With actors like Naseruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapur, and Dimple Kapadia one expects a certain substance in the movie, or at least one expects that one can enjoy the characters played by these actors.

Finding Fanny is about Naseruddin Shah a retired post master. He finds a letter one day which he had written to his flame “Fanny” and he realizes that the postman has never delivered the letter to her. He had been brooding over not having been able to marry now. Now after all these years he sets out in search of her with the help of Deepika Padukone, Pankaj Kapur, Arjun Kapoor, and Dimple Kapadia. Dimple Kapadia is the lady of the town whose husband has disappeared. Deepika Padukone is the virgin-widow daughter-in-law of Dimple Kapadia. Pankaj Kapur is an artist who has come to the town and is trying to woo Dimple Kapadia to pose for him to paint. Arjun Kapoor is the ex-flame of Deepika who has come back from the city.

Arjun Kapoor drives this motley crowd in search of Fanny. They find that Fanny has moved out of her old house to another town. They now go in search of Fanny to this town.

The rest of the movie is not worth reviewing. It is just a motley of events, supposedly funny, but only remotely so. Finally Naseruddin finds his Fanny, but she is dead.

One wonders why Naseruddin, Dimple Kapadia and Pankaj Kapur accepted to work in the film. Nothing but trash.
