Imtiaz Ali directed and Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda starrer ‘Highway’ released on Friday collected around  8.25 crore in two days. The film had a slow start and did not gain momentum. It earned 3.7 crore on the first day and on Saturday, it has made a total of 4.5 crore collection. The film's two-day collection sum up to approximately 8.25 crore.

The film fared well in cities like Bangalore, Delhi, Gurgaon and Mumbai. The film did well at multiplexes than single theatres. ‘Highway’ received mixed reviews from critics but the performance of Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda was applauded. The music of the film was composed by ace composer AR Rahman and is jointly produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Imtiaz Ali.

It is expected that till next Friday, the film will dominate the theatres all over but it would almost vanish from the cinema hall this week as Farah Akhtar and Vidya Balan starrer, ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’ will release on 28th February.

'Highway' is the story of a girl. A city girl - young, full of life - is on the highway at night. With her fiance. They are scheduled to get married in four days. Suddenly, her life is swung away from the brocade and jewellery of marriage to the harsh brutality of abduction. She is taken away by this group of rustic criminals. Her life will never be the same again.

The same night, the gang is in panic. The girl is a big industrialist's daughter. His links in the corridors of power make ransom out of the question. They are doomed. But the leader of this group is adamant. For him sending her back is not an option. He will do whatever it takes to see this through.

Days pass. These are days of unbelievable horror for her. But, as the Tempo runs and miles turn, as the scenery changes, the light changes, the sun sets and rises and the air changes, she feels that she has changed as well.
