I was lucky to get to see the film at the opening day of Cinema German in Jakarta. But, I might say that I’m a bit dissapointed about the movie plot. Eh?

Well, okay the film was unpredictable, but what then? Nothing specific to win my attention at all. The conflict and the solution were so lame as the opening film. I was guessing that Blue Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) was inspired by this film/novel due to the plot which is forward and backward like it’s trying to twist us, but I am totally wrong since there’s no socialite lifestyle in it. It’s drama about what will you do if you have the second chance to get things right? Give up on fate or doing something different.

All my attention went to the nature and how nice the camera took it all. Beside the supporting role acting (Fritzi) which was better than the main role (Nina) -Sorry, But I should be honest. Fritzi was attract me with her superb acting. She deserves to win any award for her role in this film.

Let’s say, the interesting part of the film was when Juliane handles the situations which will lead you to the climax of the film (which was not fresh in my opinion).

Movie Title : HIGHWAY

Stars : Alia Bhatt, Randeep Hooda, Durgesh Kumar, Arjon Maholtra, etc.
Release Date : February, 21st 2014 (INDIA)
Duration : 133 minutes

The film portrays two persons aggrieved with the happenings in their life coming together incidentally and search for freedom and peace in their own way.

The depiction of the slow change in the feelings between the main character (Veera and Mahabir) is smooth and realistic enough for their rather diverse backgrounds.

Actually, I don’t really like the girl performance in few scenes. But, she paid it at the climax scene, where it is crucial.

Good use of the plot to show scenic beauties of the high north. It should also be appreciated for highlighting one of the serious societal problems India is facing for a long time, now.
