It’s has been raining incessantly in Hyderabad and it was perfect weather to just snuggle in and watch a movie.
I was just browsing through various options and stopped scrolling when I saw a picture of Sanjay Mishra on the poster. I read the name of the movie ‘Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain’ and asked my son who was sitting close by, about the movie.
He said, “Is that a movie, when was it released? “
I really was intrigued. The rating was only 2 .5 stars but my instinct said, I should watch.
And I was right. What a heartwarming movie set in Varanasi with a perfect cast.
Sanjay Mishra plays an annoying, grumpy, sexist man, Yashwant Batra, sometimes sweet too, who will remind you of someone from your family, some uncle in the neighbourhood, the men who believe in bringing in the bread, the duty they take pride in, is what marriage is all about.
And the wife, Kiran played by Ekavali Khanna, is a submissive, frustrated wife. She hides the disappointment behind forced smiles.
They have a daughter played by Shivani Raghuvanshi, who does not want to live like her mother and refuses to marry the guy her father chooses.
She gets married to the guy with who she falls in love, her neighbour played by Anshuman Jha. Their love story is in stark contrast to her parents.
What I really love about this movie is it’s so relatable. Unlike all the over the top movies which are being made today, this is like seeing something which might have been happening in your house or your neighbourhood.
The scene where the daughter tells the parents about her secret marriage was so heartwarming. That’s how it happens in a middle-class family. No hysterics at all.
When Mrs Batra decides that it is better to move on than live in a loveless marriage, Mr Batra realises that love can become a very transient emotion, if not expressed in regular intervals.
The second part of the movie is all about how he tries to say those words, that is why the title ‘ Angrezi mein kehte hain’, at least that’s what I understood.
There is a parallel love story of Firoz and Suman who don’t find it difficult at all to express their love for each other and it is weaved into the main plot beautifully. Pankaj Tripathi plays Firoz and he does full justice to the role
Can’t end my take on this film without mentioning the endearing Brijendra Kala who plays a cheerful neighbour with a very big heart.
A perfect cast for a beautiful movie which made me smile throughout.

I wanted to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting 'win' moments.
My daughter turned eight years old in January, and among the various gifts she received from friends and family was an absolutely beautiful personal journal for self-growth. A few days ago, she was exploring the pages when she found a section for writing a letter to her future self. She found this intriguing and began jotting down her thoughts animatedly.
My curiosity piqued and she could sense it immediately. She assured me that she would show me the letter soon, and lo behold, she kept her word.
I glanced at her words, expecting to see a mention of her parents in the first sentence. But, to my utter delight, the first thing she had written about was her AMBITION. Yes, the caps here are intentional because I want to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting ‘win’ moments.
Uorfi Javed has been making waves through social media, and is often the target of trolls. So who and what exactly is this intriguing young woman?
Uorfi Javed (no relation to Javed Akhtar) is a name that crops up in my news feeds every now and again. It is usually because she got trolled for being in some or other ‘daring’ outfit and then posting those images on social media. If I were asked, I would not be able to name a single other reason why she is famous. I am told that she is an actor but I would have no frankly no clue about her body of work (pun wholly unintended).
So is Urfi Javed (or Uorfi Javed as she prefers) famous only for being famous? How does she impact the cause of feminism by permitting herself to be objectified, trolled, reviled?
