About this movie

Money, fame and a knowledge of English. In India, these 3 factors play a huge role in how society judges an individual. English Vinglish is the story of a woman who does not know English and is made to feel insecure by her family and society at large. The film is a light -hearted yet touching and transformational journey of Shashi. Circumstances make her determined to overcome this insecurity, master the language, teach the world a lesson on the way to becoming a self assured and confident woman. The film is shot mostly in New York and captures the inherent struggle of many people all over the world with the English Language. Hilarious, touching, sensitive, this film marks the come back of India's biggest female star...Sridevi.

The director did a great job at making you feel a part of the group trying to learn English. This movie really teaches you a great deal about the importance of respect. It will make you happy at times and sad the next, but most of all it will at least make you empathize with others struggles especially as we realize each others differences. I loved all the characters in the movie and they all play their parts really well, but Sridevi steals the screen and her talent for acting really shows through. The plot is excellent as she decides to learn English and goes about reaching that goal. There will be tears of sadness, but also tears of joy. Bravo and a great movie to watch. Highly recommended.
