‘Fanney Khan’ trailer a heartwarming ode to Lata Mangeshkar

Published

on

New Delhi, July 6: “I couldn’t be Mohammed Rafi. But I will make you Lata Mangeshkar,” promises papa Anil Kapoor to his overweight screen daughter, the spontaneous and endearing debutante Pihu Sand, whose dreams and aspirations are trailed by her father all the way to the next reality show.

But wait. If you think this is a routine tearjerker about a failed singer who wants his daughter to fulfill his dreams, then there is much more here to feast on. There is a major goofed-up kidnapping where the stunning Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, playing a singer who seems to be more a dancer, is whisked away by two inept kidnappers, played by Anil and his screen-ally Rajkummar Rao.

The official remake of a Belgian film “Everybody’s Famous”, “Fanney Khan” is a winsome ode to the imperishable reputation of Lata Mangeshkar as the queen of all things melodious. It spotlights and contours the Nightingale’s aura with endearing humour and warmth and gives us a spunky 17-year old heroine who won’t be cowed down by her parents’ middle-class anxieties.

The trailer gives us some sparkling performances by all the actors.

The narrative seems to be spun around the harsh glare of reality shows where children are constantly subjected to scrutiny and ridicule. At one such event, an insensitive judge is heard telling our young heroine, “Just because your parents have named you Lata, you think you can sing?”

Just because “Fanney Khan” uses the names of singing legends like Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammed Rafi, it doesn’t qualify for greatness.

Having said that, there is a distinct warmth and incredulity to the presentation that are bound to go a long way in making this film sparkle in a melodious rapture.

Fanney Khan is an official remake of 73rd Academy Awards nominee Belgian film Everybody’s Famous! The satirical comedy film released in the year 2000, narrates the story of a young girl who is forced to be a musical star by her parents.

The film marks the reunion of Aishwarya and Anil after a gap of 18 long years. The duo was last seen together in the 2000 film ‘Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai’.

Directed by Atul Manjrekar and co-produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and T-Series, Fanney Khan is scheduled to hit the theatres on August 3. It will clash with Irrfan Khan and Dulquer Salmaan starrer ‘Karwaan’ at the box office.

Rai said that the case was lodged against Salman and others in pursuance of an order passed by the court of Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate last week.

The court has passed the order on the complaint of an advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha.

In the complaint, Ojha has claimed that the title of the movie made fun of the holy festival of Navaratri. He also alleged that the promos of the movie suggested that it contained vulgarity and could hurt the sentiments of Hindus.
