Hawaa Hawaai Hindi Movie Reviews

Ratings:3/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site: CNN IBN

A slim story told with heart, Hawaa Hawaai is among those rare films about the hard lives of impoverished kids that’s never patronizing. Gupte deftly captures the innocence of children, and gives us some terrific moments that are genuinely moving. The occasional false notes notwithstanding, this is a movie that should be watched. I’m going with three out of five for Hawaa Hawaai. Strap up and zoom.

HAWAA HAWAAI is all about ordinary people. Those who cross our paths every single day, but we barely glance at them. Neither do we have the time or inclination to think of their existence. It’s the story of willpower and determination. And it highlights the triumph of the human spirit in the wake of adversities. It makes you realize that those who dream have the power to move mountains. It’s about ambitions and finding the hero within. On the whole, HAWAA HAWAAI is a gem that shouldn’t be missed. A wonderful creation with heartrending emotions, this one’s inspirational and motivating. Strongly recommended!

So while Hawaa Hawaai isn’t entirely satisfying, I still recommend that you see it. It is a timely reminder of the intractable horrors that children in this country face on a daily basis. I’m going with three stars.

On the whole, Hawaa Hawaai is a fine entertainer which makes the audience laugh, cry, cheer and enjoy. It has the potential to be a hit but its extremely poor start will tell on its business in the final tally. Word of mouth for the film will be positive because of which box-office collections, which were very poor on the first day, will pick up as the days progress.

Hawa Hawaii is simple but wonderful. It’s a well-textured and etched film. Gupte’s first film, the marvellous Stanley Ka Dabba was better-realised cinematically and held more to cherish, but Hawa Hawaai tries to bite off more. And while its larger point about farmer suicides certainly ought have been handled more subtly, at least this film — like its characters — goes for broke. And that’s what makes it special. Or as Arjun would say, “peshal.”

Writer-director Amole Gupte employs the standard tropes of a triumph-of-the-underdog tale to deliver a warm, sensitive and rousing slice-of-life drama. The young boy whose story Hawaa Hawaai is, as well as the four street children who stand by him come hell or high tide, are completely believable and affecting characters that grow on the audience as the film gets into its stride. Don’t expect cheap thrills Hawaa Hawaai. It proffers none. But if it is genuine entertainment that you are looking for, your search ends here.

Amol Gupte’s story is soulful, heart-breaking and hopeful – moving you from tears to deep-thought. He skillfully creates a portrait of the lives of deprived children – with profundity and playfulness. . It’s often stretched and over-dramatized, yet, the story is so heart-warming that the flaws seem like unnecessary details before a climax (however predictable), that’s fulfilling. ‘HH”s inspiring story is for children, for the child in all of us and for adults who need to wake up to dream again.

No doubt that the heart of the film is in the right place, it shows us a world which is so close to all of us and most of the times we choose to ignore and behave as if it doesn’t exist just because it doesn’t affect us directly. The film has its moments that will move you to tears. It’s a film that will touch your heart but it could have been much better had the focus been just the story. Looks like the emphasis is sometimes only on making you feel bad for the subject which should come naturally and not be so in-your-face.

Hawaa Hawaai has all the ingredients for an absorbing and touching film that anyone who has ever had a dream can relate to. It is an inspiring, well-cast and well-enacted film. The street kids will win you over from the moment they walk into the frame. Everyone who cribs that Bollywood doesn’t attempt good films, must go see this. After a point you begin to feel like too many emotional devices are being used.

I love underdogs. Who doesn’t? Especially those who come from disadvantaged backgrounds and show the privileged what’s what. And even more so when they are played by a bunch of endearing fellows, led by a lad who has a flame in his eyes, and a pleasing steadiness of purpose. ‘Hawaa Hawaai’ has a big beating heart, but you wish it had been a better film: it trundles on, leaps up intermittently, but doesn’t fly.

Hawaa Hawaai is an intensely positive film that would turn even cynics propitious. It is not frequent that one would fall for a story like this which has little novelty. What persuades is that it comes with a big heart and a pristine soul. Amol Gupte tells this story with his conspicuously piercing, asking multiple unanswered questions and devising a masterly win for the underdog. If there’s one film that must be watched without fail, this without doubts stands as the best bet.

  1. Very lovelly movie…actor played by oscar winning actor Tusshar kapoor is very brilliant..

  2. Nice movie

  3. Stop irritating everytime writing about tusshar kapoor..its getting monotonous and boringggggggggg

  4. HAWAA HAWAAI: Honest, sincere and simply Heartrending!! [3.5/5]

    Sincerity shows. Honesty pays off. And simplicity stays…in your heart, forever. If not so, how could Amole Gupte’s just another ‘underdog takes it all’ drama HAWAA HAWAAI not only manage to entertain, excite and impress you but also stirs you up with the ruthless reality we are in without being any sympathetic or sensitive about it. Though slightly superficial in novelty, HAWAA HAWAAI could definitely be seen as a charmingly emotional story of a distant relative to Stanley from Gupte’s first directorial drama STANLEY KA DABBA. Moving and deeply thought-provoking!

    HAWAA HAWAAI is all about hope. Hope that blooms and flourishes in the very odd of life where everyone else would decide to step back! After his farmer father’s unfortunate death, when Arjun Harishchandra Waghmare [Partho Gupte in a stellar-performance] – a kid with starry eyes is forced to shift to the swarming city of dreams Mumbai, he doesn’t hesitate an ounce from taking a job at local tea-vendor to offload some burden from his single mother. And there, life blesses him with a hope- a dream to fly not with some pair of wings but wheels.

    HAWAA HAWAAI is about making choices you believe in. Skating is never a profitable venture one should look up to for all his life. Lucky Bhargava [Saqib Saleem] has always been told that by his ‘the great American keeda’ brother and a skating-professional now settled as an investment banker in US, but still the choice Lucky makes to train a ‘chaiwallah’ is nothing short of chasing his own dreams cherishing now in Arjun’s eyes.

    HAWAA HAWAAI is also about having friends for life. Who would have thought a gajra-seller, a rag-picker and workers at Car service center & small-time hand-embroidery factory could ingest so much to make his friend achieve what he only can dream of! In one sequence; when asked about their individual dreams, one of them fervently replies, “ek time par ek hich sapna, pehle woh poora kar lete hain!”

    And above all, HAWAA HAWAAI is all about kids. Kids who live, act and behave in a better manner than most of the adults would do! So when a typical burger-eating rich kid offers his expensive skating kit to Arjun as he would feel proud to see him win the competition, you sure feel imparted with the emotion. Partho Gupte is the most uninhibited performer no less than any established actors in the list. The kind of sincerity and effortlessness he infuses is mesmerizing and a textbook material for anyone interested in the business. Saqib impresses with his ease and confidence. The gang of four kids sweeps away most of the lighter moments in the film but the one who deserves all the applause is Amole Gupte. His approach of handling kids with care onscreen is amazing.

    Overall; HAWAA HAWAAI is a much better film for your kids than those heavy action sci-fi superhero films despite lacking the urge of being original sometime. It may not be as fresh, new and inventive in concept as STANLEY KA DABBA but in emotions, it’s strong enough to shadow all odds like Arjun does in the movie. Watch it! [3.5/5]

  5. Hawaa Hawaai is a movie deals with young Slumdog who has big dreams in his eyes that is bundled away from crumbling chawls under the piles of garbage over the roofless homes. But this small dream is too tough enough for his battered boots. The movie is directed by Amole Gupte, while the leading cast includes Saqib Saleem and Partho Gupte. read more http://www.justbollywood.in/hawaa-hawaai-movie-review/
