This week we see a lot of rains, a brave set of people fighting floods and two releases on India Box Office.
FINDING FANNY (Hindi & English): Genre: Sattire | Director: Homi Adajania | Cast: Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor, Pankaj Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah and Dimple Kapadia
In a quiet town of Pocolim, Goa, five dysfunctional friends start on a road journey in search of long lost love interest of one of them, Ferdie (Naseeruddin Shah), by the name of Fanny. Ferdie was living a life of regret for so many years thinking that his love Fanny has rejected his love but then he finds the letter in which he had proposed to her which comes back undelivered after 46 years. A ray of hope arises in his heart and he steps out to look for Fanny and wonders what, how, where would she be after 46 years. Four of his friends also join in to look for her as they need some distractions in their otherwise mundane lives. The adventure begins as they embark on this hilarious journey which will change their lives forever.
Deepika Padukone plays Angie, a virgin widow, and Arjun Kapoor, a bitter mechanic, plays the lead in Finding Fanny. The film also has performances by some veterans like Dimple Kapadia who plays another widow, Rosie, the self-proclaimed Lady of Pocolim; Pankaj Kapoor, who plays a painter, and of course Naseeruddin Shah who plays the postmaster. We also see Ranveer Singh as Gabo, who is Angie’s dead husband. Music is by Mathais Duplessy and Sachin-Jigar. The songs are hummable and foot tapping.
CREATURE 3D (Hindi): Genre: Monster Thriller/ Science Fiction | Director: Vikram Bhatt | Cast: Bipasha Basu, Imran Abbas Naqvi, Mukul Dev and Bikramjeet Kanwarpal
Vikram Bhatt is back with another horror science fiction film ‘Creature 3D’ with Bipasha Basu in the lead role along with Imran Abbas Naqvi who is a Pakistani model and actor making his debut in Bollywood. The 3D in the title is a pointer that it should attract your eyeballs quickly, but the same can be justified only after watching if the such positioning is worth. The movie must decide Bipasha’s future now!
