Adapted from the Belgian film "Everybody's Famous!", an Oscar nominated film in 2001, "Fanney Khan" is the story of a father who goes to various lengths to encourage his daughter to become a star singer.
Visually the film benefits from the fine work of cinematographer Avinash Arun, who bathes the feature and its characters with glossy naturalistic composition.
A film about honour killing, it is aptly an honourable failure, giving us some of what is desirable, but largely leaving much to be desired.
Shaad Ali's "Soorma" is a remarkable story of hope and inspiration based on the life of Sandeep Singh, the former captain of the Indian Hockey team.
Overall, 'Sanju' with a special emphasis on the father-son relationship, as well as his bond with his friend Kamli, is a heart-warming tale, honestly told.
