Shakuntala Devi trailer starring Vidya Balan seems promising and well calculated.
Directed by Anu Menon, Shakuntala Devi trailer has hit YouTube and other social medias with positive word of mouth incepting expectations in audience.
Shakuntala Devi is the story of the celebrated mathematician Shakuntala Devi nicknamed ‘human computer’. With an unbelievable brain in maths, Shakuntala Devi is well known around the world. She has portrayed her magical mathematical abilities worldwide and owns a Guinness Record too.
The film Shakuntala Devi accounts the life history of the titular character. As in the trailer, it tells us the story of her achievements, her personal life and the relationship with her daughter which doesn’t seem to be on a good note.
Vidya Balan has transformed herself into Shakuntala Devi. Her dialogue delivery, age to age transformation of character, wittiness, everything has been brought to life. Vidya Balan, who is a master of her craft, is once again ready to take our breaths away with an astounding performance. Not once she has left us without impressing and this time, from the trailer itself, she leaves us open mouthed.
Anu Menon, who has directed three films before, including one anthology, is stepping first time into an out and out commercial film starring one of the leading, mainstream actresses.
The film was first lined up for a theatrical release but due to Covid19 pandemic, the makers decided to release it directly on OTT platform. The film will be streaming on Amazon Prime Video from July 31st.
