This stale version of NH10 has you walk out in the middle while Tara Sutaria runs for her life.
This is just about ninety minutes long, and there are a hundred reasons, in my opinion, to watch NH10 instead of this.

A group of local goons are seen looting a car for the most basic reason while traveling from Chambal to Agra, and the cause is given with such a long-a** build-up that you don’t even care. The reason it’s NH44 (likely because the route is Chambal to Jhansi) and you keep receiving individuals who might beat you to death merely to plunder your goods is because the goons are Sukhi (Abhishek Banerjee), Jugnu (Rajpal Yadav), Balli (Sumit Gulati), and Chhota (Aaditya Gupta).

When a bus driver refuses to allow them the way to pass, they overtake it in order to kill him and his companion on their way home after the plunder.

What comes next? abduct a stunning girl from the passengers, attempt to ruthlessly abuse her, and ultimately meet your demise at the hands of her. That concludes the tale.

For your information, the girl is Apurva (Tara Sutaria), and she is going to Agra to surprise her boyfriend Sid (Dhairya Karwa). She has saved the name of Sid as “Sid Poochie” on her phone, complete with two hearts and a “face blowing kiss” emoji. I am aware that the material is superfluous, but that is precisely the focus of the movie—information needed to create a compelling story.


The highly anticipated film “Kill” directed by Nikhil Nagesh Bhat is a story you can tell in a single breath without making anyone feel excited. Alright, let me to attempt. The narrative describes how four thugs abduct a female from a bus, abuse her, and then, because they are idiots, kill each of them one by one. Were you intrigued enough to follow the outcome? If so, you should wait to see what happens to wrap up this story that is guaranteed to make you laugh.

The ferocity with which the criminals break the female they take determines how surprising the story is, and none of their tactics are new enough to make you feel anything. This simply serves to highlight the need for more deference for films such as Anushka Sharma’s NH10. Anshuman Mahaley’s cinematography, which blindly revolves around the script’s conventional presentation, is nothing particularly noteworthy.

Stars Performance:

Sadly, Tara Sutaria’s opportunity to perform beyond her role as a flowerpot comes in the wrong movie. It’s simply better than her previous efforts, which isn’t really a standard to match even for her, so this in no way indicates that she has arrived.

I said to myself, “Yes!” at the first look of Rajpal Yadav. He’s finally not doing comedy, so this should be fascinating. But with each new scene, I thought to myself, “Why is he not doing comedy?” The fact that Abhishek Banerjee is doing this following the horrific events of Hathoda Tyagi is reminiscent of Robert Downey Jr.’s Dolittle role during Avengers: Endgame.

In this disjointed crime-drama narrative, Aaditya Gupta and Sumit Gulati, the other two dacoits, are given equal prominence to the “mystery.” In the movie, Dhairya Karwa appears just at the very end, when his girlfriend Tara kills everyone and exclaims, “Main aa gaya hoon!”
