Zid (2014) Review


Zid (transl. Obstinance) is a 2014 Bollywood erotic thriller film directed by Vivek Agnihotri and produced by Anubhav Sinha. The film stars Karanvir Sharma, Mannara and Shraddha Das in principal roles.
It received grossly negative reviews from critics.
Rohan "Ronnie" Achrekar (Karanvir Sharma), a crime reporter with a Goa-based newspaper called 'The Daily', is being questioned by his newspaper's editor Karan (Mohan Kapoor) and the area's deputy superintendent of police (Rajeev Saxena). He tells them that with the editor's help, he had rented an apartment in his friend's outhouse located in a remote part of Goa.
The place looks haunted and the owner is a paralyzed, wheelchair-bound, elderly man who is the father of a young girl, Maya (Mannara Chopra). Maya falls in love upon seeing Ronnie, who is recovering from his breakup with ex-girlfriend Priya (Shraddha Das), who moved to London.
Maya phones her sister to reveal her feelings for Ronnie and steals a picture of Ronnie out of his photo-frame. She also happens to spot a picture of herself on his desktop, and this makes her think that he is likewise in love with her.
This is not the case. It was only by chance that Ronnie had randomly snapped the picture during his ferry ride while traveling to the new place, before he had even met her.
Ronnie is not in love with her, but he thinks she is strange and cute, so he plans a date-night at a nightclub. There, he bumps into Nancy (Seerat Kapoor), Priya's step-sister. Maya is upset when Ronnie and Nancy begin dancing together.
