Do you ever wonder what it would be like to fly? Then see "Hawaizaada", a film that soars into the skies with its overweening ambitions and miraculously manages to stay airborne as it chronicles the life a man who wanted to fly.



Debutant director Vibhu Puri's very accomplished film, a tribute to the scientist who apparently manned the first aircraft that civilizations has ever flown, is a stunning feast of visual splendour, compounded with a script that's tightly and judiciously written to accentuate the audacity and eccentricity of people who can float in the future.



Straightaway it can be said with great pride that Vibhu Puri's debut is a homage to the art and visual aesthetics of Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Every frame is reminiscent of several Bhansali creations, notably "Devdas" and "Saawariya", the former for the theme of unfulfilled love (with Khurana's capricious love interest Pallavi Sharda forming a fusion of Paro and Chandramukhi's two-layered character from Devdas) and the latter for the rich bold use of flamboyant colours to highlight the heightened opera-styled emotions.
