Movie Review: Finding Fanny (2014)

★★★☆☆
Box Office: Flop

finding_fannyThe plot of Finding Fanny revolves around five characters Deepika Padukone (Angie) as Ranveer Singh’s (Garbo) widow, Deepika’s mother-in-law Dimple Kapadia (Rosie Eucharistica), Naseeruddin Shah (Ferdi), Arjun Kapoor (Savio) and Pankaj Kapoor (Don Pedro). Deepika plays the role of a girl who is always ready to help people and thus, Naseeruddin Shah’s dream to get his love becomes her dream too.

However, Dimple Kapadia, Pankaj Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor also join Deepika in the mission and then starts a fun journey. In the course of Naseeruddin Shah’s search for love, Pankaj Kapoor who is a self-obsessed painter develops love or rather lust for Dimple Kapadia, while Arjun and Deepika continue their romance on the other side.

Director Homi Adajania with the movie Finding Fanny has dared to offer the audience something which is very different from the contemporary Bollywood films. With a mix of young star casts like Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor and experienced actors like Naseeruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia, Being Cyrus director Homi Adajania made a quirky and totally ‘hatke’ movie in the form of Finding Fanny.

Homi Adajania’s Finding Fanny although, is not a comedy film but the movie offers several moments which will certainly bring a giggle on to your face.
