If you really want to watch "Heroine" n "Barfi" then watch Sridevi in this movie... still looks stunning n great acting!!!more

i really liked this film!! it was so simple and such a feel-good movie, but at the same time it wasn't a cliched happy ending. the ending was surprising yet inevitable - exactly how every film's ending should be. i loved that it was set in new york and i thought it had some very interesting, touching themes, about <span id="remainingText916682226_771308462" style="display:none;"> love, respect, culture and...more

Money, fame and a knowledge of English. In India, these 3 factors play a huge role in how society judges an individual. English Vinglish is the story of a woman who does not know English and is made to feel insecure by her family and society at large. The film is a light -hearted yet touching and transformational <span id="remainingText912926876_771308462" style="display:none;"> journey of Shashi. Circumstances make her...more

Was an OK flick. Another silly story, with some comedy. Was definitely more about Sri Devi's return!more

Great movie. Good acting and direction.more

It is the best movie evermore

fantastic piece.....quite a touching experience. a must watch!more

awsum concept.....must watch with your family......hats off to sridevi for amazing acting.....loved every second of it,,,,,,:)))))))))more

Nice movie but what has Sridevi done to her face?more

Sridevi is back,with a bang!<br />English Vinglish, just like the Laddoos, it's lead protagonist Shashi so craftily supplies throughout the movie, is as simple, sweet and tasty.<br />worth watchingmore

Shashi Godbole and Sridevi walks hand to hand in this movie. After watching the movie, you cannot imagine English Vinglish without Sridevi and Srdievi's comeback wouldn't have been better than this and she stretches herself to the best level she can. Her role is very strong and she enacts it in a brilliant manner. <span id="remainingText899100960_771308462" style="display:none;"> Worth a watch.more

Probably a minority view but the film did not live up to the hype..was very predictable and slow-pacedmore

Brilliant film without a dull moment.more

Sridevi is back after a 15 year gap and what a comeback it is! Her character Shashi is a hardworking dutiful housewife and part-time Entrepreneur who finds joy in her work and serving her family with a lot of love but never gets the respect she deserves. Her family finds her lack of English skills a source of <span id="remainingText791183675_771308462" style="display:none;"> entertainment and at times embarrassment. She...more

A delightful movie, a strong story, a breathtakingly refreshing performance by the legendary Bollywood actress Sridevi, who truly has brought a much-needed breath of fresh air into Bollywood films for sure! A must-watch for Bollywood fans the world over! :)more

Excellent Movie! .. 5 Stars! .. Sridevi is absolutely fantabulous! .. its a must see!more

Shashi Godbole is a housewife. She runs a small catering business, and everyone loves her delicious laddoos. She does everything that she can to keep her children happy, even if they ridicule for her unfit pronunciation of 'jazz'. She doesn't speak or understand English. So does that makes her and everything she does <span id="remainingText882928213_771308462" style="display:none;"> less important? Why is...more

LOY MACHEDO'S MOVIE REVIEW - English Vinglish (2012)<br /><br />A Thought-Provoking Family Entertainer with a Fantastic Caste of Gifted Actors, a Great Script and Award Worthy Performances from Sridevi �&quot; This is one movie I would recommend as a Must Watch of the Year. Writer / Director Guari has done absolute justice to <span id="remainingText908323876_771308462"...more

Sridevi who had been away from the spotlight for a decade and a half, comes back in this star vehicle, with her acting chops all there and matured like good wine. This film has a wonderful ensemble cast aptly cast and directed by Cheeni Kum's and Pa's Director's wife. Sridevi is everywhere and leaves with you when you <span id="remainingText838163263_771308462" style="display:none;"> reluctantly pull...more

Being one of the most realistic film made in the Hindi Film Industry, English Vinglish is light-headed entertainment consisting senti-mental depth. It seemed to portray it's message without raising as many &quot;ifs&quot; and &quot;buts&quot; as other bolywood films do (for example, 3 idiots). The acting is also quite remarkable.more

Now this is a masterclass in how to make a comeback!!!! Not &quot;Aaja Nachle&quot;, not Dangerous Ishq&quot;!!!! Sridevi really nails this one perfectly.<br /><br />Using the lack of knowledge and fluency of the english language as a backdrop, this movie tackles some major issues with such ease and simplicity that you cannot help but <span id="remainingText800566426_771308462"...more

What a simple but well put story........ A good jibe for those wannabes who talk things like &quot;Sheee, McDonalds mein aake Hindi mein kaise baat kar sakte hai&quot;more

