Script Trivia?[edit]

How reliable is the trivia section? I have not yet come across this story so I don't see any way to verify this.

Name of the Movie[edit]

Ok. The name Fanaah is wrong. I have seen the posters of the movie and the name of the movie is Fanaa and not Fanaah. Even IMDB has it wrong. This has to be one of the worst Indian movies ever, It is riddled with inconsistencies, out of touch with reality, inexplicable twists, silly jokes. I feel ashamed that we export such trash to other countries and proudly lay claim to the fact that it grossed 32 crores in its first week.

Soundtrack[edit]

I don't know if the format of this article has followed a pre-set template for movies (it appears very similar to other articles about Hindi films). However, as a user, I would find it very useful to have the names of the songs included in the article (after all, most Hindi movies live or die on the strength of their soundtracks and people consider the songs quite important). But I didn't want to add a "Soundtrack" section if it would violate a pre-authorized, agreed-upon template. If that is not the case, I'd be happy to create the section with the appropriate links. --Smalek 16:17, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Synopsis[edit]

We need to expand the synopsis, currently its incomplete, and leaves out half the movie

STOP SPOILING THE PLOT[edit]

PERIOD. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.199.29.65 (talkcontribs)

Hmmmm...not exactly, the reader is sufficiently advised with a heading...you may, you may NOT read it...I suggest Spoilers are good enough.--Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut, which held its ground 15:06, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

Translation of lyrics[edit]

The song 'Mere haath mein ' has been translated incorrectly. K.

Discussion[edit]

Should this movie be included in Indian category, sure the cast and director may be Indian, but seems it has been funded by somebody else. I believe, many would agree...Now I hate Aamir Khaan, Kajol and others involved, to varying degrees.

But what is vulgarity to one, could be music for someone else, so I request Senior Editors and Experts in Bollywood to rethink its inclusion in Indian Category, maybe sth like miscellaneous.Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut, which held its ground 04:41, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Synopsis[edit]

The synopsis is horrible. It maunders on and on and on like a drunken bore. I would rewrite, but I haven't seen the movie. Can someone else prune it to one-third its present size? Zora 08:14, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Trivia removed[edit]

Some contributors seem to think that as long as something appears as trivia, it doesn't need to be referenced. None of the trivia for this film had any references. I left the trivia that can't really be referenced -- however, they can easily be falsified by a dictionary or a look at the DVD. Many of the trivia items that I removed were unverifiable stories about the casting or shooting. Some of them were potentially slander against living people. Was it Kajol who nixed filming in Kashmir? Possibly not, and saying so makes her look timorous. People, if you read it in a movie gossip column, it isn't necessarily true! If you must add it, reference the column, so that readers can judge the reliability of the source. Zora 09:06, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

Quotes[edit]

Do the quotes really need to be there? They are important to the plot, yes, but seem worthless. --Miss Burkle 16:19, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Controversy section confusion.[edit]

The controversy section could do with a little more explanation. What exactly was the self-immolating fool protesting about? Was he an Indian nationalist protesting at the lead actor's statements which could have been construed as being unpatriotic? It is not really clear why the film was so controversial and why showings required police protection. 1812ahill (talk) 21:34, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
