Vidya Balan has shone in the trailer of Shakuntala Devi. Vidya looks the part and plays the part very well from what can be seen in the trailer. Her child like enthusiasm and joy at solving mathematical problems with a little bit of attitude is similar to what Shakuntala Devi had in her life and times. The period era recreated in the film also gives an old world charm.
The only disappointment was Sanya Malhotra who plays Vidya’s daughter. Her outbursts in the trailer look cringy. Hoping she has performed better in the film.
The movie releases on Amazon Prime on 31st July.
