“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 something new!”
When love doesn’t come knocking on your door, you go knock on its door. Out of all the valuable lessons that Finding Fanny teaches you, this one is worth taking home! Finding Fanny is the story of Angie, (Deepika Padukone) the widow of Garbo (Ranveer Singh) who stays with her mother-in-law Rosie Eucharistica (Dimple), another widow. Angie believes that no one deserves an incomplete love story, so she sets out on a road trip with her mother-in-law, her friend Savio (Arjun Kapoor), the famous painter Don Pedro (Pankaj Kapoor) and Freddi (Naseeruddin Shah) to help find Freddi’s long lost love, Stephanie Fernandes.
The first half of the movie is entertaining and two things won’t escape your notice. The first being how hot Deepika Padukone is looking and the second, how beautiful Goa is! The cinematography is nothing short of brilliant! Even though, from the look of its trailer, Finding Fanny seems to be a comedy, it’s not just that, it’s a lot more.
The second half of the movie seems to go by a lot faster than the first half and is filled with some very unexpected turn of events that leave you shocked and amused at the same time! The movie inspires you to act and seek out whatever it is that you want, instead of waiting for it to come by. By the end of the movie, you’ll manage to smile through your tears.
Whether you like this movie or not depends hugely on your taste. If you have been a lover of commercial cinema like Main Tera Hero, Om Shanti Om and Kick, Finding Fanny might not interest you that much. But if you have a taste for diverse cinema, Finding Fanny is the right pick for your palette.
All actors have done a good job, especially Dimple Kapadia who will have you in splits quite a few times during the movie. Arjun Kapoor and Deepika Padukone’s chemistry didn’t quite work for me, but separately they seem to have such a hot screen presence that that makes up for the loss of the sizzle.
