User Reviews

The Movie appears to be a remake of a recent movie "The Change-up" (Director : David Dobkin) of 2011.
29 September 2013 | by supratimdattaSee all my reviews

"Hawa Bodol" is a good entertaining comedy. Performances of Rudranil Ghosh, Parambrata Chatterjee, Kaushik Ganguly are praiseworthy, all of them are good actors and my favorites. The story-telling is excellent and I have been amused when I first saw the movie. However, I must say, the story is not new and this movie appears to be a remake of another recent movie of 2011 – "The Change-up", Directed by David Dobkin. The story of both the movies are very same. The writers of "The Change-up" are Jon Lucas and Scott Moore while the writer of "Hawa Bodol" is Anindya Bose. Obviously, it appears that Anindya Bose is not the original writer of the story of "Hawa Bodol". No where there is any mention of its original writer. Further, the meaning of the Bengali name "Hawa Bodol" is "change of atmosphere" but the appropriate name would have been "Howa Bodol" which means "change of entity".
