‘Page 3’, ‘Fashion’, ‘Heroine’ and ‘Calendar Girls’: Too similar, yet too different. The official teaser of Madhur Bhandarkar’s long awaited ‘Calendar Girls’ is out and it looks like just another MB movie.
Watch the teaser of Calendar Girls here:
Madhur Bhandarkar is a genius; a fact that has been proved time and again by movies like ‘Traffic Signal’, ‘Page 3’ and ‘Fashion’, but then, those were the times when these movies were first-of-its-kind. Not anymore.
Cut to ‘Calendar Girls’, the script looks similar to ‘Fashion’ – five ultra pretty girls caught in the web of the fashion industry. They shoot to popularity and then fall, not only in career, but also in their lives. A steep fall, as they say.
The elements that are different from Madhur’s earlier movies are the faces. The five actresses – Avani Modi, Satarupa Pyne, Kyra Dutt, Akanksha Puri and Ruhi Singh – are beautiful and look dreamy in the teaser.
‘Calendar Girls’ does look promising only if we consider Madhur’s repertoire as a filmmaker and his ability to delve deep into human emotions. And we must say, he has a tough task ahead to land this movie of his in a newer territory, far different from ‘Page 3’ or ‘Fashion’s.
