Indian Bridal Dresses In Dedh Ishqiya Style Guide 2015.I love a film with style. If the plot or the acting isn’t up to scratch, at least you can enjoy feasting your eyes on the set and the costumes. In films like Dedh Ishqiya, where the storyline and performances are superb, great styling is the icing on the cake.While Arshad Warsi and Huma Qureshi are suitably dressed their respective roles, it’s the Nawabi styling of Madhuri and Naseeruddin Shah that stands out in Dedh Ishqiya. Naseeruddin Shah’s sherwanis and qaraqul (Jinnah Cap) are a little too “Mohammed Ali Jinnah on a bank note” to appeal this side of the border, but his shawls and kurtas are enviable.Costume designer Payal Saluja has concentrated on timeless classics such as Lucknowi chikankari in developing the Nawabi theme. A few key elements bring together her sophisticated yet regal look. Ethereal and delicate, Chikankari has enduring charm that reeks of the subtlety of old money. Saluja has used Lucknowi chikankari in several of Madhuri’s outfits. The beige peshwaz that Madhuri dances in to Jagaave Sari Raina is an all-over chikankari, trimmed with rich jamawar.
One of Madhuri’s most attractive outfits is a pale pink lucknowi sari with a simple gold edging. Lucknowi chikankari is particularly appealing in white and pastel shades and the sari shows the elegance of this embroidered fabric.Madhuri also wears an exquisite black chikankari kameez with a banrsi lengha in the Hamari Atariya Pe song which plays at the end during the title credits. The delicate embroidery of the chikankari material adds a lush yet subtle textural aspect to the outfit.
The shawls in Dedh Ishqiya are simply gorgeous. The sheer variety of luxurious shawls is fascinating – the actors carry Jamavar, Kalamkari and Kashmiri embroidered shawls. Naseeruddin Shah’s Khaalu is dressed mainly in Sherwanis and beautiful chikankari kurtas that are paired with some wonderful shawls.
