The photography is very good, the story less so. Characters are not very developed. Rafina is portrayed as an innocent girl, but is actually quite vain. Also, the fashion industry is presented in a very naive manner as an empowering world. Although that it not the focus of the movie, heels and make-up are expensive, damaging, and rather oppressive too. The total rejection of social conservatism annoys me. Rafina will probably be happier being a model, but I'm not sure her example is scalable to the whole Pakistani society. Ultimately, the film sends a very individualistic message, and typically favors an oppression over another.
