'Highway' typifies as an aimless road trip which is certainly eye popping in its visuals but unfortunately heart dropping in its actual deliverables. Anyhow 'Highway' is the charming Alia Bhatt's first crowning glory to her b-town acting stories.

Wealthy Veera is kidnapped by brutish Mahavir. Is she on a highway leading to hell - or away?
Srijana Mitra Das, Times of India
Highway is Imtiaz Ali's fifth film and, I suspect, his first film too
Rahul Desai, Mumbai Mirror
First, let’s be clear right off the bat. This is not a typical romance film. Instead we get a road trip movie that forces two people from different walks of life together, all while showing off the beautiful countryside/culture of India. I would say that
Samir Dave, Planet Bollywood
The film Highway commences at a posh locality in Delhi where a rich businessman’s daughter Veera Tripathi (Alia Bhatt) is tying the knot with another who’s who of the city. A few days short of the wedding, the to-be bride who is quickly prone to claustrophobia blackmails her fiance to take her on a nightly drive down to the highway. At a gas station which was being burgled, they stop. Surrounded by all the loot the gang leader Mahabir Bhati (Randeep Hooda) kidnaps Veera. Accompanied by her father’s political connections, it is a daredevil thing for Mahabir who then embarks on a journey from state to state to keep buying time until Alia is sold off successfully into prostitution. How from antagonists do Mahabir and Veera affectionately land up on the same plane is story that needs to be heard in this one
