Our Shakuntala Devi Review is based on facts that are driven by true feelings towards the character played by Vidya Balan.
Unlike the 90% population who may not know how to calculate the square of 409 or cube root of some 23 random digits, Shakuntala Devi was regarded as the human-computer of her time. The woman was a plethora of mathematical magic and a quirky sense of humor.
Released on Amazon Prime on 31st July 2020, the movie has turned out to be one of ‘the most entertaining watch’ of the year. Reprising the role of Shakuntala Ji is Vidya Balan, who has impressed us yet again with her poetic acting skills. Right from the very first scene when you see her till she concludes with her speech, Vidya Ma’am has very cleverly managed to steal the show and our hearts at the same time.
Shakuntala Devi Review – To Calculate or not!
Standing at a wide angle of ‘4 stars out of 5,’ the movie is a highly calculated masterstroke of acting, story portrayal, and sound design. The all-time favorite Sanya Malhotra, who played the role of Shakuntala Devi’s daughter in the movie, has proven what a mother-daughter relationship feels.
In the move to show the importance of relations, the movie takes a very significant stand every now and then. From the sweet love to the nok-jhoks between mother-daughter, father-daughter, and husband-wife, Shakuntala Devi – the movie – speaks at length.
Speaking more about the acting skills, Jisshu Sengupta and Amit Sadh have also proven what it takes to be fathers and an understanding husband. Both the actors have done a perfect justice with the roles played by them.
Another exciting thing about the movie is how it has been represented on the screen. Whether setting the scene of the 1950s in India or London, the team has done a commendable job. A special thanks to the writer who curated the most meaningful and lovable dialogues. On the other hand, Anu Menon, who directed this movie, has unleashed another reason for happiness in the form of this movie; thereby, making our Shakuntala Devi review meter has unimaginably pushed the numbers to the sky.
Regarding any negative points in the movie, we wish to stop us and honor the work. True, there may be a few, but we don’t feel like sharing any. However, if you choose to, do tell us in the comment section!

Shakuntala Devi Review – To watch or not!
Even the most perfect things or happenings in the world are criticized by people, but if you take a bird-eye look at the movie, there seems to be no substantial reason you should not spend your time watching it. For a film to be a good watch, there should be a good screenplay, great acting, and relatable content. Proudly, all of the above are present in this movie, and hence we conclude that this movie is a must-watch.
