Movie Review & Rating: Finding Fanny

Movie Review: Finding Fanny
Five Goans set off on a road trip looking for an old postman's adolescence love, Stefanie "Fanny" Fernandes, however no one knows whether she's alive or dead or simply an invention of somebody's imagination. In any case, the companions get lost, and the adventure - initially expected to take 20 minutes - rather takes one and a half days. In case you're searching for love… get lost! Bollywood's superstar Deepika Padukone features a rock n' roller cast.

Discovering Fanny is one such film. It's a basic film with a beat up plot line – a gathering of loners travel together looking for lost love. Yet on account of some superlative acting, you overlook how thin the plot is and drench yourself in the lives of the characters.

Naseeruddin Shah plays Ferdie, a tyke like postmaster of an interesting languid backwater of Goa called Pocolim. He gets back a letter he had presented 46 years on the love of his life Stefanie "Fanny" Fernandes (Anjali Patil). His closest companion Angie (Deepika Padukone), a 26 year old widow, who lives with her widowed mother by marriage Rosalina "Rosie" Eucharistica (Dimple Kapadia), encourages him to search out his missing love. A painter looking for a muse, Don Pedro Cleto Colaco (Pankaj Kapur) and Angie's youth love Savio Da Gama (Arjun Kapur) join this diverse temporary fad. What takes after is a road trip that makes the characters relearn some cruel truths furthermore familiarizes them with changing motion of their relationships with one another in the meantime.

Naseer and Pankaj are prepared veterans and expectedly sustain off one another. One of best lines in the movies is when Don Pedro flourishingly portrays Freddie as the Casanova Of Konkan. While Naseer brings out all the idiosyncrasies of a bashful, self observer lover, Pankaj is a hoot as the over-the-top painter. His rejection of his "muse" Dimple after he completes her composition is piercing and slyly shows the heart of a painter in the meantime. Dimple shows what a fine on-screen character she is – her boasting Goan close relative act, where her intense outside shrouds a shaky persona is one of her best screen versions as such. The young people, Arjun and Deepika are the genuine astonishment. Arjun plays Savio, the driver, repairman and vigorous love with the rant his character merits and is at times out of pace with the veterans. Deepika overflows confidence in every edge. She stands her ground against everybody and demonstrates how great an on-screen character she could be in the hands of a proficient director. It's her film more than anybody else's.

In the wake of Being Cyrus and Cocktail, director 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 eccentric characters managing ordinary emergency and rising wealthier simultaneously. It will most likely put a grin to your face, if nothing else.

Hasee Toh Phasee - Trailer & Review (Ft. Parineeti Chopra & Sidharth Malhotra)

Hasee Toh Phasee - Trailer | Review
A Romantic Comedy Directed by Vinil Mathew is cup of a taste for youngsters who really wanna see a fresh new and a sweet romantic love story. This name proclaims to be a stomach aching comedy or maybe some nonsense comedy but the movie has quite genuine humor and its a different sort of love triangle. This movie has a solid story (dialog from Harshavardhan Kulkarni, Purva Naresh, Anurag Kashyap), superb flow, considerable acting performances & entertainment for a wide range of audience.

Parineeti Chopra has yet again proved that she is a versatile actress as she has genuinely played two entirely opposite characters within single role in the movie. Though the idea of movie is old but then it has been blended quite excellently by the story writer. In an instance you feel as the movie is quite connected with millions of individual youngsters life's in one way or the other but then the exceptional performance by Parneeti gives it a distinction. Sidharth's has also done a good role in movie of being a fiancé of a billionaire girl accepting her ifs and buts every now and then.

Nikhil (Siddharth) is a looser characters where whatever he aims and tries to impress her girl friend Karishma (Adah Sharma, an promising actor, smart, lovely and super sexi) always fails into his things. He could neither keep her happy, nor give her some surprises and here Nikhil meets Meeta (Parineeti Chopra) at their engagement, where Meeta is doing her research projects from China and shown very intellectual personality, but fails to be a part of her own family.
Nikhil starts helping Meeta in various ways and they both fall in love and the melodrama starts..

Editing is perfect, no where the movie is made lengthy, and 2.22 hrs finishes really fast.
Music by Vishal Shekhar is amazing, already Punjabi Wedding song is rocking along with Zehnaseeb, & Ishq Bulava. Songs like Drama Queen & Zehnaseeb are pleasant listening experience.

The best part of the movie is there is no over acting, no vulgarity, No love making scenes and inspite all of this movie is emotional, humorous, and fun to watch along with the entire family. Infact there is not a single double meaning dialogue..
Parineeti steals the show from start to end by her acting skills which are unmatched. Siddharth does really good and looks mature in role & effortlessly fits in his ‘always cool dude’ character but he should really work on dancing skills. Adah Shah needs more exposure, Sharath Saxsena is perfect with his role, Infact all the characters are superbly placed.

A typical feel good love story & a family entertainer. If you really wanna watch a fresh, romantic comedy with some really good laughter do not miss this one. I would rate it 3.5/5. (iMDb rating: 7.5/10)
