Storyline

Refusing the accept the same fate as her sisters, Tara and Meghna, and get married to a boy from the same Caste, Kanpur-based Sona Mishra alienates herself from her accountant father, and re-locates to Mumbai in order to act in movies. She meets with Satish Chaudhary who offers to assist her in getting a lead role. Years later, all he could manage was bit parts, leaving her frustrated but hopeful. She meets with another struggling actor, Vikram Jaisingh, and both become fairly intimate. When a lead role with Satish does not materialize, and his wife, Pinky, becomes suspicious, she decides to depart. Disappointment and shock also await Vikram when he is candidly told by his friend, Abhimanyu Gupta, that he has no talent and must consider returning back in Delhi to assist his businessman father. It does look like the end of the road for both Sona and Vikram - leaving the question open whether they will continue with their relationship &/or return to their respective homes.

Trivia

In the movie after the character of Farhan Akhtar becomes successful, and a party is thrown to welcome the new star in the industry, Karan Johar delivers a very succinct dialogue that's symptomatic of the state of affairs of the industry. He points out to Hrithik Roshan, by giving the examples of living legendary actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan, that it is in the situations, where the established stars refuse to work outside there images, that an opportunity is created for a new face to be launched in the industry. As a matter of fact these moments of disruption, in reality too, have created new stars in the industry that have launched themselves into the dizzying heights of new success. See more »

'fashion' in billowed
12 February 2009 | by wishvishhSee all my reviews

this movie has a great star cast. after farrah khan's 'om shanti om', this movie had shots of most of the celebs in billowed. yet, the storyline was not very new.

the performances by all the actors were really good which kept me watching the movie without getting bored. the characterisations of rishi kapoor, dimple kapadia and her on screen daughter were really good and the actors had done justice to their roles.

'fashion' showed the struggles and betrayals that a model would face in the fashion industry and now this movie shows the same of an actor (and an actress) in the Hindi movie industry.

even though the story line is very much predictable it is still worth watching...
