'English Vinglish' marks the comeback of Sridevi after a 14-year sabbatical from Hindi cinema and a gap of 26 years in Tamil cinema. Will the eternal ‘diva’ be able to pull in the crowds after such a long break?
Astro-numerologist Bhavikk Sangghvi predicts the fate of director Gauri Shinde's maiden venture:
"The title 'ENGLISH VINGLISH' is adding up to Number 52 – which is symbolized by the signs of revolution, upheaval, strife, failure and prevention and is not a fortunate number if it comes out in calculations relating to future events," explains Bhavikk.
"Looking from the context of the movie, Sridevi plays a Pune based Maharashtrian housewife who enrolls in an English speaking course in order to please her husband and family. Going by that point of view, it seems the film will 'click' with its target audience (mainly multiplexes of big cities) and keep them happy," predicts Bhavikk.
He continues, "Like I have been saying from the start, the year 2012 which adds up to Number 5 (Mercury) will be proving lucky for most Number 5 people, places, names, dates etc. and in this case, the release date of the film 5th October 2012 is just 'perfect'."
"The film's leading lady Sridevi is also running in her 50th year (13th August 1963) and hence her performance in the film will be widely appreciated – be it the critics or the elite crowds."
"To put it simply, ‘English Vinglish’ will prove to a great 'learning' experience for all," signs off Bhavikk.
