Fanney Khan is a 2018 Indian Hindi-language musical comedy film directed by Atul Manjrekar and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, and Anil Kapoor. The movie stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, and Rajkummar Rao in the lead roles. The story revolves around a father named Fanney Khan, played by Anil Kapoor, who dreams of becoming a singer. He was once a promising singer, but his dream was shattered by the harsh realities of life. His disappointment in his own failure is amplified when he sees his daughter, Lata Sharma (Pihu Sand), a talented singer being ridiculed for her weight during a TV singing competition. The judges refuse to give her a chance on stage, crushing her dreams altogether.

Fanney Khan sets out to fulfill his daughter's dream of becoming a singer and takes help from an aspiring young musician named Adhir (Rajkummar Rao) who is smitten by Lata. With the help of a few like-minded friends, he kidnaps the diva pop singer Baby Singh, played by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, whom he adores as he feels that she too started her career from a similar background. He hopes that this will help Lata get the chance to sing on stage.

In the movie, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan brings grace and much-needed star power to the role of Baby Singh, who is apparently one of the most sought-after pop stars in the country. She plays the part of a celebrity with ease and carries off her diva-like demeanour quite effortlessly. However, the movie isn't just about her. It's also about the festering wounds of artists' unfulfilled dreams, the power of unyielding familial love, and the emotional upheaval that come with stage performances.

Anil Kapoor is the backbone of the movie with his sincere acting and his undying spirit to follow his dreams. His kind-heartedness and his love for his daughter are the driving forces of the movie. Rajkummar Rao has delivered yet another well-suited performance as the humble and quirky musician Adhir, who is smitten by Lata.

The music of Fanney Khan has been composed by Amit Trivedi and Tanishk Bagchi, with lyrics by Irshad Kamil. The songs are a mix of new compositions and some remakes from the past, which have been remixed and given a contemporary twist. The standout tracks are "Mohabbat," "Tere Jaisa Tu Hai," and "Halka Halka."

Overall, Fanney Khan is a well-intentioned movie that tries to spread a message of kindness and understanding towards those who are struggling to fulfill their dreams. It highlights the harsh realities of the entertainment industry, but it also stresses that hard work and perseverance can help one achieve their dreams. It's a movie that will touch your heart, make you laugh, and leave you with a warm, fuzzy feeling.

Fanney Khan is a 2018 comedy with a runtime of 2 hours and 9 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.5.
