Critic Reviews for English Vinglish
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.
Audience Reviews for English Vinglish
This was the best movie I saw last year, and I did not expect to like it. It is funny, contemporary, and beautifully written and acted. Most of the action takes place in New York City and New Jersey, so despite its characterization as a foreign film it seems very American. The story is surprising, not trite, and makes you want to cheer for the main character for all the right reasons. Really good movie. Fun.
Excellent Bollywood to Hollywood film that bridges cultural divides through the power of friendship, food and families.
A routine story, but well executed and with a number of fun character performances in the supporting roles, including a delightful cameo by Amitabh Bachchan in the Hindi version. (I expect Ajith Kumar's cameo is good in the Tamil version as well.) Even the English language actors are good; not always the case in Bollywood movies. There aren't any real surprises but the movie is brisk and charming and effectively affecting. I even teared up a bit toward the end.
