Storyline

A passenger filled highway coach traveling from Eastern Nepal to Kathmandu hits one delay after another, the first of those delays due to a bandh. After a lengthy stop, they are able to bypass the bandh as they masquerade as a wedding party, as bandhs unofficially allow wedding vehicles through their protests. The passengers are able fortuitously to come up with this masquerade as the one acting as the bride is indeed going to Kathmandu to get engaged. The stories of those on board, some whose the delay help, some whose it hurts, are told. The "bride", medical student Pooja, is torn between marrying her intended fiancé Abiral, just returned from the United States and who she's known since they were children, and her lover Ronit. The "groom", Pratiek, whose parents do not approve of his homosexual orientation, has a new boyfriend Vishal, who is facing a personal crisis with his transgendered roommate, Deena. The "wedding planner", Manoj, who is in the military, is rushing to see his ... Written by Huggo

HIGHWAY, follows the journey of nine characters whose individual stories become accidentally interconnected during an ill-fated bus journey to the capital Kathmandu
20 July 2012 | by mostwanted_yashantSee all my reviews

Set among the breathtaking landscapes of Eastern Nepal, HIGHWAY, the first full-length feature of director Deepak Rauniyar, follows the journey of nine characters whose individual stories become accidentally interconnected during an ill-fated bus journey to the capital Kathmandu. The passengers — each of whom urgently needs to be somewhere else – find themselves stranded on the only highway due to an improvised and unlawful strike known as a "bandh". While the passengers work out a resolution to escaping the combustible strike, the film shifts into their psychological and spiritual "bandhs", exploring a situation that many Nepalis are contending with since the end of the bloody 12-year civil conflict. The film is co-produced by acclaimed actor/producer Danny Glover and Emmy® nominated producer Joslyn Barnes for Louverture Films, New York. Dr. Lonim P. Dixit, Dr. Sameer M. Dixit and Mita Hosali are the executive producers of the film.
