I had been to watch “Finding Fanny” in Garuda Mall in Bangalore with friends & family. The movie was different, it had its moments but very slow. Many stores in Garuda Mall were getting renovated that late night. I saw the sign board from Allen Solly and spotted a typo. I double checked with my folks if the spelling was indeed wrong. At Oneindia I am known for spotting typos, people hate me for that but take it in the right spirit (so I am told).
