Vishal Bhardwaj is known for making intense cinema, by juxtaposing elements of tragedy, deceit, love, crime and grey human shades. He is back again with Rangoon, which has already garnered a lot of attention owing to its stellar cast comprising of Saif Ali Khan, Shahid Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut. While one can expect Rangoon to be another cinematic delight for its fans, what is also equally stunning is the retro fashion adopted in the film, set in the 1940s during World War II.
The trailer gives glimpses into the film’s suave and colorful, vintage look. Kangana Ranaut’s character, inspired by the famous action heroine of that period (Fearless Nadia), is introduced in a rather seductive hunter attire inspired by vintage fashion. The badass actress adorns the short hair look with elegance and grace. The 1940s vintage dresses like the floral frocks, velvet vests, tunics, large hats complimented by her subtle makeup not just make Kangana look ravishing but also makes 1940s look ultra-glamorous. The actress is already seen in heavy floral sarees, balloon dresses with retro hairstyles at the film’s promotional events.
The Nawab kills the aristocratic look with great panache and elan. Saif Ali Khan’s look is inspired by the elite style of that period when the Indian upper-class fashion was dominated by the bow tie-coat look with kempt hair. Shahid Kapoor, on the other hand, rocks in a rustic soldier look with a heavy moustache and cropped hair that definitely hints to an upcoming fashion trend.
A lot remains to be discovered as the film is sure to delight audiences with its rich cinematography supported by various grandiose retro elements.
