Finding Fanny is all about a road trip that if full go bumps and this spoils all the fun as there is is zero plot in the movie.
Finding Fanny challenges all basic rules of the way a Bollywood film and in turn focus on everything else but the story line. From characters to the road trip to locations; well everything is almost perfect but then there is no story and that’s where everything falls flat.
The movie begins when an undelivered love letter comes back to the sender, more than four decades after the fact and it sets into motion this little tale. Now Ferdie (Naseeruddin Shah), Rosalina (Dimple Kapadia), Don Pedro Cleto Colaco (Pankaj Kapur), Angie (Deepika Padukone) and Savio Da Gama (Arjun Kapoor) get into a car and go on a road trip. That’s Finding Fanny for you.
Savio is a friend of Angie’s dead husband Gabo (Ranveer Singh) and all he does is make faces and more faces that are sad, happy and confused.
What’s shocking is the fact that Homi Adajania has got confused mid-way into the film; suddenly from a niche film he tries to add a lot of usual Bollywood ingredients and the result is a half baked product.
Of the star cats, Arjun Kapoor makes a perfect Savio, Deepika Padukone is impressive, Dimple Kapadia shows just how easy she can be in front of the camera and what can one say about Pankaj Kapoor and Naseeruddin Shah as they are one of the finest performers we have in Bollywood today.
Finding Fanny is fashionable, trendy and looks good; but then all of it is a waste and the film may woo selected kind of audiences only.
You will enjoy Finding Fanny till the interval, but post that it becomes unbearable and all you are doing is praying to the Almighty that the film ends soon.
It's high on performances, it's high on concept but zero on script; well we are talking but the much hyped Arjun Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer F...1.5
