I was so engrossed in the movie; my eyes reflected the burst of energy that Devi was on the screen. I felt the bottom of my popcorn tub and came up empty-handed, well that was weird it finished too fast. Just then I saw another hand coming down into it again, it was the person sitting next to me and then she turned her head; oh my lord, it was Shakuntala Devi or maybe the ghost of her.
She said “Sorry I didn’t mean to but then again I’m not sad that I did”. She was just the same quirky, bold, and unabashedly unapologetic. At the end of the movie, she squeezed my hand and told me “That was too little screen time”. I asked her how and I wish I hadn’t. She said while we were watching the movie I simultaneously counted the seconds and divided it to my life seconds and they weren’t enough” and I told her “They never would be.”
Back to the Present
Amazon Prime brings us another story that will undoubtedly be better than the ones before. The movie has been believed to cover the life of Shakuntala Devi who the world knew by the name of Human Computer. Shakuntala Devi was a genius, a mathematician and these words fail to measure the magnitude of her brilliance. As much as of a genius she was, she was also an Indian woman, and no matter what time you travel to.
Indian women will always remain beautiful, bold, and unique in their own ways. She was an inspiration for this country as well as women across the globe and I hope Amazon Prime’s Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer movie manages to showcase that fully and not just the tip of the iceberg.
What do we know so far?
Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer movie from Amazon Prime is set to release on the platform soon. In Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer Vidya Balan plays the role of Devi, Sanya Malhotra plays the role of Anupama Banerjee with Amit Sadh and Jisshu Sengupta in other key roles. Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer amazon prime movie is a biopic that we hope touches our hearts and not just our need to put geniuses on a pedestal and think they never had it difficult.
From the Trailer of Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer
Amazon Prime’s Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer dropped the trailer a few days ago and what we saw in that approximately three minutes was enough for us to form very high expectations from the movie. In the trailer we see Vidya Balan playing Devi and everything seemed like a bed of roses for her, from a supportive father to the world being astonished and left baffled at her calculations to her finding the love of her life. Although nothing can be as simple and we see that when problems start to arise after she becomes a mother.
Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer Amazon Prime is a memoir of Shakuntala Devi’s struggle of balancing her genius, the need to showcase her talents, change lives, and motherhood. Shakuntala was in no way an ordinary woman and her daughter’s wish for her to be one just gives a glimpse of what could have been wrong in their relationship. The trailer has certainly managed to irk our curiosity by showing us how humane Shakuntala was; it makes us believe that she was just like one of us struggling at times and did not have it all together as opposed to our idea of perfection when it comes to our idols.
Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer Amazon Prime Release Date
Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer movie of Amazon Prime was initially supposed to release on 8th May 2020 but due to coronavirus pandemic is now set to release on 31st July 2020 on Amazon Prime. This is to ensure that we do not miss out on a life-changing story and enjoy it from the comfort of our homes without risking our health or of our loved ones.
Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer Amazon Prime IMDb
IMDb is a site that a lot of us turn to when we are confused as to watch we should watch. Ratings have known to make or break a movie’s success and the same would apply to Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer movie. The trailer shows us a platter of human emotions served with the raw and pure acting that the actors have presented. If this were to continue throughout the movie alongside the roller coaster of a story that Shakuntala Devi’s is, we are sure that Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer Amazon Prime IMDb ratings would be soaring through the sky.
Speculations of Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer
From the trailer let me tell you we have a lot of expectations and as do the fans. We hope that this Anu Menon movie manages to showcase the complexity that surrounds the battle or rather balance that is difficult for women across the globe when it comes to your dreams versus motherhood.
Anu Menon is known to showcase characters with very strong emotions on the silver screen and we expect no less from her. Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer Amazon Prime’s trailer portrays Devi as a fun, quirky, and full of life person that she must have been and a lot more.
Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer movie might be the Yorker of the year where people have been waiting to get to see something substantial and hopeful. Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer movie might as well be the female protagonist movie that we all hoped for but never get. Feminism is not just putting women on a pedestal anymore but rather embracing the fact that we are human too and we have our fair share of problems regardless of how much of a brilliant job we do to get through it for our loved ones.
Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer movie releases on the 31st of this month and we can’t wait to watch and see if it just met our expectations or if it manages to go above and beyond. Shakuntala was a woman for whom even infinity could have been too little; we are waiting to watch how the team manages to fit it within three hours or less.
Remember to tune in on 31st July and do let us know what you think. Impatiently awaiting the reviews set to come in after the release of Shakuntala Devi: The Human Computer Movie.