Awesome nd touching moviemore

Sri is always awesome..............!!!more

this is a really cool movie,really funny and i say its a must watch moviemore

superb and heart warming!!!!!!!!!more

Good feel good movie that boasts of an amazing comeback performance of arguably the queen of bollywood.more

nice picture, with the perfect amount of domestic flavor and no cliche jokes.more

What a beautiful movie. Part Bollywood, part girl-power chick flick. Normally I wouldn't have given it such high ratings (due to the chick-flickishness of it) but I was at a place in my life that made me relate 100%. I cried at the end... and I never cry in movies. :-)more

English Vinglish succeeds where Barfi fails. Gauri Shinde did what Anurag Basu couldn't. Barfi was fantastic in parts but the basic premise for these films is to &quot;Keep it simple&quot; which Mr. Basu dint and Mrs. Gauri did. English Vinglish is a simple film with a big heart with an absolutely outstanding performance by <span id="remainingText876111051_771308462" style="display:none;"> SriDevi. During...more

I love you Siri Devi. In fact I'm not a cinema person but I had to arrange my time, make a plan to watch your come back after 14 years and each of my minute spent was worth it......more

Simplicity is a rare characteristic in Bollywood films. English Vinglish is a film that delivers a tasteful mix of excellent performance by the returning Bollywood beauty, easy flow to the story, spotless script and a good message to every family. Recommended watch.more

Gauri Shinde masterfully makes a heartwarming film about a woman who is looked down upon by her own family because she doesn't know English and her journey to earn respect. It's the small things in this movie that make it such a delight to watch. Each dialog, expression, costume, etc. has been paid such careful <span id="remainingText785199605_771308462" style="display:none;"> attention to. All characters have...more

This is a heartfelt journey of one woman's path to independence and self-discovery. Yet it is not a check flick. It is a film we all can relate to. The acting is superb and the cinematography makes you want to fall in love with New York all over again. Although the film is in very limited release, you should go out of <span id="remainingText918805570_771308462" style="display:none;"> your way to see it.more

i have not yet seen this epic movie, but it is beautiful..more

For a film wanting to make a point about self confidence, it is whispering it in a very shy manner, like the main character. Maybe to avoid rocking the established order. There are some nice touching moments and some smiles.more

Regardless who you are, English Vinglish is guaranteed to contain something that you can relate to on a higher level of thinking. An emotional roller coaster that is quite possibly one of the best feel good movies of 2012!more

brilliant movie! must seemore

A wonderful performance from Sridevi in regard to acceptance and equality. Being very difference from traditional Bollywood movies, it holds a charm and shows the heartfelt journey of a non-English speaker.more

This one just reiterates why you were a huge fan of this The most expressive eyes talk you through the whole movie and leave you wanting more. The movie without here would still have been a good one in my book but Sridevi just takes it to another level. Gauri Shinde has picked a small and simple concept and created a <span id="remainingText849255249_771308462" style="display:none;"> beautiful script around it. The...more

Sridevi's powerful performance and captivating screenplay makes English Vinglish a must watch!more

So sweet as a laddu.. !!!more

Saw this last night and loved it. My kind of movie. Fresh, funny, and I left the theatre feeling great!!more

English Vinglish comes as a breath of fresh air amidst all the junk and mediocre films Bollywood churns out every week.I think twice before spending money on a multiplex ticket for a Bollywood movie and I wasn't disappointed.more

Mediocre movie that doesn't really have anything new to say, but Sridevi is wonderful.more

In recent time, bollywood has started producing movies having local flavor with global appeal ..more

Not just about English but about understanding cultures. Quite a big issue these days. All above the movie was something sweet &amp; good to see the 80's queen back in action.more

Great movie. Perfect mix of culture. Awesome music. A must watch.more

Extremely naturalistic acting and free flowing and unforced comedy, unlike other masala movies from bollywood. One of the best comedies out there.more

Power packed Solo performance...more

A breath of fresh air for two+ hours. The story is unusual in Hindi cinema. And Sridevi is just brilliant. Plus the side-tales covered are truly remarkable and without the usual Bollywood stereotypes - a teenage daughter's rudeness, a patronizing husband who is otherwise well-meaning, a foreigner niece who is truly <span id="remainingText793094153_771308462" style="display:none;"> helpful, a French chef falling in...more

This film is a must watch for every Indian housewifemore

Deepinder'sPerspective: The movie has an excellent couple of morales: Equality of sexes in a wedlock, overcoming your shortcomings regardless of age or other societal pressures, strength of character etc. Now coming to the movie and its primary character Sridevi.

