English Vinglish(Tamil) Movie Review by a COMMON MAN:
It is Sridevi's come back movie after 15 years in Hindi Cinema and after 25 years in Tamil Cinema..What a Come Back.. It is the best come back by any individual in any industry in our World
Before going to the review, I should answer the 2 Questions which most of you will be looking for?
1. THALA THALA - how are his scenes? How much minutes does he comes in the movie?
2. Is it Dubbed Movie or Bilingual movie like "Naan Ee"?
In Bollywood, people were expecting this movie a lot because of Sridevi's comeback, but in Tamil nadu, there is not much promotion or much expectation for this movie. But, because of AJITH , it has created some expectation among AJITH Fans..
Ajith comes in the movie for 4 -5 minutes and there were huge applause for each and every dialogue he speaks. In those 4 minutes, he had done a role of friend, philosopher, comedian and a gentleman.
There is a scene in which Visa officer questions the purpose of his visit to New York and he replies "I want to spend some dollars to help the American economy recover". Just imagine the CLAPS & WHISTLES for this dialogue. I was able to hear the dialogue only with help of huge concentration :-) I am 100% sure that AJITH Fans will really LOVE his scenes and even other actor fans will like his scenes and may expect more scenes of him..
This movie had been advertised as a Bilingual movie (Tamil & Hindi). Naan Ee too was a Bilingual movie (Tamil & Telugu). It was not dubbed in Tamil. It was almost like our tamil movie as we knew most of the actors and scenes were taken by making the actors speak in Tamil. But, in this movie, disappointingly, there is no lip synch even for Sridevi and it doesn't look like it was taken in Tamil. Except Sridevi, Thala and Priya Anand (180), none of them look like Tamilians and hence we can hardly take it as a Tamil Movie. This is a huge negative factor for this movie. Having said that, second half of the movie will have almost 80% ENGLISH speaking scenes and it doesn't look like Bollywood movie itself.
Priya Anand is a Beautiful Actress and she had really done her role well in the movie. She doesn't have much scope to perform in the movie, but in the scenes where she has conversation with Sridevi are really good.
Let us see the Story of this film. It is a story of Home maker who doesn't know English properly and getting criticized by her own daughter & husband for it. She will be forced to visit New York for her Sister daughter's marriage and there she joins English Speaking Course. You can judge each and every scene from here including the Climax, isnt it?
Story is almost similar to Maddy's "Nala Damayanthi" which is written and produced by our Kamal Haasan which is about sufferings of our Maddy in Australia without knowing the Language.
Songs may sound great in Hindi, but not so in Tamil.
Movie runs for only 2 hours and 15 minutes but it may look Lengthy because of slow screenplay and expected scenes.
It is a really a FEEL GOOD MOVIE which can be watched along with ur siblings, parents, etc and it will be definitely welcomed in Bollywood. But, in Tamil Nadu, only AJITH FANS and Female Audiences can decide the fate of this movie.
I would rate 2.75 / 5 for this movie as it is a DUBBED MOVIE according to me and hence, we can't connect much with the emotions.If the climax scene where Sridevi speaks English bring drops of Tears in ur eyes, there lies the success of this movie. For Hindi version, I would rate 3.25 / 5 for this movie.
