A movie for lifetime remembrance
30 September 2015 | by preetrypSee all my reviews

CALANDER GIRLS - One of the best movies I've seen so far. A story that really touches you from inside

The story starts with five different girls hailing from five different locations who get selected as Calendar Girls. Right from the first scene the story gets interesting and starts attracting the interest of viewers.

As the story continues few of these girls fall victim of situations and people's plotting. It is required to say that all the girls have done a fabulous job and have done full justice to their roles. The acting really seems natural and classy though the girls are debutants for the Bollywood films.

The screenplay is a masterpiece, all the five stories are well woven and connected to each other that you'll be eagerly waiting for the next happenings. You'll never feel bored throughout the story and they will keep you stuck to the seats till the climax.

Avani Modi as Nazneen Malik(Pakistani girl) and Kyra Dutt as Sharen Pinto have done fantabulous acting. In fact Nazneen's character made us emotional and we were forced to cry when she dies in the end. The story completely touches the heart and we feel a sort of emotional bonding with it.

The film contains the reality angles as Match fixing, Escorting, Royal Family secret revelations, Anti Pakistani approach of people etc. which ate very well shown in such small duration of just 2 hours 11 Mins.

Direction is superb as always by Madhur Bhandarkar and the background score is really touchy. The music of film is highly appreciable and each song is well composed according to situations and mood. The best numbers are 'Khwaishein' and 'Awesome Mora Mahiya'.

The climax is very well executed and sums up the drama appropriately.

MY RECOMMENDATION - The movie is a must watch for all sort of adult audience and you'll really feel that the money spent for it is too less as compared to the masterpiece you'll get to watch. Such kinds of movies should be encouraged and required to be made to keep the standard of Bollywood storytelling really high.

My rating 10/10.
