For a film that is called A Gentleman, you actually get three. Well, two technically – Sidharth Malhotra and Suniel Shetty – but since this is a style review and Malhotra plays two very different characters in the film so we will go with three.
As a perfectionist engineering whiz spending his days in a cubicle, Malhotra as Gaurav is dressed nerd-appropriate in basic formal pants and shirts. And then also fashionably preppy in jackets, slim ties or fedora and mirrored sunglasses when the songs demand it. As the dangerous, armed and tatted Rishi, Malhotra is in vests and often without when the six-pack abs and swag are on display or in leather jackets and sleek black suits while on a mission.
The corporate dress code doesn't apply to Gaurav's colleague Kavya played by Jacqueline Fernandez who is in the shortest, tightest skirts and brightest jackets of all her colleagues – it might be in Miami but it is still a corporate office, right? But this is Bollywood, and sporting a wavy long bob she looks as fabulous in her cubicle as in the bright bikini tops, kaftans with mint nail paint on the beach. Nailing cool casual in distressed jeans and tank tops, denim cut offs and high heels, pole dancing at office parties, Kavya is no gangster moll in this thriller but her brief was to be just as sexy.
At 56, Suneil Shetty, in all his salt and pepper lumber sexual glory (not counting the wooden performance), is looking his best ever. Dressed in military colours, epaulettes on his well-fitted shirts, hipster glasses and an oversize chronograph on his wrist, he reigns dangerously supreme out of his stylish exposed brick, metal and leather living quarters. He is pin-up material here ladies, erase the 90s from your memory.
