More trailers! I tell you, Eid is exhausting. Plus there’ve been fireworks on my street the past couple of nights, which is also exhausting. But it’s all worth it, because THANK GOODNESS Zero is looking a little better.
Why make you wait? I’ll start with Zero. The special effects look considerably better, and more importantly, so does Shahrukh’s character. The last one had him looking kind of gross and aggressive. This one has him being sweet and excited.
And maybe a tiny bit of a plot? Something about how it is good luck for celebrities when this particular Little Person chooses to imitate them? Or follow them? Or something?
And now, Loveratri! I love the visuals and I love the song, it feels like an old-fashioned big fun romance. However, either Aayush Sharma has a crippling problem that makes him incapable of moving his face out of a open-mouthed half smile, in which case I am very sorry for him. Or he is a terrible actor who only has one expression to a disturbing degree. Really, I kept feeling like this was the CGI movie and Zero wasn’t, like Aayush only showed up for one day of shooting and they put his floating head with its single expression on top of some stand ins body.
Finally, Vishwaroopam 2! I finally saw 1 a couple of days ago, so now I can watch the trailer. It’s fine, great action scenes, not much plot. And half the plot there is, is just left over bits of the first movie. Hard to judge what the movie will be like from this. Oh, but Waheedaji is there!!!!!! That’s always super exciting. I guess she has unretired herself again. And I think this is the first time she has worked with Kamal Haasan. And maybe the first time she has worked in Tamil? Very exciting and interesting since Tamil is her native language.
