Critic Review of Fanney Khan by Times of India
‘Fanney Khan’ is a narrative of hopes, goals and relationships. It’s a couple of father who will cease at nothing to place his daughter on the grand stage as the following singing sensation of India.
Fanney Khan Evaluate:
He couldn’t turn out to be Mohammad Rafi, however harbours a dream of his daughter changing into Lata Mangeshkar. Prashant Sharma (Anil Kapoor) popularly often known as Fanney Khan amongst his gulley mates, works exhausting to make ends meet, idolises Shammi Kapoor and lives just for his dream of superstardom. He fails to attain that and therefore pins his hopes on his new-born, even naming her Lata (Pihu Sand). Now in her teenagers, Lata not solely sings effectively but in addition dances like a dream regardless of her plus measurement that usually makes her an object of physique shaming on stage.
Anil Kapoor hits all the precise notes as a beleaguered father, who is commonly reprimanded by his personal baby for being so unflinchingly devoted in his mission to see her succeed. He strikes the precise steadiness for a center class man in Mumbai struggling between goals and actuality. This at the same time as his spouse Kavita (Divya Dutta) continues to be his empathetic voice of purpose. As a debutante, Pihu Sand captures the vulnerability of her character, however one by no means understands her fixed grouse towards her father. Because the hotshot singer Child Singh, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan appears to be like befittingly beautiful, however her storyline is etched with out a lot effort or logic. The gifted Rajkummar Rao as Prashant’s trusted good friend Adhir, reveals his ordinary aptitude inside a restricted scope. Whereas Rajkummar’s chemistry with Aishwarya appears pressured, his comedian timing involves the rescue.
Movie’s narrative goes barely out of tune in second half. For instance, there isn’t any actual backstory for Child Singh and the one particular person in her life is a creepy supervisor, who desires her to stage a wardrobe malfunction for a actuality present.
Whereas the second half is lengthy and laborious, earnest performances hold the boat afloat. For a musical, Fanney Khan’s soundtrack doesn’t dwell up absolutely besides the Achche Din tune which is nice and the finale tune that exudes power.
Total, ‘Fanney Khan’ is a star studded musical that begins on a excessive observe and has its moments of glory. It reveals how mother and father dwell their goals by way of kids.
It does strike just a few fallacious chords to culminate into an emotional but handy climax. Nevertheless, the showstopper is clearly Anil Kapoor with a knockout efficiency that makes ‘Fanney Khan’ price a watch.
