Highway movie review on Twitter: Alia Bhatt wins over audiences!

  Highway movie review

The trailer of Highway had generated so much curiosity about the movie that people assumed they will like the Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda starrer. It will be a great movie, said Imtiaz Ali fans as well. But it seems the director of cult films like Rockstar and Jab We Met has lost touch. The Highway movie review on online tells us that it has received mixed reactions. Most people have loved the film, but some have found it boring. Film critics differ in their opinion in their columns. Some have found Alia and Randeep awesome, while others feel that though the film is good, it lacks heart.

But Twitter reactions differ. Bollywood celebs, including directors Karan Johar, Punit Malhotra and Hansal Mehta and even Arjun Kapoor’s sister Anshula, have loved it. Alia’s family members – her filmmaker dad Mahesh Bhatt and actress-filmmaker sister Pooja Bhatt – hailed the young star’s acting. Film critics, in a rare display of praise, are all for Highway and Alia.

Check out the tweets to figure out if Highway is worth your ticket:

Thank you Imtiaz Ali for making Alia ‘live’ the role of her life time. The women of our country will empathise with this heartfelt tale.

Karan Johar ‏@karanjohar

#Highway is Imtiaz Ali unplugged!! Out of his comfort and totally in command…Randeep is superb and Anil Mehta’s finest work to date!!!

 

 

Hansal Mehta ‏@mehtahansal

I have issues with #Highway but that is because I have always wanted to direct every film Imtiaz Ali has written & directed.Its called envy.

 

 

Hansal Mehta ‏@mehtahansal

Highway is Alia Bhatt’s journey and through her journey every woman’s internal journey to freedom.

 

 

Punit Malhotra ‏@punitdmalhotra

The best thing about #Highway is that it has Randeep Hooda and Alia Bhatt in the lead. Bigger stars would have ruined the film.

The last 40 minutes of #Highway took me by complete surprise. THAT is the film, not what we’ve been made to believe so far.

Mihir Fadnavis ‏@mihirfadnavis

Saw Imtiaz Ali’s unconventional, dark, and by a large margin, his best film. Highway is terrific. As is Alia Bhatt.

Suprateek Chatterjee ‏@SupraMario

All right, #Highway is the first great film of 2014. @aliaa08 and Randeep Hooda bust out some massive acting chops. Take a bow!

Navjot Gulati ‏@Navjotalive

HiGHWAY. Interval. A SLAP on face of all IA detractors. This is so UnAli.

Devansh Patel ‏@PatelDevansh

#HIGHWAY teaches us how the truth, no matter how difficult it is to tell at times – has the power to heal & sometimes set us free. @aliaa08.

  • Kaushik

    This Movie is outstanding, I went with minimum expectation but when I left the movie hall I was amazed. during those hours in theater I was lost on those Highways. The unconventional romance between the two characters was amazing and believe me Imtiaz, Alia and Randeep were too good, Music is superb. This is a Must Must Must watch for them who loves quality work. Believe me I forgot all my work related tensions, frustrations during those magical hours.
