Verdict :
Of the uncanny bond between the oppressor and the oppressed
A city girl - young, full of life - is on the highway at night with her fianc. They are about to get married in four days. Suddenly, her life is swung away from the brocade and jewellery of marriage to the harsh brutality of abduction. Her life will never be the same again. The same night, the gang is in panic. The girl is a big industrialist's daughter. His links in the corridors of power make ransom out of the question. They are doomed.

But the leader of this group is adamant. For him sending her back is not an option. He will do whatever it takes to see this through. But as the days pass by, the scenery changes, the light changes, the sun sets and rises and the air changes, she 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. She does not want to go back but she also doesn't want to reach where he is taking her. She wishes this journey to never end.

Maybe the Highway will not really change her. maybe this feeling is just a passing phase. Maybe not.

Film is quite promising. Alia Bhatt done a brilliant acting and Imtiaz Ali done good justice with the story telling, music is perfect. Out and out blockbuster. Everyone should watch this movie and experience 2 hours of journey on a cinematic highway.

The film is a depiction of connection of starkly different people having completely different background in which they come close and bring the passion of love.Love epitomizes any barrier and cannot be bracketed to just any stereotype.The gay abandon and the zeal to move on in life without any halt is all the film signifies.The world of rules and dictums always bring curtains to the freedom which all aspires to possess.The film has scenes which melts your heart and you feel that tranquility is the sound which we all want to hear. The film has wonderful depiction of acting by both by Randeep Hooda and Alia Bhatt.The art of communicating through body language can be learnt from MAHABIR and the way he carries the film with just his face showing emotions and anger really is worth and showcases the way in which Bollygwood has typecasted people and has not tapped the potential of such potent performers. Alia Bhatt is a breeze of fresh air and shows that she is the next girl of Bollywood who has the genes and the zen to step ahead of all the chopras and the padukones.The film is a must watch for all Imtiaz Ali fans of Jab We Met and Rockstar and how his quirky love stories creates the feeling of longing and wistfulness.The film again shows that India has such a huge diversity of language and locales and why Bollywood always fails to showcase the wondrous land of India by only projecting the swiss alps.The film has some wonderful apt songs of A.R.Rahman which just gives a fabulous feeling of HIGHWAY in your pulse.All in all a must watch for a real movie buff.

Superb flick. Typical Imtiaz Ali movie. Shades of Rockstar can be felt here n there. Alia... what can I say about her. She is a wonderful talent and super cute with her acting ability. After her first movie I almost thought she is no more than a barbie doll, but looking at her in this movie, I feel like giving myself a tight slap. She is definately gonna go a long way, given how young she is. Making all the right moves, considering her next is based on Chetan Bhagat novel. Randeep Hooda as always a flawless actor, gives 100 pc to each and every role he is given.The movie in a sense makes your travel along with the protagonists. You feel a breeze of fresh air flowing through as you watch the amazing scenery of Northern India. The plot seems to be quite an ordinary one, but direction and the way the lead actors have pulled it off is breathtaking.AR Rahmans music is always a high point, including this one.In all, a wonderful script, flawless direction, superb chemistry between the lead two and lastly, Alia at her innocent best. Cant take my eyes off her. After this movie, I am a big fan of her and can proudly say that she has indeed proven me wrong after what I thought of her after her first movie.

It is a very different and refreshing movie. Little bit of past story of Randeep could have been added to have a balance between both actors.

After a hiatus of 8 years, director Krishan returns with a marginally predictable Nedunchalai. A heartless ruffian who smuggles for a livelihood, the hero who turns into a savior for the heroine, a criminal cop who lusts for the heroine, the heroine who comes into the hero’s life and transforms him overnight. We have seen ...

Highwayseems like the befitting follow-up for writer-director, Imtiaz Ali, after his previous film Rockstar. If Rockstar dealt with the troubled life of Janardhan Jakad, Highway deals with the troubled life of two people, who together comprise the soul of this road romance (to say the least).Alia Bhatt plays Veera, a rich girl who eventually gets ...
