Hawaizaada Movie Review: Ayushmann Khurrana’s hawai jahaz fails to take off
The film is based on Indian scientist Shivkar Bapuji Talpade who is credited to have constructed India's first unmanned plane. The movie is set in Mumbai, 1895.
How is the direction?
Hawaizaada is Vibhu Puri’s directorial venture of which you get a clear idea once you watch the film. There are many slots in the film which will remind you of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s direction. Also, the film kind of strays away from its main subject and gets carried away in the direction of love and romance. There is too much of love between the lead characters in the film which is actually trying to create nation pride among the audience.
How is the acting?
Ayushmann Khurrana fits the role of Shivkar with much ease. He has managed to do a decent job but the film is certainly not his big ticket. Mithun Chakraborty too has proved his mettle as an actor in the role of Shivkar’s mentor. Pallavi Sharda, as the dancer, serves mostly as a prop to anchor the totally irrelevant romantic subplot in the film. But that's not to say she didn’t do a good job. Pallavi has managed to do a decent job with her character in the film.
To watch or not?
The film is a straight one time watch. There is nothing exceptional or starry that would keep you glued to your seats. It is worth a watch for people who are more interested in knowing about Shivkar Talpade than people who just want to have a good time.
After much anticipation, Hawaizaada featuring Ayushmann Khurrana, Pallavi Sharda and Mithun Chakraborty in the lead roles was released in the cinema halls today.
