Highway brings unconventional characters and an unconventional story line, told in a picturesque, totally Imtiaz Ali style. From the man who made Socha Na Tha, Jab We Met and Rockstar nothing less could be expected.
The film is at places poetry in motion with absolutely delightful visuals satiating the senses. Rahmanâ€™s music creates magic and together with the stunning visuals of snow-capped mountains and valleys of Himachal and Kashmir, it can widen your eyes with wonder as you struggle to take in all that you see.
Randeep Hooda has always been on my favoritesâ€™ list and I had almost come to detest Alia Bhatt post her performance in Student Of The Year. This film has surprised me with what she is capable of as an artist and creates a feeling that we are yet to see what she can do.
The only complaint I have is regarding the family and social circle of Alia Bhatt who contribute no value to the movie and do such a sad job of acting that even the person who acted as the chaiwallah seems to have done a better job.
We had been planning on watching this movie ever since we saw the trailer and the idea conveyed, that Veera Tripathi (Alia Bhatt) finds freedom in captivity and to say the least, we are not a tad disappointed and left the theatre satisfied.
Iâ€™d suggest you to go and watch this movie, be patient where the movie is slow and just sit back and savour what is on offer; you will not regret the experience.
