Finding Fanny

Country: India

Pre-note: I thought this movie was going to be a mix of Hindi and English with a majority of it being Hindi, but nope all in English but for some reason they still had English subtitles which annoyed me.

 Endearing and warm with perfect amount of funny and saucy mixed in made Finding Fanny a delight to watch. I immediately fell in love with old gentle soul, Ferdie and cheered him on in his quest for love. The story flowed nicely and threw in nice elements of humor and surprise while building up to the climax. The quintet of actors all played nicely off each other, but there was no standout or truly remarkable performance. The musical score was a lovely blend of bright plucky strings and tender deep melodies; I could have listened to it all day.   Whether it’s Bollywood or Hollywood, this tale of finding alost love gets my thumbs up.
