While I have not seen either movies, I wonder if EnglishVinglish should have been our Oscar pick instead of Barfi. Barfi maybe a really heartwarming good movie, but it still is a romance that borrows inspiration from many. EnglishVinglish has a theme that will appeal to more than just desis. Any ESL immigrant will probably connect with the struggles of fitting in when you don't even speak the language. Any ESL immigrant will identify with the rude reactions, dismissal and scorn faced simply because one cannot speak English well.

When it comes to inability to speak local language, USA is one of the most unaccommodating, unfriendly country in the world. I think EnglishVinglish even if a slightly lesser film, has a greater ability to strike a chord. It might appeal more to the Academy.

The biggest drawback of the American society is that most Americans grow up confined in their private oases. American kids are, by far, the most sheltered children that I have come across. An average American finds it hard to relate to other cultures. Anyway, there's more to all of that.

As far as E V is concerned - yes, it should be sent to the Oscars. Lovely movie!
