Story

Zoya Singh Solanki (Sonam Kapoor) is an advertising executive and she is not happy with the bad luck that’s around her every time. Things take a complete U-turn when she meets Indian cricket captain Nikhil Khoda (Dulquer Salmaan) and the good luck factor she is missing comes back to her. The couple falls in love, everything looks great but things breakup between them when Zoya becomes the lucky charm for the Indian cricket team to win 2011 world cup. Did India win the world cup with Zoya lucky? How she becomes a lucky charm? What happened to the love story of Nikhil Khoda and Zoya? Forms the rest of the story.

Performances

Sonam Kapoor is given another tailor-made role in the form of Zoya Singh Solanki and she completely nails it down with her acting. Her comic timing is improving with every film and even in Zoya Factor we can see her funny side providing entertainment. She has shouldered the entire film on her doing her best but she has the option to share the workload that did not happen because of the script.

Dulquer Salmaan is one of the highlights of this movie. His Hindi sounded perfect, his performance as a cricket appears real and he also puts all the emotions right into the character showcasing his worth as an actor. His chemistry with Sonam Kapoor looks magical and real on the big screen.  

Sanjay Kapoor role as father to Sonam is short yet cute. Angad Bedi has done a good job for his role. Sikander Kher as an annoying brother of Zoya has done an ok ok work in the movie. The guest role by Anil Kapoor is hilarious and especially scenes between him and Sonam Kapoor are laugh a ride.
