Excellent change-up from the regular Bollywood fare
13 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watched this movie last night and enjoyed it completely. It is not too often that one finds a movie that is different from the standard Bollywood fare, with a cast of A-listers and is not an "art" movie. Finding Fanny truly demonstrates what our Bollywood actors (at least some of them) are capable of given the right script & director.

My salute to the director - Homi Adajania. I understand this is his second movie after Being Cyrus (which I did not see and perhaps I will try to find it now). He has managed to bring out the best in the cast. All through the movie, I enjoyed Pankaj Kapur's role the most and felt he had the best dialogs. He mannerism and way of saying "Madam" had me laughing and smiling. I still laugh when I remember his joke about the Second Coming or his references to Dimple's cat. Arjun Kapoor and Deepika Padukone have shown us another side of their acting skills that doesn't involve running around trees and capable of creating song lyrics at a moment's notice. Naseer sahib is always in a class of his own. Compare this role of his to some of his other movies e.g. A Wednesday and one can see the depth of his acting capabilities. Dimple Kapadia is wonderful - she is just as capable as most other stars. To this day, I wonder what it would have been if she had continued to act between Bobby & Saagar.

Finding Fanny is primarily about Ferdinand aka Ferdie (Naseeruddin Shah) getting a letter returned to him after 46 years. A letter he wrote to his one true love asking to marry him. Having never gotten a response from her, he decided to stay single - until the day this letter turns up at his door-step again. With the help of his friend Angie (Deepika Padukone), they decide to find Fanny (short for Stephanie) and seek out her answer. Joining them on this road trip are Mrs Eucharista (Dimple) who happens to be Deepika's mom-in-law, Don Pedro (Pankaj Kapur) the one with the car and Savio (Arjun Kapoor) as the only one in this group who can drive a car! It is just one day in their lives together on this road trip but feels like a life time spent with this odd bunch. Finding Fanny is not just about Ferdie trying to find Fanny & get her real answer but more about the different levels of relationships that exist in life and this "Fab 5" bring it alive on screen.

A touching story but told in a very humorous manner, Finding Fanny will have you laughing and smiling all through the movie. And for those reviews that ask you to "beware of this movie", ignore those warnings. Please.
