Shashi, a middle class housewife, gets no respect from her pampered children and busy husband. They mock her poor English, which the kids learn in school and her husband uses professionally. Travelling to New York City for an extended stay to help with her niece's wedding, Shashi enrolls in a 4-week ESL class and blooms, learning the language and making new friends outside the tight orbit of home. One of them, an attractive French chef, has more than friendship in mind. In the mid-'80s, Sridevi was the No. 1 Indian actress, adored for her bubbly personality and sensuous dancing. Retired from the screen for 15 years, she has returned in a well written, woman-centered film, which shrewdly marks the tension between Indian and Western cultures. Sridevi's confident comeback as a modest woman whose gumption surprises even herself, makes for one of the best Bollywood films of the year.
