Product Description

Set in Delhi and the Kashmir Valley, a blind woman falls in love with a rakish tour guide who hides a terrible secret

Review

Fanaa is loaded with charm. A richly layered Fanaa is a fast-paced film featuring Bollywood's biggest superstar, Aamir Khan and Kajol. Besides a gripping narrative, Fanaa packs solid acting by the lead pair, picturesque photography and pleasing songs - a combination that rarely comes together in Bollywood. The movie goes beyond the traditional - and dispiritingly banal - Bollywood love story though love is the leitmotif of Fanaa as well. There is action aplenty and a much needed focus on the Kashmir problem, a long simmering political issue. --platform47.com

I have a special regard for this movie, because I had the enormous luck to see it in the faboulous, incredibly ornate and atmospheric Raj Mandir theatre of Jaipur. Watching not just the film, but also the reactions of the audience -who were obviously enjoying the experience enormously and constantly and spontaneously expressing so- was a great delight.

"Fanaa" is a concept taken from mysticism. In the world of mystic poetry "fanaa" was the point at which the mystic's own sense of self was destroyed or anihilated by his/her union with God. We are talking deep religion here and, in this context, that someone uses this word as a title for a Bollywood film can even sound a bit like sacrilege. The concept is, though, brilliantly used by the writer and applied simply to "True Love" a rare event which, arguably, contains a spark of the divine, and that ordinary people can, ever so rarely -but not so much as mystic love-, experience in this life.

Zooni (Kajol) is a blind girl who has lived protected -and isolated- all her life by the love and warmth of her family, who have raised her like the fragile maiden princess of a fairy tale. When she must set out for the big city, Delhhi, and be appart from her parents for the first time, she jokes with them about the possibility of finding there "her prince". Big poetic irony -we, the audience, realize instantly. "And what shall I tell my prince when I find him?", Zooni asks her mother; "May my life be destroyed in your love!!!" answers the mother, quoting poetry.

And Zooni meets Rehan (Aamir Khan)whom nobody would take as a prince at first, or even second or third, sight. But Zooni, being blind, is not blinded by appearances, and soon recognizes the prince in Rehan...even though he is bent on proving otherwise.

I fell in love with Aamir Khan after watching Mangal Pandey in an Indian History course and decided I must see more of his work. I saw Lagaan - Once Upon a Time in India first (as it is one of the most readily available Indian films to the American audience) and loved it, but it is Fanaa that stands out for me.

It is a romantic, melodramatic film with a bit of Kashmiri politics thrown in, and cannot cannot be said to be on the same level as films like Lagaan, but I believe the performances by Aamir Khan and Kajol transcend the sometimes shaky plot.

Watching Zooni and Rehan discover each other throughout the first half of film kept me glued to the screen. The chemistry between Aaamir and Kajol is undeniable and Aamir's portrayal of a man falling in love against his best efforts is effortless and wonderfully effective.

By the second half of film, I had forgotten the plot conventions and was wrapped up completely in the love story of Rehan and Zooni.

Do yourself a favor: if you're looking for a romantic film that will undoubtedly sweep you off your feet, buy Fanaa!

Format: DVD
Fanaa is a film about a blind girl (from the hills with two loving parents) who falls in love with a guide. Delhi is shown in all of it's life and the camerawork in the film is staggering. The music of the film adds much likeable delirium to its undeniable gravity. I didn't know what quite to expect out of an Amir Khan film. Nothing against the actor but I quite disliked his last 2 films (RDB and Mangal Pandey). In Fanaa, his performance stands out from his roles in the past. I am not going to give any spoilers away.

If someone was relating the story to me, I would be very confused. However, when I watched the film, the ease with which the direction captivates and the scene by scene anxiety induced irony - made sure that I was totally hooked. Kajol is excellent in this film. Her stupid delinquent girly gestures have disappeared and there is no room for cheap comedy. The humor of the film has a rather low volumed baritone. The movie is like an adventure, Aamir looks great and Kajol looks beautiful, for once.

What else can I say? I watched this movie alone at the theater (first time for me) and although it was half empty, I knew this film is not meant for all audiences. Fans of Veer Zara will probably like this film more than Veer Zara. Despite the chaos, the sometimes exaggerated irony, there is something very RIGHT about this film and it strikes just the right cord for an emotionally charaged DRAMA enthusiast like me. The mountains, the capital, the bus-rides, the gardens, the helicopters, the few action scenes, just about everything felt quite perfect and adequate. Excellent editing, I might as well add.

I'm an Aamir Khan fan again and finally a Kajol fan, too.

Subhaan Alla

P.S - Two better films this year were "Lage Raho Munnabhai" & "Gangster". This is the third best, in my staunch opinion.

Format: DVD
Because of their length, Bollywood films almost always have an intermission, and the intermission is usually preceded by a surprising cliffhanger to keep audiences interested in returning for the second half. Introducing a cliffhanger in the middle of a film is extremely effective in bolstering the narrative (many Western films that sag halfway through could use one). Fanaa has one of the best intermission cliffhangers ever--making it difficult to review the film without ruining the surprise. However, you'll find no spoilers here--Fanaa is too good to give it away.

The story begins in Kashmir--a territory disputed by India, Pakistan, and China--and a place as beautiful as it is troubled by periodic war and terrorism. (In fact, the film was shot in wintry, mountainous areas of Poland because of unrest in the region.) Zooni (Kajol) is a blind, young Kashmiri woman who has been invited, along with her female classmates, to travel to Delhi and perform a song and dance in the capital for Republic Day. Her parents (played by Rishi Kapoor and Kirron Kher) are reluctant to let her go, but they also want to encourage her to be independent so they relent.

Their reservations are warranted, however, because the girls' tour guide in Delhi is a flirtatious rogue named Rehan (Aamir Khan). As soon as Rehan lays eyes on Zooni, he comes on strong and doesn't let up. Even though he's clearly trouble and her friends try to warn her off, Zooni falls for this charmer, partly because she loves all his sweet-talking attention and partly because he doesn't treat her like a child like everyone else does. She may be sweet and innocent, but she's also a capable woman, and Rehan challenges her to think and act for herself.
