A.K.A One of the sweetest feel-good movies I've seen in ages. I fell in absolute love with this movie. So, so, so sooo beautiful, it left me with tears actually rolling down my face, and then there were scenes wherein I was grinning like a fool. I EVEN CLAPPED A BIT in the ending and felt so stupid lol but this movie really takes you, like a freaking space shuttle. What BEAUTY!
Every scene was a class act. I will be honest and say that I have not watched a lot of Sridevi movies in my childhood, ergo although I know she was very very renowned actress, I never got to experience it. But she was mindblowing in EV, she was SO WONDERFUL! She's an absolute natural... even in scenes when we're meant to understand that she's hungry, or thirsty, like in the airplane, or when she sees the guy eating the baguette in the park, she shows it SO well. I don't even know how to explain lol, just loved loved loved her, and I agree with Pullo... Vidya Rani Kareena all of them come later.. I truly hope she bags the awards this year. What a frikkin TREAT she was!
I loved everythingg about this movie! Everyone was amazing, I really liked her English class group, the Salman Khan guy made me ROFL haahahah xD Esp. what he says about the word "entrepreneur" I forgot what it was but it was hilarious ahaha. I felt a bit bad for Laurent but that was a very nicely portrayed love angle
Shashi's sister and Radha they all did really great jobs as well, as with Shashi's husband. Her kids were good too, her son is SHOO CUUUTE xD ahaha omg esp. at the scene when he apologizes to Shashi for making her drop the ladoos.. goodness I had tears.
AND OMG in that Dhak Dhuk song when it kills Shashi to have to shift her son's head from her lap to the pillow cuz its her time to leave, and how Shashi looks up at her mom-in-law and she has like that one tear on her face and she looks absolutely torn.. oh my goodness my tears were proper rolling down at that bit.
What a beautiful movie <3
and I LOVED the message of the movie. About how we can find it within ourselves to feel good about ourselves or become better, overcome our shortcomings or insecurities and most importantly loving ourselves. and what a KICKASS way of presenting that message, at that last speech.. oh dear me. The lack of melodrama was great as well, was tired of K.Jo's style of overcoming everyone personal problems with a dramatic tear-filled scene and a big family hug in the end. This movie was very much more similar to I guess how normal life is really like... feeling happy, feeling disappointed, annoyed... Gauri Shinde had a wonderful, wonderful story to tell, and she picked the BEST canvas to work with.
