English Vinglish directed by Gauri Shinde is an outstanding movie.
English Vinglish also marks the comeback of Sridevi,who plays the role of Shashi with bravura! Story: A belittled and insecure Indian housewife,Shashi (Sridevi) enrolls in an English language class.
The movie's only drawback is the slow pacing.But yet,first-time director Gauri Shinde does an excellent job in making this movie a delightful one.
The music is soothing.
The cinematography is top-notch.
The dialogs are well-worded The screenplay is water-tight.
Performances: Sridevi rocks as Shashi!I feel that her performance must earn an National Award.If not at least a Film-fare Award.Kudos to her! Amitabh Bachchan,although in a cameo steals the show.The whole theater went berserk when Amitabh Bachchan makes his appearance.His comic timing is superb!He truly rocks! Adil Hussain is efficient.Navika Kotia and Shivansh Kotia as the children,act well.
Cory Hibbs as David Fischer,Rajeev Ravindranathan as P.Ramamurthy,Ruth Aguilar as Eva,Damian Thompson as Udumbke and Sumeet Vyas as Salman Khan play their parts very well.Mehdi Nebbou as Laurent is good.
All in all,English Vinglish is a must-watch for everyone.I am giving it a nine out of ten.Strongly Recommended!If you miss it,its your loss!
