We can’t help but be grateful for the release of new movies on OTT platforms during this unpreceded pandemic. In just a few more days, Vidya Balan‘s Shakuntala Devi is going to be premiering on Amazon Prime Video. Here’s all you need to know.
You may get a little dizzy from the maths calculations
This film is a biopic based on the life of maths wizard Shakuntala Devi. She was often referred to as the ‘human computer’ due to her ability to solve complex mathematical problems quickly and effortlessly. Shakuntala Devi’s mind-blowing talent also earned her a place in The Guinness Book of World Records.
Vidya Balan seems perfect for the role
The trailer for this film was just released and Vidya Balan looks exceptional in it. We can already tell it’s going to be hilarious, fun, and filled with lots of drama. Directed by Anu Menon, this film also stars Sanya Malhotra, Amit Sadh, and Jisshu Sengupta among others.
Maths = fun?
In an earlier interview, Vidya said, “I am extremely excited to play the ‘human computer’ Shakuntala Devi on the big screen. She was truly someone who embraced her individuality, had a strong feminist voice and braved many a naysayer to reach the pinnacle of success. But what truly fascinates me is that you wouldn’t normally associate a fun person with math…and she completely turns that perception on its head.”
Well, it’s safe to say that we have high expectations from this movie.
Make sure you are subscribed to Amazon Prime Video where this movie will premiere on July 31.
