A simple film with a threadbare plot line – Finding Fanny


Your heart longs to watch a Hindi film where the area matters, where the stars stay inside the parameters of their characters, where the cleverness goes the distance ordinary circumstances, where the dialog feels genuine along these lines do the feelings. It doesn’t happen frequently, however when it does, its a foundation for festival. Finding Fanny is one such film. It’s a basic film with a frayed plot line – a gathering of loners travel together looking for lost adoration. At the same time because of some superlative acting, you overlook how thin the plot is and submerge yourself in the lives of the characters.

Naseeruddin Shah plays Ferdie, a kid like postmaster of a curious languid backwater of Goa called Pocolim. He gets back a letter he had presented 46 years on the affection of his life Stefanie “Fanny” Fernandes (Anjali Patil). His closest companion Angie (Deepika Padukone), a 26 year old dowager, who lives with her widowed relative Rosalina “Rosie” Eucharistica (Dimple Kapadia), encourages him to search out his truant affection. A painter looking for a muse, Wear Pedro Cleto Colaco (Pankaj Kapur) and Angie’s youth love Savio Da Gama (Arjun Kapur) join this diverse fleeting trend. What takes after is a street trek that makes the characters relearn some merciless truths furthermore familiarizes them with changing flow of their associations with one another in the meantime.

Naseer and Pankaj are prepared veterans and expectedly bolster off one another. One of best lines in the movies is when Wear Pedro flourishingly portrays Freddie as the Casanova Of Konkan. While Naseer brings out all the peculiarities of a timid, loner significant other, Pankaj is a hoot as the over-the-top painter. His release of his “muse” Dimple after he completes her painted creation is piercing and slyly outlines the heart of a painter in the meantime. Dimple shows what a fine performer she is – her boasting Goan close relative act, where her extreme outer surface conceals an unstable persona is one of her best screen versions in this way. The adolescents, Arjun and Deepika are the genuine amazement. Arjun plays Savio, the driver, repairman and vigorous affection with the boast his character merits and is from time to time out of pace with the veterans. Deepika overflows trust in every edge. She stands her ground against everybody and indicates how great a performing artist she could be in the hands of a proficient executive. It’s her film more than anybody else’s.

In the wake of Being Cyrus and Mixed drink, chief Homi Adajania has apparently hit his stride. The cinematography by Anil Mehta is world-class thus is the music by Mathias Duplessy and Sachin-Jigar. Go watch the film for its abundance of particular characters managing commonplace emergency and rising wealthier simultaneously. It will without a doubt put a grin to your face, if nothing else………
