It’s been just few days to the release of Hawaizaada trailer, which happens to be the biopic a great scientist called Shivkar Bapuji Talpade. He is the man who was first to created the first unnamed plane in India. In other words, its a biopic and frankly Bollywood is still naive in making quality biopics except the few including Farhan Akhtar starrer movie Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. Now, you have Ayushmann Khurana playing the role of the Indian scientist. Well, about watching any pre-independence vintage movies like this can be treat to our minds and eyes, well its yet to prove that this film also falls in the same category.
Now talking about the trailer of this movie, it’s inevitable with the story of a man with nerdy character who has lofty dreams of creating one of the first unmanned flying machine. However the kind of opposition he faces from his close ones and even the establishments who happens to be the British can be worthy stuff to watch. The movie has the elements of patriotism, which seems to have sprinkled, while the movie is keen to focus to give exposure to a number of unsung heroes whom common people still fail to recognise. Though the plot of the movie sounds very much promising, but talking about the presentation, it goes very much dull and cartoonish. The trailer fails to take the audience back to the colonial rule, which is indeed a matter of big dismay.
Perhaps by giving Ayushmann Khurana and old and nerdy looks with colonial style attires will not suffice to impress the audience or critics. On the other side you have Mithoon Chakraborty who is seen narrating the character to his boss is indeed a treat to watch, while talking about Pallavi Sharda, she is plainly present to increase the glam quotient in the film. Much of the efforts have been put over the visual aspects, which is indeed a daunting experience, however, the dialogues remains very much trite for the plot. In respect of creating movie on a high commercial note, the trailer seems very much theatrical feel that appears to be very much over dramatic.
Lastly, talking about the stories of such kind, it is really vital to catch right and relevant tone apart from taking care of the factual issues simply avoid them. The real litmus test of the movie will only come into picture when it hits the theatre and run smoothly without any controversy being created on the factual aspects of the movie unlike the way the other biopic movies have faced so far. If the filmmakers are able to stick to the right plot of the biography of this great scientist and Ayushmann Khurana is successful in portraying unsung hero of India the right way, the movie would fail to work for all.
