Let's Meetup and see ENGLISH VINGLISH

Director: Gauri Shinde
Starring: Sridevi, Adil Hussain, Mehdi Nebbou, Priya Anand

The legendary Sridevi makes her long-awaited comeback in a touching drama about a woman liberated by education.

Shashi (Sridevi) is a housewife and mother who lives in New York with her family. Shamed and restricted by her inability to speak English, she's teased by her children and patronised by her husband. Circumstances contrive to help Shashi overcome her insecurity and enrol in an English language class, where she's puzzled by the language's many inconsistencies. The light-hearted 'English Vinglish' follows her journey to becoming confident and self-assured in the bustling Big Apple. The film marks the directorial debut of writer/director Gauri Shinde, wife of filmmaker R. Balki, who was inspired by the experiences of her mother. She also succeeded in coaxing one of India's greatest actresses, Sridevi, back to the screen after a 14 year absence. Making her Bollywood debut in a supporting role is Priya Anand, who's best known for her work in Tamil and Telugu cinema.

Screenwriter: Gauri Shinde

Distributor: Eros

You should see it because: It's moving and funny - and the return of Sridevi is a major cinematic event.

See it if you liked: Judaai (1997), Cheeni Kum (2007), Paa (2009)

    Did you 2 see the film in the end? I didn't hear anything so I presumed it wasn't on. But if you guys want to see it another time then that would be cool....

      Yes, I would have changed it if I had been able. I was on set all day with no access to the internet. Someone let me borrow their phone so that I could ask the below question. I was hoping that we would wrap early enough so that I could join you, but they kept us until 7.30

      Meaning I didn't get home and online until past 8pm. Plus, there was no answer to my question about where the meetup point was to be, so I wasn't sure if the event was even happening.

    This sounds like a very uplifting film. Have to say I'm not familiar with Sridevi I don't think... Hope to be able to join you guys...
