Udita Jhunjhunwala Firstpost A weak script with some directing inconsistencies, Fanney Khan had room to be an enjoyable comedy or satire. Instead it careened towards over-the-top melodrama with debatable messaging. Rated: 2/5 Mar 14, 2019 Full Review Anupama Chopra Film Companion The story isn't plausible, which is not an issue. For me the stumbling block was the inconsistent tonality. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 27, 2018 Full Review Saibal Chatterjee NDTV First-time director Atul Manjrekar not only keeps the dramatic core of the story intact, he also ramps it up appreciably to serve up an indigenized version that more than serves its purpose. Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 21, 2020 Full Review Rahul Desai Film Companion Kapoor, unfortunately, is the only one convinced this is a legitimate movie. Rated: 0.5/5 Aug 27, 2018 Full Review Ronak Kotecha The Times of India Overall, Fanney Khan is a star studded musical that starts on a high note and has its moments of glory. It shows how parents live their dreams through children. Rated: 3/5 Aug 3, 2018 Full Review Nandini Ramnath Fanney Khan has its affecting moments, nearly all of them stemming from Anil Kapoor's touching performance as the concerned father and the romance between the characters played by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao.

Audience Member Time is money and when it's wasted, sometimes it hurts more than money! We gives 2 hours of our life and what we get is a plot so badly stitched together that at one point you start to feel sympathetic towards the director... I wished there was someone around him to help him or at least make him aware that it's no more in the entertainment zone. It was just tad bit short of entering torture zone. Just because anyone can become a director doesn't mean he should.... Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review flixster f Extremely disappointing. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member It could pull off by mainly the acting of Anil Kapoor and Rajkumar Rao. The dreams a father sees for his kids and drawn at the edge only to fulfil them touched. Laughed with the acting of Rajkumar Rao. But Ashwaria can't be doing what she was, as a singing super star. Showing love-affairs isn't necessary in all the movies. Ending was being irrationa, Police won't clap in uniform for a kidnaper, to find a person after tracking shouldn't be this late. From that point the movie slowed down to death Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review mirza m 'Fanney Khan' has well-meaning intentions but is letdown by its lazy execution and melodramatic overtones. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a great movie!! Great acting, great plot, funny and heartwarming. I saw it twice and cried both times. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member How can a movie about singing and music with three lead singer-characters have only three original songs? How can a movie about music have uninspiring music? How can then, such a movie, have poor lip syncing where it is evident those actor-singers are not singing the song in the film? Full of cliches, poor dialogues and horrible editing makes this an unwatchable film. Sorry Rajkummar, even you couldn't save this film. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
