While Vidya Balan was seen promoting Bobby Jasoos, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt were seen promoting Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania and Tiger Shroff and Kirti Sanon were milking their debut success of Heropanti. Here’s our scoop on who wore what: Sonal Chauhan The sultry actress chose this figure-hugging Amritraj Bora dress with mesh panelling. She looks hot from her head down to her ankles but then the sparkly Louis Vuitton peep-toes cheapen the look. Verdict: Not Hot Vidya Balan One of the few stars to choose an indian outfit, Vidya looks feminine in this Manish Malhotra Anarkali and we love her loose side-plait. Verdict: Hot Himesh Reshammiya He’s never been known for his fashion sense and here we see Himesh without his signature cap, but he still fails to »

Hawaa Hawaai Movie Review

10 May 2014 10:29 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

At first glance, this movie seems like a typical underdog-success story we have all seen on the screen so many times. But the fact that Amole Gupte has lent his magic to this venture is enough reason in itself to check out what Hawaa Hawaai is all about.

Continuing with his field of expertise, Amole brings to us yet another endearing story about children. Arjun Waghmare (Partho Gupte) at first glance is yet another chai-wala kid in Mumbai – the many Chotus and Rajus that you see daily. And like every other kid, he has dreams – dreams that no amount of hardship can break. When Arjun sets his eyes on the skates for the first time, he feels a happiness he hasn’t in a long time. But for a kid who can barely afford a meal two times a day, skating seems like a pretty expensive dream.

Undeterred, he and his gang of friends – Gochi, »

Hawaa Hawaai Music Review

27 April 2014 5:05 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

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. »

23 April 2014 12:46 AM, PDT | | See recent RealBollywood news »

Mumbai, April 23: Actor Saqib Saleem has urged audiences to desist from looking at "Hawaa Hawaai" as a children's film.

"What I can guarantee is that you will get a great content and real performances. Don't mistake it to be a children's film, a film that's not meant for you. It is for everyone," the 26-year-old said here Tuesday in an interview.

"Sorry for saying this, but if I have to draw a parallel, I loved 'Taare Zameen Par' and it's not a children's film. This film is completely different from that but this is also not a children's film. This is for everyone who has some heart and emotion in them," he added.
