Shakuntala Devi Movie Review Cast
Vidya has once again won hearts with her performance in the film. Looking at them, it does not seem that they have to work very hard for any scene.
At the same time, Sanya Malhotra in the character of Anu will also be able to win the hearts of the audience. While Amit Sadh and Jishu Sengupta did not get much screen space. But the director who gave him the role has done justice to him.
Special attention is given to every look
‘Four more shots please!’ The director of the web series, Anu Menon, has also put the life of Shakuntala Devi on the screen. 2 hours and 10 minutes when the story begins and ends, it is not known.
Anu has paid close attention to everything from the character and manner of speech in the film. However, she could get an actress to perform like Vidya Balan.
The film has music from Sachin-Jigar, which can be called average. There is no song that you would like to hear again and again. But no song will feel like it has been forced.
Cinematography is also quite spectacular. The film featured 1950s London and 1999 Bangalore. This time has been made exactly like the old times. Every frame has tremendous colors, old buildings are captured properly.
Shakuntala Devi Movie Review
One of the special features of the film is that it does not just rely on mathematics, but also shows Shakuntala Devi as a mother, wife and daughter.
It will be a wonderful experience to see this woman who laughs openly in every situation and the tangled personal life of ‘human computer’. Overall, it is an entertaining film.
We are giving this film a rating of three out of five.
