Kadvi Hawa: Film Review – An Unpainted Portrayal of The Bitter Reality

Kadvi Hawa: Film Review – An Unpainted Portrayal of The Bitter Reality

By Shikha Singh21 November, 2017 3 min read

Verdict: Sanjay Mishra and Ranvir Shorey give one of their best performances ever. 

From the director of I am Kalam and Jalpari, here comes another movie that will keep you hooked for straight 100 minutes and afterward. Kadvi Hawa deals with the dark effects of climate change and the lives lost because of disasters and gives you goosebumps every scene after the other.

What's Kadvi Hawa About:

Inspired by true stories, the film revolves around a nuclear family in Mahua district, a drought struck village. The lands are barren and loans are piling up causing the farmers to suicide. A blind father (Sanjay Mishra) is trying to get his son's loan off his head because he is afraid of losing his son (Bhupesh Singh). For that, he cracks a deal with the bank's recovery officer (Ranvir Shorey) who has come to the village to recover the loan money from farmers.

What Works:

The movie is based on a subject known to everyone but its effects are known only to people facing them. The movie not only shows the aftereffects but shows it in a way that it will stay with you for some time. Some scenes are too intense that you start calculating the numbers in your head to check on the loan or the recovery amount. There are little references which make the characters look like they are surviving instead of living and the sarcasm snuck behind the comedy adds to the painful reality.

Sanjay Mishra is a great actor but this is his never-seen-before performance as a blind man trying to bend hells for his son. The movie is so real that is doesn't even look like a movie. Ranvir Shorey as the recovery officer is effortless. He plays a hard-hearted yet helpless guy and owns both the faces. Tillotama Shome and Bhupesh Singh have also portrayed their role with simplicity.

Nila Madhab Panda is known for his socially relevant movies and this one is no different. He has touched upon the things that are generally overshadowed by "mainstream" news on the news channels or distracted by entertainment media. Climate change has taken thousands of lives and it is high time it is taken seriously. The director's portrayal of the situation is commendable.

What Could Have Been Better:

The movie has been shot in 30 mm and there are a few shots that look grainy. The movie slowly gets into you and the grains make the dry valleys all the more gloomy.

Why You Should Watch This Movie:

The movie depicts the effects of climate change in the rural lands of India. It portrays the bitter truth in a blatant manner leaving you speechless, making you think. If you are a person who likes dark movies that intend to bring change and are open to interpretation, this movie is a treat and a must watch.
