Hawaa Hawaai Music Review

Hawaa Hawaai is an upcoming drama starring Saqib Saleem and child actor Partho Gupte. Based on the relationship between a child and a skating coach, the film has been directed by Amol Gupte and is scheduled for release on 9 May 2014. The music has been composed by Hitesh Sonik and Amol Gupte, with the latter providing the lyrics also. So does the music to Hawaa Hawaai work? Read on to find out what we thought of it.

First up is ‘Choolhe Ke Angaarey,’ which is sung by Javed Ali. The song was really tedious for my liking and it just did not have many positive qualities that one would expect from a song. Thus, do yourselves a favour and skip this one!

Next is ‘Ghoom Gayi,’ which has been performed by the wonderful Sunidhi Chauhan. I really loved Sunidhi’s vocals in this one and delivers to perfection, which is no surprise.
