Rating: 4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5)

Well, Deepika Padukone’s Finding Fanny, which was being promoted well, eventually comes out. Let’s review it whether it could appeal to the masses or not. First thing first – Finding Fanny is for the metro audiences for sure because of its subject, story and the face value. The movie stars a bunch of luminous stars like Naseeruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapur and Dimple Kapadia apart from the brilliant and much-in-film business actress Deepika Padukone along with Arjun Kapoor.

Deepika has been enjoying big success since quite some time and she is ofcourse the central focus of the big banners and the producers who show interest in fetching in her on board. Her back to back successful movies have put her on the top. Let’s see if Finding Fanny too joins in the bandwagon.

Film is set in a village Pocolim in Goa. Naseeruddin Shah enacts Ferdie, the emotional man, who has lost his love. Dimple Kapadia plays Rosie – the woman with bigger assets. Pankaj Kapur is a painter called Don Pedro. Deepika Padukone is Angie, who is a ravishing widow who gets drawn to Savio D Gama (Arjun Kapoor).

Finding Fanny unzips when Ferdie learns that his love letter carrying his marriage proposal to lady love Fanny (Anjali Patil) written and posted to Fanny 46 years back was not delivered to her. Now Angie, his best pal, comes into the scene to find Fanny. From here on, the journey begins, which unfolds other sub plots in the movie.

Story is really interesting and draws your attention the moment the first scene unfolds on screen. Brawny points to Homi Adjania and Kersi Khambatta for the brilliant job. Screenplay, though carries few flaws, is fine. Editing is better. Music by Mathias Duplesy and Sachin-Jigar is catchy. Cinematography by Anil Mehta is crispy and top notch. Big points to direction – Homi Adjania, who has done such a nice job that the viewer cannot take his or her eyes off the screen throughout.

Deepika Padukone has done brilliance once again in this role of Angie. She looks charming, gorgeous and attention-grabbing in this avatar. Expectations are there for her to bag awards for her performance. Naseeruddin Shah is simply marvelous, as he is always. Pankaj Kapur is brilliant as usual. Dimple Kapadia, at places irritate, but overall looks fine. Arjun Kapoor is in his elements.

Final Verdict:

On the whole, Finding Fanny is really an entertaining cinematic stuff, which catches your attention and eyes from the moment the movie starts playing on screen. MUST-WATCH.
