'Calender Girls' is a film that follows the lives of five calendar girls and highlights the glamorous and ugly side of the fashion industry.
Produced by Sangeeta Ahir’s Manglmurti Films and directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, the film releases on September 25, 2015. It stars debutants Akanksha Puri, Avani Modi, Kyra Dutt, Ruhi Singh and Satarupa Pyne.
Madhur has made films like ‘Chandni Bar, Page 3, Corporate and Traffic Signal’ which won him a lot of appreciation among the critics and public. But his next two films ‘Jail’ and ‘Heroine’ failed at the box-office.
While Madhur’s films are not exactly off-beat and do have a fair dose of commercialism in them, nevertheless he has faced criticism that his movies also tend to be a bit too realistic for the tastes of the audience.
‘Calendar Girls’ is based on the lifestyles of cheer leaders and swimsuit models who pose for calendars.
The movie is believed to contain references to Vijay Mallya’s ‘calendars and this fact has aroused a lot of interest in the movie.
So, will the ‘Calendar Girls’ put Madhur back on the winning track?
