Hawa Badle Hassu is an upcoming Sci-Fi web series on environmental issues which features Chandan Roy Sanyal lands in the lead. He will portray the role of Hassu in this series. This series has also roped the actor Vikram Kochchar is in an interesting role.
Vikram portrays the role of suit-clad businessman prowling around town. He is one of Hassu’s passengers.
Talking about this actor Chandan Roy Sanyal said, “Playing Hassu was quite challenging as he defies the stereotype. An auto-rickshaw driver comes from a different background altogether roughing it out in the city, trying to make both ends meet, toiling day and night to gather up frugal savings to send back home.
This is the usual image we have in mind. Hassu, on the contrary, has a lot of worldly wisdom. He has a lot of knowledge especially on the environment and lectures his passengers on more sustainable earth. Now, this is something you don’t get every day. The contrast per se is where the challenge lies.
A lot had to be extracted from imagination, yet hinged on reality. I also went driving around Versova early morning, to get my rickshaw riding and body language right with the real autorickshaw driver, sitting behind in a role reversal.”
Talking about the series, Co-writer, and Producer of the series Handyyman’s Protiqe Mojoomder, stated, “This is a thoroughbred original idea with no reference points and so topical and urgent, that you’re surprised that very few are speaking or writing about it. Also come to think of it, Sci- Fi in our country is absolutely underexplored even on 70 mm, let alone the digital medium.
Both the aspects-the platform and the idea of Hawa Badle Hassu are unique because we are telling a tale that envisages actually saving Planet Earth from human beings and issues created by them (not aliens). It is also a genre bender with the way the climax pans out. I’m really pleased to be a part of such a refreshing project and hopeful of a really relevant conversation-starter”.
The series is flay to be an Environmental thriller let’s wait and watch what this series brings for us.
