Marathi Cinema has been long solidified today by embracing the best resources and strategically depositing them where business advantage and success has been ensured. Akshara Films Division’s new release this week, ‘Huppa Huiyya…!, under the stewardship of well known film director Anil Surve makes one realize that when all is lost in the battles of life, the only ray of hope to come out of the period of adversities is by keeping the lamp of faith burning. The movie is presented by Samit Kakkad and Dream View Productions Pvt. Ltd and produced by Amar Kakkad and Pushpa Kakkad. Sachin Kakkad is the executive producer in charge.
The shooting of this comedy movie was completed in a short span of 32 days in the historic locations of Satara and Vai, a holy place situated on the banks of river Krishna. Set in rural Maharashtra ‘Huppa Huiyya…!’ takes a glance of 11 Hanuman temples, formed by Shri Ramdaas Swami. Renowned thespian Siddharth Jadhav (Hanmiya) for the first time has been showcased in the lead role by director Anil Surve.
Hanmiya is very innocent boy, son of the Sarpanch and great devotee of Lord Hanumaan who works unselfishly for the people in his village. The only lady that can make his heart melt like jelly is Girija Oak (Vasanti). The light of the divine finds Hanmiya blessed with magical power which he can use not more than 11 times. Reason, the eleven mystical powers relate to the eleven Hanuman temples as depicted in a song, also one of the most interesting parts of this film.
Music is given by Ajit Parab who holds the reputation for some of the popular numbers in movies like De Dhakka, Mee Shivajiraje Bhosale Boltoy, Shikshanachya Aaicha Gho and many more. The film is written by Hemant Edlabadkar and lyrics are by Baba Chavan. Cinematography is by A.K. Bir and Action by Javed-Aejaz. Other star cast includes Mohan Joshi, Usha Nadkarni, Ganesh Yadav, Mangesh Desai, Maansi Mangikar, Vaibhav Mangale, Kushal Badrike, Nilesh Divekar, Poonam Jadhav and a special appearance by Kashmera Shah.
In a nutshell, Huppa Huiyya makes the audience realize that things do work in our life when we listen to our inner voice. What if we are blessed with mystic powers in real life? Would one use those powers for social cause like Hanmiya or leverage it for our own selfish motives? The movie gives a good symbolic message about faith, hope and love. Marathi movie lovers would enjoy the combination of fantasy comedy which involves action as well as romance. It only shows that faith relates to our mind as much as exercise relates to our body.
