Calendar Girls Movie Info:.
Calendar Girls is a 2015 Indian drama film. Directed by Madhur Bhandarkar and co-produced by Sangeeta Ahir and Bhandarkar Entertainment. The film’s music was composed by Meet Bros Anjjan and Amaal Mallik.
The only way a film like this can become palatable is if its gaze mined the multiple painful ironies inherent in the situation the girls find themselves in. one gets pushed into ‘VIP escort service’. another into being a trophy wife, another into a honey-trap between a greedy cricket match fixer and players. These strands are all played out to the hilt, hammering out the message that if you will willingly do these things.
The film released on 25 September 2015.
Initial release:. September 25, 2015.
Director:. Madhur Bhandarkar.
Music composed by:. Amaal Mallik.
At one stage in the film, which up until then has been swimming in a sea of predictable clichés about the ‘glamour’ world, a spiky little plot-point yanks back our wandering attention: a ‘calendar girl’ attends a funeral, and her `fee’ for so doing is a couple of cool lakhs.
This is a moment. It tells us, just the way a similar one did in Madhur Bhandarkar’s earlier ‘Page 3’ where a fleet of liveried drivers chatter freely about their wealthy employers, that no one – alive or dead — is spared by the ever-burgeoning army of ‘celebrity’ publicists, and their hungry clients. Each moment is milked, and turned into an opportunity for publicity.
When a famous person dies, a person struggling up the fame ladder needs to be in attendance. The next day there will be photos of the funeral, and you, yes you, will be seen surrounded by famous people. Then you will, by association, become famous. Tada.
