Highway is a Bengali film, directed by Sudipto Chattopadhyay and produced under the banner of Surinder Films. The film features actors Koel Mallick and Parambrata Chatterjee in the lead roles. Music of the film has been composed by Anupam Roy. This film was released on 8 August, 2014.
The idea of a game play is definitely interesting and creates a challenging space too. But not all games are played with equal expertise. Director Sudipto Chattopadhyay has tried to play a game on screen with his game imbibed narrative. But unfortunately the game is not exciting enough and within the first 15 minutes of the film almost reveals its content much before the actual game was over.
Koel (Sohini) and Parambrata (Ashwin Kapoor) are married for 4 years now. And each year they come to celebrate their anniversary at Darjeeling, the place where they actually met for the first time. But the fourth year actually awaited a twist and a few character coincidences. Within the backdrop of different characters, their personal stories, their angst, losses and joys, the couple begins playing a game.
The idea of the game is fine, the concept is fine. But why the name Highway? The film's name should actually encompass all the aspects of the narrative but unfortunately 'Highway' has no significance in the film and does not justify the storyline at all.
The director has been wise enough to select three powerful actors for the film. With Koel Mallick, Silajit and Parambrata holding Highway on their shoulders the film will at least see it through to the second or third week. The film has its own problems of continuity as well. And cinematography was indeed not a problem with Darjeeling as the backdrop. Overall the rating is not for the director or the narrative as such, but for the acting, cinematography and nothing else.
Decent attempt. But nothing extraordinary about it. A ridiculously simple narrative that has been essentially, crafted to produce some extraordinary results. Alas!
Sudipto Chattopadhyay who has made Hindi films like Pankh and the unreleased Shobhana 7 Nights is now ready with his first Bengali film, Highway. Featuring Parambrata Chatterjee and Koel Mallick in the lead, the film is produced by Nispal Singh of Surinder Films who incidentally is also Koel’s husband. Highway has music by Anupam Roy while R.Dee is the DOP and Rabi Ranjan Maitra is the editor.
Highway apparently revolves around the life of two people, who come across each other on a highway and that’s when a significant moment appears in their lives, being the witness of all their ups and downs as their love story takes various twists and turns.
While Koel has been seen in films like Chaar and Arundhati this year, Parambrata left his mark with Apur Panchali. Let us wait and see if Highway can repeat the success of Srijit Mukherji’s Hemlock Society which also featured Parambrata and Koel. Highway will be due for release shortly. Check out the trailer for now.
