Highway is a Nepali film produced by Aadi Productions in association with Louverture Films. Highway was officially selected for and screened at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival. It was also speculated that Highway would be taken to the Toronto Film Festival.
Set against the backdrop of the new culture of bandhs (general strikes) that frequently immobilize post-conflict Nepal, Highway explores five different relationship stories that become intertwined during an ill-fated bus journey from eastern Nepal to the capital Kathmandu. While the passengers - each of whom urgently needs to be somewhere else - await a resolution to the combustible strike that is blocking the only passable road, the film explores the psychological and spiritual bandhs that many Nepalese contend with.
The soundtrack of Highway, titled Paplu (Laija Re), was released on Kantipur FM on 26 October 2011. It was composed by Manoj Kumar KC of 1974 AD with lyrics penned by Bhupendra Khadka. Subhani Moktan recorded the song for the film.
