This film stars Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor along with Dimple Kapadia, Pankaj Kapur and the magical Naseeruddin Shah. The film releases on 25th August in English and Hindi under Maddock Films and is all set to find Fanny, Naseeruddin’s one and only love, the Goan way! The movie revolves around these 5 main, very random characters and their journey of finding Stefanie Fernandes. Sounds exciting? Well if not then definitely after hearing the album!
1. Fanny Re
Naturally the title track, this song is all about Naseeruddin’s love story with Fanny and how he, along with other 4 people, is now searching for her. At first, I didn’t really like the song, but it slowly grows onto you. Quite different and quirky, and has a lazy touch to it. The video of the song has a vintage feel and is very, very random. In fact, the song starts with an exclaimer that none of the characters behave like this in the film. A purely promotional song that has all the characters sing in the voice of Mukhtiyar Ali. Arjun Kapoor though steals the show!
2. Mahi Ve
Exactly the same song as the title track, but instead of Fanny, this song is dedicated to all the Mahi’s. Don’t know the point, but it’s still nice!
3. Ding Dong
A song by Mathias Duplessy. Lazy, carefree and yet peppy. A love song in English with fun lyrics and a retro stroke, and totally makes you dance.
4. Shake Your Bootiya
Starts with some ghostly opera, some cracking doors or rocking chairs, and suddenly changes into something peppy. A typical Goan dance song on Fenny, sung by Divya Kumar. It’s very cute.
The album is anything but commercial or mainstream. The songs are quite offbeat, just like the movie aims to be and hopefully is.
