Story


Money, fame and the knowledge of English: in India, these three factors play a huge role in how society judges an individual.

"English Vinglish" is the story of a woman who does not know English and is made to feel insecure by her family and society at large. The film is a light-hearted yet touching and transformational journey of Shashi. Circumstances make her determined to overcome this insecurity, master the language, and teach the world a lesson on the way to becoming a self assured and confident woman.

The film is shot mostly in New York and captures the inherent struggle of many people all over the world with the English language. Hilarious, touching, sensitive, this film marks the comeback of India's biggest female star, Sridevi.
