A movie made in Nepal with international quality.
30 August 2013 | by (Kathmandu) – See all my reviews

HIGHWAY is the major way through your life... You cannot see what is there ahead and you don't know how to face it.

Highway is just like a life.. It goes on and nothing extraordinary happens. A movie has a simple start.. And everything goes just simply throughout 80 minutes. But its a kind of movie that once you watched it for 80 minutes you need to think for around 160 minutes to analyze.. And that's the main beauty of this movie. Being a completely different taste in Nepali film industry, Highway is an absolute non commercial and movie with no end. Simple but extremely natural screenplay, a good editing art, flawless performance and a purely refined storytelling technique makes this movie a unique most movie in Nepali Cinema till date... It may not among the world's best art films but definitely is a winner start in Nepal... My two thumbs are not sufficient to support this movie for certain parts that I liked.Stories are expressed in extremely unique way. Truly deserves the international platform like BFF. The subject matters taken in the story are the mirrors that reflect the social life of this century. While watching this movie, first scene to last scene you feel the same. Nothing exciting happens, nor you get bored. Definitely the direction is acceptable. Background score is fine, cinematography is not extremely wonderful but suits the movie in its own way.....
