  • A capable supporting cast and a fun cameo from a male megastar add to the appeal of this slight, enjoyable but ultimately predictable journey.

  • The image of the newly confident Shashi striding down a Manhattan street, a takeout coffee in hand and a trench coat belted over her sari, will make you smile days after you leave the theater.

  • A winsome if utterly conventional ugly-duckling story about a sympathetic character's much deserved progress toward a richer self.

  • An undemanding picture that goes down as well as the heroine's tasty ladoos.

  • English Vinglish, Gauri Shinde's first feature is a likeable film, which gives us a silky- smooth first half, a slowed-down second, broad-brushstroke-y characters, and an actress who makes it all work.
