Do you think language is a barrier to express one's feelings. Why only those who speak and write English are respected a lot? Gauri Shinde has explored to find answers for these questions in English Vinglish.
Thanks to versatile yesteryear heroine Sridevi making a comeback to play the title role, almost half the job of director Gauri Shinde is made easy.
Back almost 15 years, Sridevi sizzles in her role as Sashi. The movie chronicles the apathy of of a woman, who lacks knowledge of English.
The movie takes a dig at those who makes fun of those who can't speak English. The movie has Mehdi Nebbou, Priya Anand besides a sweet cameo by Ajith. Add Amit Trivedi has come up with some songs that adds momentum to the story.
Sashi (Sridevi), a middle-aged housewife is the mother of two children.
Sinde she doesn't know English, for her husband (Adil Hussain) and his daughter Sashi is the object of ridicule. She is forced to go to New York for a wedding. There she decides to learn the language. She joins a English speaking course. Life changes.
Did she teach everyone that understanding and speaking a foreign language is no easy task is what the climax is. Sridevi hogs all limelight. She is right there garnering all attention with her subtitle performance.
She plays her role with aplomb. Watch out for Ajith's cameo that has a punch dialogue too. Priya Anand plays a breezy role.
English Vinglish is awesome and simple. It conveys what it wanted to convey. Watch out for the emotional elements narrated well.
