Now, Wake Up Sid and me have had a complicated relationship so far. Even though I did not like it at my first viewing, this movie has kinda grown on me, just because it sets out to achieve what it is – a non-preachy, no-story, lukewarm eye-pleaser. Lemme tell you why on the first viewing it did not appeal to me at all – because of its unreal depiction of a single unemployed lady suddenly living in a ‘lavish’ [ by Mumbai standards ] apartment and doing all sorta renovation work on it even before she has to see her first paycheck. And then it all goes gaga about Sid waking up – but what was he waking up to? Becoming more responsible and waking up to Duniyadari? Seriously? That is shown by a montage of Sid organising Aisha’s room, and then going for an intern photographer job for a Mumbai magazine – which would pay how much – 15k at best? We are talking about the son of a CEO of Flower Shower – a company which supplies showers and bathroom fittings to Birla as well as a Bhajiya-wala. Anywho!!! enough of complaining.
On my recent holiday trip home, I caught up on Wake Up Sid for the second time [ courtesy Air India’s in-flight entertainment ] and I couldn’t stop noticing the huge range of awesome tee-s that Sid [ Ranbir Kapoor ] flaunts throughout the length of the movie. Now, I am no fashion guru like some of you awesome people are. But I can definitely point out what’s cool and what’s not. And Sid’s range of T-Shirts are definitely on the cool list. Here’s one for instance.
Costume Designers Manish Malhotra and Priyanjali Lahiri have certainly struck the right cord.
Check the whole bunch after the jump. And yeah, look at what the designers decide Ranbir to wear when he “WAKES UP”. Beware: LOTSA Screenshots in this post.
Here’s the best one.The best T-Shirt ever..behold people…
In the words of the great Freddie Mercury, I want it all. Now have a look at what they did to him to show what happens to Sid’s fashion sense when he “wakes” up.
Sid decides to wear a shirt now…
And even wear a ladies kurti…
Okay, enough of fashion talk. Lemme just conclude with a few more screenshots capturing the moments that I really liked in this movie.
And last of all….
Phew! That took me watching the DVD three times to get my desired screenshots. I wish I showed this much dedication in everything else. :P. Now go on, jump to the comments.
