NH 10 Movie Review

Movie: NH 10

Director: Navdeep Singh
Producer: Vikramaditya Motwane, Anushka Sharma, Krishika Lulla, Karnesh Sharma, Vikas Bahl, Anurag Kashyap

Movie review of 'NH10'. Anushka Sharma’s maiden co-production NH10 is a film to appreciate for many reasons. It is a well-written, deftly-directed thriller with a frighteningly brilliant performance by the leading lady. It’s a film so hauntingly real and credible that a viewer feels stripped of all sense of safety and security.

From the get-go, 'NH10' sucks you into its nether world of misogyny and patriarchy, a world where lawlessness is rampant and murder no big deal. It’s not a fictional world, but the one that exists cheek-by-jowl with the urban, so-called progressive India.

Into this dark, bleak and murderous scenario are thrown in two city slickers, Meera (Anushka Sharma) and Arjun (Neil Bhoopalam). As a working, married couple living in Gurgaon, the two have their first brush with the city’s ravenous underbelly when one night Meera’s car is waylaid and attacked by a bunch of hoodlums and she escapes by the skin of her teeth. The incident rattles Meera.

“Yeh shahar badhta bacha hai. Kood toh lagayega hi,” is a policeman’s explanation.

To help her get over the trauma (of the incident and not the cop’s apathy), the couple plans a getaway on Meera’s birthday. But this outing turns nightmarish when on the National Highway 10 they walk into the scene of an honour killing, and thus themselves become the target of the killers.

In a nutshell, 'NH10' is a disturbing, infuriating, blood-curdling indictment of a sordid side of our society. It’s an unpleasant reality, but the one we should learn to look dead in the eye. ‘NH10’ gives us that unvarnished, unsettling glimpse. Go for it.

Dum Laga Ke Haisha' makes Rs. 6 cr in opening weekend

The latest YRF release Dum Laga Ke Haisha grew from strength to strength in its opening weekend. The film could well be a sleeper hit.

'Dum Laga Ke Haisha' showed its dum at the box office in its first three days. Riding on a very positive word of mouth and glowing reviews by critics, the film starring Ayushmann Khurrana and introducing Bhumi Pednekar, drew in more and more footfalls with every passing day.

Since it’s primarily a multiplex film, the response was best at plexes in the metros.

Here’s the break-up of the opening weekend business:

Friday: Rs. 1.11 crore
Saturday: Rs. 2.12 crore
Sunday: Rs. 2.85 crore
Weekend total: Rs. 6.08 crore net at Indian box office.

Movie Review: 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ will win your heart

As you can see above, the start on Friday was pretty slow, but the business almost doubled on the second day and peaked on Sunday.

The film has got very good reviews and the newcomer Bhumi Pednekar has come in for a special praise. On top of it, a lot of celebs from Bollywood are showering compliments on ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’.

Good cinema doesn’t fail to get attention.

Dum Laga Ke Haisha Movie Review

Movie: Dum Laga Ke Haisha

Cast: Ayushmann Khurrana, Bhumi Pednekar, Kumar Sanu, Sanjay Mishra, Alka Amin, Sheeba Chaddha, Seema Pahwa, Sanjeeva Vatsa, Shardul Rana, Chandrachoor Rai, Shrikant Verma, Mahesh Sharm
Director: Sharat Katariya
Producer: Aditya Chopra, Maneesh Sharma
Production Co: Yash Raj Films
Music Director: Anu Malik

Here at last is a YRF film with some real dum. Dum Laga Ke Haisha packs a wallop of a simple yet unconventional story told from the heart. It’s a film that makes you laugh, makes you cry, and makes you root for the protagonists as they discover love in an unexpected way.

The film is set in the 1990s, when Kumar Sanu was the king of playback singing, when audio cassettes were the staple of music lovers, when the antediluvian Bajaj scooters were the coveted ride, and when Limca was the surefire relief from acidity. In those times in Haridwar, lives a meek and timid school-dropout named Prem Prakash Tiwari (Ayushmann Khurrana), who harbours the romantic dream of marrying a svelte, jeans-clad girl but is married off by his overbearing father to an overweight girl named Sandhya (Bhumi Pednekar).

The marriage obviously doesn’t take off, as Prem is embarrassed of Sandhya every step of the way, even though she likes him.

Sandhya is a contrast to her husband in many ways. He’s thin, she’s anything but that. He’s academically challenged; she’s educated. He’s a pushover; she doesn’t take hurt lying down. The marriage comes to the point of falling apart. But then a sliver of hope and love shines through.

Dum Laga Ke Haisha is not the least bit burdened by the trappings of a big banner film. It eschews not just the mainstream clichés but also the ones we’ve come to expect from the YRF films set in small-town India.

This Sharat Katariya-directorial has its heart in the right place and it tells us that beauty isn’t skin deep. At the core of the film is a touching story that spreads its tentacles around you slowly and then devours you in a heart-warming climax.

The film recreates the milieu of the 1990s with much conviction, thanks to a swell job by the production designer Meenal Agarwal. The writing is pretty spot on and laced with wit. My only gripe is about a few unnecessary deviations the film takes in the second half.

Ayushmann Khurrana redeems himself after the forgettable ‘Hawaizaada’ with a very ‘unheroic’ performance that makes one sit up and take note. But it is the film’s roly-poly leading lady Bhumi Pednekar who walks away with a resounding applause for her very natural, effortless and yet immensely moving performance. This debutante surely knows how to make her presence felt in more ways than one.

The support cast comprising Sanjay Mishra (as Ayushmann’s father), Alka Amin (mom) and Sheeba Chadda (aunt) chip in well.

Kudos to director Sharat Katariya for telling a moving tale simply and effectively. Kudos to producer Maneesh Sharma for backing this wonderful project. And kudos to Yash Raj Films for supporting a good film.

‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ is the best thing you can find at the movies this week. Don’t miss it.
