Verdict: Finding Fanny is quirky, fun, fresh but certainly not for everyone. Deflecting from "masala cinema", Homi Adajania and the cast inject a dose of beautiful madness onto the screen. A must for those who want to watch so...more

Finding Fanny Review - Fanny Found - In the pink of health!Sep 16, 2014NewsLife is not always measured by its story but sometimes the characters that surround it. Homi Adajania's Finding Fanny is all about those imperfect characters who are searching for that inch of perfection in their lives.   The story is set in an Goan village called Pocolim where an old postman Ferdie (Naseeruddin Shah) discovers that the letter he wrote to her lover had never been delivered and thus after 46 years, embarks a journey to find her long lost lover Fanny and express his feelings to her. To motivate him is a young widow Angie (Deepika Padukone) , her mother-in-law Rosie (Dimple Kapadia), Savio (Arjun Kapoor) and a well-renowned painter Don Pedro (Pankaj Kapoor).    Outstanding performances by the all the five actors, especially by the trio of Pankaj Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah and Dimple Kapadia who yet again proved their supremacy. Deepika Padukone looked stunning and was a perfect fit for Angie. Arjun Kapoor too suited the role of Savio and did complete justice to it. The small but interesting role of a priest by Anand Tiwari is also worth looking out for.   Technically a masterpiece by Homi Adajania with a brilliant cinematography and a very apt background score by Mathias Duplessy and Sachin-Jigar. The detailing and characterization is amazingly done by Homi and a great effort by him to pull off a movie like this one in the times of complete masala flicks.   Finding Fanny is certainly not for those looking for a great story or the usual masala elements. Only a few will be able to actually find Fanny and appreciate its freshness and originality.  Divay Agarwal Finding Fanny Review - Fanny Found - In the pink of health! Sep 16, 2014
