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.
