Finding Fanny Hindi Movie Review

Ratings:3/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN

 Sprinkled liberally with uproarious humor, the film makes some rather predictable points about love, straining its already-thin premise. Set in a world that feels entirely authentic, Finding Fanny is a charming film that starts off slowly but draws you into its drama. At a crisp 105 minutes, it’s a perfectly satisfying watch unlike so many disposable comedies today. I’m going with three out of five.

On the whole, Finding Fanny is a cute entertainer but it has appeal for the class audience only, that too, in the big cities only. It will do well in very select multiplexes of the major cities mainly. But its business in lesser multiplexes, single-screen cinemas and in centres other than the big cities will be very dull. Overall, the film will garner critical acclaim but its economics will not bring a smile on anybody’s face. The English version will fare far beter than the dubbed version.

But, made in a land of Hindi genre movies and starring one of Bollywood’s glitziest girls, Finding Fanny is bold enough already. It gives us much, much to smile pleasantly at, to guffaw at, and one moment that will make the theatre gasp — before it brings the house down.Drink in the originality and the swiftly economical storytelling.

Ratings:3.5/5 Review By: Meena Iyer Site: Times Of India (TOI)

Finding Fanny is funny, dark, yet bright, a shimmering ride through a Goa far from the tight-rooted Trikal, the touristy Dil Chahta Hai. Its drama keeps surprising – but also meanders, including around an overacting Russian and an unnecessarily macabre cat. It evokes an Almodovar-Anderson-Marquez-in-Goa feel, but occasionally, its cleverness grows obvious while little details – catch the changing colours of Ferdie’s petrol can – are overlooked.However, these are small creases on an otherwise scrumptious cake. Move your fanny for this one. For the most part, it is utterly, bitterly delicious

On the whole, it is commendable on the part of Fox and Dinesh Vijan to have diligently backed this project. With a big name like Deepika Padukone getting associated with this film and then Arjun Kapoor (scoring well at the Box Office) bringing in eye balls too, FINDING FANNY has enough curiosity around it. If you’re tired of the nonsensical fare doled out by Bollywood week after week and have a palate for Unusual-Entertainment, then FINDING FANNY will fill your heart with joy.

For most part of this film, a bunch of fantastic actors are together in a frame, sitting in a blue beaten car, presumably to find Fanny but largely to give us a delightful dollop of entertainment. The best thing about this screwball comedy is that Homi Adajania has evidently made it purely for the fun of it and not as a desperate bid to play to the gallery. Imagine spending a night in a shack on a beach in Goa, drinking your poison and sharing mad jokes with friends all night. Watch this one for a slice of that kind of experience.

Some of our Bollywood fans (those hungry for masala in theatres) might find the movie a little slow, more so in the first half. Uncoventional in several ways — from the ending to the catharsis for the characters, the movie might not be ‘entertaining’ for conventional fans. If Bollywood entertainment masala or love story is what you seek, Finding Fanny is certainly not your pick. If you are up for a slow, light-hearted take on life, love and their philosophies, book your tickets NOW.

When the going is good, it is excellent.Trouble is, the film is patchily quirky. An undelivered love letter comes back to the sender, more than four decades after the fact, and it sets into motion this little tale, which leaves you both smiling, when the whimsy is just right, and impatient, when it turns flatly prosaic

Finding Fanny is not a regular Bollywood film, it’s for a very niche audience.To pull this off and make it entertaining is not easy, but it’s clear he is an extremely talented filmmaker. If you are up for watching something different then go and watch Finding Fanny, you won’t be disappointed.

Much like the niche-bending Delhi Belly, the mere existence of Finding Fanny is a minor miracle. For this, the producer must be acknowledged. This film is exactly the kind of brave clutter-breaking effort that most critics wish for while lamenting the rigidness of mainstream stars. That it left me grinning long after the credit-roll is a testament to its ability to amuse, without resorting to gimmicky slapstick or toilet humour.

It is not often that I can recommend a film with this confidence. Finding Fanny was an exhilarating film that is consistently enjoyable. From the first scene to the last, my smile stayed. Full of unexpected moments, filled with cheeky delight and a bold approach, this isn’t the kind of film you’ll get very frequently.

  1. Hello Gaurav, just wanted to touch base from last time. When would you be able to start including the rating kid-friendliness details. Thanks.

    -Amish

  2. GOOD MOVIE….. HOPE IT WOULD BE HIT LIKE QUEEN.

  3. Found the movie quite borring. Avoid watching.

  4. Did not like it.

  5. FINDING FANNY is an enthralling flick which is unusual yet delightful, dark yet appealing, funny yet not over the top and entertaining yet not in the typical bollywoodish manner. Finding Fanny, breaks the mould of stereotype cinema right from the first scene and treads on its own path taking you on a different cinematic journey. For my detailed review, please visit http://rohitmoviereview.blogspot.in/

  6. The Indian film makers are often seen experimenting with their subjects, something which is definitely required in the odds of masala hindi cinema. Remember, Homi Adajania’s ‘Being Cyrus’? I am sure you don’t because the film never got so popular. Nevertheless, Homi is back, with a pretty similar type of direction, with his new release ‘Finding fanny’.

    Ferdie (Naseeruddin Shah), the head postman of Pocolim (a village near Goa), receives a letter one night, which he had written 46 years back to the love of his life, Stephanie (Fanny) Fernandes. Ferdie soon gets disheartened by the fact that he could not confess his feelings to Fanny because the letter never reached her. Angie (Deepika Padukone), a young widow and also Ferdie’s best friend, decides to help him to track his lost love. On this trip, they are accompanied by Savio (Arjun Kapoor), an old friend of Angie’s, Rosie (Dimple Kapadia), Angie’s mother in law, and Don Pedro (Pankaj Kapur), an international painter who finds his inspiration in Rosie.
    Would they ever be able to find Fanny Fernandes?

    Finding Fanny, though being unconventional, remains to be pretty boring on the whole. The film moves with such a slow pace that you tend to lose your patience with time. Homi has tried his best to keep a taste of dark humor but that never seems sufficient to bear this 100 minute long drama.
    The film only picks up in the last twenty minutes which gets too late.

    Naseeruddin Shah and Pankaj Kapur would be my pick of the performances from the film. Wow, you don’t get to see such sincere performances everyday! Dimple Kapadia does not disappoints you either. Though they didn’t act badly, but I have to keep Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor at the bottom of my list in terms of the performances.

    Overall, Finding Fanny remains to be a film supported by some brilliant performances but let down by poor writing. I wish the whole film could have been as good as its climax.

    Rating- 2/5
