english vinglish review

 After taking a break of 15 years, Sridevi has returned with the role of a housewife in ‘English Vinglish’ and after watching the film, I have just one word for the actress - FLAWLESS! 

Sridevi's acting in the movie is just amazing. She is in the role of a maharashtraian housewife "Shahi" who is passionate about making ladoos and sell them as well. She is very low on confidence as she can not speak  English, due to which she has to face hell as her husband has no respect for her and her 7th grade school going daughter is ashamed to with introduce her as her mother.

A turning point comes to her life when she goes to New York to help her sister with her niece’s wedding. And grabs an opportunity to learn speaking English in mere 4 weeks and gain her duly deserved respect. In no time Shashi became the most passionate student in the class. She watches English movies during night religiously reads paper as her self imposed homework, all to improve her English reading, writing and speaking skills.during this time periods she finds this very handsome Frenchman attracted to her despite of her simple personality. She achieves her goal as she delivered a speech on the wedding day of her niece.

Many middle age women can relate to the character, as they face the same problem as she did with there kids and husband as they consider them as shame just because they can not speak English and are very low on self steam.

Movie teaches a beautiful lesson that you can do anything if you show required amount of dedication for it.

But the movie did not hold my interest as an audience, after my college when I go for a movie, I expect it to be refreshing. I personally prefer either comedy or a very "strong" movie.
This movie do have some comedy scenes but it can not be called as refreshing. Movie became very predictable specially after the interval.

I would rate this movie as 2/5 stars that is just for good concept and Sridevi.
