Review: Finding Fanny: Dull, Boring and Unenthusiastic! ½

1147th BLOG POST -->>


          Another movie that is surely going to get critically acclaimed has released- FINDING FANNY. The more power to the film has also been achieved by having Deepika Padukone as its lead actress. Other stars are no less- Naseeruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia and the new-age actor, Arjun Kapoor. Film is based in a sleepy village of Goa about which very few know about. Shah is a postman and he shares best friendship with Deepika Padukone who is a young virgin widow whose husband died on the day of the marriage. Dimple Kapadia is playing Deepika's mother-in-law. She has also gone through the same thing which Deepika has but she isn't a virgin. Arjun Kapoor couldn't marry his interest 6 years back and hence, he is back in the village to mend things. Pankaj Kapoor, his father, is a renowned painter and finds Dimple as his new muse. This is the biographies of the 5 main characters in Finding Fanny.

            Right from the start, movie looks so dull, slow and boring that it couldn't excite you. Things take place so slowly that you wish you can fast-forward and watch the climax instead of watching few scenes which have no meaning. There are few scenes which do tell some tale behind it or a story. Dialogues spoken by actors are partially good and partially bad. Bad because they try to sound clever even when it's not required in those scenes. Screenplay is simple which makes it easy for you to understand where the movie is going but still you find it unconvincing because you do not know what the movie wants to speak. I feel that Finding Fanny couldn't deliver its message to me properly or that message wasn't that great/important which I could have appreciated. 

             Naseeruddin Shah and Pankaj Kapoor are as always, mind-blowing. Dimple Kapadia is good in few scenes otherwise she is average. Arjun Kapoor has done his job extremely well in this movie. I found him suiting in his character perfectly. Deepika Padukone looks charming and wish if you could have been closer to her. That's the feel given to her character but flat dialogue deliveries makes her acting look boring. Even songs couldn't instill interest in my attitude towards movie. May be I am not that intelligent to understand this film or the genre itself is not anywhere closer to my liking. I give it .5 stars out of 5.
