► Check out the reviews of Finding Fanny from all the critics and reviewers out on Internet.
|Shubha Shetty-Saha, Mid-Day.Com||4 Out of 5||The best thing about this screwball comedy is that Homi Adajania has evidently made it purely for the fun of it and not as a desperate bid to play to the gallery. Imagine spending a night in a shack on a beach in Goa, drinking your poison and sharing mad jokes with friends all night. Watch this one for a slice of that kind of experience.|
|Raja Sen, Reidff||4 Out of 5||It is about consistency, for it must stay true to the flavour it promises in order to ground the lunacy into something we can appreciate over a feature-length period, rather than a string of gags forced onto the same backdrop, and Adajania’s film impressively holds steadfast.|
|Rahul Desai, Mumbai Mirror||4 Out of 5||There is hope yet for Indian entertainment, and this is the ideal time. Otherwise, in the inimitable Don Pedro's words, "It is impossible to conquer the dark in the day."|
|Mohar Basu, KoiMoi||4 Out of 5||Finding Fanny isn’t much about quirk as much as it is about discoveries and revelations. Despite the ending being on the disappointing side and the threadbare plot, it is the magnificent Performances that creates a certain kinship with its audiences.|
|Saurabh Dwivedi, ITGD||4 Out of 5||With this movie, Homi Adajani has proved that he still remembers the Being Cryus kind of cinema, even after making Cocktail.|
|Rohit Khilnani, Headlines Today||3.5 Out of 5||With Being Cyrus, Cocktail and now Finding Fanny Homi Adajania's filmography is quite a cocktail. To pull this off and make it entertaining is not easy, but it's clear he is an extremely talented filmmaker. If you are up for watching something different then go and watch Finding Fanny, you won't be disappointed.|
|Meena Iyer, Times Of India (TOI)||3.5 Out of 5||Finding Fanny is funny, dark, yet bright, a shimmering ride through a Goa far from the tight-rooted Trikal, the touristy Dil Chahta Hai. Its drama keeps surprising - but also meanders, including around an overacting Russian and an unnecessarily macabre cat.|
|Rajiv Masand, CNN-IBN||3 Out of 5||Set in a world that feels entirely authentic, Finding Fanny is a charming film that starts off slowly but draws you into its drama. At a crisp 105 minutes, it's a perfectly satisfying watch unlike so many disposable comedies today. I'm going with three out of five.|
|Hungama Network, Bollywood Hungama||3 Out of 5||It is commendable on the part of Fox and Dinesh Vijan to have diligently backed this project. With a big name like Deepika Padukone getting associated with this film and then Arjun Kapoor (scoring well at the Box Office) bringing in eye balls too, FINDING FANNY has enough curiosity around it.|
|Koel Purie, India Today||3 Out of 5||The film, however, glides over it without delving deep, perhaps a conscious decision to steer clear of Hindi movie melodrama that just went too far for me. The balance is off.|
|Komal Nahata||-||Finding Fanny is a cute entertainer but it has appeal for the class audience only, that too, in the big cities only. It will do well in very select multiplexes of the major cities mainly.|
