Fashion


i watched the long awaited fashion.i had been meaning to watch it for ages but nothing seemed to work out. sometimes the timings weren't right and somethings the movie theatre.anyway finally i watched the movie i knew i just had to watch.


Madhur Bhandarkar's movie are pioneers for realistic movies. they narrate a story of a segment of the society in its starkness and detailing. i was a little apprehensive because i didn't know if the movie could deliver. the actor who startled me was, Mudga Godse, she was such a natural. Kangna Ranaut was her usual nautanki, yelling and screaming banshee, playing her role of a drug addict supermodel, on her way out well. but the show stopper was Priyanka Chopra undoubtedly. her eyes spoke volumes, it mirrored hurt, dejection, attitude, love, and arrogance, with its easy succession.what is splendid is the eye for detail and the confident finishing touch. it could have been a narration of raise and fall of one, then the other rides her waves until she too is pulled down. but no. it is the rise and fall is there, deftly handled by the director. the message is loud and clear, it is never to late to try and that turns the story around. the movie gives us a situation and two solutions, resounding several warnings of the outcome of it. it is ultimately how we handle pressure in a given condition. the music score of the film is quite good. this movie is definitely deserves a second watch.

my rating 3.5 on 5

i wonder why fashion industry made such an hue and cry about the movie. i think htey should be proud of it and thank Madhur Bhandarkar to make such a movie, because only he ccould have handle such a topic with panache.

before seconding mayz i would like to say...

Towards the end the story seemed dragged to a somewhat happy ending.Kangna was wow..she really breathes fire into the frame every time she comes in...Fabulous performance. I wish she had a bigger role but guess ,its not the director's fault and instead, the censor people worked overtime chopping her scenes.
What I particularly found amusing was the glam doll Kangna Ranaut's character managed to be even after chronic drug abuse. Her makeup was flawless even in the worst of her times (when she cried incessantly) and even after she died.

and now i second mayz
take care

one think i didnt like abt the movie is after the stripping thing my mistake with kankana during the walk.. it wasnt taken bravely.. i think there shud have been a better reaction.. like in true sense when the similar incident happened media said it was not a bog deal.. huwa toh huwa.. it was just an accident..

priyanka chopra was really good
kangana was good too, hope she gets to play a normal role in her next ventures...bechari has been playing the same since gangster
but none of the designers were portrayed well
