Almost everything about Zid can be best described as botched...
The performances are forgettable and flaws scream out loud. The climax tries to shock, but leaves you shaken and wondering - whose zid was this anyway? As the case comes to a painful close, a guy sitting next to me exasperatingly said, "It's time for a standing ovation." I rest my case.
Take an aspirin before walking into this one. Twists and cuckoo-ness apart, it's curiously not that much of a suspense story. You kinda figure that out in the first half itself.
Zid is not cringe worthy, just plain boring. Selling itself in the garb of a few explicit shots, the film’s fabric did not back itself in a solid enough story. It doesn’t have anything exemplary about it, not its acting, story or the chemistry between its lead pair. The worst thing about Zid was its climax that was downright silly. It’s almost like a bunch of intelligent people thought of doing a crash course in making a silly film and Zid was made.
ZID is a very average thriller which has no stellar performances or a meaningful storyline.
The lone star in the rating is thanks to this sizzler who I am sure we will see a lot of.
Possible ‘Hate Story’ intent but in effect not coming close even to that low ask. There’s in fact a little too much promise in the marketing and precious little in deliverance!
On the whole, Zid lacks the excitement of a suspense thriller. With the songs, human anatomy exposure and the twist in the climax being its only trump cards, its chances at the box-office appear limited, given its dull start.
Zid is one of those films that fall into my 'yawn-inducing' list. Not getting enough sleep? This could be your medicine without side-effects.
The film has a bad story, some erotic scenes, bad acting performance. In short, there is hardly anything good about the film. Don’t waste you hard earned money on this unintentionally funny film.
Zid is a psychotic thriller that will surprise you with its gripping plot and keep you hooked till the very end. Moreover, the convincing roles and a high sensuality quotient make the film entertaining and worth a watch.
...the writing just doesn't engage you like a thriller should. It tries the known hooks that horror movies usually opt for when they know they can't keep you involved - cleavage and sex. Tells you how confident the makers were in the story they had to tell, which incidentally they try to boast about - their narrative capabilities. Unfortunately, it shows a lack thereof.
With songs, cinematography and the cast doing good work, only negative is the same old story about love and obsession which gives a headache. Watch Zid only if you are too bored in life...
Audience Reviews for Zid
I must say movie has a very good story line with an ultimate climax if you are free this weekend and want some spice and thriller then go for it. It has everything in it songs are truly amazing and best suited in situation. A little bit direction perfection is required which we can neglect also but at the end its truly awesome.
