Shakuntala Devi trailer starring Vidya Balan as Mathematics Genius Shakuntala Devi is out now. The movie is set to release on Amazon prime on 31st July.
Shakuntala Devi, known as human computer is a mathematician who made it into the 1982 edition of ‘The Guinness Book Of Records’ for calculating 7,686,369,774,870 × 2,465,099,745,779 this number within seconds. The film also stars Jishu Sengupta, Sanya Malhotra and Amit Sadh.
The movie is written by Anu Menon, Nayanika Mahtani, Ishita Moitra and directed by Anu Menon. The Vidya Balan starrer is produced by Sony Pictures Network India.
From the trailer, Vidya Balan is looking very appealing and is living the mathematician’s life and her effortless acting with strong punch lines is clearly visible. But what standsout from the trailer is, the director and the writer have tried very hard and are successful in depicting another world of Shakuntala Devi that is not known to all of us.
The tale of mother and daughter played by Sanya Malhotra looks very promising on screen. From the trailer it’s clearly visible the makers have tried to show the lesser known struggle that Shakuntala Devi went through her life by keeping an humourous touch to it.
The film was scheduled to release on 8th May 2020 but seeing the ongoing situation the producers decided to release the film on Amazon Prime Video. Vidya’s last release ‘Mission Mangal’ went onto become one of the biggest hits of 2019 thereby entering 200 Cr club. Vidya is one of the most bankable stars of this generation. Vidya has proved herself time and again with women solo films like Kahaani, Kahaani 2 and The Dirty Picture. The actress is again back and this time the responsibility is relying on Vidya’s shoulder.
