Odia Producer Akshay Parija Hindi Film” Kadvi Hawa” has been selected for screening 2017 Indian Panorama segment.

Newdelhi: 9/11/17:Indian Panorama 2017 today announced its final selection of Feature & Non-Feature films to be screened in Goa at 48th International Film Festival of India, 2017 which is scheduled to take place from 20th to 28th November, 2017.


Five Mainstream films have also been selected under Indian Panorama Section of 48th International Film Festival of India, 2017. Hindi Film Kadvi Hawa has been selected   for screening in at 48th International Film Festival of India, 2017 in Indian Panorama segment.

Hindi Film Kadvi Hawa, helmed by Odia director and National Award winner Nila Madhab Pandaan d Produced by NRI Odia  Akshay Kumar Parija, a Dubai based film-maker. The film is set against the backdrop of Bundelkhand’s terrain, and deals with issues such as drought and climate change.

Kadvi Hawa revolves around a visually-impaired old man and a young bank loan recovery agent played by actors Sanjay Mishra and Ranvir Shorey respectively. Through the film, Panda lays stress on the fact that the farmers of Bundelkhand are the ones who have a next-to-nothing contribution to the increasing carbon-footprint of human beings, yet they are the ones who suffer the most.

Speaking about this, Panda told ODISHA NEWS TIMES, “They don’t even have electricity. There are one or two motorcycles but the largest farmer suicides are happening in Marathwada and Bundelkhand. There is so much pressure of loan that a couple of crop failures take the farmer to the brink. At a time when the Paris Agreement on climate change is still being debated, the film can help build a dialogue.”

Like his previous films, I Am Kalam, Kaun Kitney Paani Mein, Kadvi Hawa also delves into the world of the poor and presents globally relevant issues through the lens of destitution. Speaking about his inclination towards this subject, the director further adds, “For years, so-called art house cinema has presented the poor as bechara living a wretched life. My point is people living in penury also have their little joys. There is a beauty in poverty as well. The poor knows that he can’t become an Ambani, but he also knows that both he and Ambani pray to the same God (sic).”

Kadvi Hawa also stars Ranvir Shorey and Tilottama Shome. The film also got a Special Mention at the 64th National Awards held in 2017. Kadvi Hawa has been produced by Akshay Kumar Parija,Manish Mudra and Nilamadhab Panda. Akshya Parija  told in his reaction “ I   am glad to work with the Padmashree Awardee, Nila Madhab, and that too on a very pertinent subject of present day effects of World Climatic Change. The recent Paris Agreement under United Nations Framework Convention on Climatic Change (UNFCCC) is a great initiative for combating this situation. I have full confidence that through Panda’s celluloid tale, awareness will be created on this explosive problem in the world”