For someone who has been born and brought up on English medium schools, and I don&#x27;t say this proudly, but for whom English is his first language of thought, it is very hard to put self in Sridevi&#x27;s shoes. Someone, who doesn&#x27;t know English, but in all other ways is very competent. Someone, who is constantly the butt of family jokes and jibes, especially by the husband and the rapidly growing daughter. That the film...more

Superb! Fantastic! Definitely worth a Standing Ovation! This movie is a winner all the way. Right from the script to the characters, everything falls in place. Very difficult to find faults, in fact there is no need to find faults. This movie takes you on a journey of a typical Indian housewife who can hardly speak English. The treatment of the movie is such that you feel a connection with the movie. The best &#x27;part&#x27; of the...more

After long gap of 15 years Sridevi&#x27;s flick has released.The story of movie is so cute.Family,friends anyone can watch this movie. The movie is about a married woman who doesn&#x27;t know English language and has always been humiliated by her daughter,hubby and people around her.. Later she decides to learn it and teaches a lesson to all people who humiliated her because of not knowing English well. This flick makes you realize that...more

I went to watch this film knowing that Sridevi would shine. But I was completely bowled over by how simple and true to life this film is, not to mention Sridevi&#x27;s performance. There were so many scenes, where without saying a word, Sridevi has conveyed the correct emotion so wonderfully. Notice the caf&#xE9; scene, where she is struggling to order; or the scene in the rickshaw where her daughter is ashamed how she behaved at...more

For every other Sridevi fan, this film must have been that much awaited cinematic confrontation with their dream actress and the superstar of her times (or should I say megastar?). Let me admit that I was never a Sridevi fan in my life (even after watching all her fantastic performances in various characters), however, the temptation to see the actress come back in the celluloid after some 15 years was enough for me go for English...more

&#x22;If we don&#x27;t love ourselves we use to attract towards new things but as soon as we began to love ourselves we feel confident and old things look prettier again.&#x22; This is one dialogue from the movie&#x27;s lead protagonist which teaches how one can come back to his normal life; English Vinglish is a sweet Laddu with almonds of a logical script, cashew nuts of nice music, raisins of love and pistachios of Hope....more

This is my first review on IMDb and its just because of one reason. I stay away from my mother and after watching this movie, I called her and talked to her for an hour and am still thinking about her. The first scene will remind a lot of Indian kids about their mother, being the first person to wake up, not even bothering about reading the newspaper and feeding all the family members with a smile on her face. Awesome scene and it set the mood...more

English Vinglish is a feel-good movie that will leave you wanting for more. Sridevi is the shining star among a a cast full of strong performances. She plays an absolutely lovable hero in this movie, and her attention to the details of &#x22;Shashi&#x22; was mesmerizing. She was soft and delicate while also powerful and courageous. She exhibited a strong, free mind without ever abandoning her role as a traditional homemaker woman in a...more

English Vinglish is a beautiful journey that a middle class Indian housewife takes, to regain something she lost or probably never really got, ironically enough, in a foreign land with a foreign language as a tool.<br><br>The movie has a simple plan, and audience gets to know about it right at the beginning.

Sridevi makes remarkable comeback with English Vinglish. Rather with the plethora of her emotions on display while acting in this movie, one would hardly feel she was away from cinemas all these years. The director has managed to churn out a fabulous story from a pretty simple theme. Background scores complement the situations. It would be too generic to say it&#x27;s a comedy flick. No, it is a movie which portrays life which itself has...more

There are not that many movies that really have the viewer smiling all through till the end. This smile on my face was more so due to the situations the main character overcomes throughout the film. I had an instant connection with this movie because my mother came to the U.S. with weak English and so did many of my friends&#x27; mothers.<br><br>If you look at English Vinglish on a bigger scale, it&#x27;s nothing more than...more

Good things come in small packages and &#x22;English Vinglish&#x22; is the latest addition to such a package.Simple,sweet,predictable film which never tries to do more or different, much like its lovable protagonist.Sridevi is terrific in her comeback venture and gives a performance which would rank among her best along with Sadma.

Good things come in small packages, and &#x22;English vinglish&#x22; is the best example of that. In my opinion, one of the best ways to judge a movie is by how it makes you feel when you walk out of the theater.

