Verdict: Finding Fanny is quirky, fun, fresh but certainly not for everyone. Deflecting from “masala cinema”, Homi Adajania and the cast inject a dose of beautiful madness onto the screen. A must for those who want to watch something new!
What’s the movie about
Pocolim is a village where pointless conversations are a way of life. Nothing ever really happens here and the people of Pocolim, well, they just exist.
One night, the old postman Ferdie, receives a letter that is slipped under his door. He realizes that it is the letter he had written 46 years ago to the love of his life, Stefanie Fernandes, asking for her hand in marriage. To his utter shock, he discovers that had never been delivered. All these years Ferdie has lived a life of melancholy regret, believing that Stefanie had rejected him. He decides to find his beloved Fanny (as he fondly called her) and tell her the truth. Where would she be after 46 years? Dead? Happily married? Would she even remember him? Or is Stefanie Fernandes merely a figment of Ferdie’s imagination?
Four colorful characters from the village join the trip under random pretexts, though in actuality everyone wants a distraction from their mundane lives. A young virgin widow, a bitter mechanic, a belligerent artist and an obnoxious self-appointed ‘Lady’ of Pocolim join Ferdie as they experience various hilarious and moving events that change their lives forever.
Finding Fanny is an off the wall, comical story about a bunch of oddballs who venture out to find Stefanie Fernandes (Fanny); in the process, they discover a strange sense of solace and love amongst each other, and end up seeing a point to their previously pointless lives.
