NH10 Movie Review by Top Critics

Ratings:3.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
'NH10', directed by Navdeep Singh, is about a road trip that goes horribly wrong when a young married couple crosses paths with a gang of ruthless killers on the national highway. It's a standard genre movie on the surface, and Singh does a good job of creating edge-of-the-seat tension. But he also layers the narrative with rich subtext, delivering so much more than your average thriller.I'm going with three-and-a-half out of five for 'NH10'. It's often terrifying on this highway, but you'll be glad you were there for the ride.

On the whole, NH10 is raw and entertaining in its own way. No doubt, it is meant more for the class audience but since the investment in the film  is not big, it would very easily fetch commission. Sadly, the recovery from all other sources, except India theatrical, would be very limited. In spite of that, the film will fetch profits.

It's easy to hate NH10 while watching it because it's one of the most terrifying Hindi films ever - while simultaneously, you love its brilliance. The film's story, apparently inspired by Eden Lake, is truly taut, no moment letting you relax, no layer - like Meera's vulnerability against both Arjun's ego and the vicious gang - comforting. NH10 is a relentless thriller you wish you could see with your eyes closed - because truly, as its song goes, chill gaye naina.

But the suspension of disbelief is difficult when it comes to the leading lady, who, in her zeal to become a Killi Billi, throws the credibility switch. It’s not that Sharma, who has also produced the film, is not trying hard. She is, and up to a point, she is in fine fettle. But at the point when she turns from flee to fight, I stopped believing.

avdeep Singh’s new film is a tough film to stomach, a frightening and disturbing beast, and because it should be just that brutal, given how loyally it adheres to slasher/thriller genre conventions. NH10 is more a pure horror film than any of its companions in the slasher genre simply because we believe what we want to, and it feeds our fears.

NH10 centres on an innocuous road trip that turns into a nightmare for a well-heeled Gurgaon couple.The film, however, holds its path right down to the shocking final moments.NH10 is an adventurous Bollywood film that breaks the shackles of convention and is none the worse for it. Eminently watchable.

What ultimately matters is NH10, even in its inspired form, is a reality we both live and deny. Are men the protectors? Can women protect themselves? Are men the enemy? Are women the enemy? Will we ever get past caste, creed and gender? Are cities worse or villages? Is India too convoluted? Is anyone safe? NH10 doesn’t provide easy answers.

Anushka Sharma is the central thread of NH10, and she does a satisfactory job, but too much drama in the second half stops her from hitting the bull’s eye. Navdeep Singh nails it in the first half, but the second half lacks the same fluidity and penetration power. NH10 displays a great potential and then fails to capitalise on it.

Ratings:3/5 NH 10 Review By:  Hungama Network Site:Bollywood Hungama
On the whole, NH10 is a wonderfully made film with an outstanding performance by Anushka Sharma. It will be well appreciatedby an intelligent audience that's gunning for women safety and empowerment. The sound cinematic credentials and gripping narrative is the high point of the film. But, as mentioned earlier, the glorification of violence isn't easy to stomach. You need to be really motivated to absorb it. This National Highway has its shares of potholes, but, it is a must visit. Do go the NH10 way!

Ratings:4/5 NH 10 Review By:  Shubha Shetty-Saha Site:Mid-Day
If one has to point out drawbacks, some of the twists in the story seem too convenient and the second half dips a wee bit in energy as compared to the first half. But, overall, the choice of locations, the performances and the brutally honest take on a story that needed to be told, makes this film a hell of a scary ride but absolutely worth it. Don't miss it.

Ratings:3.5/5 NH 10 Review By:  Manjusha Radhakrishnan Site:Gulfnews
NH10 is entertaining and creepy for most parts. It’s an example for perfect casting too. Darshan Kumar as the rod-toting brute, Sharma as the vulnerable woman teetering on the edge of sanity and Bhoopalam as her sensitive partner fits right in. It’s also devoid of melodrama, making NH10 an enjoyable ride.

The greatness of how a woman can take on a society full of men who want to kill her, molest her or even ask her to not look at them in the eye. Hence proved – Hell hath no fury like a woman! Watch NH10 for its bare truths and gruesome elements. It is time that every girl awakens a Meera within her.

  9. NH10:
    Raw, real and ruthless! Anushka leads the way!! [4/5]

    The female protagonist has been put in a situation where every door knocked for help is an added danger to her life; this is not some breaking news for a Bollywood thriller. We have witnessed our leading ladies running after one possible hand of help turning ugly to another many a times and even rising from dust to stand at her own (Rekha is my personal favorite in such given stricture] against all odds. But when Anushka Sharma, calm and cold as corpse, with an iron-rod in her hand sits and lights a cigarette while watching her challenger crawling with a broken leg, this easily becomes ‘my’ moment to cheer for the invincible human survival instinct and all the women empowerment slogans coined just for the sake of it. This is raw. This is real. This is never seen before.

    With a powerfully violent, gritty and dark NH10; Navdeep Singh of MANORAMA SIX FEET UNDER returns to his deep-rooted den of atmospheric crime thrillers where the landscape speaks the language of ruthless nature of criminal mind and the characters don’t even need dialogues to express their anger, anxiety and agitation. Meera [Anushka in a ‘would die for’ role] and Arjun [Perfectly cast Neil Bhoopalam] is your regular career-focused, party-loving couple from Gurgaon- the emerging city of hopes seen working on laptops at their side of the same bed. A perfect holiday at a private villa in the outskirts is planned. It’s Meera’s birthday. A day-long road-trip on highway has started. Beware; even a small brawl can land you in the most brutal nightmare of your life. This is no bright-lit Gurgaon. This is the dark lawless badland where ‘killings’ are an ‘honor’ to the power man upholds. Of course, there is no looking back!

