A very Indian case of Stockholm syndrome

On the night before her wedding, Veera is kidnapped by a group of strange men while out with her fiancé. Veera’s father is a rich and influential man, and in fear of the authorities catching up with them the kidnappers never stay in the same place for long. As a result, they end up taking Veera on a journey through the mighty Indian subcontinent, and as she starts bonding with her kidnappers, she realizes that she doesn’t want the journey to end. HIGHWAY is a very Indian story told in a style which is more Hollywood than Bollywood, and the result is a roadmovie you won’t easily forget.
