Mumbai has been performing decently, but the film is best in the Delhi, Gurgaon circuits. With no big competition, the film has a chance to maintain its decent stride over the week.

Due to an important World Cup match tomorrow, the collections for the sixth day may get affected. The film is expected to end its first week with a decent figure of over 20 crores at the domestic box office.

  1. What a movie !!

    First of all it is not a movie for the faint hearted. IT has lots of violence, very graphic, very real and very ‘in-your-face’ . It scare you like a horror movie – the first half particularly – is a very powerfully made and acted horror movie. My wife wanted to leave within 10 minutes and I could, for once, really understand why. I wondered after the movie was over why it had such a powerful impact and puts fear into you as one has not experienced for a long time and never, for sure, from a Hindi movie. After all we have had our Gangs of Wasseypur and Ugly etc. I think this movie is different from those violent movies in a very significant way. When I was seeing Gangs of W’pur, I was not part of what was happening. The protagonists, the place was somewhere else. It wasn’t ever going to happen to me. NH10 has, in Anushka and Neel, a young couple who could be my children. When they are under violent attack, one feels involved and that is what scares you.

    So. once again, it is not for the faint hearted and the first half can be quite an experience. The second half is equally well made and violent but there is a difference, this has Anushka in more control as the story goes along and this makes the audience, identifying with her, a bit more in control as well. Many critics have compared the movie to Kill Bill – well the second half does seem to be inspired by it.

    Another thing that hits you while watching the movie is how real is the violence by what are normal people in a northern Indian state. Those of us who have lived in Delhi and have family and friends living in Delhi and Gurgaon are well aware of the very disturbing social acceptance of violence of the type one would not expect to come across outside movie theatres – violence and a culture that expects it as ‘normal’ The cops, the standers by, the villagers including the women are not caricatures from the fertile imagination of the writer and director – these we know exist. So the movie really sets one thinking on what is going to happen if Haryana and a few other North Indian states continue with this kind of violent culture towards women in particular and overall in general.

    Go and see it because this is a movie of a type that has not been made before in this country. See it not just to experience the powerful emotions it kindles within you but to think about where some parts of India are headed in the second decade of the 21st century.

    It is scary indeed.
