I like the movie. though it has many similarities with Madhur's another film "Page 3" . the movie tells an unending human tale of ambition, success, degradation and re-emergence set against the backdrop of the fashion industry.
Madhur Bhandarkar indulges in a lot of clichés (like gay designers and exploiting bosses) but perhaps they could not have been avoided. After all, clichés they may be, they reflect the truth. Trouble starts when Madhur’s(the protagonist) passion with his subjects begins to supersede their relevance to the story. That’s where ‘Fashion’ becomes heavy, tiring and exhausting experience.
