English Vinglish - Review
This Saturday me and S had been English Vinglish. Sridevi's acting superb. The casting excellent. Direction and editing is worth giving 5 stars. Its a story of a housewife fighting for her identity.
I saw many a women shed tears during the movie. Frankly even I did :). Its a very simple story or almost no story. But the concept and presentation excellent.
Any wife can identify herself with Sridevi in this movie. Especially those times when you call up your husband to tell him something exciting and he cuts your call. S if u are reading this, you have done that to me so many times.After 8 years of marriage and 2 children now you at least ask me if its urgent. I am glad for this change in you. I had shed few tears here .
Another moving scene was when , she has to leave her kids and go to New york and the kids and husband dont even understand what she is going through. No I dint shed tears here.
All together its a lovely movie. Worth a watch. The acting by everyone is restrained and controlled which in itself is a welcome change .And the movie gets over just when it has to. Just when you start thinking what else is left it gets over. Which is the most important point his movie.
Sridevi's body wow! sari's worth stealing , only sore point is I wish somebody had dubbed for her. Her voice and accent is so bad.
