Highway to Suva premiere

Torika Tokalau
Thursday, May 15, 2014

ADWIN Awadh is excited at the premiere of the movie Highway to Suva showing in Fiji next month.

The Fijian-born actor plays a supporting role in the movie which was entirely filmed in Fiji, particularly Nadi, Lautoka and Suva.

"It's quite exciting because the production team is from India. And the lead actors are from India but the whole dialogue of the film is spoken in Fiji Hindi," Awadh said.

"As someone who was born in Fiji, the film was a proud moment for me as it was filmed here and used the Fiji Hindi dialogue."

The movie is about a young man and woman who run away from their Nadi home to elope in Suva and their experience along the highway.

"I play Harry, a tourist from Australia who arrives into Nadi with his family. Harry wants to indulge in things he has missed when he was growing up in Fiji and he also wants his son to be exposed to the Fijian culture.

"My family travels in the same bus the two lead actors are in on the highway to Suva."

Awadh said the 90-minute film directed by Vimal Reddy was popular following its premiere in Australia.

"The word out there about the film is quite popular and it's exciting times for Fiji as the movie really promotes the country."

The film also features an iTaukei, Ratu Rakuita Tawake, who also speaks fluent Fiji Hindi in the movie.
