The Fakir Of Venice Review IMG
THE FAKIR OF VENICE is the tale of an Indian fixer who has an extraordinary ordeal. Adi Contractor (Farhan Akhtar) works in movies as the generation controller. His main responsibility is to guarantee that the strange requests of the makers are met. He once figures out how to get a monkey from China according to the necessity of a dire film shoot in the Himalayas close to the fringe on the Indian side! He is situated in Mumbai where his ex Mandira (Kamal Sidhu) and her associate Avantika (Sushma Prakash) solicit him to meet the prerequisite from a rumored craftsmanship display in Venice. They are looking for a fakir or a sadhu who can be covered in the sand for a considerable length of time and along these lines can wonderment the guests. Adi takes up the offer and he embarks to Varanasi to discover the fakir being referred to. Be that as it may, his pursuit yields no outcomes.

Sattar too concurs since he understands that he’ll be paid liberally and he can give the cash to his wedded sister Hamida (Jhilmil Hazrika) with whom he lives. Adi with the assistance of Mandira trains him to claim to be a fakir and gives him the correct garments. Both at that point achieve Venice and the franticness starts. Guests are awed to see Sattar being covered in the ground with simply his hands jutting out. Adi then twists nonexistent anecdote about the remarkable forces of the ‘fakir’. In any case, Sattar is battling his arrangement of devils and there’s a hazard that it can uncover their falsehoods. What occurs next structures whatever is left of the film.
Rajesh Devraj’s story is purportedly founded on the life of movie producer Homi Adajania, known for coordinating BEING CYRUS , COCKTAIL  and FINDING FANNY . The plot is intriguing and on the off chance that it was in the correct hands, it could have made for a decent watch. Rajesh Devraj’s screenplay is somewhat chaotic and neglects to have the required effect. This is particularly in the second half when Sattar’s issues go to the fore. In any case, a couple of scenes here are unconvincing while the ones that are fine don’t generally take the film to a high. Rajesh Devraj’s exchanges are basic yet gets somewhat sermonizing. Likewise, Adi is portraying the film in English and such strategies would additionally decrease its film industry prospects. A great deal of discoursed have manhandles which have been quieted, affability the CBFC. Subsequently, it is hard to fathom a portion of the sentences mumbled by the characters.
Anand Surapur’s course is nothing incredible as he could have completed a great deal with the topic and characters. The dated feel further pulls down the film.
THE FAKIR OF VENICE starts on a fun note yet the exciting foundation score appears to be strange. It before long turns out to be evident that the film has a film celebration feel and that it ought to be seen in such manner. The film is only 98 minutes in length and the principal half is windy and cheerful and engages watchers. In any case, the second half gets excessively overwhelming and unusual. Sattar more than once awakening with a shout ends up tedious. His whole issue could have been exceptional clarified. The scene where Sattar flees from the inn is very absurd yet raises intrigue level. Besides, he enters a similar spot where Adi is celebrating. In spite of Sattar going crazy and shaking the show there, he doesn’t chance upon Adi and the last doesn’t come to realize that Sattar was available in the gathering. It appears to be hard to process since there weren’t such a large number of individuals at the slam. Actually as well, the film isn’t sound and the dated feel additionally kicks in at specific spots. Despite the fact that the film finishes strong, it is past the point of no return in the day to have the ideal effect.
Farhan Akhtar, not surprisingly, looks very youthful and helps one to remember his style and appearance in his initial two movies – ROCK ON  and LUCK BY CHANCE . What’s more, this look truly suits him. Execution astute, he completes a fine employment, sans grievances. He’s playing a narrow minded person and that side turns out great. Additionally, one can feel that he’s overwhelming Sattar – this bit appears to be extremely persuading. Annu Kapoor is the spirit of the film and spares it from turning into a debacle. Two scenes where he truly was the best were the point at which his sister says farewell to him and his monolog at the shoreline. Kamal Sidhu is squandered. Valentina Carnelutti (Gia) has a significant part in the second half and progresses nicely. Jhilmil Hazrika looks bona fide. Sushma Prakash, Joginder Singh and Mathieu Carrière (Massimo) are tolerable.
A R Rahman’s music has no effect. The tune ‘Wako Naam Fakir’ is played out of sight and isn’t significant. The foundation score is unbalanced at spots and a bit excessively uproarious in a couple of scenes. Deepti Gupta, Preetha Jayaraman and Bakul Sharma’s cinematography is alright. Some hand-held and long shots look somewhat off and neglect to give the film an extra large screen look. The shading revision additionally isn’t done accurately in an essential scene. Susanna Codognato’s creation configuration is better than average. Anand Surapur’s altering is very alright and bit heedless.
All in all, THE FAKIR OF VENICE gloats of an intriguing plot and bravura execution by Annu Kapoor. In any case, the imperfect execution, celebration style account and in particular the deferred discharge will conflict with the film vigorously.