    The plot of NH10 is never unforeseen; in fact you can predict the twists and turns miles before reaching at the end of the road but the undertones used to shake your souls and shiver your guts are very much surprising. The headlines of honor-killings might have raised your eyebrows till the time it’s on your screen but this is like abducting you from your drawing room and throwing in the deserted land of crimes done in the name of cast, creed and culture. A sister is poisoned by her brother [Darshan Kumar from Mary Kom] for loving and marrying boy of same ‘Gothra’. One gentleman in uniform enlightens, “Social norms should not be broken. Never! Try to drive on the wrong side of the road and accidents will happen.” Heartbreaking! Nerve-wracking! And a threatening state of real India-rural India!!

    NH10 marks the arrival of a new Anushka Sharma. The pouting glam-doll sheds her comfort cover and brilliantly plays the carter of the long and hard-pressed angst of Indian women. Every time she screams at her opponents, she doesn’t scream for herself but all the women been ever in such circumstances. She is the answer to every sexiest and stinking remark made ever on any women out there, and the most powerful and the most influential one. The top-slot in the list of year’s best performers has already been taken. Bravura performance!

    In others, Neil Bhoopalam supports well. He boldly shifts from charming guy next flat in the apartment to the fearing-frightened soul shaken by the harsh reality and the evil face of society. Though Darshan Kumar doesn’t have much to do in length but still manages to chill your bones with sinful looks. Can’t miss out on Deepti Naval for her surprise cameo!

    On the whole, NH10 is a ride to hell. A hell every one must visit, admit and act against it. It is sure not a film best described with words like ‘flawless’ and ‘extraordinary’ but these expressions will fit in well in admiring and approving Anushka’s performance. The last act alone is like a winning shot you would want to put on ‘repeat’! [4/5]

    NH10 just like the name, poster and trailer suggests - isn't for everyone. It's as ugly and hard on your face as you fear the world to be, but always wish that, it never touches you.
    'Ph' se 'Fantastic' : Anurag Kashyap's AKFPL always ensures quality. Add Vikramaditya Motwane (Udaan, Lootera) and Navdeep Singh (Manorama Six feet under) and you have all credibilities for a world class product. NH10 makes the highway settings so believable that as a viewer you feel trapped into it and hoping that the protagonists escape unhurt. The film makes you wince, squirm, shriek and momentarily close eyes too. The two hours look adequate, the cast are right in place (including surprise Deepti Naval cameo), the pace and script keep you on the edge. The background music though could have been better. Humans are more dark than bright; and NH10 is nothing more than a reflection of reality. The contrast between your city, aircon, sofa, the Malls and five miles down in the outskirts is too stark to believe. Watch NH10 for what your country is coming down to, for how much humanity is stooping low and for a fair idea on how much freedom / safety measures you or your loved ones must take when venturing outside comfort zone. Specially the first incident, early in the movie and how presence of mind saves Anushka. Each Indian lady has to carry that speed of thinking. Anushka Sharma : 2015 was yet to see a female lead performance of the level we got from Kangana, Alia, Huma or Priyanka in 2014. But producer Anushka was brave to bank on NH10 and lead the way. Her strong performances are helping erase the lip surgery blemish fast. She must have gone through some depression post the mishap and would have gathered all strength to fight back. And fight back she does. Anushka carries the movie on her shoulders - broadly, proudly and decisively. Watch her towards the end lighting a cigarette and watching the fun as NH10 strongly underlines women empowerment. Gender horror : While movie websites will mark it as thriller, NH10 gives the nightmares of a horror movie, brilliantly assembled, frame by frame. It also underlines the darkness within. A male colleague mocks in office how presentations by pretty ladies are appreciated, irrespective of content. When a mother is being slapped hard by his grandmother, the 12yr old son giggles. The local theatre in a village has only men doing female roles. The police is too terrified to intervene in a brutal honour killing incident. In Haryana, every man looks at a women with one objective, irrespective of age; and everywhere women are described on walls as 'saali randi'.I have always believed unless you have the house, bank balance, car and family to protect you, being born a girl in India is close to a curse. NH10 showcases that but also with a foreground of how a lady can rise up to the occasion, if she wants to. Heat of the moment : There are few questionable decisions taken by the protagonists. When Neil Bhoopalam intervenes amidst a fight, you want him not to (but secretly wish every Indian man had that dare). Was Neil's ego so important that he had to go after the ruffians later? Was he right in leaving Anushka alone in the car? Should Anushka have taken help from the first jeep of people? In unfortunate circumstances, it's only presence of mind, instinct and temperature of the blood which decides what next to do. Those decisions can be debated, and it's good that a movie provokes a healthy debate. Rating : 4.25/5 (averaged with friends). Must watch.
    Box Office : Sat 6pm show had 50% hall filled at Singapore. The movie belongs to the 'Ugly', 'Shahid', 'Citylights' genre - great cinema but ones which Indian masses struggle to appreciate. Anushka Sharma's star power and performance stands between a flop or a recovery of 23cr budget. Will Indian masses give so much importance to a lady fighting for her right to live life in her own terms? I doubt it. At best it will break even.
