Late one night, an undelivered letter is returned to postmaster and singer Ferdinand 'Ferdie' Pinto. He realizes that his one true love Stefanie 'Fanny' Fernandes never received the marriage proposal he sent to her forty-six years earlier. Angie, a young widow and Ferdie's dear friend suggests they go on a road trip to find Fanny. Joining them on the journey is Rosie, Angie's mother-in-law; and Don Pedro, an artists who is keen to paint Rosie. Driving the car is Savio, the childhood friend whose heart Angie broke six years earlier when she married another.Written by
Homi Adajania finished the script in 2009.But producer Dinesh Vijan suggested him not to make the film which would be in English language and only with 10 people.While working on Cocktail 2012 he narrated the script to Deepika Padukone and she decided to be part of the film. See more »
When Pedro is painting Rosie he asks her to bare her shoulder and she does but in the next scene right after the shoulder is covered. See more »
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.
