Product Description

Written and directed by Imtiaz Ali Highway (2014) is an Indian drama film. It stars Randeep Hooda and Alia Bhatt as the main characters, playing an odd pair. The film was released worldwide on 21st February 2014 and received positive reviews for its script and the strong social message it aimed to spread. The film is a revisited version of one of the episodes from the Zee TV series titled �Rishtey�, which was also written by Imtiaz Ali.

Veera Tripathi (Alia Bhatt), the daughter of a rich and famous industrialist is to be married in four days. Hoping for a small adventure, she persuades her fianc� to take her for a drive in the dead of the night. The drive however, turns out to be much more than Veera had hoped for. They halt near a petrol pump so Veera can breathe in the freedom of the night, when in a chaos of events, Veera finds herself abducted by a gang of truck drivers. The gang soon finds out the identity of their victim and start panicking. Mahabir Bhati (Randeep Hooda), one of the abductors, disagrees to return her and set on a continuous journey, taking Veera from her home and her realities. Veera soon finds herself comfortable in the company of her abductors, and stranger still, finds her freedom with them. The story, in snippets, gives us the childhood of the two characters and we soon realize they are both victims of trauma. They begin developing a strong emotional tie and exchange their deepest secrets. Imtiaz Ali explores the naked truth of two different kinds of Indian societies, which although poles apart, are equally appalling. Veera cannot fix her childhood, but Mahabir gives her a purpose and meaning to her life. Highway is an unusual tale about freedom and love.

  1.  Definitely worth the trip! 9 July, 2014 On
    I do like Bollywood movies and I desperately want to fall in love with some, to the point it might get stuck in my head for years to come. Very few movies has had the ability to let that happen though, assured I’d be telling my kids about Sholay one day but the same couldn’t be said about the much recent movies. There are of course exceptions that might just end up on the list, I adore Dev D for example and The Lunchbox, Kahaani, Gangs Of Wasseypur and a dozen more could be contenders as well.

    I always found the Imtiaz Ali’s movies amusing and entertaining. An undoubtedly talented director, Imtiaz, does have showmanship but not without flaws, his movies nonetheless are honed to at least entertain you for its duration. From Socha Na Tha till Love Aaj Kal, I was surprisingly left content. Rockstar, due to reasons withheld, I gave a deliberate miss. Having seen the previews of Highway I was mildly intrigued and despite its mixed reviews I couldn’t help myself give it a chance. And I am glad I did.

    Veera Tripathi, the daughter of a wealthy businessman from Delhi is taken hostage by some criminals lead by Mahabir Bhati. And on their run the girl seemingly gets a heavy bout of Stockholm Syndrome only later to be found that its something more. She’s on the run from her own lifestyle and some tragedies she’d suffered as a kid. And meanwhile all that, Mahabir is dragged in hopes of having a normal life. The movie is piled with many warm, heartfelt scenes and the right kind of immersion might even pull the right strings of emotions in you.

    Alia Bhatt’s shows promise to be one of the best contemporary actresses. Of course it only shows that in the right hands even the most cheesiest, fussy of actors perform well enough to be admired. I wouldn’t say she was flawless though, there were many scenes where I felt her acting showed shades of freshmanhood, and its something that can be comfortably overlooked considering she displayed an immaculate level of acting. Randeep Hooda aint far off behind and he was just as charming as he was grouchy. I felt he did an amazing job playing the disturbed Bhati who gets caught up amidst all the mess and you help but sympathize with this gentle giant. I was particularly fond of this scene where Bhati couldn’t help himself break into tears seeing Veera making a home, preparing food and it was interesting to see him caught between a constant conflict with his deplorable life and a life that could be.

    Adorned with and in perfectly sync with the beautiful visuals is A R Rahman’s score and music and its nothing short of spellbinding. While I wasnt impressed much with his recent compositions, Highway‘s music struck a perfect chord this time. Couple that with the sheer gorgeous visuals, courtesy of Anil Mehta’s adept cinematography Highway becomes an absolute pleasure to get soaked in.

