The movie Zoya Factor is based on the book of the same name. Zoya aka Sonam Kapoor is the lucky charm of the Indian cricket team. This is the belief that Zoya’s father and brother have about her as she was born on the day that Indian cricket team won the World Cup. Zoya’s charm helps her brother and father win a lot of street cricket matches.

However, in real life, Zoya too needs a lucky charm in her life. She works as an advertising professional and she too is looking for some kind of miracle all the time to help her keep the job. Even her love life is not going so great as her doctor boyfriend has just dumped her.

Her breakthrough moment comes when she gets to shoot an ad film with the Indian Cricket team. Following which India goes on to play a match in the world cup. Despite putting up a bad show, Indian manages to clinch a victory. This makes the team believe Zoya to be their lucky mascot. However, the team Nikhil Khoda (Dulquer Salmaan) does not believe that Zoya had anything do with the team’s win. This is where the story takes an interesting turn. Will we get to see Zoya with the cricket team more often? Will she and Nikhil get along? Will India be able to win the world cup? For answers to this question, you will have to watch The Zoya Factor.

Sonam Kapoor’s acting in the movie is inconsistent. She is an exception in some scenes but that is about it. Dulquer Salmaan was amazing in Caravan and he manages to leave the audience spellbound with his performance in this movie as well. In addition to this, he looks oh-so-handsome in Indian team’s jersey. The other supporting cast doesn’t have much to do in the film but most of them have managed to do a decent job. In the movie, there are many actors that will remind you of well-known cricketers such as Sachin Tendulkar and Shikhar Dhawan.  

What works for the film is its climax, performance of Dulquer Salmaan and the cinematography. What we dint not like were the storyline and the direction. The first half of the movie is boring and one needs to make an effort to stay interested.
