Amazing Movie! A must watch for people who love quirky off-beat films.
12 September 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

First of all, watch this Finding Fanny in English if possible & not the Hindi Dubbed version. The English version is better.

It's a niche film & if you like full on bollywood masala crap, this movie is not for you. It's for an intelligent audience. It has brilliant performance from veteran actors Naseeruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapur & Dimple Kapadia. Young actors Deepika Padukone & Arjun Kapoor surprisingly hold their own in front of these veterans, also their chemistry is very refreshing.

The screenplay & direction by Homi Adjania is quirky & amazing. I remember I was a little disappointed with his last film Cocktail because I was not expecting something like that from him after the mind-blowing 'Being Cyrus' (which again was an off-beat film). But after watching Finding Fanny I can say that he's back to being his old self which is a good thing. We need more directors like him & more intelligent cinema than mindless masala crap which bollywood serves these days.

A special mention for Deepika who not only looks breathtakingly beautiful but also gave another fine performance. After her 4 back to back superhits past year, I wasn't expecting Deepika to do a niche film like Finding Fanny but I was wrong. By doing a film like Finding Fanny which guarantees critical acclaim but not box office success, Deepika has proved that she's not here just to make money but wants to do meaningful films & give a great performance.
