What went wrong with Zero?
Here, let me explain
There was no such thing as story in movie, storytelling even worse, SRK Anushka love story was faulty, you can get why they can fall for each other, but the road was bumpy.
What was Katrina doing in the movie? why was she in the movie? Why are we going to Mars? Director lost track of everything he tried to do so badly that he couldn't do anything.
Presentation is the key
The genius idea of showing SRK insulting a handicapped women want enough, they had to show him having chat with her in Toilet, having sfx & then running away, even SRK throwing Shilpa in Baazigar had context & gelled with story, this here was shambles. It didn't helped that Bauua was an asshole by character.
Too much philosophy
You see sometimes exposition shouldn't be done, leaving audience guessing it's good plot, but not so much that they keep guessing what is happening on screen & why are we getting out though this?
One reason why noone could understand what's happening other than story is that director & writers m didn't explained that.
Why did Katrina hired Bauua? Only because she wanted someone to do her work?
Why did Bauua behaved like that in her party?
Why did Katrina behaved like that in her party?
What was the love of Bauua? ZigZag? He loved Anushka enough to have sfx, but not enough to marry, but now he loves her again again because of story to by Katrina? What a slime.
And how is Bauua able to break stars by his mind while Captain Marvel can just move them?
Why did Bauua who left Anushka in second half came back to her after getting beaten & dancing in busy road in mddle of NY?
Why do Bauua had to go to *** Mars & not just win an MMA competition to win back Anushka, i meant it worked for Salman?
All of these could be explained by writer in interviews, philosophically, but they won't show them because they ran out of budget which was spent on Samosas & ran out of common sense.
Finally, it was boring
Yeah, the biggest factor was this, not only the movie made no sense, it made the biggest crime a movie can do, it was boring, i don't understand what was the fuss about it's first half, which according to me was *** boring and senseless as well, artist second half had few genuinely good sequences which can be watched again on you tube and wonder only if they were in a better movie.
So this was wing with Zero, everything, from idea to script (lol) to execution & biggest thing that was wing with Zero was, that it released, bigger than biggest thing that was wing with Zero was that it was released in theatres & even worse was that public had to pay to watch this tripe.
Anushka was correct, you'll come in theatre laughing & will leave theatre crying. Audience did came in theatre in good mood, hoping to get an entertainer, and they did went crying after the movie, not because it was such an emotional gem, but because they were given a mental trauma of 2.5 hours and they paid for that and even then they weren't crying because they had to go through that, they were actually crying due to to happiness that it's finally over. Yeah, that's what went wrong with Zero.
