Hawaizaada - Movie Review

Verdict - "A failed experiment both critically and commercially."

More often than not, what do you usually envision from a biopic? Inspiration? Courage? or Creativity? A life story discloses numerous things that we're not aware of a noble personality and motivates us in several ways, but in the case of Hawaizaada which spotlights the story of Shivkar Bapuji Talpade who constructed the first aircraft, things are different. In conclusion, did it egress as a movie that the nation is proud about? I would say no!

After being abandoned by his family members, Shiv (Ayushmann), a gifted and an intellectual teenager reaps the attention of Shastri (Mithun Chakraborty), an inexplicable researcher who fantasizes about building an aircraft, as they both pair up and continue to formulate creative things like never before.

Perplexity is the main drawback of this movie and we don't really comprehend to what it's aimed for. And at long last, due to the busy screenplay, we'll not be concerned about anything happening on-screen as the main perspectives are an absolute fiasco including love, inspiration and hard work.

But on a brighter note, few technical aspects of the movie were quite remarkable. Every frame in the movie was crafted beautifully with a very precise detail when it comes to the shade and luminosity of every object. And I really do appreciate Vibhur Puri's intent to make an engaging movie with few incredible camera shots and well-written dialogues, but the story and screenplay completely ruined the movie.

Ayushmann Khurrana delivers it every time he's on-screen and his diversified personality helps him a lot. He was phenomenal in the movie, but I didn't really pay any attention to his character and that's due to the substandard writing which also messed up the other characters in the movie counting Pallavi Shrada and Mithun Chakraborty.

In conclusion, Hawaizaada is an experiment that didn't succeed in any terms and will inevitably fail both critically and commercially. This is a type of movie that you want to love and share it with your friends but ultimately, you'll end up with anger and hatred. As I stated earlier, they're few appreciative aspects which are worth mentioning, but I don't really recommend watching this movie especially in a theater.

My Rating - 2/5
Grade - C (Meh! Probably a rental)
