This Friday, you have a solo release called NH10 starring the talented Anushka Sharma and Neil Bhoopalam in the film. Interestingly, this is Sharma’s debut production venture, which she has produced along with the known group called Phantom Films. The film is directed by Navdeep Singh. The movie is loosely based on the Hollywood movie called Eden Lake of 2008, even if you check the poster, it very much resembles to the other movie called Black Widow released in 1987. The movie title talks about the 403 km long NH (National Highway) 10, which stars from New Delhi and passes through a number of states like Haryana and Punjab passing via Rohtak, Sirsa etc and end up close to Pakistan border. The movie was scheduled to released on 6th of March, however, it got delayed due to Central Board having issues on certain cuss words being used and fierce action showcased in the film, which made the film to hit a week later.
Now, let’s talk about the plot of NH10. The movie has a good story line, wherein you have a young and loving couple called Arjun and Meera played by Neil and Anushka respectively. They lead cool life amidst the luxurious amenities in the cosmopolitan city called Gurgaon- a city known for malls and massive foreign investments. The couple is simply fond of loving each other and moving around to have quality time together. Once they plan out a road trip on Meera’s birthday, however, amidst their way, they are trapped in an encounter with a group of fierce criminals. Soon, the film turns out to be a fight for their sustenance with getting virtually no help from anyone including the police in the area as law and order machinery is being managed and handled by these gruesome people. The climax is one of the interesting elements of this film, which is worth catching.
Now talking about the performances, let’s start with the script. Well the script seems to embark with a strong storyline; however, as you move ahead, it loses ground and turns out too violent becoming a typical drama hard to catch by the audience who turn up with audience to catch the film. Yet, it has a couple of elements, which can bind the kind of audience, which likes ferocious action and drama with inquisitiveness and curiosity. The director is successful in adding too many elements, which keep the audience guessing about the next and thus keep them glued till the climax giving less loo breaks. If you talk about performances, Anushka Sharma has once again proved her worth over the silver screen. She is seen in a violet avatar who struggles tough for her survival fighting the goons alone with her husband. Unlike her earlier movies, she embarked as an accomplished actress, who really went deep down the challenging character to give her incredible performance.
On the other side, the Ungli actor – Neil Bhoopalam too was incredible in his acting, however, he was often overshadowed by Anushka, and obviously he is still new in the B Town movies. Despite being novice, his performance was really at par and can be applauded without comparing it to seasoned actresses like Anushka Sharma. Then you have the goon called Darshan Kumar, who seemed really, sweat playing the character of a violet guy. However, his chocolate look and feel cannot be just confided by his character of a violent guy who manages the team of goons. Nevertheless, his performance too can be applauded the best. Now, if we talk about the music and songs, the soundtrack is simply seen fitting the overall modest expectations.
However, for songs like Chhil Gaye Naina and the two versions of Le Cchal Mujhe somewhere would remind you the old Kishore Kumar classics, while the music doesn’t really work overall and somewhere fails to boost the film. Nevertheless, you can thank the music composers for sticking to a certain level in the lyrics. The other aspects of the film like screenplay, dialogue (too many cuss words, likely to hear loads of beeps, thanks to the ferocious Haryanvi language), location, etc, too are seen okay and impressive.
