Critic Reviews for Highway

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.

A star-making turn from relative newcomer Alia Bhatt provides the vibrant essence of Imtiaz Ali's bracingly atypical Bollywood road-movie, Highway.

Few movie fans are going to be surprised by the plot here, but Highway's quiet, thoughtful tone will challenge anyone who thinks of Indian cinema solely as loud, splashy melodramas.

Audience Reviews for Highway

In my opinion, Highway is the best Hindi film of 2014 so far. Alia Bhatt is great and so is Randeep Hooda. The story is good, and the music is very good. Although it is slow at times, the emotional scenes between Alia and Randeep brought me back into it.

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

Alia Bhatt's strong performance makes this movie better than it actually is. Alia maybe new to the showbiz, but she proves here that she can compete against the top guns.
