NH-8 Road to Nidhivan is a para-psychic – Suspense Thriller film directed by Munindra Gupta is about 4 amateur film makers who have been offered huge amount which cannot be refused. This large amount is offered to shoot a documentary on the myth surrounding Nidhivan in Uttar Pradesh.
The film is set against the backdrop of a road trip of four friends from Mumbai to Nidhivan, a place close to Mathura in Uttar Pradesh.
Auroshikha Dey, Ravneet Kaur, Satyakaam Anand, Arjun Fauzdar play the foursome on a road trip to Mathura.
NH 8- Road to Nidhivan is written & directed by Munindra, Produced by Sunil Goel & Niharika Jha,
Editing by Prakash Jha lacks the crispiness and the DOP by Miles Rangaswamy appears tacky at several moments.
It would otherwise have been a gripping film which is inspired by true stories of the mysterious conception of Nidhivan, a place near Mathura in Uttar Pradesh.
Towards the end of the film, it is recorded by the characters while filming the documentary on this myth, several of residents of Mathura and nearabouts mentioned of some over enthusiastic group of students trying this out, and none of them could come back. Others, it is said had become blind, or even so shocked that they now lead a deaf-n-dumb’s life.
Though Munindra Gupta has tried hard, the film fails to keep the viewer engaged through the end, except at very few instances in the first half which appear to be somewhat scary.
