The first look of National-Award winning film, KADVI HAWA, a powerful take on climate change starring Sanjay Mishra, Tillotama Shome and Ranvir Shorey was unveiled by United Nations Under Secretary General and Executive Director of UN Environment, Erik Solheim
KADVI HAWA is a powerful and heartrending drama that captures the very real threat of climate change. The film stars Ranvir Shorey as a young bank loan recovery agent and Sanjay Mishra as a blind old farmer, two ordinary people fighting for survival in two extreme weather conditions, not of their making. The film also stars Tillotama Shome and Bhupesh Singh in supporting roles.
Director of the film Nila Madhab Panda (of I AM KALAM fame) is elated with the goodwill the film is already generating among audiences and policymakers alike. 'This is my little way of thinking about our Mother Earth! We all have a responsibility towards this planet. Let us spread the message of the sense of urgency that climate change is real, even though some leaders of the free world think it is a hoax. We are extremely grateful to Erik Solheim and his team at the UN, I hope with their support, we will be able to bring a change in the mindsets of people. KADVI HAWA is the most special film of my life, and I can't wait to bring it to our audiences come November.'
Erik Solheim, the Under Secretary General and Executive Director of the UN Environment Programme, says 'People feel the way we talk about the environment is too boring. An entertaining film like KADVI HAWA is a great medium to spread the message about Climate Change.'
This Drishyam Films’ KADVI HAWA is produced by Akshay Parija, Manish Mundra and is scheduled to release on November 24 this year.
