Kadvi hawa is a movie demonstrating problems faced at individual level due to global issue: THE GLOBAL WARMING.
Gunu Baba (Ranvir Shorey) is a cruel loan recovery agent. He claims a few lives in the movie owing to his recovery tactics that lead to a few farmers committing suicide. Portraying the negative lead in the movie, he is hated by everyone. He still has a sober side of him after all he is just doing his job. The real culprit is not Gunu Baba but Global warming that leads to repetitive crop failures.
The film progresses with story of one such debt ridden farmer Mukund (Bhupesh Singh) whose father Hedu ( Sanjay Mishra) fears his son’s suicide. Hedu is a blind man who negotiates a deal with Gunu Baba to save his son.
He ploys against his fellow farmers and leaks information to Gunu whenever anybody in the village gets hold of any money. These tip offs makes Gunu strike at the right time to recover the money. The relief of Hedu for his son comes at a cost of guilt. Till when can he hold the guilt before breaking down is the movies real strength which engrosses the reviewers. The dark comedy makes viewers laugh but simultaneously gives a very serious message. Global warming has lingering effects at grass root levels.
Sanjay Mishra is effortless as ever even as a blind man and Ranvir Shorey played the character of a grumpy recovery agent pretty well. The movie is an overall good watch with a sincere take home message. It brings us closer to the rural life and brings us issues of our farmers in a captivating way. I give 3.5 stars out of 5 to the movie aptly titled Kadvi Hawa and recommend it highly to our viewers.
