Bhubaneswar: Odisha-born film maker Nila Madhab Panda is coming up with another project “Kadvi Hawa” that highlights the plight of global climate change, which has become a matter of concern for all the countries in the world. Even the world leaders gathered recently to sign the Paris Agreement under United Nations Frame work Convention on Climatic Change (UNFCCC) and several countries have already ratified it.
Panda who has won national award for his film “I am Kalam” said that he had been working on this story for last few years. My story is based on true events of drought prone Bundelkhand region and the vanishing villages of coastal Odisha.
“The film is about a blind old man and a young bank loan recovery agent, ironically both coming from two extreme weather conditions and having zero contribution to the global climate change, fight for their survival,” said Panda. The project is in the final stage of post-production and would be released next year.
Kadvi Hawa boasts of senior actors like Sanjay Mishra, Ranvir Shorey, Tilottama Shome, Bhupesh and others. The film is shot in celluloid at a time when all the movie makers prefer digital medium. Renowned cinematographer Ramanuja Dutta is the DOP for the film.
