Artistically Crafted. Sridevi's Spectacular Come Back,
The movie is about the women not from English background better say not well versed in English, but lives with the people of English background--- classified as 'Modern'. The movie prescribes the way society lives. And how the women is categorized if she not proficient in English.
How this women learns English, the situations she overcomes, beats the challenges is the excitation plot and the movie is designed alike 'grope we are up taking the travel along'.
I share that Director handled the script very carefully, efficiently, and we can feel the Director's personal touch for this.
The movie has humor, commitment, and a lesson one should learn before provoking other's weakness, the art of the person's earning self-respect we call.
Sridevi is the forever topnotch actress, a tagged 'natural' actress, and she proves it once again. She is indeed the backbone of the film.
Hats-off to Sridevi(take a bow madam--you deserve an award for this film, the Director of the film, Gauri Shinde too, besides this is her first movie and she is going to set the levels on her future projects), cast n crew for giving such a good movie.
A must go film with your FnF :-)
