Critics Review


Highway is a Journey into India�s Heartland

�Highway� is riddled with ironies, not necessarily intentional. Veera falls in love with Mahabir�s angst-laden past, but is aware she has no future ahead with him. So the tragic ending, when it comes, is no surprise. A responsible director can�t be accused of glorifying a life of crime. Hence in the...(more)

Highway is not a sunny, funny road-trip

Wealthy Veera is kidnapped by brutish Mahavir. Is she on a highway leading to hell - or away? It is Imtiaz Ali's starkest, darkest work yet. Rich Veera (Bhatt) steps away from her Monsoon Wedding-style shaadi preparations (a handheld camera capturing gold, ghaghras and a girl going, "Bhaiyya, flavv...(more)

Highway makes for the kind of cinema we need, perhaps not something we entirely deserve.

Highway is Imtiaz Ali's fifth film and, I suspect, his first film too.

Highway will be a special experience for you, especially if you like road movies.

The hero (even though he appears in antagonist attire), portrayed on screen by Randeep Hooda, hates rich guys and the girl he kidnaps is the daughter of an insanely rich businessman who can go to any levels to get his daughter back. The protag...(more)

Highway dishes out a trip that is definitely worth the price of the ticket.

Writer-director Imtiaz Ali has hit a road less taken. The result is a stylish two-hander that is defiantly unconventional, if not entirely satisfying. Shot on stunning locations spread from Delhi all the way up to the slopes of Himachal Pradesh and Kashmir, via the plains of Rajasthan and Punjab,...(more)

HIGHWAY is a triumph for Alia Bhatt, who delivers a marvelous performance

Who would've ever thought that Imtiaz Ali would opt for an offbeat pairing in HIGHWAY [Randeep Hooda, Alia Bhatt], after casting perfectly-matched couples in JAB WE MET [Shahid, Kareena], LOVE AAJ KAL [Saif, Deepika] and ROCKSTAR [Ranbir, Nargis Fakhri]? But Imtiaz is known to think differently, he ...(more)
