Plot of the movie: NH 10 is an unending and nail biting thriller from Navdeep Singh, the director who gave us the delightful ‘Manorama Six Feet Under'.
The movie revolves around Meera (Anushka Sharma) and Arjun (Neil Bhoopalam), two young professionals from Bangalore working together in Gurgaon. The otherwise bold and independent Meera, gets traumatized after being attacked by a group of hoodlum while returning late from the party.
In order get her out of trauma, Arjun decides to treat her with a luxurious desert holiday, unaware of the big problem that lies ahead of them. As the couple stop on a Highway dhaba for having lunch, they witness some fearless youth picking up a young girl. Arjun tries to oppose them but gets beaten in the return. This makes the duo's holiday turn into a relentless horror story, leading to an unending struggle.
What would drive NH10 to success?
The gritty and jittery style in which the crucial message of ‘violence against women' is picturized is the plus point of the movie.
Director Navdeep Singh has left no stone unturned to make NH10 as cruel, brutal and hard-hitting as the real life incident. There is provocation, fear and tension that builds slowly and disturbs your mind and stays there for long.
Anushka Sharma has portrayed the role of a strong and bold woman and she surprises us in every part with her performance. There are other powerful performances from Neil Booplam and Darshan Kumar that will delight you to the core.
In a film where there is little scope for regular songs or routine dance numbers, the film has not one but six composers with nine songs.
This thriller from the house of Navdeep is highly capable of getting you to the edge of your seat.
Path-barriers for NH10
The movie is releasing with ‘A' certificate owing to the overdose of cuss words, the factor which might become the reason for the family audience to give a ditch to the movie. The movie also lacks in terms of originality. This flick which is Anushka Sharma's first home production is completely inspired by the 2008's Eden Lake and even the poster is copied by 1987's movie Black widow. Moreover, too much violence and real life brutality is something that will keep the fiction loving and soft hearted audience at bay.
India TV's recommendation:
It's perfect time to watch NH10 considering what is happening around us. Everyday we hear of hundreds of crime stories. Such ruffians prevail in our society who has no fear of law and killing some for petty issue isn't a big deal for them.
Post the 2012 gang-rape case, and now when it's recalled again through the controversial BBC documentary, NH10 is a novice attempt to stop such violence against women.
There is an urgent need for men to get involved in bringing an end to the violence against women and criticize it loud and clear every time it takes place until it ends in the end.
Watch it as it speaks against everything that is wrong in our nation.
