• Set in a world that feels entirely authentic, Finding Fanny is a charming film that starts off slowly but draws you into its drama. At a crisp 105 minutes, it’s a perfectly satisfying watch unlike so many disposable comedies today.

    …the film is patchily quirky. An undelivered love letter comes back to the sender, more than four decades after the fact, and it sets into motion this little tale, which leaves you both smiling, when the whimsy is just right, and impatient, when it turns flatly prosaic.

    Finding Fanny is wickedly fantastic… made in a land of Hindi genre movies and starring one of Bollywood’s glitziest girls, Finding Fanny is bold enough already. It gives us much, much to smile pleasantly at, to guffaw at, and one moment that will make the theatre gasp — before it brings the house down.

    …reasserts the power of simple story telling, making it one of the most refreshing and delightful films of recent times.

  • Finding Fanny is a fine blend of soulful musings and nuanced filmmaking. And I welcome this clutter breaking space, the First Lady of Pocolim and the Casanova of Konkon with all my heart.

    Finding Fanny is funny, dark, yet bright, a shimmering ride through a Goa far from the tight-rooted Trikal, the touristy Dil Chahta Hai. Its drama keeps surprising – but also meanders, including around an overacting Russian and an unnecessarily macabre cat. It evokes an Almodovar-Anderson-Marquez-in-Goa feel, but occasionally, its cleverness grows obvious while little details – catch the changing colours of Ferdie’s petrol can – are overlooked.

  • “Finding Fanny”, for all its flaws, is a rarity in Bollywood. A not-too-long English film with characters you would not find easily. If only Adajania had the courage to go all the way and tell the full story of these five characters, it would have been a great film.

    Finding Fanny is for a very niche audience…To pull this off and make it entertaining is not easy, but it’s clear he is an extremely talented filmmaker. If you are up for watching something different then go and watch Finding Fanny, you won’t be disappointed.

  • Finding Fanny isn’t much about quirk as much as it is about discoveries and revelations. Despite the ending being on the disappointing side and the threadbare plot, it is the magnificent Performances that creates a certain kinship with its audiences. It doesn’t play on the stereotype and is neither some path breaking film but I came out with a good experiences, a few well intended laughs and some wonderful Performances. Don’t miss this. If you have the patience to unravel a treasure, Finding Fanny has one in hold for you.

  • Watch Finding Fanny in its English version rather than the Hindi one. The punchlines would seem sharper. It would also let you understand why the naughty pun about the film’s title is not a cheap trick. Although never openly explained, the English version leaves behind a merry wink over that bit.

    I came out feeling unsatiated. I wanted to sink my teeth into the complex and tragic lives of these oddballs, I wasn’t given that chance, there just wasn’t enough meat.

  • If you’re tired of the nonsensical fare doled out by Bollywood week after week and have a palate for Unusual-Entertainment, then FINDING FANNY will fill your heart with joy.

    The film is sprinkled with humor and some clever lines which keep it going but the screenplay hits a few roadblocks particularly in the latter half when it becomes a road movie. There is not much of an attempt there to push the envelope and you can’t read too much in the characters or their motives.

  • Go watch the film for its wealth of quirky characters dealing with everyday crisis and emerging richer in the process. It will surely put a smile to your face, if nothing else…

  • FINDING FANNY is a treat for cinema lovers. It’s as though filmmakers have finally realized that audiences too have to be respected.

  • Finding Fanny is a well-written film that combines comedy and drama to create a charming story as well as accomplished entertainment. From its most touching moments to its most hilarious situations, the film is highly enjoyable and a recommended watch.

  • Imagine spending a night in a shack on a beach in Goa, drinking your poison and sharing mad jokes with friends all night. Watch this one for a slice of that kind of experience.

    This is Zindagi Milegi Na Dobaara of the Goan world where aspirations are so low you would have felt embarrassed for the characters if they hadn’t decided to preserve a core of dignity during times of tumult and stress.

  • With so much going for ‘Finding Fanny’, make sure you’d step out and hitch a ride with this mad bunch and go on their road-trip because it’s truly one-of-a-kind.

    For those who like the saccharine and stereotype-powered Bollywood romances, the turnaround comes too late. For those who like quirk, the ending is a disappointment because it jars against what Adajania has in the rest of the film.

    …is a cute entertainer but it has appeal for the class audience only, that too, in the big cities only. It will do well in very select multiplexes of the major cities mainly. But its business in lesser multiplexes, single-screen cinemas and in centres other than the big cities will be very dull. Overall, the film will garner critical acclaim but its economics will not bring a smile on anybody’s face. The English version will fare far better than the dubbed version.

