Critic Reviews for Highway

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

  • There's a lot to like in Ali's latest, "Highway," which is a gorgeously assembled, ambitious piece of work, although it doesn't coalesce into a holistically successful film.

  • The film can't sustain a tone, wavering between realism and Bollywood hokum.

  • The action is held together by a star-making performance from Alia Bhatt.

    May 14, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The diverse beauty of rural India is a character in this story. There are long moments of silence, uncomfortable, beautiful and empty, even if filled with song.

  • It's exemplary filmmaking, and the hope is that audiences will take a detour from the confines of commercial Bollywood and embrace this wholly edifying experience. Highway will move you in ways you would have never expected.

  • Watch this one for Bhatt and Hooda. They are at their vulnerable, rugged best. Plus, if you are in the mood to see India in its raw, unpolished state, Highway can be an exhilarating ride.

    Except for Alia's performance, the movie has nothing worthwhile to offer. 1/10.
