On the other hand, Amit is a very celebrated writer among social media and youth, but there are some such secrets in his real life too, which he has kept hidden due to his image. Mala (Sarika) also joins them as a co-traveller on this interesting road trip, but then these friends have no idea that the string of Mala is also connected to their lives somewhere. Parineeti Chopra accompanies him in this difficult journey as his captain and guide.
Producer-director Sooraj Barjatya has returned with height after a full seven years. It would not be an exaggeration to say that he has made the story relevant without compromising on Rajshree’s family and cultural values. The interesting thing is that the director through this journey also takes the internal journey of the characters through introspection without any rhetoric. Though the story revolves around elderly characters, Suraj does not neglect the thinking of the generation and their problems through it. Parent-child, inter-generational discord is analyzed rationally. Sooraj has taken full care of the fact that in the emotional moments, when tears flow from the eyes, then there also come such light moments, where you cannot live without laughing or smiling. It is written in the scriptures that our mountains are the symbols of our Vedas and this is the Himalayas, ‘Even though we cannot see Himalayas, but we should not forget that within us we also have the power of Himalayas, which can help us in every aspect of life. Can cross the heights,’ the dialogues go deep into the depths of the heart. According to the films of today’s era, this film is very long. The journey of Delhi-Agra-Kanpur-Lucknow-Gorakhpur-Kathmandu is heart touching and enjoyable. The first half is strong, but in the second half, the story looks a bit chaotic. The background score is excellent. Irshad Kamil’s lyrics are soulful in Amit Trivedi’s music. Manoj Kumar Khatoi’s camera lens captures all the locations of this road trip beautifully. There is also a view of the food and culture of different places.
Height: Starcast and Acting
The fortress of acting in the film is the strongest. Every artist is accurate in his cast and this is the reason why everyone’s tunes are seen in harmony. There are many layers to the character of Big B and when he portrays this central character on screen, his style and swag as well as depth of emotion are visible. Anupam Kher in the role of a temperamental friend cannot live without accolades. Neena Gupta has become a benchmark for the success of such family roles. It is nice to see Sarika in the form of a garland after a long time. Boman Irani makes Javed’s character memorable with his special performance. Danny leaves a deep impression in a small role. Parineeti Chopra does justice to her role.
Why watch – Must watch this film explaining the meaning of friendship and life.
