Are you ready for an expose on the fashion industry? Where designers pass off 'Indira Market, Bangkok' stuff as their own creation? Where ad agency/fashion mag honchos call the shots? Wild lifestyles, backstage dramas, wardrobe malfunctions, casting couch… ouch, ouch, ouch!
Madhur Bhandarkar, the undisputed king of realistic fare, comes up with yet another hard-hitting film that enlightens you, moves you, motivates and deflates you, even shocks and surprises you and, of course, entertains you.
Fashion tells the story of a small-town girl with a dream and the determination to make it a reality. Meghna [Priyanka Chopra] is ambitious; she wants to be a supermodel. She realises her dreams and rises to walk the ramps for leading designers across India. But Meghna has to pay the price for her fame and her journey to the top. Her career starts sliding downwards. In this journey, she encounters a number of people, most importantly, Shonali [Kangna Ranaut] and Janet [Mugdha Godse] as well as Abhijit Sareen [Arbaaz Khan], a tycoon who controls the fashion industry.
Given the fact that Fashion is all about the fashion industry, the narrative is inevitably filled with lots of glam-n-glitz moments. The fashion shows, the stunning models, the superb styling, the vibrant colours and the behind the scenes drama is worth every penny...
But it's not just ramp shows and style-n-fashion here. There's a story too - of three models. One, the rise of an unknown into a supermodel. Two, the fall of a supermodel to dust. Three, the ambitious model not achieving success, but opting for a marriage of convenience.
On the whole, Fashion has tremendous curiosity and shock value. Must watch!
