English Vinglish

Sridevi, after all these years - refreshing.

I would say the film is watchable. Could have been a lot better. Probably I didn't like it as much because I was expecting something different from the film. Some parts are actually quite good, but that gets evened out by some rather over the top sequences. The cafe sequence was ridiculous.

Was extremely disappointed by the maker's bastardised version of Mind Your Language.

Everyone is comparing it with 'Mind Your Language'... but that part of the movie is just a sort of filler. I felt the characters were less caricature-like than MYL.
I felt the movie was fine by Indian standards... relatively less melodramatic than what the plot could have become in the hands of a lot of Indian directors.
I agree that the cafe scene was OTT... :) But, I loved Sridevi in the movie... you can keep Rekha! ;)
