English Vinglish, Sridevi’s comeback movie, hits the screens today. Sridevi plays a Marathi housewife Shashi Godbole who handles the challenge of learning English to please her husband. The film brings out the complexities of learning a new language at a ripe age. The first promos of ‘English Vinglish’ didn’t create much buzz but slowly, the film started influencing the audiences.
Sridevi had ruled Hindi cinema during late 1980s and early 90s. With this, Sridevi will also barge into the world of superstar Bollywood heroes who have kept their stardom intact despite being over 45.
Meanwhile, Barfi !, India’s official entry for the Oscars, continues to charm audiences all over. Barfi ! has garnered Re. 100 Crore in just 10 days of release and with this, Ranbir Kapoor has entered the much-hyped 100 crore-club. It is difficult to compare this collection with those of older movies obviously due to a change in circumstances and inflation levels but the 100 crore-club is unofficially believed to be the new version of the Silver Jubilee.
