Finding Fanny

Critics Review


Patchy Road Ahead.

Finding Fanny is the kind of a film that is right up Wes Anderson�s alley- quirky, populated by seriously crazy characters bound by a singular event that otherwise should not be as life changing as it is in the film. However Homi is no Anderson and Finding Fanny hence suffers from a lack of mastery in pulling off a film with this much quirk in it. At one hour forty minutes running time Finding Fannnny is crisp. Yet there are many moments in the film when you look at the watch and hope things hasten up. Homi Adjania is back in his Being Cyrus mode but has not really been able to shrug off the Cocktail effect. A little more practice may be and we could have a home grown Anderson. (more)

Finding Fanny is a delightful take on life and love

Based in a Goan village, Angie (Deepika) plays Garbo's (Ranveer) widow, and lives with her mom-in-law Rosie Eucharistica (Dimple), another widow. Like any other small village, being closely knit here too means that everybody makes whatever is happening in other's lives their own business.Happy in her own space, Angie loves helping others and sets out on the task of getting Ferdi (Naseeruddin) the love of his life. Only, she is accompanied by everyone else -- her mom-in-law, Savio (Arjun) and a painter Don Pedro Cleto Colaco (Pankaj) who has found his muse in Rosie on the fun-trip that the movie traces. - (more)

Finding Fanny is for a very niche audience

Cocktail and now Finding Fanny Homi Adajania's filmography is quite a cocktail. To pull this off and make it entertaining is not easy, but it's clear he is an extremely talented filmmaker. If you are up for watching something different then go and watch Finding Fanny, you won't be disappointed. (more)

The most part, it is utterly, bitterly delicious.

Finding Fanny is funny, dark, yet bright, a shimmering ride through a Goa far from the tight-rooted Trikal, the touristy Dil Chahta Hai. Its drama keeps surprising - but also meanders, including around an overacting Russian and an unnecessarily macabre cat. It evokes an Almodovar-Anderson-Marquez-in-Goa feel, but occasionally, its cleverness grows obvious while little details - catch the changing colours of Ferdie's petrol can - are overlooked. However, these are small creases on an otherwise scrumptious cake.(more)

FINDING FANNY is almost exactly what he must have visualized.

It is commendable on the part of Fox and Dinesh Vijan to have diligently backed this project. With a big name like Deepika Padukone getting associated with this film and then Arjun Kapoor (scoring well at the Box Office) bringing in eye balls too, FINDING FANNY has enough curiosity around it. If you're tired of the nonsensical fare doled out by Bollywood week after week and have a palate for Unusual-Entertainment, then FINDING FANNY will fill your heart with joy.(more)

Finding Fanny is wickedly fantastic

Finding Fanny plunges boldly and determinedly into this port-wine patois, and strikes gold. Every minute is silly, unexpected, cheeky.Drink it all in, and order seconds as you would at Mondegar, without worrying about the cheque. Because -- as we ought learn from Don Pedro -- sometimes we just need a new drink in a marvelous old bottle.(more)
