Finding Fanny Movie Full Review And Rating :
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 very entertaining. Goa looks a lot more beautiful than what we have usually seen. The cinematographer is nothing short of brilliant! 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 Chennai Express or 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.
Rating : 3.5/5
All actors have done a fabulous job. My favorite of the five is Pankaj Kapoor, who didn’t even had a necessary role as per screenplay, is just OUTSTANDING!
-> Naseerudin Shah is very lovable and cute.
-> Deepika is also good but she shines in narrating the story.
-> Arjun Kapoor is revelation. He should try more roles like this.
-> And finally, Dimple Kapadia. She should be applauded for accepting such kinda role that not everyone can play and she is fantastic.
Background score is very good. And finally, the immensely talented director, Homi Adjania deserves the maximum credit for what he has delivered. One needs to be very creative in order to tell a dark and emotional story in an entertaining way. And he does a fab job.
Finding Fanny is the best movie Bollywood has produced this year since QUEEN!
Final word : Highly recommended
