Hawaizaada  Hindi Movie Review


Ratings:2/5 Review By:  Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
Hawaizaada is jingoistic, melodramatic, naïve, and often illogical. It might have worked as a quirky flight of fancy, but Puri and his characters take things way too seriously, robbing the film of that very sense of awe and wonder that it so badly needed.I’m going two out of five. It’s an interesting idea that never takes flight.

You know that the makers have their heart in the right place because of the scale on which they have mounted this drama. The sets and VFX deserve a mention. However, you come back a tad disappointed because unlike Shivi who managed to put the wind beneath his wings, the film itself doesn't provide even surface-level thrills.

A well-intentioned but stodgy cinematic fleshing out of an obscure footnote in aviation history, Hawaizaada takes eons to climb to cruising altitude. When it does get there with excessive load weighing it down, it is pretty much on a wing and a prayer. Sadly, he does not back up the surface gloss with the kind of dramatic traction and logic that can hold a two-and-a-half-hour-long film together.

Inspired from real life events of Shivkar Bapuji Talpade, the first Indian scientist credited to have constructed the first unmanned plane, has a historically significant event at its core. Thanks to the film’s half-baked treatment, it is reduced to appearing like a flight of fancy of an impulsive wastrel than an ambitious dream of a strong-willed genius. Hawaizaada, in the end, is a flight of fancy that fails to take off.

Hindi cinema feeds us enough fiction for us to expect a completely true story told with hundred per cent accuracy. So the factual question marks are not entirely what we fault 'Hawaizaada' for. True or not, it was a good subject that the director had his hands on. But sadly, 'Hawaizaada' limps a bit too much to even come close to convincingly recreate the life of a man who dreamt to be the first one to fly.

 The film barely touches upon anything that's got to do with the story pertaining to the first manmade Indian flight and is far away from reality. It is instead loaded with melodrama. At the end of the film, one really feels sorry for the film's producer because the over-expense was just not needed! On the whole, HAWAIZAADA is all gloss no substance. Skip it.

The awkward tone of the movie makes you wonder whom it was made for. There’s too much romance and too little adventure for children, and it’s too foolish for adults. Puri attempts to infuse Hawaizaada with a child-like sense of wonder. Regrettably he manages to render a film that is childish.

Well, for starters the entire plot which clearly seemed to have lost its focus from being Hawaizaada to becoming ‘Ishaqzaada’. Having said that, out of the 153 minute long movie, it will be difficult to subtract the amount of time wasted on songs which keep popping up every now and then.

Hawaizaada is an ambitious attempt to chronicle the life of the maverick Indian scientist Shivkar Talpade who claims to have invented an airplane before the Wright Brothers. The film oscillates between showcasing Talpade’s blinding love and his mad ingenuity. What’s also jarring are the elaborate sets that have been constructed to transport us to the 19th century era. All of this makes it difficult to take Hawaizaada seriously as a liberally-altered biopic. The premise was promising, but the film never soars dramatically.

  1. Hawaizaada is one of the best historical movie. It is Ayushmann's best performance as compared to all his previous movies. Must watch for all.

    Hawaizada is a good attempt by the director in but unfortunately too much romance spoils the movie completly.The story is about shivkar talpade(Ayushman Khurrana) who is nthing but useless in the eyes of society falls in love with Pallavi Sharda and it goes same like traditional love story..Shastri(Mithun Chakravorty)is a scientist who is working for the invention of aeroplane was supported by Ayushman Khurrana.The first half of the story is a complete waste there is nothing except the same ghisa Pita romance... The second part was ok,there were certain things which can be easily predictable and the climax is not at all attractive..Performance of Mithunda in this film is actually brilliant,Ayushman is good whereas Pallavi Sharda is a complete waste..Songs are ok but they are used too frequently,background score is good.The Direction Is also not that great actually the filmmaker got confused whether he is going to make this a romantic movie or a sonething serious related to scientific inventions of aeroplane..Overall the film is below average....My Rating 2/5.

  6. HAWAIZAADA: Get some air! [1.5/5]

    As defined on the ‘know-it-all’ Wikipedia online page; coffee table books are an oversized art & literature piece, positioned best in the shelf to inspire conversation. Subject matter is predominantly non-fiction and pictorial. Nothing changes if you dare to compare the same with debutante writer-director Vibhu Puri’s highly ambitious HAWAIZAADA. Both can make you mesmerized with their picture-perfect, magnanimously shot visuals in its in-detailed presentation but that’s it. There is hardly any room for content there. So, keep flipping the pages till you find the levels of your enthusiasm fading down to minimum. And then, leave it for another. These days, they have plenty in stores for you.

