Opening February 21: Highway

One of my most anticipated movies of 2014 — director Imtiaz Ali’s Highway — opens on February 21. According to the director, stars Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda shot most of the movie without a script.

Highway opens on Friday in five area theaters: AMC River East 21 in Chicago, Regal Gardens Stadium 1-6 in Skokie, Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville. It has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 15 min.

After a solid opening weekend, Gunday continues for a second week at all of the above theaters, plus the AMC Loews Woodridge 18 in Woodridge. The cute rom-com Hasee Toh Phasee gets a third weekend at the Golf Glen 5, South Barrington 30, and Cantera 17.

Other Indian movies showing at the Golf Glen 5 this weekend include Ezhu Sundara Rathrikal (Malayalam) and Idhu Kathirvelan Kadhal (Tamil). The Tamil remake of Band Baaja BaaraatAaha Kalyanam — plays at the AMC Loews Streets of Woodfield 20 in Schaumburg and Cinemark at Seven Bridges in Woodridge.

    Highway is terrific. Breathtakingly shot, Alia Bhatt’s brilliant performance, randeep hooda too, A.R.Rehman’s music especially Patakha Guddi….just awesome.
    Though it falls on story portion but who cares if you enjoy every frame of the film.
    Gravity too had paper thin story but it was cinematic brilliance.
    Same for highway.
    Imtiaz’s darkest yet most mesmerising work.
    Am wondering what else he will bring outnin his next movie.
    Just loved it!
    Waiting for your review now kathy.