  • As mentioned earlier, you may not be wowed by the story. Yet, Finding Fanny leaves you with a happy feeling. It is charmingly off-beat and yet mainstream. As you walk out, you would have much more on your mind apart from the delightful end-credit tune. Finding Fanny urges you to make a move if you want to find your love. I urge you to watch go to the theater and watch the film for sure. Just one advice – try catch the English version. Hindi is fine too but just not the language it is shot in.

    If you like to watch offbeat cinema, and you loved Lunch Box and Ship of Theseus, then Finding Fanny is your treat for the weekend. But the lovers of a typical Bollywood masala film should give it a miss.

  • As a film-buff, it’s gently reassuring sometimes to find marquee names that don’t just chase big opening day figures but good films too. With time, Finding Fanny will find fans. I’m only one of the early ones.

  • …is fun-filled because it’s all about looking for what you need, what you want. It helps you find humour even in grief. But in the end, it’s all about finding love.

    Wonder why? Grab your ticket to know why and see if you too can join the crazy five in their mission to ‘Find Fanny’.

    One can relate to the five oddballs as they set out on their journey in a dilapidated car in scenic Goa and nurse their shattered pride along the way. Finding Fanny forces you to slow down and enjoy the bumpy yet adventurous ride.

    Signaling a new phenomenon in bollywood involving A -list which is ambitious yet intimate, appearing individual but yet can be happily universal, ‘Finding Fanny’ helmed by Homi Adjania is a quirky, bold and a beautiful bittersweet gem on love and life continuingly nurtured by wit and flawless performances. Looking for drolly, satisfying, evocative and lovely cinema go ‘Find’ Fanny at your nearest theater.

    Very rare a film comes which isn’t Hindi, has no melodrama, is off-beat, has established actors and has a simple yet meaningful script. Finding Fanny is one of them. Like me, if you love watching movies no matter what the genre is, then do catch this film. But not with your parents!

  • Lots of sweet, not enough bitters, and one great Dimple…It’s a they-are-crazy-but-not-dangerous giggle-fest, with as many repeat-worthy jokes in Goan English as there are cashew trees in the state. Since this is also India’s European corner, the sun-blessed land of laidback, where time can stretch onto eternity or to the 105-minute duration of this movie, Finding Fanny never dares to disappoint.

  • Adajania brings in an arresting story, great atmospherics, and memorable character superbly acted by the cast. All this with a sprinkling of some deliciously wicked humour. This little, big film is all heart. You shouldn’t miss it!

  • Such a clean-cut, sliced and diced ending is not what a dark humored film like this one deserves. Even so, it is nice to have a change of pace and scenery from the typical Hindi film. Always welcome.

  • … this sense of whimsicality and romance within the absurd and a simultaneous assertion of the ludicrosity of rom­ance that I found most interesting. However, instead of dwelling more on this delicious dichotomy, the film goes deliberately overboard on the kinkiness and becomes over-­ind­ulgent with the loudness and farce. It ent­er­tained while it lasted but hasn’t stayed on with me for long.

    This film is exactly the kind of brave clutter-breaking effort that most critics wish for while lamenting the rigidness of mainstream stars. That it left me grinning long after the credit-roll is a testament to its ability to amuse, without resorting to gimmicky slapstick or toilet humour.

    Things get untangled rather easily towards the end making one feel that Homi hasn’t paid heed to don Podro’s advice – ‘In art there is no compromise.’ Still there are many reasons to get lost!

    While typical Bollywood ‘masala’ films are trying to chase the 100 crore club, this off-beat movie Finding Fanny makes an attempt to highlight human emotions in a much more realistic and philosophical manner.

    Although some of the jokes and sharp dialogues were lost in translation and that’s a tragedy, but don’t stop yourself from watching Finding Fanny. You will surely feel like a breath of fresh air.

  • It’s a confident, succinct film (93 minutes) that doesn’t shy away from being subtle and doesn’t underestimate the intelligence of its viewers. It’s a film that may not claim to change the world, but it does bring a smile to your face for at least a day.

  • Finding Fanny is a refreshing break from typical Bollywood ‘masala’ flicks.

    Finding Fanny would have been an extremely low-budget NFDC-produced festival-friendly arthouse film with a set of talented NSD graduates. But here with Fox Star Studios pumping in a lot of money and Homi getting his superstar friends to star in it, this has been pitched as the big Bolly release of the week. Well, if you’re just a Deepika fan you might find Fanny, but otherwise your search for the fun weekend film might run out of fuel.
