Finding Fanny Review
Homi Adajania's Finding Fanny although, is not a comedy film but the movie offers several moments which will certainly bring a giggle on to your face.
All in all, the movie Finding Fanny is a refreshing break from typical Bollywood ‘masala' flicks.
Not to say that Finding Fanny is flawless. 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.
Drink in, then, the grainy blue skies and the utter timelessness, for this film could be set in 1984, 1965 or tomorrow. Drink in the characters we (and the actors, clearly having a blast) could use more of. Drink in the originality and the swiftly economical storytelling.
Drink it all in, and order seconds just as you would at Mondegar, without worrying about the cheque. Because — as Don Pedro teaches us — sometimes we just need a new drink in a marvellous old bottle.
This is an offbeat cinema and don’t expect a Singham Returns or Kick here. Also, the language could be a barrier as the entire film is in English. The producers are also releasing a Hindi version of the film, which might attract a larger audience.
If you like to watch offbeat cinema, and you loved Lunch Box and Ship of Theseus, then Finding Fanny is your treat for the weekend. But the lovers of a typical Bollywood masala film should give it a miss.
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.
