I love this movie
8 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like this movie specially gentle sex scene by ghost with taboo. I think this is the best scene sex in Indian movie history. this is copy of English movie but still good to watch ...........................................................go for itGuddu Dhanoa's "Hawa" clearly takes an inspiration from "The Enity"(1981)and "Poltergeist"(1982).The cinematography is excellent and the film is well-directed and acted.Tabu who has just taken a divorce returns to her bungalow in Manali.With her are her two daughters,a dog and her brother(Imran Khan).Soon Tabu,her dog and brother begin to see an invisible spirit.The dog disappears and he returns only dead.The spirit falls for Tabu and rapes her.She meets a doctor(Shabhaz Khan)who doesn't believe that she is molested by an invisible spirit.Tabu is raped repeatedly.She desperately tries to find the truth about her invisible assailant."Hawa" is a good piece of Hindi horror.The rape scenes are not graphic,but they are actually a bit disturbing.The film is creepy,so fans of Hindi horror won't be disappointed.Highly recommended.8 out of 10.
