The Zoya Factor is a 2019 Indian romantic comedy-drama film directed by Abhishek Sharma and starring Sonam Kapoor, Dulquer Salmaan, and Sanjay Kapoor. The film is based on the novel by Anuja Chauhan of the same name and follows the story of Zoya Solanki, an advertising executive who becomes the lucky charm for the Indian cricket team during the 2011 Cricket World Cup.

Zoya Solanki, played by Sonam Kapoor, is a young and ambitious woman who has never had much luck in her personal or professional life. However, her luck changes when she meets the captain of the Indian cricket team, Nikhil Khoda, played by Dulquer Salmaan, who is looking for a new lucky charm for the World Cup. After a chance encounter with Zoya, Khoda is convinced that she is the one who can turn their fortunes around and brings her on as the team's official lucky charm.

As Zoya accompanies the team on their journey to the World Cup, she begins to form a close bond with Khoda and the rest of the team. However, she also becomes the subject of media scrutiny and criticism from fans who believe that she is distracting the team and causing more harm than good.

The Zoya Factor is not just a story about cricket or luck but also a story about newfound love and self-discovery. Sonam Kapoor delivers a strong and charismatic performance as Zoya, a woman who is finally able to find her place and purpose in the world. Dulquer Salmaan is equally impressive as Khoda, a man who is torn between his beliefs and superstitions but is ultimately able to put his faith in Zoya.

The film also boasts a strong supporting cast including Sanjay Kapoor as Zoya's superstitious father and Angad Bedi as Robin, Khoda's best friend and teammate. The chemistry between the actors is evident and adds to the overall charm of the film.

Director Abhishek Sharma creates a visually stunning and engaging film that effectively blends comedy, drama, and romance. The film's entertaining storyline and relatable characters make it a fun and enjoyable watch for audiences of all ages.

However, the film does have its flaws. The pacing at times can feel slow, and some of the comedy can come across as forced or predictable. Additionally, the film's message about the power of luck is at times oversimplified and could have benefitted from a more nuanced exploration.

Overall, The Zoya Factor is a fun and light-hearted film that will leave audiences with a smile on their face. With its engaging storyline, strong performances, and charming characters, it manages to deliver an entertaining and enjoyable cinematic experience that is well worth a watch.

The Zoya Factor is a 2019 romance movie with a runtime of 2 hours and 16 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.4.
