Directed by acclaimed filmmaker (Padmashree) Nila Madhab Panda (of I am Kalam fame), Kadvi Hawa is a powerful and heartrending drama that captures the very real threat of climate change. The film stars Ranvir Shorey as a young bank loan recovery agent and Sanjay Mishra as a blind old farmer, two ordinary people fighting for survival in two extreme weather conditions, not of their making. The film also stars Tillotama Shome (Death In The Gunj, Hindi Medium) and Bhupesh Singh (Hum Tum, Masaan).
Nila Madhab Panda, the director of Kadvi Hawa says “We have tried to make the film as eco-friendly as possible, as we all have a responsibility towards this planet. Let us spread the message of the sense of urgency that climate change is real, even though some leaders of the free world think it is a hoax!”

Manish Mundra, the founder of Drishyam Films and producer of Kadvi Hawa, agrees ” In times like these if politicians like Donald Trump don’t take climate change seriously, then we’re in deep trouble. Kadvi Hawa is an important film of our times and we can’t wait to bring it to our audiences.”

Producer Akshay Parija adds, “It is an Indian story relevant to the whole world.”

Also supported by the Shakti Foundation, Kadvi Hawa will release in cinemas across India on 24th November, 2017. The film is produced by Akshay Parija, Manish Mundra and Nila Madhab Panda.
