Highway is a 2014 Indian road drama film written and directed by Imtiaz Ali. It tells the story of a girl Veera (Alia Bhatt) daughter of a rich Delhi-based business tycoon who is abducted a day before her wedding. She views the abduction as a blessing in disguise, since she finally has the chance to experience life and find herself. The film’s soundtrack album is composed by A. R. Rahman with lyrics penned by Irshad Kamil. The “Patakha Guddi” song by Nooran sisters (Jyoti & Sultana) captures the spirit of this new found freedom of the protagonist & her relationship with God.
O Jugni O,
Patakha guddi O,
Nashe mein udd jaaye re haaye re
Sajje khabbe dhabbe killi ho…
अबNoरMal pays tribute to Irshad Kamil’s poetry & the Truck that is the mnemonic for a new found freedom in its own unique फilmy नautanki way for posterity as a collector’s item!
Presenting “Patakha Guddi” a fully handpainted Choli that celebrates colorful Truck Art & those pithy proverbs with all the “spalling” mistakes that just make long distance road travel so much fun! Colorful pompoms & a 3D look of the Truck on the Choli back.
One such sweet tribute to commemorate all long road trips across India.
The choli can be made sleeveless or with sleeves.
Material: Pure Chanderi silk cotton with Shibori Tie & Dye.
Shibori Tie& dye is a Japanese art of dying fabric. It involves twisting, scrunching, folding and tying or binding the cloth, which is then dipped in dye. Where the cloth has been bound or tied, the dye resists the cloth, creating color and white patterns.
The model here is wearing a Pink shade.
This Choli can be made in 4 amazing color options - Pink, Peach, Red & Orange.
Please note that colours and tones shown here are as close to the original as possible. Small variations may occur due to light, individual screen peculiarities or resolution.
Sizes: The choli comes in standard ready to wear sizes 34 to 48 with a 2 inch margin inside for alterations.
Delivery: This limited edition choli will be dispatched within 2-3 weeks of confirmed order with payment.
