This is from the 15th semester of the UH Bollywood Film Series.
Shashi (played charmingly by 1980s and ’90s Bollywood megastar Sridevi) is a housewife who runs a home business selling sweets. When she makes a long visit to America for a family wedding, Shashi’s struggles with English lead to traumatic experiences and insecurities. Her resolve tested, she courageously decides to take a conversational English class without her family realizing it. Her amusing and kind fellow students represent the global diversity of America, humanizing the immigrant experience along the way.
This is the first movie in the 15th UH Bollywood film series, running on Monday afternoons this fall. For a copy of the full semester film series schedule, please see below.