I was eagerly waiting to see Sridevi back on silver screen. Its is her excellent move to come back with this movie &#x22;English Vinglish&#x22;. Hats off to her and the story line of this movie. Every other person in his/her life has passed through the phase which the main character (Sridevi) of the movie has passed. So its makes one, FEEL THE SOUL of this movie. Also this movie has good moral which teaches one to NEVER GIVE UP and...more

This movie was very much needed for this fast generation of changing India! Due to globalization and absence of a country-wide &#x27;regional&#x27; language, most of the businesses today demands efficient use of English - a global language. Naturally, respect for the language that helps earn money with comfort prompts ugly neglect of other regional languages. Schools encourage kids to learn English, keeping it as a mandate. It glorifies...more

I watched this movie as the reviews were very good....but man am extremely disappointed as there was no fun at all. Did not like it a bit !<br><br>The story is as thin as a thread; what I do not understand is how can anyone produce a movie with such bad script and screenplay. Very mediocre performances and cheap jokes. All the lead actors were like jokers. And it seemed that the lead actor in this movie was scratching an iron desk...more

The film is about respect and moral values which are getting decreased these days among people. It also deals with the most sensitive issue of what a child learns in his/her house. What children say and how they behave these days is what they learn from their elders. It is whole a vicious circle. Without going into psychology, I would say that English Vinglish is a brilliant Indian Cinema. The story revolves around a Housewife who is very kind...more

This movie was released in multiple languages. I saw this movie in the Tamil version. This movie is about a typical Indian woman who has trouble with English speaking and her New York expedition. The simple one line story is whether Sashi (Sridevi) succeeds her English learning mission? Coming to the lead role Sridevi has done it picture perfect in her role of a middle aged typical Indian women. She proves us that her acting skills are...more

Sreedevi was amazing in the movie. At this age, she looks extremely beautiful - I can&#x27;t think of any other woman as beautiful at her age. Also, she has done her part extremely well. Carefully subdued acting and an excellent screen presence/beauty.<br><br>The theme is a great one. It is universal, at least in an Indian context. The subject is so relevant and so common that it is a surprise that there are not very many movies...more

The movie traces the life and struggle of a simple Indian housewife, Sashi (well essayed by Sridevi), to earn respect and dignity which is being denied to her by her own family, only for the reason that she is not proficient in English. She is called upon by her sister for her niece&#x27;s wedding to New York and once there secretly enrolls herself for a four-week of English class. Constantly helping her is her second niece, Radha (lively...more

English Vinglish is a well made film about an Indian housewife&#x27;s self- pride and her regained confidence. Its director Gauri Shinde&#x27;s debut venture executed beautifully, which neither offends the people fond of using English, nor it forgets to feel proud of our own Indian languages lead by Hindi.<br><br>EV begins calmly with the charming Sridevi returning on the screen in her simplest avatar. She straight away wins...more

If creative intellectuals have their way, when the history of Indian Cinema is written, it will be written in two parts: Before Sridevi and After Sridevi. With due respect to Dilip Kumar, Kamal Hassan, and even Amitabh Bachchan, Sridevi stands as the sole female actor in a country whose native cinema has historically preferred its women to be little more than ornamental showpieces to equal and even generally outrank and outshine her male...more

really good thinks return us to respect every family member.<br><br>really i learn something to watch this movie.<br><br>also our Indian house wife is not a talking in good English but does not mean she is poor. <br><br>she is not try to learn but if she try done so much in compare of other. so always respect be proud of our self.<br><br>A belittled and insecure Indian housewife enrolls in an...more

Subtleness is less expected from Bollywood, so it was pleasantly surprising to watch the understated subordination of Sridevi&#x27;s character Shashi by her own husband and daughter. Even more subtle is the family&#x27;s treatment of the grandmother &#x96; in one scene, Shashi&#x27;s husband Satish casually tells his mother that she wasn&#x27;t going with them to America because she had no passport to travel. The...more

English Vinglish is a unique and a fresh movie directed brilliantly, without a dull moment, by Gauri Shinde. What a come back it has been for Sridevi after 14 years. She hasn&#x27;t lost the touch. She actually casts a spell on the viewers.<br><br>I must admit that I absolutely had no expectations from this movie. Usually most of the comebacks have never really sparked off. This has been the best comeback by any actor with such...more

Some movies are so real life like that you just cant help but get amazed by the creativity and deep thought process of the Writer / Director and in this movies case both the department are headed by the debut Gauri Shinde. She claims it&#x27;s her mother&#x27;s story whereas I felt as if she showed me my mother&#x27;s life story and I guess lot of people like me will definitely relate it to a lot of Indian Housewives whose stories...more

