7 Movies Based on Mathematicians

"There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres." – Pythagoras

You can either love mathematics or you can hate it. There is no in-between when it comes to this subject. Every science is competing with one another to establish themselves as THE secret behind the lives we live, and Mathematics is surely a strong contender. Right from the discovery of the Number Zero to various geometric theorems which make our life easier (without us realizing it), there is a lot this subject holds within its folds. Mathematicians believe in this magic of numbers and spend their lives coming up with ways to play with them. On World Math Day, we are listing down some movies which have paid homage to some of the greatest mathematicians to walk among us.
