Meera (Anushka Sharma) and Arjun (Neil Bhoopalam) are new-age married couple residing in Gurgaon. Meera has a trauma when she is carjacked by men while returning home from work. Her husband Arjun decides to take her for a holiday to overcome this and books a villa for her. They travel through National Highway 10 from Delhi to Punjab. But on their way they witness murders, voilence and some relentless stuff that their lives come in a danger mode and they have to strive hard to even survive.
The winnning part of the film is its content. The script keeps you glued to your seats. The film is real. There are no dance sequences, no songs. The incidents that we are watching on news channels these days are shown and depicted such that they look real. Like there is a character telling Meera ““jahaan aapke Gurgaon ka border khatam hota hai, wahan law khatam, madam””. We start doubting our safety in the country.
Anushka as Meera delivers a stellar performance and is the hero of the film. She breaks the stereotype and hits the right cord. Neil Bhoopalam makes a good debut. Darshan Kumaar scares you to the core! Anushka debutes as a smart bold producer. Director Navdeep Singh has portrayed some harsh realities in the most convincing way. The editing is brilliant and so is the background score.
Final Verdict: Dark, Edgy,Gripping
