Shakuntala Devi Full Movie Full Review | Vidya Balan starrer biographical drama ‘Shakuntala Devi‘ has been released online digitally. If you are planning to watch online this film on the weekend, then read here first its review… how is it? Should you watch it or not? What’s new in the film?
What’s The Storyline? What’s in the film?
The trend of making biopics in Bollywood has come fast. Till now only biopics were being made on famous people and actors but after Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Super 30‘ biopic, director Anu Menon has been made on a biopic on a great mathematician of India, Shakuntala Devi.
The calculating speed of Shakuntala Devi was so fast that she was known as “Human-Computer” all over the world and her name was also recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records.
But now about 7 years after her death, a film based on her life has been made ‘Shakuntala Devi’, in which Vidya Balan is seen in the lead role.
Shakuntala Devi Full Review
Review: The film reveals the life of Shankutla Devi not only in mathematics but also as a woman and mother. She is depicted as a fearless and independent thinking woman who lives her life on her own terms.
Mission Mangal actress Vidya Balan’s dialogue in the film ‘I Never Lose Always Remember That‘ may also reflect Shakuntala Devi’s overconfidence, which led to her losing Lok Sabha elections against Indira Gandhi where she did lose badly. In this way, Shakuntala Devi could easily solve mathematics questions but her personal life was completely confusing.
The first half of the film is completely engaged which is fun and entertaining.
Cast And Characters Review
Vidya Balan is completely absorbed deep into her character and has given an excellent outstanding performance. Vidya Balan’s makeover was shot extensively after moving to London.
In the film, Shakuntala Devi’s husband Paritosh Banerjee is played by Jisshu Sengupta and is very good in his role.
Sanya Malhotra as Anupama and Amit Sadh as Anupama’s husband has done justice to their characters.
Director Anu Menon has shown the life of Shakuntala Devi in the film in a very honest manner. The film is well filmed in the 1950s and 1960s. The music of Sachin-Jigar is also good in the film.
So much melodrama has shown in the film. In the end, the filmmakers are seen trying to establish Shankulata Devi by showing real-life pictures. Also, the storyline is giving its point of view about the rights of women in the film.
Why You Should watch Shakuntala Devi Movie?
This is not just a biopic of Shankutla Devi, but a very entertaining film with superb acting by actress Vidya Balan.
