My Gut Feel and comments:
Amol Gupte is a sincere and hardworking creative professional who has done some quality work as both actor and director. His current offering seems to be no different and I am optimistic that hawaa hawaai would be a good movie which talks about the dream and the dreamer’s journey.
This movie seems to be a sincere efforts to bring a simple story effectively on screen which would be motivational still grounded in nature. Amol Gupte has done a great job as creative director and screenwriter of Tare Zameen Par and as a director of Stanley Ka Dabba and I am sensing a good quality product as Hawaa Hawaai. If this would have been released during school summer breaks it would have been better as the story is of a young boy chasing his dream and would have get more audience as compare to now. It is a low budget movie so recovering the investment should not be an issue.
I am giving this movie 3.5 stars out of 5 stars, five days before the release.
