English Vinglish scores over Barfi! in the race for the best small budget movie in 2012

English Vinglish scores over Barfi! in the race for the best small budget movie in 2012

A poll conducted for the prestigious BollywoofLife Awards has made it clear that Sridevi has indeed won over her fans with her smashing comeback…

In a recent poll conducted for the BollywoodLife Awards 2012, various small budget movies like Barfi!, English Vinglish, Vicky Donor, Gangs Of Wasseypur, OMG: Oh My God!, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurrana and Kahaani competed with each other for the top spot.

And emerging as the winner of this poll was Sridevi’s comeback vehicle English Vinglish that earned 60 percent votes. Barfi! followed on the second position with 14 percent votes and Kahaani on third with 8 percent votes.

Now doesn’t that make it amply clear that Sridevi still rules the hearts of her fans? Perhaps. But quiz the effervescent actor about what made English Vinglish so popular and she humbly replies, “We in India speak Indianised English, something like Hinglish. And maybe that’s what struck a chord with the viewers of our country.” Hmmm, point noted, ma’am.

But tell us, readers: Do you agree with the fact that English Vinglish was the best small budget movie made in 2012?

      English Vinglish is the best movie of the year and one of the best movies ever. Sridevi is the best actress India has ever produced. She deserves national award as well as Film fare award!!!!

  • Aahna

    Its great to see English Vinglish topping the chart. Was never a big fan of Sridevi and had only watched her in Mr. India and Chaalbaaz. But this movie made me her ardent admirer. Seriously no actress of current generation are anywhere close to Sridevi. May be Vidya Balan seconds her.

  • Abed Hasan

    Undoubtedly English Vinglish is the best film 2012,be it small or big budget.And SRIDEVI is the best actress of this year too,if she doesn’t get this deserving one..then it will be proven that award can be purchase!

  • rishi

    Yes, English Vinglish was contemporary, meaningful, relevant, touching and inspiring. Sridevi and al the other actors rocked the film with their natural, simple but very effective performances.

  • Deepa Bhatia

    100% Agree. English Vinglish has a very simple story in a very simple style has come out as a master piece. The unique selling point of this simple movie was the fact that almost everyone of us can identify with the characters. Gauri proved herself as a remarkable director with debu film. Sridevi brings Shashi’s character to life. Sridevi has performed extremely well as Shashi.

  • Smith

    EV wins makes us believe dat we still love Clean Films with strong social message.. n SRIDEVI donning the cap as Shashi makes it more believable!!!
    All Actors in d film was unique, precisely charaterised with deft handling by Gauri!!
    Filmfare & National award will be NEXT for d Queen!!

  • Halimali

    Of course it has to be English Vinglish and Sridevi. Sri gave us the best this year. She is the best and the best will always give the best. Congratulations


    I totally agree with the people’s verdict. Sridevi dazzled in English Vinglish like none other actress in 2012. Vidya, in Kahaani, is close on Sri’s heels though.

  • Pravash Sahu

    Of course English Vinglish was the best movie of 2012 i think this movie was a all time best movie not only in 2012 and Sridevi was the Best Actress india has ever produced.
