FASHION… a behind-the-scenes look

November 3, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

An absolutely hard-hitting behind-the-scenes look at the fashion industry… what with all the fake apparel designs, corporates calling the shots, the “wild” lifestyles, dope, casting couch, anxiety-behind-the-smiling-face!!! This movie attempts to portray the inner details of how the fashion industry work… how a middle-class girl’s dreams go overboard and how in her quest to fulfil her dreams, she comprises on the familial tapestry that actually was her support backbone.

Wouldn’t share the story details… but then would admit that inspite of Priyanka Chopra (as Meghna Mathur) being in the lead role, some other supporting actors took the honors… Kangna Raut and “Spare-me-the-horror” lispy designer (don’t know his real name). Though Madhur Bhandarkar, like every (yes, every) filmmaker puts the disclaimer of this movie not being reflective of any real-life character, I could gather from my sources that the role played by Kangna is based on model Carol Gracias (the wardrobe malfunction) while Priyanka’s role is inspired by the lives of models Alecia Raut and Shivani Kapoor.

Even the pain of being a long film (almost 3 hours… BTW I heard Madhur talking on a radio show about he having the script to make 3-4 Fashion movies but compressed it to one) didn’t let the interest levels of the movie audience go down… and all credit goes to Madhur Bhandarkar for handling this subject in an exemplary manner. An all-out “A-rated” entertainer… (yea, sad for Madhur that the censor board gave it an A-rating although I think it didn’t deserve it).
