Vidya Balan is the protagonist Shakuntala, along with her, Sanya Malhotra plays the role of Shakuntala Devi’s daughter in the biopic.

Shakuntala Devi trailer review:
Shakuntala Devi can be seen solving even the most difficult equations without breaking a sweat in the nearly 3-minute trailer. The trailer also sheds light on her personal life. The second half of the trailer speaks of the strained relationship between the mother and her daughter Anupama. Anupama is further incensed that the mother has used her power of attorney to sell off properties that belonged to her. This element of grey to Shakuntala’s character might work in its favor as the audience has been served the quintessential goody-two-shoes biopic multiple times in the recent past.
The movie will release on Amazon Prime on July 31. All in all, here is is unique, calculative story and the gripping, entertaining trailer makes Shakuntala Devi an interesting film to watch out for.
