NH 10 kicks off to a very promising start. Gurgaon by night is at its moody, quixotic best. But all’s not quite well in this seemingly all-right world. A young, educated, professional Meera (Anushka), travelling in her car at night after a party, is accosted by goons. The scene feels way too close for comfort and sends a chill down the spine: how one’s safety can be ever so tenuous, how danger can be lurking in unsuspected corners. NH 10 doesn’t let up on this sense of doom and menacing atmosphere and keeps the viewer on the edge. But not all is fine with the thriller either. The twists and coincidences feel way too convenient, more so if you are good at second-guessing.
