    Verdict - You wouldn't want to hang their Calendar in your house for sure.

    Calendar GirlsWatch trailerRelease date : September 25, 2015



    Madhur Bhandarkar has given such amazing films in past like Chandani Bar, Page 3, Corporate, Fashion & Traffic Signal. A director with such a stunning filmography giving Calendar Girls is just sad. I feel sad for Madhur Bhandarkar.

    Calendar Girls is a film revolving around 5 ambitious girls who think that somehow magically, their lives will change after they feature on some Calendar owned by business tycoon Rishabh Kukreja (Suhel Seth) & Timmy Sen (Ronit Roy). After their calendar shoot, their lives change magically. Their paths are different & their outcomes are also different. The 5 stories are not interconnected but they go parallel. One becomes a wife of a business tycoon, another girl becomes a reporter, another one goes on PR frenzy, one more calendar girl gets involved in match fixing scandal & the final one gets into escort business.

    Director Madhur Bhandarkar has tried showing both sides of the coin through the film. It's a good idea on paper because honestly, I haven't seen anyone in our country talking about Calendar Girls like people in the film were doing. Out of 5 debutants, Kyra Dutt who plays the character of Sharon Pinto is the best. She has acted pretty well & she is far more convincing in her role than other girls. Ruhi Singh as Mayuri Chauhan also stands out & gives a little comic relief in the film. But other than that, Akansha Puri, Avani Modi & Satarupa Pyne are just wood-faced throughout the film.

    The story is not convincing & surprisingly, the direction is not up to the mark. It just doesn't feel like Madhur Bhandarkar's film. Music is totally forgettable. Except Kyra Dutt & Ruhi Singh, nobody acts well. Every scene is caricature-ish. Dialogues are just too cliche & done to death. Calendar Girls may portray itself as a social-message film but seriously, just avoid it. Maybe he knew the film is bad, hence Madhur Bhandarkar himself appears in the film & lets his heroine praise his other past work. You wouldn't want to hang their Calendar in your house for sure.
