Fashion Review: Madhur Bhandar the director has shown the dark side of celebrities in Page 3, business in Corporate and now he is showing us the dark side of models in fashion. The movie is really good that has a very interesting story based on a real life model played by Priyanka Chopra as Meghna Mathur. It shows the life of models when they are not on a catwalk wearing make-up, lipstick, nail polish and wearing glamorous dresses. But it was also very stylish, visually impressive and doesn’t just show the dark side because fashion is a great thing as well. Fashion has a very important message that we can all learn from especially the girls and young women who intend to be a model. The film may seem that it will only appeal to the female audience but the story is so good that it’s also good for male. Priyanka Chopra may have delivered six flops in a row but it was still her best performance of the year.
The story of Fashion is about Meghna Mathur who is a small town girl with a dream and the determination, she knew in her bones that she was meant to be famous. The world of fashion – the clothes, the colours, the make-up, all of these form a part of a fascinating world that Meghna longed to be a part of and she would do anything to reach the top. She reaches the peak of her success and rises to walk the ramps for leading designers across India. However karma catches up with Meghna as she slowly starts to pay the price for her fame and her journey to the top but her attempt at a comeback was going to be a near impossibility. Basically it is a journey of the rise and fall.
Whether Fashion is an original film or the music that has killer tunes, film director Madhur Bhandar always has the ability to surprise you. The music for Fashion is no different. Heavy beats combine well with powerful melodies on solid songs. The pick of the great songs are Fashion Ka Jalwa and the superb Mar Jaawa. Overall it was such a good film and I would recommend it to those who want a different story but not to those who don’t like people talking throughout the whole film.
