There was much talk and anticipation on Ajith’s cameo in English Vinglish and the actor did not let down his fans. In fact his performance goes beyond pleasing just his fan base and gives our entire nation a shot in the arm with his quips at the New York immigration officer.
In his brief appearance on screen, Ajith looks his cool and charming best. His character is beautifully reassuring as he boosts the morale of a first-time flyer, Sridevi. His message of shaking off one’s inhibitions on the plane and in a foreign country is truly remarkable and should resonate with people who find themselves in similar situations. He also makes a tongue-in-cheek remark about how his own Tamil speaking skills have come a long way from his early days.
Director Gauri Shinde has also managed to show a very uncharacteristically playful and witty Ajith that will delight not just his fans but will also evoke a smile and applause from regular movie-goers.
