RIVER CITY BANGKOK FILM CLUB OPENING FILM OF 2019!

‘ENGLISH VINGLISH’, INDIA (With English sub-titles)

Directed by Gauri Shinde

SATURDAY 16 MARCH, 4:00 PM
VENUE: RCB FORUM (2nd Floor, River City Bangkok)

Our Opening Film of 2019, is a memorable movie from India, which combines linguistics, domesticity, multi-culturalism, with delightful ease. It stars one of the greatest actresses of the country, Sridevi, known for her superior dancing and dramatic skills, who acted in more than 200 films, but died tragically in a drowning incident, last year.
Infact, this was the come-back film of the super-star actress, after a 15-year hiatus, where she focused on her domestic life and the upbringing of her two daughters.
‘English Vinglish’ centers around Shashi, a housewife and home-maker who is happy looking after her family, and making ‘laddus’ (Indian traditional sweets). She is not too bothered about her lack of English-speaking skills, inspite of the digs her husband and family make about that.

Things change, when she goes to New York, to help in the marriage of her niece, and finds herself in many embarrassing situations, at not knowing the English language. That’s when she decides to enroll for a short English-speaking course in the city. Shashi meets a bunch of lively, multi-racial personalities, including a Pakistani cab-driver, Mexican nanny, closeted African, and French man who starts getting attracted to her. They love her innocent, effervescent personality, and have lots of fun together.

She is confused by the French man’s attentions, though it raises her self-worth. That’s when her family joins her in New York for the wedding. They are surprised by Shashi’s newly acquired English-language skills, and even more, by her impressive ‘English’ toast to the wedding-couple. They soon realize that they had judged her unfairly. But Shashi’s self-confidence has been totally boosted.
The film, with its lively scenes and vibrant energy, pleased audiences around the world, starting with the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival. It won Audience awards, ‘Popular’ prizes, and was a huge box-office hit. Debut female director Gauri Shinde, formerly in advertising, made a big splash with this film.

Don’t miss a scintillating Indian comedy, starring one of the greatest actresses of the country, who is sadly no more the film also boasts of a delightful guest- appearance by the great actor Amitabh Bachchan.

Critics:
Hollywood Reporter: “The way the character has been crafted by Shinde, and interpreted by Sridevi, is gloriously feminine, and uniquely Indian.”
The Guardian: “An un-demanding picture that goes down as well as the heroine’s tasty ladoos!”
Times of India: “It’s a sweet, sensitive, and superlative film that makes you laugh, cry, and smile. One of the best films of the year!”

The Opening Film of RCB Film Club’s 2019 Movie Series, is supported by the
Embassy of India, who will host a Reception after the screening, which will include Indian wines and snacks.
Newly-arrived Indian Ambassador HE Suchitra Durai will introduce the film.

Parineeti Chopra Is Chilling In Thailand At A Bachelorette Party And It’s Not For Priyanka Chopra

Parineeti shared several pictures and videos on her Instagram handle and stories, and they will make you want to plan one such trip soon with your friends too. From enjoying in the pool to visiting the market, chilling beach-side, it surely looks like a super fun bachelorette party. All the girls also wore the flower crown, twinned in white, spent the nights partying, and most importantly, clicked a lot of pictures. Looking at all the photographs, the group of friends is surely having the time of their lives.

Sharing this picture, she wrote, “ɟɟo ɥɔʇıʍS 🧜‍♀️ #AdrikasBachelorette #PaddyWho.”
For this snap, her caption read, “Wear some red lipstick and figure it out”💄 #ThaiNightMarkets#AdrikasBachelorette #PaddyWho.”The ‘Ishaqzaade’ star captioned below picture, “Lights. Camera. Bachelorette! 🦄 ☂️🔮@hot.hair.balloon@adrika.shetty






While the bachelorette party usually involves friends, we are not sure if Parineeti will be invited for Priyanka’s bash, if the actor is tying the knot soon with Nick Jonas. The ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ actor had earlier accompanied the couple when the singer had come to India for the first time and they headed to Goa. Parineeti shares a good equation with Nick too and had earlier joked that she is negotiating the deal to return his shoes when she will hide them during the wedding, a custom in North Indian cultures. The actor had said she is demanding 5 million USD for them. Parineeti had another reason to celebrate recently, as she turned another year older on 22 October.
