Movie Review

Rating :

Verdict : A documentary on honour killings in Haryana is much better than watching NH 10.

Anushka Sharma has turned a producer with ‘NH 10’ and she has broken a stereotype by becoming a producer so early in her career. And she chose a non-masala film with a relatively unpopular actor as her hero. Will all these gambles pay off with ‘NH 10’? Read on.
 
Story:-

An urban city husband-wife (Anushka Sharma and Neil Bhoopalam) are at a good position in their corporate career. One night during a trip in the city, some crooks smash the window of their swanky car. This prompts them to use Neil’s political connections to get hold of a revolver. Later, they set out on a road trip through NH 10 and get stuck in a tricky situation in the hub of honour killings, Haryana. They are witness to an incident where a sister is being dragged and beaten by a brother Darshan Kumar to protect the family honour. Neil gets a slap on his face by Darshan during this mess and this hurts Neil’s ego. He wants to avenge the humiliation at every cost. He follows the gang and actually witnesses a brutal live honour killing in front of his eyes and he gets scared. Neil and Anushka think of fleeing and in that confusion, Darshan’s mentally ill brother gets accidently killed. Seeing Arjun and Meera, the goons decide to kill both of them as well. While Arjun is injured, Meera is being chased across the higway and village.Does the couple manage to come out alive of this situation? Forms rest of the story.
 
Positive points:-
 
NH10 is a need of the hour. Picking up a concept of Honour Killings that still exists right outside the city limits, director Navdeep Singh very intelligently deals with the an important issue and the sickening and mindless patriarchy that leads to such brutal instances. Half of his job has been done on the scripting stage itself. NH10 in its true sense is an edge of the seat thriller. The writing is taut and highly gripping. The script is blood-filled and gut wrenching and at every point it is a mirror to our society which is partly urban and partly barbaric.Lets come to the performances. Being her first production attemp, Anushka Sharma gives it her best shot to prove her worth. She breaks the damsel in distress myth and she says it out loud why we don’t need a hero for a film or why an actress can’t be the hero.The intense vulnerability and conviction in her character takes the movie to another level. Whether its the gruesome blood-shed scenes or the emotional parts, Anushka goes all out to give her best. Neil Bhoopalam provides decent enough support. Darshan Kumaar, who was earlier seen playing an innocent man in Mary Kom, shows an excellent transformation as the ruthless Satbir in this one. Deepti Naval can be seen in a cameo and does manage to leave her impact.

Negative points:-

There is too much of violence and gory scenes throughout the film. The part where Arjun decides to chase the goons even after being accompanied by his wife and risking both their lives is somewhat unbelievable. Compare to first part the second part is dragging. 
 
Technical points:-

The film doesn’t have any special songs and they are running in the background, which are good. The background score is one of the standout points of the film. The cinematography is good especially the scenes in the night and the violent scenes. The climax however could have been a lot better. The duration of the film is enough for the viewers to engage in the movie and not get bored either.

Overall, NH10 deals with a strong message and is showcad in quite a realistic way. Watch it for girl power

NH10 is an upcoming film directed by Navdeep Singh. It stars Anushka Sharma and Neil Bhoopalam in lead roles, and marks the production debut of Sharma. The film is co-produced by Phantom Films. It tells the story of a young couple whose road trip goes awry after an encounter with a group of violent criminals.

The film's title refers to the 403 km long National Highway 10 that starts from Delhi, passes through Haryana via Bahadurgarh, Rohtak, Hisar, Fatehabad, Sirsa and ends at the Pakistan border in Punjab. The film is scheduled for release on 13 March 2015.
