The most comprehensive fan blog dedicated to India's most beautiful and greatest actress of all-time, Sridevi. Sridevi aka Sreedevi, ruled Indian cinema (with awesome performances in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi films) for nearly two decades before she abdicated to focus on her family. With a triumphant return with English Vinglish, Sridevi proves she'll forever be Queen Bee of Bollywood!

She's smarter by the syllable
Another thumbs up review for English Vinglish by Young Post. 4 out of 5 stars.
Published in Hong Kong.
A glowing snippet in Galaxy magazine, from Macau below.
From Galaxy magazine, "A dramedy set in New York and Mumbai, English Vinglish premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last September to near-universal critical acclaim. With the exquisite Indian movie star Sridevi leading the international ensemble cast, the film looks at the struggles of Shashi Godbole, a housewife grappling with the English language. Slighted by her educated husband and ridiculed by her teenage daughter, Shashi enrolls in an English-language course in an attempt to gain some respect. She encounters a motley crew of fellow students trying to cope as immigrants in New York, bringing plenty of moments of humor as well as pathos.
