      Danny Bowes RogerEbert.com 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. Rated: 2.5/4 Feb 21, 2014 Full Review Rachel Saltz New York Times The film can't sustain a tone, wavering between realism and Bollywood hokum. Feb 20, 2014 Full Review Kaleem Aftab The National (UAE) The action is held together by a star-making performance from Alia Bhatt. Rated: 4/5 May 14, 2018 Full Review Sapna Samant Flicks (AU, NZ, UK) 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. Rated: 4/5 Oct 31, 2017 Full Review Priya Joshi Digital Spy 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. Rated: 4/5 Oct 30, 2017 Full Review Manjusha Radhakrishnan Gulf News (UAE) 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. Aug 31, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews

      Alkesh B One of best movies and a must watch across all generations Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Advaith R A very good take on not only Stockholm Syndrome, but many other human emotions. The bgm by AR Rahman was simply phenomenal. The performances by our leads, Alia and Randeep were quite good. Overall a very good watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/21/22 Full Review Audience Member Probably Imtiaz Ali's least Imtiaz Ali film, which is a good thing. Highway tells a story that hasn't been told before in Indian cinema, and tells it well. Randeep Hooda and Alia Bhatt are excellent. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member The best film I have seen in ages. Excellent acting and stunning cinematography. The freedom of self-expression that Veera experiences is believable, as is the tortured resignation of Mahabir, before he allows himself to be transformed. I found it very moving. I encourage Westerners to watch this. The dialogue is minimal so the subtitles are easy to follow. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review sandeep p A journey with a twist and more. From the deep and highly lands of beautiful india to exemplary character arcs, this movie delivers not only on criminal mastermind but on dreams of freedom. A must see Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A purposeful movie which looks into the pathos and ethos of living a human life.