Very few comedy movies come with a sensible comedy and a flow which makes you enjoying the movie throughout. This is one of those. Thanks to the team for bring such a jewel. Sridevi has played a fantastic role in this one. The direction is superb too. Before watching the movie, I was thinking that may be they would make fun of the language (English) in order to create comedy however after watching I felt that the storyline has been written in...more

Many will know I have been following Bollywood films over the last few years with keen interest, with one of the prime reasons being, why not? We have dedicated halls and screens which are always showing the latest the industry has to offer, very often having same day premieres, and I cannot fathom having to close this option off for the lack of language ability. English subtitles is a boon, and my only option to understand what&#x27;s...more

I got to see this wonderful movie after a long time yesterday. May be after the whole world saw it. Thankfully this movie has no so called &#x22;item numbers&#x22; and that says a lot! I am not so well versed with Hindi and I always used to avoid watching Hindi movies for the simple reason, I never understood what was going on and again I never had the opportunity to learn my national language and always ran away from it. But this movie...more

This is a very decent movie that raises few social issues in its own light manner . Disrespect of parents by next generation , male dominant culture in an average Indian family is shown . Sridevi has done justice with the character of house wife who struggles to gain respect in her family . Talented cook , devoted and responsible mother who struggles on a foreign land . Whole film is very light yet strongly woven . As the story moves on viewer...more

English Vinglish, just like the Laddoos, it&#x27;s lead protagonist Shashi so craftily supplies throughout the movie, is as simple, sweet and tasty.<br><br>This is essentially a story of a simple housewife who craves respect, and instead, is mostly subjected to ridicule by her family for not speaking or understanding English.

First thing&#x27;s First. Allow me to convey my huge thanks to the makers of this movie.

This movie really surprised me; not bad at all.more

Totally enjoyed this moviemore

Shashi Godbole and Sridevi walks hand to hand in this movie. After watching the movie, you cannot imagine English Vinglish without Sridevi and Srdievi's comeback wouldn't have been better than this and she stretches herself to the best level she can. Her role is very strong and she enacts it in a brilliant manner. Worth a watch.more

nice movie...but not much entertainment ...more

Watched a delightful movie after long. Please don't go by what the critics say, as most of them here are western and know zilch about Indian family system. This is a beautiful movie of a women who gives it all to keep her husband, children and passion alive. A very sensible movie indeed. One of the Bollywood best in 2012.more

Loved the movie... Nice story... Good comedy and drama and a heart touching movie... Will recommend to everyone... Great for kids too, so watch with family..more

I wasnt' expecting much, but was deleighted by this whimsical film with subtle, thought provoking handling of several issues. Loved the cast of students - maybe because when I visited NYC I didn't find any so multi dimentional. My experience was more like hers in the cafe. Went in thinking I was going to see a haphazzard Indian film and walked out pondering many subjects; the power of English on the world, how we treat women and...more

such a beautiful film --- wow Sri Devi is really INCREDIBLE --- after all these years, she still got her unique charm & acting --- her expressions & acting is simply brilliant --- not only her looks are beautiful but also her acting --- she is so charming & adorable --- she literally lived in that character till the end --- and also everyone in the movie showed a great performance --- great screen play & direction --- though...more

A feel good movie. This one leave you with a smile on your face. Sridevi excels as Shashi, a middle class house-wife who is poor in English.more

After a long time, a heart warming and humane movie from Bollywood. No frills, no action, no item numbers, no hollywood stunts...plain, simple, about everyday people. Such a treat to see Sridevi on screen, playing her age and reminding us what good actresses are made of ...not brands, not make-up, not accents but acting that can invoke emotions. As much as I would have loved her hooking up with the French guy, it sounds almost unrealistic for...more

English Vinglish (Tamil) is Absolutely beautiful with great depth! Loved every minute of it! a must watch family entertainer.more

It's a conventional film, but the character of Shashi--an Indian-American mother whose shortcoming it is that her English is poor--really gathers our sympathy and makes us consider how important our moms are in our lives and how easy they seem to make it look at running an entire household without ever getting much credit for it.more

Sridevi's still great...really liked it!more

Comeback film of Sridevi, an undoubtedly a great actress. Here she plays a role of an housewife who does not know English and is sought of let down in the society. A sweet film .more

The best Bollywood movie I've seen this year!more

Sridevi is still one of the best actresses of Bollywood.more

Love a good Bollywood film and this is a good one. The journey of Shashi from insecurity to confidence & self respect. It is Sridevi's comeback movie but I'd never heard of her before this film. Count me in as a fan now. Touching, poignant, humorous, it sucked me in! Recommend to all.more

