After giving super hits like Jab We Met(2007), Love Aaj Kal (2009)and Rockstar(2011), Imtiaz Ali is back with his unusual film making style with the upcoming movie Highway, releasing on 21st February 2014. This movie starring newbie Alia Bhatt and critically commended Randeep Hooda was shot in six different states of India including the director's favorite hot spots Himachal Pradesh and Kashmir. This romantic drama on the road trip showcases the bonding between a rustic kidnapper (played by Hooda) and an urban rich girl who is abducted before marriage (Alia). The extraordinary journey showcases the transformation that comes in the life of this girl who in the end wants this trip to be a never ending one.
This is Alia Bhatt's second movie post the super hit debut SOTY (Student of the Year) in 2013. The trailer which is already popular on YouTube and on television shows her to be this vivacious and bubbly girl in a de-glam avatar, resembling the Jab We Met of Kareena. Hopefully, Imtiaz succeeds in bringing her hidden talent and creativity just like Kareena's and gives wings to her career. Even Randeep's bucolic image is being appreciated everywhere. The music of the movie composed by Oscar winner AR Rahman, and the sound by another Academy Award winner Resul Pookutty, is already a huge hit in the song charts. Rahman is working with Imtiaz again in this film after giving the astounding music of Rockstar. Watch out for Alia Bhatt's first attempt at singing! She has reportedly sung a song in the movie.
Written, directed and co-produced by Imtiaz Ali, who is infamous as the Yash Raj Chopra of the 21st century Bollywood, Highway is getting a global stage with its selection for screening at the Berlin Film Festival 2014. According to him, this romantic drama should have been his first movie and is very close to his heart. Imtiaz explores the genre of romance in a unique way that makes him connect his films with the audience. According to our astrologers at astroYogi, the movie is going to be critically appreciated and will be a hit, grossing a weekend income of almost 40 crores at the box office.
Numerologically, Alia Bhatt is ruled by number 6 and 3 which is similar to the release date of the movie, that is, 3. As per numerology, this number is ruled over by the planet Jupiter and is very lucky. Even Randeep's lucky number is 2, which is totally in sync with the ruling number of this year, that is, number 7. Number 6 is lucky for A R Rahman and number 7 for Imtiaz - overall, the movie will be acclaimed everywhere and will definitely be on the top hits list of the year.
Like Rockstar, this movie too will grab everyone's attention with good performances by the lead actors. As far as the movie predictions go, there's great possibility that Highway will have a smooth ride on the highway of the box office and it will cast a magical spell on the audience!
