Went to see 'Finding Fanny' last night, very different going out here without the children and being able to have a peaceful car journey. Cineworld on Broad Street shows a couple of Hindi movies - dont have to travel to Vue in Starcity the other side of Birmingham fortunately.
I loved the movie....went thinking it might be some caricature of a Goan community like previous Hindi movie portrayals, but, its actually reasonably authentic and, no beaches/drugs/etc shown. There isn't a Calangute or a Mapusa or a Panjim but lots of proper rural Goa.
Cant think of where to begin, all characters lovely and well thought out.....so many many many fantastic pieces of scriptwriting, lots of dark bits, some fantastic humour, well done by a Parsi director and non Goan cast.
Naseeruddin Shah stands out as the mad Ferdie, read that Homi A waited for him to have time to do this movie, well worth it. None of the cast come close in comparison to his acting.
Deepika P looks lovely in the movie, in a non jaw dropping Aishwarya Rai beauty sort of way. (a couple of friends who've worked with her say she looks nothing like that in reality and she's had a lot of work done! Would have said being nasty but they are lovely and honest :)
Good to see Dimple K after ages on screen. In school, we used to think she was one of the most beautiful women ever.
Karamchand aka Pankaj K was very good as the lechy painter.
Not sure if the movie is classed as a comedy, but I laughed my head off at some bits, classic being Rosie's cat disaster and the fallout.
I can go on and on about the various scenes/bits/portions, but will stop and say go and see the movie!
