As a director, This is the second film for Prakash Rao. He chooses an another experimental story, which is written by his wife Kanika Dillon.The story is not new to the south audience. We have come across this similar plots in out telugu cinema. Prakash has tried to generate a few laughs by roping in comedian, Brahmanandam but he didn’t get succeed. There are a few unnecessary scenes in the first half, which ruin the mood of audience. In the latter half He roped in top celebrities like Nagarjuna, Vikram, Hansika, Tammaah and other celebrities to create a vibe among audience. He pulled it off well. Talented technicians, cinematographer Nirav shah and musician Keeravani are big assets to the film. Prawin pudi should have been chopped off lagging scenes.
Give any role to Anushka, she has been nailing it from ages. Be it Arundhanthi, Rudramadevi, Devasena and Varna. She puts on lot of weight for Size Zero, She even aced this role with her incredible acting skills. Arya has supported very well. Urvashi has emoted mixed emotions so fabulous as henpecked mother. Versatile actor, Prakash Raj nailed the antagonist role. Sonal chauhan sizzles the screen. Nagarjuna, Adivi shesh, Lakshmi manchu,Tamannah, Vikram and other celebrities done cameo appearances.
Size Zero should have been a better Movie If it was helmed by the director properly, However, Brilliant Work by the Cast. You can this movie once. I will go with three out of five stars.
