Storyline

A city girl - young, full of life - is on the highway at night with her fiancé. Suddenly, her life is swung away from the brocade and jewelry of marriage to the harsh brutality of abduction. Her life will never be the same again. The gang is in a panic; the girl is a big industrialist's daughter, his links in the corridors of power make ransom out of the question. But for the leader of this group sending her back is not an option. As the days pass by, the scenery changes, the girl feels that she has changed as well. Gradually, a strange bond begins to develop between the victim and the oppressor. It is in this captivity that she, for the first time, feels free. Written by Vikram Nayak

Imtiaz Ali's best work till date
23 February 2014 | by hardyboy666See all my reviews

I absolutely loved it. It had such an impact on me that i couldn't stop thinking about it whole night. The cinematography was ethereal. The direction was beautiful. I've always loved Imtiaz Ali's direction. I don't know why people criticize him. He is one of the best directors we've in bollywood. The cinematic understanding that this guy have is unbelievable. RANDEEP HOODA man o man what a breathetaking performance. He absolutely nailed Mahabir's character. This has to be the most underrated performance in years. The guy is seriously talented and deserves much more than he's getting. Alia Bhatt was amazing. Considering it was just her 2nd film she did exceptionally well. The real hero of the movie was Imtiaz Ali. The layers that he put in the characters can only be done by an artist with exceptional talent. 4.5/5 from my side.
