Finding Fanny.


As I had indicated in my post on A Walk Among The Tombstones, Ramesh and I went to see another film earlier this evening. A joint Hollywood and Bollywood production with an all Indian cast directed by a very young and promising Indian, the film has received rave reviews and I was pleased to find that all the raving is justified.

The cast, a blend of the old and new, the locale – the very picturesque Goa, a good story line, superb direction and editing made for a heady combination. The surprise package was Dimple Kapadia on who I had a crush some decades ago, in a remarkable role as a matronly busybody. The very young a bubbly pair of Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor give excellent counterpoint to the seasoned Naseeruddin Shah and Pankaj Kapoor. Anjali Patil in almost a cameo appearance does credit and offers promise for the future.

The movie has been shot in Hindi as well as English and if you are interested to see some scenes from Goa, a slightly wacky but still serious romantic film, I strongly recommend this picture for which I have no hesitation in giving a full [rating=6].

    When I read the title of this post in my reader, I saw an ‘a’ between the words above. Oops! I thought, Ramana is inviting an increase of unwanted comments. Then when I clicked through, there was no ‘a’ in sight.
