Do you know what a staycation is? It’s when instead of going out of town, you stay at home for a vacation. NH10, directed by Navdeep Singh and co-produced by Anushka Sharma, is the ultimate ad for a staycation. After watching this film, you will lock yourself indoors. And if you happen to live in Gurgaon, it’s likely that you will summon the courage to step out of the house anytime soon.
Because as NH10 tells it, somewhere along the borders of Gurgaon, India ends and hell begins. Or as a character so memorably puts it: Gurgaon mein jahan akhri mall khatam hota hain na, wahin yeh democracy aur constitution bhi khatam ho jata hai. This is a world in which feral men hunt in packs. Honor killings are so much a part of the social fabric that the police actively collaborate in them.
