    WARNING: I am not a movie buff...Also, I really lack the knowledge needed to critically review a movie...Am just trying to put in words what I felt after watching 'English Vinglish'...So, proceed (read this review) at your own risk...

    PREFACE: Though I read some reviews on this movie & mostly all reviewers gave it a positive feedback...Still, I was not that keen to watch this movie...Last Sunday, we (Me+My Husband) suddenly planned to watch this movie (as we had a free coupon, which we could use in watching any movie in a particular multiplex in Coventry, UK)...So, ... » read more

    English is a very ‘Feel Good’ language..

    English Vinglish rating: 7 out of 10

    By Divya Solgama(04 Oct 2012)

    Nobel Prize Winner Rosalyn S. Yalow was once quoted saying, ‘The excitement of learning separates youth from old age. As long as you’re learning, you’re not old’. Well, that explains why Sridevi looked so young and charming in the promos of comeback film ‘English Vinglish’. The yesteryear diva of Hindi Cinema returns to the silver screen after a 15-year hibernation in a completely new brand of Hindi Cinema. Our last memories of her are associated with either Multistarrer films or Masala Entertainers. No wonder it initially felt a little strange to see her in this alien ... » read more

    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 ... » read more

    Brilliant Comeback Movie for Sridevi.

    English Vinglish rating: 9 out of 10

    By Chetan Thakkar (30 Oct 2012)

    It was with muted expectations that we went to watch English Vinglish. However, the screenplay and the acting by Sridevi as well as the support cast blew us all away. Brilliant work by all the co-actors and Sridevi was just par-excellence in the movie. Must watch for persons who haven't watched it yet and look forward to an emotional masterpiece. » read more


    Bravo Bollywood to give smthin REALLY different!

    English Vinglish rating: 10 out of 10

    By ROHAN KARMALI(07 Nov 2012)

    After such a long time,
    I got to watch something worthwhile in bollywood.
    First and foremost.. My greatest wishes and congratulations to the marvellous director Gauri Shinde. I admit.. Flawless direction!
    Unlike other bollywood boring motion pictures, here, there's not a single "extra" scene in the movie to distract from story. And I appreciate it very much!

    And Ofcourse cant forget to mention..
    The Hero of the movie.. SRIDEVI.

    A personal opinion: I feel Sridevi is one of those few multi-talented actresses which have not been properly ... » read more

    By Dipen Guha(10 Oct 2012)

    Do the people whose first vernacular is English, ever find faults with erroneous English spoken by the people whose mother tongue is not English ? Of course, not so much as of the English-speaking so called elites residing in a country that has gained political freedom for over 65 years, yet has successfully cherished colonial hang-over. Problems are not with the rustic folks, but with the urban society that holds the fallacious phrase " COMMUNICATION SKILL" as the " sceptre" to wage over the society, as well as the" crown" suggesting sophistication. When this conviction ... » read more

    English Vinglish rating: 8 out of 10

    By Aditya Prasad(25 Nov 2012)

    A perfect protagonist and superb actors in the supporting roles.

    Many of us would be able to relate to the story of 'English Vinglish' as at some point in time in our lives (or for some, even today)we would have teased our parents/ grand parents for their lesser knowledge of this language called 'English'! Even when Hindi is our national language Indians take pride in being able to communicate in English and looking down on those who cannot really comprehend English well (even if they might be smarter and sharper than you!). This is a story of a typical housewife ... » read more

Film: English Vinglish; Cast: Sridevi, Adil Hussain, Mehdi Nebbou, and Sujata Kumar;

Director: Gauri Shinde; Rating: **** 1/2

There are no villains in English Vinglish. Only imperfect human beings like you and I, who make that common error of taking loved ones for granted.

Admit it. At some point in our lives we have all felt that if we don't speak good English, we are not destined to be successful human beings. Imagine a housewife - beautiful, efficient, charming, supportive - and imagine if she looks like, well, Sridevi and still feels she is being taken for granted just because she can't speak» Read full review
