Of Fashion,irks, music and part 2

Strange title- hmmmm I can’t help it as my brain is ordering me to write on all these varied topics and as time s running out I am blending them in one single post!!!


Well its about the movie Fashion. First things first- film pundits might be calling it Priyanka Chopra’s best till date, but I sincerely felt anyone could have done justic to that role. People who striked the right chords were Kangana Ranaut and Kitu Gidwani. Kangana Ranuat has by far become so convenient to such powerful roles. She does have repetitive sketch but she has handled the role with great sincerity and maturity of a 21 yr old. The movie has extracted the expressions which showcse her journey from a mean super model to a lunatic drug addict. Kitu Gidwani is so dignified and subtle that I feel all actresses specially the ones from OTT TV daily soaps should take lessons from her. 

Madhur Bhandarkar’s movies have always ended with lumps in our throats. This one is an exception. It leaves you with agonizing pain cursing its length and sad melodramatic fashion sequences. Speaking of Fashion shows- the title does not lives up to its standards. Its a story of models sorry ‘Supermodels’ and fashion has nothing to do with it apart from occasional remarks on – avant garde, summer collection, Indira Market et al. What made me laugh real out was character of Raj Babbar. The same guy who doesn’t approves of his daughter’s modelling aspirations is torn when he sees her berserk. He is the same guy who knows fashion world has changed her daughter and still coaxes her to go to the big mean world!! Okay I admit he was supportive and was trying to make her brave-but like that???? Oh c’mon. And then the second laughter came when we saw Priyanka Chopra fully dressed for the fashion show where her parents are also present- I mean OKAY!!! Yeah right!

And why did they had to kill Shonali when she was perfectly on the road to recovery! Was it because Madhur had to give the complete focus to Priyanka? Can’t Shonali be equally made the International supermodel?

Kangna Ranaut is looking killer in the movie. She has the attitude, the mood and the frame to look a supermodel. But I sincerely feel she needs to work real hard on her diction. The way she said -‘congrats’ god I cringed in my chair.

The only person who I felt could have sizzled the character of Meghna (Priyanka Chopra’s) is Bipasha Basu. Man she looks awesome and acts great guns. She was the reason people didn’t notice Deepika Padukone in Bachna Ae Haseeno. Priyanka Chopra is not looking modelling material anywhere. (I have never liked her ever since she was crowned as Miss World which was a big gaffe or fashion faux pas but I am not being biased. I am writing what I genuinely felt)


No this is not about Fashion’s music. Its about music of all Hindi albums that have been releasing these days. I am giving the recipe for average Hindi album here:


One cup of Hinglish lyrics

Mixed spices (Pritam/Himes Baba/Vishal and Shekhar/Shankar Ehsaan and Loy) (I mean whatever happened to Jatin, Lalit, Nadeem Shravans -eh!!!)

One cup of Hinglish Lyrics (small town girl, desi girl, Tandooori Nights) – yes this ingredient is repeated and to be used for marination and sauce as well!!!

A pinch of Mohit Chauhan, Raahat Fateh Ali Khan, Labh Janjua, Hard Kaur, Mika, Shreya Ghoshal (I mean whatever happened to Udit narayans, shaan, Alka Yagnik, Kavita krishnamoorthy and all)

Leftovers of remixed songs of same versions titled – tiger style, lounge mix, RD Style, yeh style, woh style, sabka style

Drizzle of some rap by Labh Janjua and why not Snoop Dogg


Mix all the ingredients together in a blender till it comes out in the shape of a CD. Garnish it with a 100 fold something CD Cover and add hawwwwtt images of heroines and even heroes in bare nothing essentials in a hope this might promote the album.

The dish is ready to serve and to be enjoyed on streets in cars of some dudes who have serious hearing disabilities or some other dudes & dudettes who have some strange organ deformities in their ears and supported by a device called iPOD!!!!


  1. I mean seriously what is irking me most these days is – have I not mentioned boldly everywhere (Facebook, Orkut, blogs and every where I am networkingly active -that I am married!!!!!). Guys don’t you have self respect!!!!!! May be I should have sent you my wedding invitation to make you believe yes I AM MARRIED!!
  2. My fingers thrust inside my palms when I hear some random person specially a dork friend (point one to be read in conjugation with this point) I had back in school or college ages ago saying – Hi kya ho raha hai Yaar!! Yaar- me? Oh yeah right-specially when I can’t even remember your face and having you as my classmate yeah go ahead have liberties and call me yaar. Gosh I hate this word.
  3. The lovely long list of spam comments on wordpress. Akismet- you’re not doing such a great job you know. 200+ spam comments ranging from russian brides to investments solutions to adwares to softwares to pervertwares!! We have all in our spam roll.


No there is no part 2 for Closer Closure. And yes machaa– Mohit has been there in my other story as well. He is a dork and trust me a bigger one that too in real life! Amit – sorry dear I am not talking about your cousin and even if I do I don’t know what is he doing with Maya 😉

The story ends here only. I am not sure if it genuinely calls for part 2. For me the story is real and something that I feel will happen sometimes in real life few years down the lane. I want you to wish Dia peace of mind.


I want to say three cheers to Avant Garde Awards Blogging team for a spectacular work they are doing. Its a great effort and a personal thank to Poonam. You are a rockstar! All the best for the D-day…..

The sun is gorgeous today. Probably will relax and see some DVDs. Oh yeah by the way New Zealand went to poll yesterday and John Key is the new Prime Minister. Helen Clarke is out after 9 long years of being Prime Minister. I voted for John Key too (my first ever vote in life….). Lets see what he has in store for us in the current global financial crisis. One thing which I am happy and content about is he is pretty serious about Global Warming and is planning to reduce NZ’s fair share to it by a whooping 50%..Kudoz and all the best….

Okay I am done here. I was planning to make Aam ka achaar (Mango pickle)today  but I don’t think I will be able to do that as there is no fennel (saunf) (hubby dear loves saunf and mukhwaas- he devours all of them in one go!!). Gosh I miss India, I would have to just get out of the house and get it from the local general store. But yeah..I am stuck….

Au Revoir….
