Another tale of a Father-Daughter relationship portrayed beautifully by Anil Kapoor and Pihu Sand in ‘Fanney Khan’. It is a movie about dreams, goals, passion and how far a father is willing to go in order to fulfill his daughter’s dreams. It is more than just a girl dreaming about becoming a sensational singer like her role model ‘Baby Singh’, it’s about how challenging it is for a girl who doesn’t fit into societal ‘measurements’ of the world.
Anil Kapoor was more than brilliant in this film, adopting the ‘Hyderabadi’ language and accent, he was spot on with his performance as a father who’s dreams changed when his daughter was born. He starts to see his dreams for his daughter to be a world famous singer just like ‘Lata Mangeshkar’ and hence names her Lata. This role essayed by Anil takes it to a all new heights, if you plan to watch this one, do it for Anil Kapoor because he is simply phenomenal.
Watch the trailer here:
The role model Lata has in her life is Baby Singh portrayed by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Aishwarya is a born diva and that’s a proven fact, so to see her as an amazing singer who’s everyone’s favorite is refreshing. Her chemistry with RajKumar Rao is something new and adorable. The quirky jokes between them and the stages of growing friendship brings lightness to the movie. Filled with emotional scenes and jokes, Aish-Rajkumar were perfectly casted for this movie!
Pihu Sand, daughter of ‘Fanney Khan’, a failed artist who couldn’t be bigger than a lead singer of an orchestra band, dreamed bigger than ever. She wants to be a world famous singer but her being an over-weight is a laughing point for the audiences and their crude remarks pull her spirits down. But her father always cheered the loudest which makes her embarrassed even more so and thus the usually shown beautiful father-daughter relationships in movies, isn’t so beautiful in this one.
How the events fold, when the father loses his job and is left helpless in gathering money for his daughter’s album, but luck knocks on his door when Baby Singh hails for his cab and the story takes a new turn there. As seen in trailer, Anil and Rajkumar kidnap her in hopes that the ransom money will pay for his daughter’s dream but it isn’t so easy as it looks and to find out what makes it so emotional and whether Lata achieves her dream is what you need to go to the theatres for!
A full package of family drama, high end dreams, over weight burden of miseries and lots of laugh is what Fanney Khan
is all about.
We give it 4 stars with a huge kink.
