Zed Plus - Movie Reviews

The film begins with a Sufi song featuring an over-enthusiastic Sukhwinder Singh (he really ought to stick to singing) and Hrishitta Bhatt doing Bollywood's version of a folk dance
Sify
This movie deserves to be seen by all those who love good political satire and simple films and will be glad that finally an original political satire is made in our Hindi films which is not a weak inspiration of 'Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron'.

Zed Plus allows a bunch of talented actors to rise above second rung roles and take centre stage

You may not agree with the cheeky politics of Zed Plus. But you can't deny its integrity, warmth and humour.
Hindustan Times
एक सामाजिक राजनीतिक सटायर है। फिल्म एक आदमी के नजरिए से लोकतंत्र पर कटाक्ष करती है। दरअसल फिल्म में दिखाया गया है कि प्रधानमंत्री (कुलभूषण खरबंदा) अपनी सरकार की डगमगाती हालत से परेशान हैं।

Whilst filming a political satire it's very easy to go overboard in trying hard to send your message across as well as pull in the laughs

One of the reasons why Adil Hussain took the lead role in Director Chandra Prakash Dwivedi‘s “Zed Plus” (a play on ‘Z-plus security’, the highest level of security provided by the government to VIPs barring the prime minister) was that he felt it was a ra

The subject matter could have been interesting but it is mired in tedious, very boring, rural and regional cliches that audiences have already seen, so many times
Times of India
Chandra Prakash Dwivedi the maker of the brilliant 2003 Pinjar returns with a loony tuned satirical look to the country’s political and social system.

Zed Plus is a political satire
Komals Reviews
This Prime Minister cannot speak Hindi. No, he is not female and of Italian origin. Played by the very authentic Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Mr. Prime Minister in Chandraprakash Dwiwedi’s , is a bearded, canny, suave and wily patriarch

loony tuned satirical look to the country’s political and social system.'Zed Plus' has the apparent madness of a political satire at heart and is winningly acted by all the actors but somewhere this spoof spoons away in spinning the loop between the heart and mind thus ending up as just a light hearted take on India’s political intake as compared to Shyam Benegal’s ‘ Welcome to Sajjanpur’, ‘ Well
India Glitz
Cut from the same cloth from which films like Well Done Abba and Welcome To Sajjanpur were stitched, Zed Plus warms the cockles of the heart with its simplicity and integrity, ingredients that are fast disappearing from our cinescape
