Critic Reviews for English Vinglish

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (5)

English Vinglish, Gauri Shinde's first feature is a likeable film, which gives us a silky- smooth first half, a slowed-down second, broad-brushstroke-y characters, and an actress who makes it all work.

March 22, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

A capable supporting cast and a fun cameo from a male megastar add to the appeal of this slight, enjoyable but ultimately predictable journey.

October 23, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The image of the newly confident Shashi striding down a Manhattan street, a takeout coffee in hand and a trench coat belted over her sari, will make you smile days after you leave the theater.

July 15, 2015 | Full Review…

A winsome if utterly conventional ugly-duckling story about a sympathetic character's much deserved progress toward a richer self.

October 5, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

An undemanding picture that goes down as well as the heroine's tasty ladoos.
