Finding Fanny Movie Review

An interesting thing about Finding Fanny is that contrary to what you think it is, the film is not a comedy: it has its light moments, with enough scenes where you cannot stop but laugh with the characters. More than anything else, this film has managed to package human emotions and philosophies in way seldom seen happening in Bollywood.

There is a story, of course, and it is naturally that of a goose-chase: for isn’t all fanny-finding, any hunt for skirt, ultimately a great big shot in the dark? But this 93-minute gem isn’t about plot. It is about these wonderfully whimsical characters and about the mood they inhabit. It is about novelistic narration and cinematography that appears tinted by Instagram. And, perhaps more than anything else, it is about English that is as broken as the characters.

Finding Fanny will take you on a very different journey that you will no doubt love. But the point is, do you like being taken down unfamiliar roads? Finding Fanny is not your regular Bollywood entertainer. It’s a film which reminded me of how it felt to read a story written by Marquez. It’s full of nostalgia; it’s about unusual characters and their unusual experiences. If you like satires, if you like dark humour and if you like films which are subtle then don’t miss it.

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.

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.

Deepika as a widow is fantastic. She doesn’t over somber on the demise of her husband Gabo (Ranveer Singh) and hers is the character who helps Ferdie find his love. Angie loves pampering all and Deepika’s act brings out the right expression for the role. Arjun Kapoor as a hot headed car mechanic too is in the right form. As a frustrated and heart-broken Savio he does enough justice to his character. Pankaj Kapoor is phenomenal. While wooing the Rosalina Eucharistica as he calls her "Rosie", Pankaj is lustfully humorous. On the other hand, he is blind-folded and mad when it comes to painting as he accepts no negotiation even if it requires ‘Rosie’ to stand like a statue in the scorching heat for all day long. Naseeruddin Shah as a shy and introvert lover looks innocent and brilliant. He loves singing as Deepika quotes him ‘a man with a golden voice’, but that justifies him only until he croons alone. Watching Dimple Kapadia in this form is sheer pleasure. She loves donning those tight skinned clothes and is loud in her approach. Take on this road trip along with the fantastic five and discover the little but essential philosophies of life.
