Drama

This film is a period drama set in the heart of Mumbai in Colonial India, 1895, eight years before the Wright Brothers flew the first plane. It is about a young man's struggle against all odds - his singular mission and dream of becoming the first man to fly a plane. A common man attempting to become a legend in Indian history and serve as an example to his countrymen who are struggling under British rule. Shiv Talpade has the love of a girl but not the approval of his affluent family. He is guided by his mentor Shastri but doesn't have the money to experiment with scientific methods to reach his goals. The British do not want him to get the credit for flying the first plane and become a hero to his people. The odds are stacked against him. Shiv, driven by an incredible grit, wills an impossible dream to come true. The ordinary young man becomes a hero to his friends and well wishers but in a dramatic turn of events remains an unsung hero in Indian history. 'Hawaizaada' is a work of fiction inspired by true events.
