Tired of the commonplace and extremely predictable love stories (hero loves girl, some fights, girl loves back, trouble with family, some fights, family loves guy, happy ending) I decided to try a movie that is out of the box, with a good protagonist and this was my choice. A good choice. If you want to have some comedy that is not utter nonsense, and a little sentiment that you could relate with if you are a housewife of the typical 90s this movie is for you. The refined movie style made me laugh, feel sad and clap at the end. “May I?”
English Vinglish, led by Sri Devi alone, doesn't go beyond the reality. She doesn't lean erudite English and make eloquent speeches like Swami Vivekananda. However she managed to make the audience break into applause at the end of the movie with two simple words, which in the everyday usage would not be clap-worthy.
