Hawaizaada is the story of Shivkar Talpade, who is believed to have flown an aircraft before the Wright Brothers in 1895.
It is a epic tale of a maverick freethinker who stood against all odds to achieve his dreams. Sadly, none of that happens in Hawaizaada.
In the film, Shivkar Talpade (Ayushmann Khurrana) wants to be the first Indian to fly an airplane. So, instead of spending time and focusing on how to set a design to flight, he’s busy romancing and fighting social stigmas. Wow now that’s so cool.
Forget making a plane, our man falls in love with Sitara (Pallavi Sharda), a Lavani dancer, who does not commit to him due to differences in their social stature.
Disgustingly, the first hundred and fifty minutes of screen time is entirely focused on Shivkar Talpade wanting his first kiss.
Thankfully Sitara vanishes, but to our disappointment she comes back four years later, to find the man still hopelessly in love. She conveniently distracts him from his fight path and prompts him to sacrifice his dreams.
In all of this, we have Pandit Subbaraya Shastry (Mithun Chakraborty) looking hideous under a curly wig and a laughter that’s so fake.
One must applause Vibhu Puri for directing and penning the screenplay and dialogues of this one as he has managed to crete one of the worst disasters of 2015.
Hawaizaada is a classic example of a huge missed opportunity. The film is disastrous in more ways than one and we should not even recommend this to our enemies.
At the end of it, had Shivkar Talpade been alive, he would have never forgiven the makers of Hawaizaada for doing this to his story.
What a sham!!!
Hawaizaada is a juvenile attempt from a bunch of so called creative people who made a huge good looking set, did not know what to do with it so made t...0.5
