MOVIE REVIEW:HIGHWAY...ALIA/RANDEEP

HIGHWAY......A LOOK INTO THE JOURNEY...
BY:SUMITA LELE BHAGWAT




I am at a loss for words. This is a movie which can rip your guts or set you free , but I don't think those are the right words to write a review.
Lets start at the beginning . Its the story of a bubbly rich ( and abused) kid who's about to get married. One night of escapism becomes the catalyst for a metamorphosis. She gets kidnapped by a young man who has enough baggage of his own. What happens after that is a three way story ; the first is the actual storyline, the second ( and more captivating) is the emotional rollercoaster that Alia Bhat portrays , and the third is the age of reckoning that hunk of a Randeep Hooda captures through his histrionics.
Powerful performances , bewitching rural locales , and a taut edit have kept the movie brisk and tense. But what really haunts is the story and the music. Rahman is the unbeatable master and Imtiaz Ali knows what it takes to make a movie that leaves you thinking about the highway that your own life is.
Having said all this , I don't think too many people will like the movie. Its artsy and non mainstream , both not hallmarks of commercial success. It hits hard at a male dominated society and the great divide between the classes and the masses. It addresses domestic atrocities that still exist in every other household of India be it rich or poor . It makes you cringe and it makes you liberated at the same time. It would have been a great coming of age film if it hadn't been for the grim truth it portrays.

A fine movie that will win national awards and much likely nothing else. Watch it if you dare.
