Vidya Balan’s new film “Shakuntala Devi” on Amazon Prime Video is a storm

Bollywood actress Vidya Balan, who played the math genius in her new movie “Shakuntala Devi,” has described her as a “small-town Indian girl who took the world by storm”.

The screenplay, written by Menon and Nayanika Mahtani, is, as the movie states upfront, “based on a true story seen through the eyes of a daughter”. The movie depicts the making of a legendary mathematician, writer, and astrologer in an era when a woman was not expected to ‘perform’ miracles of arithmetic on the stage. 

The film acknowledges the contribution of Anupama Banerji, daughter of Shakuntala Devi and her son-in-law Ajay Abhaya Kumar, played on the screen by Sanya Malhotra and Amit Sadh respectively, in the shaping of the tale. 

It is a MUST WATCH movie for all as it has it all! Make sure you watch the movie until the end credits, which start with photos from the personal albums of Shakuntala Devi and her daughter.
