ZID - Dont do any 'Zid' to watch this. (Review By Bobby Sing)
30 Nov, 2014 | Movie Reviews / 2014 Releases / Inspired Movies (Alphabetical) / Y-Z

There are certain films that need to be released despite being a bad product, just to get rid of them by their makers as they themselves clearly know about the mess but can do nothing about it quite helplessly. ZID is another of those ill-fated projects which though had a fairly interesting plot of becoming an engaging thriller but turns out to be so amateurishly presented and enacted film that one really feels annoyed thinking about the fact that it was supposedly the launch vehicle of another good looking girl from the Chopra family with an inspired foreign angle too.
Loosely adapted from a German film, UNTER NACHBARN/THE GOOD NEIGHBOUR (2011) and re-scripted again with typical Bollywood kind of insertions, it’s a perfect case wherein a fine plot gets ruined by the re-writers focusing more on erotica than the mystery element.
ZID is the debut film of Mannara (earlier known with a different name), who is another cousin of Priyanka Chopra post Parineeti making her own reputed place in the industry. And it is said that the movie was approved by Priyanka only to go ahead. God knows what she saw in the project/script to recommend!
Reportedly director Vivek Agnihotri prepared Mannara for her strange/difficult kind of role, completed more than half of the film and then walked away due to some undisclosed differences, which rightly explains its directionless proceedings post intermission like a lost wandering child.
The film has more than 5-6 songs and a quite deliberate and at your face kind of skin show, probably added later to make it commercially viable catering a particular section of viewers in the smaller centers. However, surprisingly the songs are not that bad in comparison to many other big films but fail to make an impact along with an average cinematography and background score due to all mediocre & uninteresting sequences on the screen generating no interest whatsoever.
In short, if you wish to learn how acting can be interpreted as screaming, emoting weirdly, showing cleavages, kissing wildly and more, then you should ideally see ZID, which is an excellent example of how even a suspense murder mystery can turn out to be so boring and irritating watch at times. Having a pretty confused script, strangely adapted from a foreign film with fine ratings, it simply tests the patience of the viewers and is strongly not recommended, particularly to the fans of this exciting genre. You would not be able to bear it for more than two hours.
Rating : 1 / 5 (including an additional 0.5 just giving it a benefit of doubt of being a disputed project.)
