Hindi cinema has been exploring various subjects since the last decade or so. But climate change and global warming has gone fairly untouched from this part of the world. With Nila Madhab Panda’s Kadvi Hawa, we finally have a film based on the pressing issue. The trailer of the film was released today.

In a village school a teacher asks a student the number of seasons in India. The student replies with two — summer and winter. He eliminates monsoon from the list because it hardly rains. On the other hand, a man from Orissa says it rains a bit too much at his native place. These two scenes depicts the two extreme climatic situations in India and reveal the crux of Kadvi Hawa. 

From the trailer, it seems the film showcases the horrors of climate change without being preachy. It acts like an alarm bell urging us to act now or be ready to face the consequences. 

Sanjai Mishra has impressed with his performances in both hardcore commercial films (Golmaal series and Baadshaho) as well as realistic cinema (Ankhon Dekhi, 2014). The Kadvi Hawa trailer promises a stellar performance from the actor yet again. He plays a blind and ageing man, who is sorrowful of the present condition and nostalgic of a past that was much greener. Ranvir Shorey too looks convincing as a guy from Orissa. There is a glimpse of Tillotama Shome as well. 

Panda is known for films like I Am Kalam (2011) and Jalpari: The Desert Mermaid (2012).

Kadvi Hawa is produced under the banner of Drishyam Films, that made films like Aankhon Dekhi (2013), Masaan (2015) and Newton (2017). 

Kadvi Hawa is all set to be released on 24 November 2017.
