director Prakash Kovelamudi and writer Kanika Dhillon narrate Size Zero from the context of a family that doesn’t know better. The story is predictable. You know which way the romance will go and the ensuing heartbreak which will make the feisty protagonist give a serious thought to weighty issues. The surprise comes in later, when, instead of taking a melodramatic approach, the story gives enough bandwidth to blow the lid off the secrets of slimming centres.
The Hindu
Wherever the triangular love between Anushka, Arya and Sonal Chauhan should take the lead, the track is almost forgotten by Prakash Kovelamudi diluting their romantic presence by diverting the attention onto medical complications with Size zero treatment. Despite wonderful making values, rich visuals and superb portrayal of central character from Anushka, we at Cinejosh rate ‘Size Zero’ with 2.5 stars for a very feeble, disoriented narration.

However, he concentrated on showing Anushka's back and tried to convince us as gained weight of the actress. Not to undermine Sweety's hardwork and determination. No one else would have done this naturally like Anushka did. But Prakash simply wasted on a good idea and talented actress in hand.

Last half an hour turns absolute nonsense and looks like a show reel for PVP Sports. The romantic thread has no surprises and runs on a predictable note. We have seen tons of movies running with similar love triangle and it is dragged and dragged until we are fed up of it. Size Zero had the potential to be a promising film but the second half turned out to be the worst nightmare. Wish the director has put in half the efforts and hard work that Anushka has put into this film.

There are always films that take a decent start and even show some promising premise of being surprising winners. And then something atrocious happens that forces it to take a nose dive and all is lost. There have been many films in the past from Kobaribondam to Laddubabu that handled similar themes. But the makers of Size Zero have just mixed an obese issue with unhealthy diet, Slimming Centres angle,

Size Zero deals with an often overlooked issue with great sensibilities. Though it dawdled in establishing the emotional connect, Anushka easily makes you sit through with her cute traits.
OneIndia
On the whole, Size Zero is a film which has some interesting moments going its way. Interesting premise and a superb first half are basic positives of this film. If you manage to ignore the mediocre second half and predictable nature of the script, you can easily give this film a shot for Anuhska’s stunning performance and some feel good moments.

Anushka with her cute chubby looks and performance drives the first half of the movie without any jerks but second half turns upside down as it gets too boring and pretentious. It deviates from the basic idea. The main issue of a girl's weight problems takes a back seat, the typical elements of hero/heroine being in two minds about their love comes forth.
Greatandhra
First half of the film is decent and sets up a mood. Second half takes a diversion from what we prepare after watching 1st half. It becomes a serious film from then onwards. Plus points of the film are Anushka, visuals, music and production values. A single plot without deviation would have worked well for the movie. The messages, fitness facts and motivational episodes conveyed through film are good. We need to wait and see how common audiences embrace the film.

'Size Zero' works because of the performances, feel-good narration, visual treat and music.

Size Zero will be liked by all classes of the audience and mostly by the multiplexes. Especially Anushka’s cool going performance, after the hardcore Baahubali and Rudramadevi, will give a good relief to her fans.

Praksh Kovelamudi roped in Sweety Anushka to stun movie lovers with different concept ‘Size Zero’. However he failed to get his act right as he missed the plot right from the beginning.Though Prakash gets full marks for selecting a different concept, he did not work hard to get strong story. This resulted in thin storyline and he found it difficult to run the entire show on just Anushka's obese personality.

Size Zero is good at its content and execution. First half of the movie is engaging and entertaining. It ends with a smile on the faces of audience. Real drama of the movie starts with the second half. Second half becomes slow and less in entertainment as compared to its first half. Message given in the movie is good. Second half is a bit disappointment as its first half is entertaining. Finally, watch this movie for its content and Anushka’s super performance and guest roles of some actors.

By now, we all know what Anushka Shetty can do if she is provided with a meaty role. Films like Arundhati, Vanam and Rudhramadevi are a proof of the actress’ acting prowess and screen presence.
