I may be wrong but something tells me that when Amole Gupte set out to make Hawaa Hawaai, it was perhaps a very different film on paper.The story is something thats totally up Guptes alley. A 12 or 13-year-old boy who falls into bad times after his fathers sudden demise and then finds a job as an assistant at a roadside tea stall. His contribution to the family income is 50 rupees per day. Even though the premise sounds sad, this boy, Arjun Harishchandra Waghmare, christened Raju by his tea stall boss, does not wallow in self-pity. He has friends, and a very interesting bunch at that. And he has a dream. Arjun, who serves tea at a roller skating academy, aspires to learn the sport and run the races someday. There is suffering peppered with optimism, a classic Amole Gupte approach to the subjects he takes up. Like his previous film Stanley Ka Dabba, Hawaa Hawaii too is set in the backdrop of child labour.

But even as the real Stanley grows up, the film fails to. ...Read full review
