While the t-town is busy spangling praises for heroes, Anushka strikes again with a different avatar in Size Zero. Read the review to know if the lady Superstar continued her success streak.
Size Zero is all about a fat girl, Soundarya (Anushka)
and the kind of oddness she faces in the society while her parents
struggles to get her a perfect match. The film makes it a strong
point to tell us that sizes and shapes have nothing to do with a
girl's likes and desires. It showcases the day-to-day insults an
obese girl faces in a society that stereotypes 'fat'. Can her
appearance determine her dreams? What is it Soundarya realizes in
the run to get fit, forms the story.
Anushka strikes the chord yet again. She has proved once more
that she can make you love her in any damn avatar. The effort she
has put in to get into the shoes of Soundarya and understand her,
indeed reflected on the screen as she has perfectly emoted the
character. The inner turmoil, the character goes through was put
out skilfully by the actress, keeping the innocence intact. Arya,
Sonal Chauhan, Prakash Raj and Urvashi supported the story
Technical Aspects & Analysis:
Art department of the film deserves a huge shout out as they are
largely successful in setting up the mood of the film. Its a lot of
food on the screen and you actually end up feeling heavily stuffed
after awhile. The colors used reflects how girly Soundarya is.
However, Director Prakash Kovelamudi failed to make it an engaging
film since it lacks the pace and a couple of songs were forcefully
placed, which further spoiled the tempo of the film. Though the
director opted an interesting line, he dragged it down to the ends
bring many boring moments. Cinematography, music and production
values were commendable.
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. READ MORE IN THE SLIDES
Size Zero also portrays a beautiful relation between a mother
and a daughter. Urvashi played the role of Anushka's mother in the
Hansika, Rana, Bobby Simha, Tamannaah, Adivi Sesh, Nagarjuna
make their special appearances in a song.
Soundarya falls in love with Abhi at the first sight but he do
not posses any feelings for her. A scene where he makes a
documentary on local hygiene in Hyderabad with serial actors was
Sonal Chauhan's entrance develops the story as Sweety starts
feeling insecure and frustrated with her presence.
Prakash Raj plays the role of 'Size Zero' gym instructor, who
promises to make Sweety from fat to fit. But soon Sweety figures
out the facts of his programme.
Size Zero makes it a point that happy girls are the beautiful
girls and its not about the sizes and shapes.
Music by Keeravani was soulful and especially Mellaga Mellaga
song was used well to establish Sweety's character.
