English Vinglish Rumours

So little has escaped by the R Bali/Gauri Shinde camp on the return of Sridevi that the net has exploded with rumours and conjecture. Some of the buzz that we've heard so far include; the movie has some semblance to Mind Your Language, takes a note from the television sitcom Zamban Sambhalke (which has been refuted by Balki thank God), Amitabh Bachchan is the male lead... Well, some, none or all of this may or may not be true. But of course, speculation shall be rife until the film releases... whenever it does.

But here's more fuel to the gossip fires:

- English Vinglish also throws light on some dysfunctional characters who take up the 'Learn English in 2 weeks' course along with Sridevi. The movie is laced with fun and hilarious situations, topped with Sridevi's comic timing dialogues.

- The expected release date of English Vinglish is Friday 9th of December 2011.

- Musician Amit Trivedi (Aamir, Dev D, Wake Up Sid, Udaan, Aisha, No One Killed Jessica, I Am, Chillar Party) has been confirmed as the composer for R Balki/ Gauri Shinde's English Vinglish which stars Sridevi. (Report from Bombay Times, but found online here.)

  1. Ah, brilliant - a 2011 release date. I suppose it might be too much to ask for a UK Cinema showing? Even in London....

    I suppose I should just get used to the fact that it could a long time until I see this movie outside of fuzzy Youtube highlights...

    Thanks for the info! :)
