Vidya Balan as Shakuntala Devi did an outstanding performance. I have even seen the original clipping of the legendary Shakuntala Devi and I must say, Vidya Balan beautifully managed to inherit the attitude, speaking style for the movie. Jishu Sengupta and Sanya Malhotra did well too but Vidya Balan just nailed it.
At times I felt scene transitions were quick like a very fast-forwarded life and after the second half, the movie tends to lose its pace. But the melodramatic ending again was okayish.
Overall, in our Shakuntala Devi movie review, we would like to rate this movie 3.5 stars out of 5. If you love biopic or want to know more about the “Human-Computer” then it is definitely a good watch, I recommend it.
