Now streaming: Amole and Partho on their film journey

With the successful running of their film ‘Hawaa Hawaii’ launched on May 9 the filmmakers have now uploaded two brand new behind the scenes videos of the movie on YouTube, giving a sneak peek into the making of the film, including casting Partho for the lead role and finalizing the ‘Paanch Pandavs’.

The first video depicts the journey undertaken by the father-son, director Amole Gupte and Partho Gupte, and shows their fun-filled friendship. In the video,Partho is seen talking about his father saying, “I always used to keep wondering, what is he doing, why is he sitting on that laptop and just staring at a screen and moving his fingers. I don’t remember what he was writing but I am guessing it was ‘Hawaa Hawaai’.”

 The second video features Amole Gupte who talks about his ‘four other sons’ who play the roles of Partho’s friends in the movie. Describing each kid he says, “They are not what you see them as, they are very rich actors.” Amole even says that completing these five Pandavs was in itself a daunting task but with their casting in place, he knew that 90% of the film was complete!

What’s more, ‘Hawaa Hawaai’ is now also featured on Amul’s new hoarding titled ‘Baskate of Goodies’! The hoarding features the Amul girl and her friend imitating the characters played by Partho and Saqib from the movie with the phrase “Have a….have aai….some maska”. Here, have a look!

‘Hawaa Hawaai’ is a story of the triumph of the human spirit; friendship and enjoying the journey of making one’s dream come true. The film stars Partho Gupte and Saqib Saleem. Presented by Fox Star Studios and written, produced and directed by Amole Gupte, the film is touted to be the first film on in-line skating in the world.