    Highway, if it wasn’t obvious from its title, is essentially a well made road movie. Off to a slow, and edging close to boring, start, Highway manages to take you on a satisfying ride thanks to a charming Alia Bhatt and gruffly amazing Randeep Hooda. My few grumbles would be with the deficient time allotted for character development and also what I felt about Veera’s childhood tragedy. It was indeed strong and the sections were well handled well but I felt it to be a gimmick to elicit feelings. There aint much to root for except for the leads’ performances, the cinematography and its score. Take that away and it might just feel like an entirely predictable and bland road movie but Imtiaz Ali has crafted it in a way that you often forget that it is indeed a road movie. Had I to concise Highway in one word, I’d say its ‘beautiful’ and I was content with it but still not something extraordinaire that it’d end up on my ‘Stuck in my Head’ list.

  2.  Highway is an inward journey you must embark upon 8 June, 2014 On
    When was the last time you were so engrossed in a movie that it took hours to grapple with the real world? The movie, ‘Highway’ is a 133-minute meditation session which will leave you in a zen-like stupor, as if someone just woke you up from a blissful dream you’d wish had never ended.

    Circa 1991, the posters of ‘Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin’, a road movie starring Pooja Bhatt and Aamir Khan proclaimed: A journey into a woman’s heart. Year 2014, the same line is a befitting description for ‘Highway’, a road movie starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda (Both in their career-best performance).

    To begin with, ‘Highway’ isn’t a ‘movie’, it’s a ‘journey’, isn’t an ‘escape’ but ‘retreat’, isn’t ‘experience’ but ‘meditation’. The film is about a girl being kidnapped by four unruly men and taken from Delhi to Rajasthan, to Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Kashmir.

    Far from such itinerary-like description, ‘Highway’ is about the journey than the destinations highlighted in the promos. Director Imtiaz Ali chooses to keep the script aligned with this core philosophy of life being about journey rather than destination. In an interview, Imtiaz Ali said that all he had was a basic storyline and the entire script was ready after the shoot was over. This random approach lends a raw tone to this film, where a line inscribed on the truck does the talking instead of the characters mouthing smart one-liners.

    Any director in his place would have been tempted to brief his cinematographer to do a National-Geographic-Channel way of capturing the destinations Veera Tripathi (Alia Bhatt) and Mahabir Bhati (Randeep Hooda) travel to. Had it been so, ‘Highway’ would have ended up being a video promo of some Tours & Travel Company. Thankfully, we’re spared of such inanities, and also the melodrama usually doled out in a film with a strong social message.

    ‘Music is the silence between the notes’ – this quote defines the background score of ‘Highway’ composed by maestro AR Rahman. Silences were never so eloquent in a film and music was never so silent.

    Cinematographer Anil Mehta keeps things surprisingly simple and refreshingly restrained, which means you won’t find those fancy filters, fish-eye shots, colour-corrected landscapes and sunlight on snow-capped mountains. The highways appear the way we see or our handycam captures them.

    Each moment of this journey is real, except for the fact that the transition of Alia Bhatt’s character from a scared-to-death rich girl to a hopelessly-in-love woman is way too abrupt. But once you buy the idea of a prey falling in love with the hunter, you’re in for a great time.

    Nevertheless, the film’s message lingers on your mind and makes you ponder over unanswered questions. Lines like ‘Bandook se do log marte hain, ek jise goli lagti hai aur doosra jo goli chalaata hain’ refuse to leave you hours after leaving the auditorium. To sum it up, ‘Highway’ is a journey that takes you to undiscovered destinations within. Go, explore.

  3.  The journey not to be remembered 9 June, 2014 On
    Highway, a Randeep Hooda starrer has everything but a solid script.

    Imitiaz Ali directorial venture dissapoints. The first half is watchable but the second half does not make any impact. We can feel the scenes are forced. A simple explanation of the movie- girl is kidnapped before her marriage. Amazingly she falls in love with the kidnapper. The journey is painful but the soothing music of AR Rahman stands out.

    Performances are good, especially Alia Bhatt. Visuals and music are the key factors that takes the film along. So not a movie we expected from Imtiaz.
