HIGHWAY – Magical Road Movie (Not a review but what i felt)

It was a late night cold day i sat up and switched on the laptop…All are asleep and what i need that day was my own moments…I miss my home…mom…movies…friends…books…gupshups!!! I started watching…

Highway Posters feat Alia Bhatt, Randeep Hooda

Gone through so many reviews and status updates about the movie in blogs and Facebook made me think that this gonna be a dragging one… (even Rajeev Masand said so)…but i could’nt imagine a boring piece from Imtiaz Ali…

Starting of the movie made me the same thought i had read in reviews…this may be dragging…a girl got kidnapped late night by some rascals in a petrol pump in front of her fiance on the day before her wedding…and the way the head of the kidnappers behaves to her is heart aching…Finding out that she is the daughter of a well known entrepreneur the kidnapped team got confused and they split…the thread goes fast till then…there starts the journey of Veera, the girl’s and Mahabir, the kidnapper’s journey…

Highway…for me is a simple movie…not much complicated…a girl who found freedom in the hands of the man she kidnapped…its quite natural that they starts loving each other…Imtiaz did it in the best way and it is appreciable that they are not kissing on the next moment she find comfortable with him…(a Bollywood movie without a kissing scene is rare now a days…) For those who want a masala movie i don’t prefer Highway..because this is only a perfect road movie which made me kept watching watching and watching…i really wished the movie not to end..the cinematographer and the camera man did a wonderful job by taking us visually through Delhi, Punjab, Rajasthan, Himachal and Kashmir…Moments seems to be precious and dialogues are rare but executed dialogues are fantastic and worth thinking….

This movie is not a single adventure by Imtiaz…Everything in this movie is simply awesome…A.R.Rahman’s music is the one thing which makes this movie non-boring in the situations where it have to be bored…Superb acting by the cast..Alia Bhatt as Veera seems to be a matured actor than a college girl (totally out of Shanaya look) …The way she changes from smile to broken tears in a scene is just worth to show her talent…Mahabir is well played by Randeep Hooda…over emotions on grief…love and sadness…he acted pretty…The lyrical magic by Irshad Kamil as we heard before in Rockstar is once again seen in this movie…For me Highway is pretty magical which makes me think of the movie and music long after watching the movie…The Veera who ends up on a normal life on a hilltop house as she had dreamt and thinking about her good times with Mahabir…the girl who cries loudly sitting on a road side for Mahabir who wont come back…those scenes will always rest in my mind…

For those who are reading this…this is a must watch piece…its about freedom…life…and satisfaction…
