Highway Reviews and IMDb Rating

The Telugu movie received below-average reviews from critics. The Times of India, rating the film 2 out of 5, wrote, “Highway is passable fare at best, but the story had the potential to be fleshed out better.” For them, as the characters don’t leave any room for ambiguity, the acting in the film is also not up to par. India today, too, holds a similar view. In their opinion, ‘Highway had the potential to be a dark and disturbing thriller, but it ended up being a damp squib.’ The Anand Deverakonda film is beyond redemption for them. On IMDb, the Telugu movie Highway has a poor rating of 3.8/10 while writing the story.
