English Vinglish Review - Sridevi makes a dazzling returnOct 6, 2012NewsIn a season full of comebacks, one that has already generated great buzz is Sridevi's return vehicle, English Vinglish. With some good songs & decent promos, how does this one fare?\rThis ones a slice of life film that is backed by a knockout Sridevi performance.Shashi Godbole (Sridevi) is your quintessential housewife who takes care of the kids, cooks superb food & is a doormat for her husband. Her biggest issue is that she isnt good with English. Her kids make fun of her, her husband belittles her & when she goes to America for a wedding, she decides to learn the language. The film deals with her rise, her relationships with her classmates & a rightly underplayed innocent, romantic track between her & Laurent, a co-student.The movie is filled with cliches but when the genre is such, you can get away with it. The narrative dips at any many points & some parts are really filmi, but for most of the journey, it holds its ground.The real star and backbone of this film is Sridevi. She emotes beautifully & it only feels like yesterday when she last did her last film. 15 years have gone past but the acting finesse hasn't.\rAmitabh Bachchan pitches in with a hoot of a cameo.Director Gauri Shinde weaves a good product & will leave most people with a smile on their faces. My only issue is that though its all heart, it lacks a bit of soul.To sum it up, watch English Vinglish for a spirited Sridevi show, a beautifully sent out message & a perfect Sunday evening with the family. Watch it with your mom for added effect.Inspector VIjay English Vinglish Review - Sridevi makes a dazzling return Oct 6, 2012

This ones a slice of life film that is backed by a knockout Sridevi performance.

Shashi Godbole (Sridevi) is your quintessential housewife who takes care of the kids, cooks superb food & is a doormat for her husband. Her biggest issue is that she isnt good with English. Her kids make fun of her, her husband belittles her & when she goes to America for a wedding, she decides to learn the language. The film deals with her rise, her relationships with her classmates & a rightly underplayed innocent, romantic track between her & Laurent, a co-student.

The movie is filled with cliches but when the genre is such, you can get away with it. The narrative dips at any many points & some parts are really filmi, but for most of the journey, it holds its ground.

The real star and backbone of this film is Sridevi. She emotes beautifully & it only feels like yesterday when she last did her last film. 15 years have gone past but the acting finesse hasn't.

Amitabh Bachchan pitches in with a hoot of a cameo.

Director Gauri Shinde weaves a good product & will leave most people with a smile on their faces. My only issue is that though its all heart, it lacks a bit of soul.

To sum it up, watch English Vinglish for a spirited Sridevi show, a beautifully sent out message & a perfect Sunday evening with the family. Watch it with your mom for added effect.
