Shashi is a dedicated mother and wife of a busy executive in the western Indian city of Pune. However, her teenaged daughter treats her with contempt, while the casually masked cruelty of her husband’s words cut her to the core.
Directed and written by Gauri Shinde, the film depicts the transformation of Shashi, meek, put-upon Indian housewife who speaks only Hindi, into a confident citizen of the world, over the length of a four-week crash course in English.
Dir: Gauri Shinde, 2012, PG 2h 14min.
