Calendar Girls (2015)

Cast – Akanksha Puri, Avani Modi, Kyra Dutt, Ruhi Singh, Satarupa Pyne

Writer/Director – Madhur Bhandarkar

We know your forte Mr. Bhandarkar, about portraying the anatomy of the glamour world but this one surprises us about how repetitive can one get!

The first 10 minutes into the movie and you begin to doubt if this product is from an award winning director who has churned out the likes of Page 3, Chandni Bar and Fashion!

The flaws are many… an old dilapidated story, outdated sub stories, unbelievably amateur dialogues, bad cinematography with unnecessary close up shots (especially when the acting prowess is nothing to boast about and neither are the make-up finishes flawless), less than classy costumes (considering that they are portraying the creme of the glamour world) and unbearable music.

The film is low on production values and directorial skills.

I would have to watch “Fashion” again too wash off this bad taste.
