On the filmmaker’s birthday today, here’s revisiting some moments from her films that make them so special
Gauri Shinde turns a year older today (July 6). The ace filmmaker is celebrating a quiet birthday this year considering the pandemic all around. The filmmaker has over the years garnered much critical acclaim for her films English Vinglish and Dear Zindagi that are celebrated by the audience even today. On this special day, here’s revisiting some moments from Gauri Shinde’s films that reflect her genius.
Language as a Barrier
In English Vinglish, the director shows how emotions don’t need a language. In a scene from the film, two people hear out each other’s pain even without words. We have often seen our parents having this trouble in day-to-day life, but that doesn’t stop them from communicating without words.
Open to Learning New Things
Being a housewife is an under-appreciated job wherein Sridevi has made the character look so relatable in each of our lives. Her character Shashi has her own small business of making homemade laddoos which makes her an entrepreneur. A new word she learned in her English class made her feel the joy of learning new things.
Peptalk is most Important
In Dear Zindagi, Alia Bhatt may be with her friends in a car, but her friend gives her the definition of a perfect boyfriend. Isn’t that what we all want in our lives – a pep talk? Even if it doesn’t make sense for that moment, but the feeling of having people around you who care about you as an individual is great. Isn’t it a mushy feeling?
Best Relationship Advice
It is said that ‘When you seek love, love seeks you.’ Love can be with whatever you like to do in your life – it can be coffee, a book, or just a gossip session. We have bracketed our definition of love which has narrowed the options for us, isn’t it? So we just need to find that special ‘rishta’ as Shah Rukh Khan puts it across to Alia Bhatt.
