English Vinglish(2012)

What a comeback by Sridevi in 'English Vinglish'. It was a treat to watch her act - such beautiful display of emotions - hesitation, fear, control, resignation . She was wise in choosing the script and did full justice with it. Special mention goes to a small and simple scene between her and AB (guest appearance) - they took a very very simple scene to an altogether different level. No wonder they are the real superstars. Good direction and choice of character artists too. Seems that the movie is a tribute to the shedding of 'silent tears' by women worldwide in order to bind their family together and/or carve an identity for themselves. As Shashi (Sri) rightly sums it all by saying that 'she is not looking for love but respect'.