    Despite having great possibility of being a well-intentioned period drama-cum-thrilling biopic, HAWAIZAADA offers nothing but plain air sure more than what you buy in your favorite wafer pack at the shop around the corner. Before Wright Brothers could go beyond imagination and invent an airplane, there was an enthusiastic Indian named Shivkar Bapuji Talpade who deserved all the respects for being the real pioneer. A plot fascinating enough for a motion picture, no second thoughts on that! But then you have to see what Vibhu does with that further.

    Take inspirations from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s extravagant Victorian era-inspired hugely unbelievable sets; make your leading character as dynamic, animated and charming as if he’s not from a historic background but out of a fairytale and then put plenty of gloss in everything that comes in your way. It has been a confirmed Midas touch for Bhansali’s fictional outings. Vibhu, one of his worthy successors tries the same with a biopic and fails miserably. You are left in constant doubts as to appreciate the efforts of such gigantic talents of the industry or to mourn the opportunity getting wasted on such large scale.

    Rajesh Khanna says in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s ANAND, “Yeh duniya ek ranmanch hai, jahaanpanaah…aur hum sab iski kathputliyaan” (The world is a big stage, my lord…and we all are nothing but the puppets). I have never seen a biopic so theatrical that you just want to remove the disclaimer and enjoy it as a fictional drama. This Bombay of 1895 never looked so decked up. Shastry [Played by Mithun Chakraborty] as a cranky scientist lives in a dumped ship on the shore and it is barely any lesser than a well-established museum.

    On the performances, Ayushmann Khurrana charms with his trademark flirtatious looks and killing smile. I hoped to see the compliments like ‘Awww, how cute he is!’ getting up the next level with ‘Wow, how good he acts!’ but looks like I have to wait a little more. Pallavi Sharda of BESHARAM fame is better than her last. Mithun repeats himself but doesn’t fail at all. For the rests, it’s the child actor Naman Jain and Jameel Khan who show some kind of believability to their characters.

    Having said that, HAWAIZAADA does have some of the most impressive efforts on the set-designing & writing front [dialogues & lyrics never fall short of expectations] but the completely off-track romance, bumpy screenplay, lack of much-needed realistic approach and the overtly dramatic Broadway like production-style make it a droning, dull and monotonous watch. [1.5/5]

  7. Excellent script with wonderful performance of Ayushmann Khurrana and Mithun.
    The movie could have been edited better getting rid of 30 mins, atleast.
    Nevertheless, worth a watch

  8. Hawaizaada is a film about the first person who created an aircraft before Wright Brothers.It is also a story which reflects Indian Scientists who struggled for their dreams and fought with society for their differing thoughts.

  11. A lot of controversy has been there in the recent days as to who actually made the first aircraft. Though the aircraft made by the Wright Brothers in 1903 had been credited as the ‘first human flight’, some people believe that Shivkar Bapuji Talpade, an indian, happened to do this eight years before the Wright Brothers. Director, Vibhu Puri’s ‘Hawaizaada’ is a biopic on this ‘not so famous man’.

    Shivkar Bapuji Talpade aka Shivi (Ayushmann Khurrana), son of a Zamindar, has been failing in the same class since eight years now. Life gives a new meaning to him when he meets Sitara (Pallavi Sharda), a dancer, and falls for her. A series of events land him up to the doors of Shastri (Mithun Chkraborty), who wishes to make the first Indian aircraft and use it as a tool to free India from the British rule. Identifying Shivi’s potential, Shastri offers Shivi to work for him to which Shivi agrees. The rest of the story depicts the hurdles they face while making the airplane.

    ‘Hawaizaada’ starts off on a good note but soon gets too involved with the love story of the main character which was not desired. Now that’s a perfect example of ‘how to ruin a plot’! The love story unnecessarily adds to the length of the movie by atleast half an hour which becomes a test of patience for the audiences.

    Ayushmann Khurrana does a decent job, though not as good as his performance in ‘Vicky Donor’. Pallavi Sharda is hard to bear. Mithun Chakraborty is excellent.

    Hawaizaada would have been way better had the film makers focused more on the central theme rather than applying the usual tactics of selling a film.

    Rating- 2/5
