Winsome but bewildering ‘Finding Fanny’ Homi Adajania’s trip to a lunatic world of loners carving niche for themselves. Five people and one destination – LOVE.
In a small place Pocolim a village in Goa Ferdie [Naseeruddin Shah] receives a letter which was undelivered to one Stefanie Fernandes [Fanny] 46 years ago on which he had proposed to her but had assumed being rejected for these many years, thus living down in the dumps. Angie [Deepika Padukone] a virgin widow living in the neibgourhood with her loathsome mother-in-law Rosie [Dimple Kapadia] persuade Ferdie to find fanny and propose her back again.
Angie who has a lost love tale with a pungent mechanic [Arjun Kapoor] convinces him to drive and borrow the vintage car from a quarrelsome and lusting artist Pedro [Pankaj Kapur] who superfluously joins them for the journey.
A chaotic five some engage into amusing events on the journey that alters their lives to different level perpetually. Will Ferdie get her lost love back; 100 minutes of a fairy tale storytelling will rekindle emotions in you and the joy of watching the veterans give their best performance.
Dimple Kapadia with her goan lingo is riotous and Pankaj Kapur’s lust is explicit with full conviction.
Deepika Padukone shines in her quintessential magnificence looks and bold talent, she outshines the inferiority of the films weakness of over indulgence in a western format.
