Amol Gupte’s Hawaa Hawaai closes NCFF
The latest edition of National Children’s Film Festival (NCFF) got over with Amole Gupte’s Hawaa Hawaai being screened on Sunday.
The 120-minute film was screened in New Delhi at the Siri Fort Auditorium. It tells the tale of a young boy, Arjun, who discovers the hidden world of in-line skating through coach Lucky, who mentors kids to become skating champions.
While Arjun starts coaching under Lucky, his four friends get together to make his dream come true for him. Arjun is played by child actor Partho Gupte, who has made his debut in the film Stanley ka Dabba while actor Saqib Saleem plays coach Lucky.
The film, which released earlier this year in May, made the audience, consisting mostly of school kids, applaud and whistle.
The three-day festival, organised by Children’s Film Society of India (CFSI), began with the inaugural lamp lighting by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley along with tennis star Sania Mirza and actor Dia Mirza followed by the screening of Seemaa Desai’s Pappu ki Pugdandi.
