Finding Fanny Review

- By Supriya Nair

Rating: ***

What the film is about: Set in a remote village of Goa, Fernando (Naseeruddin Shah) discovers that a letter he sent to the love of his life, Fanny, forty six years ago, hadn't been delivered to her. His neighbour, Angie (Deepika Padukone) persuades him to find her. The rest of the plot revolves around their quest to find Fanny along with Angie's mother in law Rosie, (Dimple Kapadia) a renowned lusty painter (played by Pankaj Kapur) who lends them a ride in his broken vintage car and Savio (Arjun Kapoor) who owns a rundown garage.

What we liked: Homi Adajania wastes no time in bringing out the plot of the film which takes us on a wild ride giving us a glimpse of the unexplored Goa. Like his previous films, Being Cyrus and Cocktail, simplicity is the hero of the film.
As dysfunctional as they were, each character pulled off their roles brilliantly and effortlessly.
The subtle nuances in the film give each character a unique quality which is hard not to miss.
This can easily be deemed as one of Naseeruddin Shah's best performances till date.
Deepika Padukone has proved once again that she doesn't need a mainstream Bollywood masala film to make an impact. Pankaj Kapoor's epic comic timing and Dimple Kapadia's high handed yet trying-to-be-modest attitude are commendable. Arjun Kapoor's casual, lackadaisical look in the film certainly worked in his favour.

What we didn't like:
The only grouse was that certain parts of the film were slightly slow which brought down the energy of the overall quirky road trip.

What to do:
With the movie's running time spanning across 1 hour and 46 minutes, the editing is crisp and concise.  In the chaos of usual Bollywood entertainers, Finding Fanny definitely stands out.
Don't miss this one.
