Product Description

Original UTV Motion Pictures

Review

The screenplay by Madhur, Anuradha Tiwari and Ajay Monga peeks deep into the reality of the fashion world and touches every single aspect of the industry such as casting couch, gay designers, wild lifestyle of models who can t handle success, backstage dramas during major fashion shows, manipulative head honchos and attitude problems of successful people.

Priyanka in the most challenging roles of her career, delivers the goods successfully. Kangana despite a short role ends up giving an award worthy performance. Even though it is her debut film, Mugdha Godse shows extreme confidence. Arbaaz Khan is good and so is Sameer Soni. Arjan Bajwa acts well. Kitu Gidwani is graceful whereas Ashwin Mushran is very like able.

Fashion is a must watch for many reasons so go for it and trust us you wont be disappointed. --platform47.com

After Chandni Bar, Page 3, Corporate and Traffic Signal, Madhur has hit a master stroke with Fashion, exposing the murky underbelly of the most glamorous profession in the world. Never getting preachy and avoiding stereo types, Madhur efficiently handles the subject without getting judgemental even once. He has outshined himself in the technical department, making Fashion his most slick product till date. His perfect casting also lifts the film to a completely different level. In fact one wouldn t be surprised that Madhur managed to win a number of Awards with this film as well! --platform47.com

Three times National Award winner, Madhur Bhandarkar is lookud upon as he finest film maker of the Indian Film Induustry. His movies always manage to provoke attention of the audience by the virtue of being a project coming out of his think bag. He is meant to do a kind of research work that no other person does. He is known as a perfectionist. Fashion was meant to be the most accomplished project ever taken up by him. Fashion aims to focus our attention at life of models as a part of the behind the stage crew! Great acting by each actor combined with songs that bring emotion each time they reach your ears, Fashion is a movie that definitely makes you cherish the fact of watching a serious entertainer each time you put it on! --platform47.com

An exhilirating emotional experience!
Satya Shodhak
The subject matter is very complex, dark side of the fashion business for models, drugs, alcohol, broken hearts, frivolous relationships. etc.
Mr. Ed
The movie Fashion was very "at the edge of your seat" type of film.

An outstanding movie. Great depiction of the dark side of fashion world and how people use and throw each other. Priyanka Chopra is a brilliant actor.Arjan Bajwa is not just dashing and cool-looking, he has talents to match.

Most importantly the movie is about redemption and rebirth. Meghna Mathur realizes that she just got lucky due to Shonali and tries to help Shonali. An exhilirating emotional experience!

The movie Fashion was very "at the edge of your seat" type of film. Although it was very long, I was still entertained the whole time. The film is about a small town girl Meghna Mathur(Priyanka Chopra)trying to pursue her dream as a supermodel. Meghna's longing ambition and drive for success makes her unreasonable. On her way up the latter of success she encounters a new side of her. This side does not only show her arrogance(Forgetting those who care for her, Affairs, Drinking, Drugs, not showing up for work, etc) it shows her way down the latter. You will be asking whats next.

It is worth the buying, the songs will get stuck in your head.

It's an old story--a small-town girl with big dreams of supermodel stardom. And it's no revelation that there's a dark side to fashion. Sexually-degraded, drug-addled models have been depicted in film plenty--but not so much in India. The 2008 release of 'Fashion'--an exposé-like cautionary tale about the industry there--was well-timed. Indian models have been emerging on the world stage as never before--globally, they've become de rigueur on catwalks and commercials in recent years. And the two leads in 'Fashion'--actresses Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Ranaut--produce forceful, renewed insight into just how ugly the beauty industry is with performances that swept all the major film awards.

The director Madhur Bhandarkar is known for hard-hitting realism and gritty topics. Marginalized figures, such as women and gay men, populate his films, and in fact, most of his stories are told from the perspective of a female protagonist. The main character in 'Fashion' is Meghna, played by Chopra, a middle-class girl who quickly compromises her middle-class values as soon as she lands in Mumbai with a chaste, cheesy portfolio that gets her nowhere. She's no wide-eyed wimp--she was tough enough to tell off her unsupportive parents and leave home, and it's her aggressive confidence that gets her attention--but she's not comfortable when she has to get risque to get ahead. Nor does it sit well with her when she has no choice but to move in with a male roommate, fellow struggling model Manav (Arjan Bajwa). He's a true friend, though, and they end up in love.

Meghna's also got an aspiring fashion designer, Rohit (Ashwin Mushran), in her corner, along with another wannabe model, Janet (Mugdha Godse).

Being a huge Bollywood Fan I can honestly say that, Bollywood has literally out done itself with this Film!!!! The Fashions, the music, the sets, the storyline, and the actresses and actors all magnificent. Buy this one you will not be dissapointed.

This movie is about the fashion and modeling industry where some models descend into despair with alcohol and drugs - a story that has been told many times before (but not as well) by Hollywood (not saying it's a remake). One model falls completely to the bottom of the well of despair while another one falls only half way down and tries to help her up too. This is a quality film and easy to give a 5 but it does not have all the usual attributes that cause me to buy Indian films.

If you are looking for an Indian film that is funny and full of songs and dancing with some over acting thrown in here and there, (one of the reasons why I buy Indian films) then maybe this film is not for you. That said, the music and background vocals are the best I've heard in this type of film. Models model clothes that look like they could actually be worn on this planet and real top models (by anyone's standards) model and act in this film.

So many actors do such a good job in this film that it is hard to single out anyone. Priyanka Chopra is an absolute goddess of beauty and her acting (in this film) is right up there with the best. Kangana Ranaut (a young actress playing Shonali, (the top model) is brilliant in a tough roll. Mugdha Gogse (a real model who acts in the film) plays a wonderfully light hearted but mentally strong woman who is unaffected by the down side of the modeling industry. The male stars playing gay designers are, in a word, fabulous (they walk the edge without being too much). As in real life, there are 2 groups of people - those who use people and throw them away and those who help people while risking themselves. This is what makes the bittersweet ending so gratifying.

If you like the kind of movies where a small-town kid makes it big, then this is a good one for you. The storyline seems pretty real - the mother wants her daughter to follow her dreams while the father is concerned that it's not a good career move. They find out about her mistakes but still love and support her.

The meteoric rise in the fashion industry of the main character is really fun to watch. I agree with the other reviewers the fashion shows and other models seem like the real thing. You see the naive young girl slowly lose her ethics until she doesn't recognize herself any more and has a breakdown. But then with the help of her father she finds herself again and finds her strength to become the good person she can be again, and be true to her friends.

Excellent film!
