Only for a niche audience!
15 September 2014 | by dragonite_fire007See all my reviews

The movie is not for everybody especially not for people who are used to the commercial capers which our dear old Bollywood is dishing out everyday!!

well with a star cast of Naseeruddin Shah and Pankuj Kapur(brothers-in-law sharing screen presence together for the first time!!) you go in with high expectations and fortunately they both deliver class performances!Dimpal Kapadia and Deepika both contribute significantly. The only wobbly performance was of Arjun Kapoor as a sulky boy but his diction was not clear at times and expression the same for most of the emotions!!

The movie is all about finding what we have lost in our lives but never had the courage to go about it to attain it. Though the dark humour and crisp editing is the movie's USP.

All in all Finding Fanny is a relief from some of the past torturous movies i had to endure!!

The cinematographer also has done a good job in capturing the picturesque Goa at its best.