Good time pass movie with Botoxed Sridevi leading the way. It is fun at parts and typical hind movie senti in large bouts....more

I have no words I expected it to be good but never this beautiful...I bow my head to all the people involved with this movie...My only thought after watching this movie "Why must you end so soon"more

Very quietly blindsides you:)more

The name 'Shashi' remembered me person I loved once.more

Dramatic to the max...and pretty boring...more

Moti Chur ladoo ! - Awesome !more

When you find your true WORTH in this world...The RESPECT you earn,is something that you totally deserve Beautiful movie,bolstered by solid performance of Sridevi & creative yet so simple storylinemore

A beautifully crafted feel good movie about personal upliftment and family values.more

the little boy was too adorable for words (and so was 'radha') in truth though, wasn't the first three quarters of the movie kinda dull and slow-paced?more

Sridevi is undeniably the most amazing actress to pull off such a simple character...more

A movie that's good family entertainer and one that's hard to find. The protagonist is a simple housewife who is indirectly bullied by her own father and daughter for her poor English knowledge gets a chance to visit New York for her niece's wedding. There she decides to learn English without letting anyone aware of her enrollment into English speaking course. At the end of movie, it would leave a smile on your face.more

I am Sridevi Die-hard...:) So, loved each minute of the movie. It is hard to understand this movie if you havent lived on the other side. By other side, I mean in a country which is full of complexes. Some of the incidents are so very true and relatable. You have to live it to get it. The entertainment value is immense, how can Hawa Hawaiii go wrong...OOOOOUU...:)) All songs are good.more

Good comeback movie for Sridevi... I specially liked the "french touch"more

A very nice movie that tells the story about a mother that has major issues with English and speaking reading understanding etc. She gets no support or encouragement from her husband or daughter she just gets teased and made fun of that she does not try and learn and that shes an embarrassment to the family. The movie struck some home truths for me and felt like something that my mum went through not for English but other things. The Women gets...more

As most Hindi movies go, starts off great and then progresses to an interesting middle, raising many complex dilemmas all women can relate to. Yet, at the end of it all, the film resorts to a convenient end with a moral that's hard to digest without many spoonfuls of laddoos.more

Sridevi just made me realize why the entire nation was mesmerized with her in the 80s-90s. Now she is back with a bang after a 15 year hiatus delivering another masterful performance carrying the entire movie on her shoulders with such grace, charisma and a terrific sense of humor. What the movie suffers from bloated runtime, occasional indulgences to mainstream comedy, some stereotypical characters and an undying resolute to repeatedly show the...more

It is always so comforting to watch sweet Bollywood movies like this one, during the winter vacation days over baked caramel apple croissants. I fully enjoyed the journey Sridevi takes you on this tender comedy romantic movie. Even though it also revolves around a wedding, this story is fresh and different from the typical Bollywood predictable maintream movies. I also enjoyed the photography in both India and New York, portraying both places...more

'English is a phunny language', Amitabh Bachchan told us in Namak Halal. English Vinglish starts with a title card that says, "100 years of Indian cinema. 70 years of Amitabh Bachchan." The film's producer, R Balki, has been a self-confessed Bachchan fan, who gave the veteran two of his most challenging roles in the post-Mohabbatein phase - a proud, arrogant, unmarried chef in...more

Roshni Devi
What’s Good: The nuanced screenplay and cinematography; the effortless direction; the touching performances; the music. What’s Bad: Some characterizations; tries a bit hard to get emotional; the slow pace. Watch or Not?: This light-hearted movie is a lovable watch for Sridevi, the direction and the music, though the forced emotional quotient might get to you. Towards the climax of English Vinglish...more

Raja Sen
In India [ Images ], our post-Colonial hangover includes a peculiar English-language elitism, where those even halfway in control of the language thumb their nose at those unable to speak it. Where folk routinely, and with unforgivable curtness, cut folk off mid-sentence to snappily correct pronunciation. Which is why a scene in Gauri Shinde's new film -- where a simple Maharashtrian woman is...more

Shubhra Gupta
Shashi Godbole is a good wife, and a good mother. She packs tiffin for her school-going kids, and hands her husband his briefcase every morning. She is also a woman who is not too conversant with English and speaks it haltingly. Which makes her not good enough for her corporate-type spouse, and brattish teenage daughter: they treat her with the sort of off-hand affection edged with disparagement that most...more
