The film captures a modern day struggle experienced all too often by the un-American elite trying to make it in America: the language barrier. Sridevi's character, Shashi, is made to feel insecure by society (aka family, friends) in her inability to speak proper English. As she takes strides to fix this--by enrolling in an ESL class--Shinde shows audiences one woman's transformation from orally inept to orally mastering a language, and a culture, that was once foreign to her.  (description via the Playlist)
