Storyline

A city girl - young, full of life - is on the highway at night with her fiancé. Suddenly, her life is swung away from the brocade and jewelry of marriage to the harsh brutality of abduction. Her life will never be the same again. The gang is in a panic; the girl is a big industrialist's daughter, his links in the corridors of power make ransom out of the question. But for the leader of this group sending her back is not an option. As the days pass by, the scenery changes, the girl feels that she has changed as well. Gradually, a strange bond begins to develop between the victim and the oppressor. It is in this captivity that she, for the first time, feels free. Written by Vikram Nayak

Worth A Watch
20 February 2014 | by (Ghaziabad) – See all my reviews

Highway (Hindi): Beautiful visuals, Beautiful tunes and Beautiful moments with a tinge of Art house cinema. But Hey! based on a story kept in the heart of director Imtiaz Ali's for years, this drive might give you a disappointment as it loses its track in the second half especially due to its screenplay which lacks its destination and the director's implication of his own stricter fantasy world within the screen constraints (like in European cinema) , might give you a shocker. Having shades of "Stockholm Syndrome" and even his own previous blockbusters like "Rockstar" in the beginning and "Jab We Met" between the course of the film , the self-discovery of a woman though has been shown well in the film, as part of her character development in the screenplay. Then the technical part, especially the sound design by Resul Pookutty is great, then the cinematography by Anil Mehta revisits his "Lagaan" brilliance. The music score by A.R.Rahman is undoubtedly great and his score compliments the film's narrative. In the performances, Durgesh Kumar provides a great support in the journey. Randeep Hooda somewhere is good and somewhere overdone. But Alia Bhatt emerges out as the real winner as she gives a terrific performance, making it a best of this year by a actress in Hindi film after Parineeti Chopra in "HTP". The film has some good moments along with some crackling dialogues enough to make you smile for some extra minutes. Overall, the film might have not appeal much to the general mass audience, but for a good cinematic experience, the film deserves a Dekko. My rating would be: 3.5/5.
