English Vinglish

What is it that you expect in a movie ?.., whatever it is, "English Vinglish" just delivers that. A feel good movie is a term, in some sense, belittling the sense of satisfaction that a viewer takes back home after watching the movie. There are very few negatives, in fact none  that I can point out. Even emotional scenes are given matured treatment and fortunately, you are saved of the scenes were the protagonist open up the flood gates.

If  an actress does have to get back to the dashing world of Bollywood after a long time, this is a dream like entry anyone would want and I am sure many would envy the beauty queen of 90s for having made that mind blowing re-entry. Sreedevi  appears on the screen and you just sit frozen. Believe me, she is much more beautiful than how she looked years back. Her serene presence along with some subtle mannerisms just hold our senses and you start empathizing her character. You feel hurt when she is insulted, you feel embarrassed when she struggles with her language. I doubt if Sreedevi has acted better ever before. Even her eyelashes seemed to perform . She has been given all the screen space and rightfully so. Others have performed equally well, especially the kid who took up the role of her son.

Hats off to the  director for having made a wonderful movie of such a simple plot. She connected all dots knitting a master piece which treads through various social realms, family fabric and relationships. There is a scene where Sreedevi talks to her classmate, a french chef, in hindi and he reciprocates in french. But still both seem to understand each other and so do we. Its a wonderful feeling that I am fortunate to be a part of some fantastic films being made, at least in the form of  audience. Don't miss "English Vinglish" for anything, else you are indeed missing out something special, You would surely take "Shashee" home along with you .
