UK premiere of NH10 at Nehru Centre London was presented by Eros International which decided to support Indian Art Week London 2015.
One dialogue alone in this film superbly explains the lawlessness in the Gurgaon and other smaller cities in India.
“In Gurgaon where the last Shopping Mall ends, there itself the democracy and the constitution end”. After 68 years the areas where even electricity couldn’t reached how come the democracy would reach.”
The title NH10 refers to National Highway 10 leading from Delhi to Gurgaon which is base of many Fortune 500 companies, and then further into the backward lawless region of Haryana where actress Anushka Sharma spends most of her time fighting for her life.
The film brilliantly highlight the still prevalent so-called “honour killing” tradition in various Indian state. A young couple was brutally murdered by the bride’s male relatives for marrying against the traditions of their caste.
The film is based on real social issues in India and will be scary for people who do not know about the regressive social customs but must for any westerner who wants to understand more about the Indian Culture. Anushka Sharma played the role superbly.
Journalism News Network give 5 out of 5 to this movie for highlighting the real regressive issues which has been ignored so long.
