Shakuntala Devi is finally here on Amazon Prime Video and we are happy to review the movie. It is the biopic of the famous math genius- Shakuntala Devi. She was a Guinness World Record holder and a renowned mathematician who performed onstage with the name of Human Computer. The story is showed by director Anu Menon, with the eyes of her daughter .
A girl whose talent for maths was identified at a young age, Shakuntala supplemented her family’s dwindling resources by doing maths shows from an early age. Shakuntala Devi always lived life in her own terms and never believed in uncompromising in life. A Spanish man named Javier teaches her English and the way of life in Europe, as she finds fame as the ‘human computer’, eventually working her way into the Guinness Book of World Records. She marries an IAS officer named Paritosh (Jisshu Sengupta) but she fails to find a balance between maths and motherhood. Her testy relationship with daughter Anu (Sanya Malhotra), who wants a ‘normal’ life, forms the main conflict in the film.
The movie is definitely shown as the struggle Shakuntala Devi tries to balance between being a mother and a maths lover. Shakuntala is not perfect. She has her imperfections like the rest of us. The film seems in a hurry to get from point A to point B, like a standard cradle-to-the-grave biopic. A woman who never really understood the meaning of the word ‘normal’, Shakuntala Devi now gets a biopic which can only be described thus.
