Spoilers AlertAt first blush, the plot premise of Hawaa Hawaai may sound unpromising and hackneyed. But the film has just enough wind in its sails to make it across the finish line with some effort to spare. To put it in one line, the film is about a lu

So while Hawaa Hawaai isn’t entirely satisfying, I still recommend that you see it. It is a timely reminder of the intractable horrors that children in this country face on a daily basis.

Rajeev Masand
His name is Arjun Harishchandra Waghmare (Partho Gupte), but the tea stall owner who has employed him calls him Raju. It’s convenient that way, even if undignified. The boy, who should ideally be in school, will now work there 10 hours a day if not more.

Yahoo India
Amol Gupte's grip over how children think, behave and feel is far beyond any other director in the film industry. Which is why his films, though about children, are never actually childish.
First Post
Instead of a sentimental cinema with a positive message Amole Gupte's 'Hawaa Hawaai' is a squirmingly squishy so predictable unconvincing forced sentima (read cinema) that lacks the stamina to please the major or concerned audience.

A wi wiwi wiwi wiwi.. it's so wannabe.. a perfect case of tout more robust than its clout.. Amole Gupte's next after Stanley Ka Dabba (overeaten by frogs in the well type critics and left over by the audience) comes a squirmingly squishy, so predictable, unconvincing, forced sentima (read cinema) that tries so hard to fly but fails to even take off resulting in an ultimately unclassifiable piece of work that neither entertains nor enlightens.

If the 2011 release Stanley Ka Dabba filmmaker Amole Gupte struck a chord with you then, you will be impressed with Hawaa Hawaai too. Having mastered the art of working with kids, Gupte once again has his son playing the lead.
