Anushka Sharma’s NH10 might Open doors for Content-driven Films

Anushka Sharma brings forth a type of film previously seen scarcely by the likes of RGV who bring together utter realism and gory violence. None of the plots in NH10 is any different than what has been done before, except that this one contrasts city life with the outskirts where constitution and democracy go out for a toss.

Anushka’s debut as a producer, she is the hero in the film where Neil Bhooplam, who plays her husband, has a minimal role. His character dies early in the film while taking on the goons who beat up and kidnap a young girl. The pace of the film picks from this point where we see her getting caught up in a web of Haryana’s patriarchal society where honor killing is the order of the day.

The film is extremely hard-hitting and got in trouble for its depiction of violence. But it depicts the situation as it is and is definitely not for the faint-hearted. Set in Haryana’s backdrop, the film has it all – effects of gender bias, desire for a male child, patriarchal mindset, and casteism. Several parts in the film might remind of the 80s where movies helming women as stick-wielding characters were common. However, NH10 has certainly opened the doors for more such content-driven movies to come across.
