Movie Review: Zed Plus – This One Needs A Standing Ovation

zed plus-01Zed Plus, directed by Doctor Chandraprakash Dwivedi that stars Adil Hussain and Mona Singh is a film that should be seen by all moviegoers.

Director Chandraprakash Diwvedi creates a scenario that is laced with socio-political reality.

Zed Plus starts with the Prime Minister (Kulbhushan Kharbanda), in a problem, as the government is facing the danger of falling due to a scam report (hints at Coal gate scam).

The Prime Minister who struggles to speak in Hindi gets an advice to visit the “Peepal Wale Peer Ki Dargah” in Fatehpur, Rajasthan. Hoping things will go well after bowing to the holy dargah the Prime Minister Convoy heads towards Fathehpur.

Enroute to the dargah, the Prime Minister meets a common man Aslam Puncturewala (Adil Hussain) who earns is livelihood by repairing tyres. Aslam gets lucky when he is offered Zed security.

Now the common man Aslam is no longer common and how this tight security makes life bitter and sweet for Aslam, his family, his neighbours, Fathehpur and the political situation in the state.

Now this forms the basic crux of Zed Plus.

Co-written by Director Chandraprakash Diwvedi and Ram Kumar Singh, Zed Plus is fun and has loads of highs and very few lows. The light hearted moments in the film are the highlights of the narrative and must be applauded. The basic idea of a common man suddenly enjoying Zed Plus security is a masterstroke.

The dialogues are catchy commenting on the political scenario. The performances are first rate where Adil Hussain shines brightly throughout.

Mona Singh as Adil’s wife is superb. Mukesh Tiwari is excellent as Adil Hussian friend turned foe. Sanjay Mishra excels. Ekavali Khanna as Adil’s love interest is quite good. K.K. Raina does a fine job while Kulbhushan Kharbanda is brilliant.

What’s sad is that fact neither such films get a huge pre-release buzz nor large number of screens. They release and even before one can starts to talk about them they are gone.

Hats off to team Zed Plus for putting up this one.
