It's been nearly 12 years since Sridevi retired from the big screen. But one look at her upcoming film English Vinglish, and you'll never think she ever took a break.
Having started off as a child star with 211 films to her credit, it's only natural the audience feel that way.
Sridevi shows us that she still has it in her and some more with a charming act in Gauri Shinde's directorial debut. It's a story we all know - a middle aged Indian woman heads to the land of dreams and is struck by the first thing - language.
How Sridevi works her way around this hurdle, makes herself at home and gets people to acknowledge in her lovely collection of saris and traditional demeanour makes the crux of the story.
The veteran star brings a lovely knowing touch to her role. She ensures that such a portrayal remains sensitive and doesn't slip into the zone of potential ridicule and spoof.
