A girl abducted finds freedom in bondage. The theme of director Imtiaz Ali’s film Highway, featuring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda, is intriguing to say the least.
A few thrills go to the blood as the thrill of hitting the highway, the thrill of lying back in your seat and watch the landscape pass by. It’s this wanderlust Imtiaz Ali taps into in the first trailer of his next film Highway.
“Jahan se tum mujhe laye ho, main wahan wapis nahin jana chahti, jahan bhi le jaa rahe ho wahan pahuchna bhi nahin chahti, par ye rasta, ye bahut accha hai, main chahti hoom ye rasta kabhi khatm na ho,” Alia Bhatt says at the start of the trailer.
She is a girl who has been abducted by Randeep Hooda and his cronies. But once they hit the highway and she sees town pass after town, the fear in her is gone. She gets a chance to escape, but she doesn’t. She sticks by, and actually begins to enjoy the journey.
Her captors are understandably perplexed. She has discovered her freedom while in bondage.
Bravo Imtiaz Ali for a wonderful theme and a road movie that looks every bit promising.
A special mention of A R Rahman’s stirring musical score in ‘Highway’. The maestro is back in his form, if what you hear in the trailer is to go by.
Presented by Sajid Nadiadwala and directed by Imtiaz Ali, Highway is slated to release on February 21.
