Review: Shakuntala Devi, though is a biography of a Mathematics genius, the film is more like a Vidya Balan’s show. Not many knew Shakuntala Devi until now and now we all know even the personal life of Shakuntala Devi with this film. It may have been shown in a better and more respectful manner. The movie shows how messed up her personal life was. The director in order to show how well she has balanced her work and her personal life, actually showed how selfish she was and how messed up her relationships and her personal life were. Shakuntala Devi was India’s pride, her character and life should have been shown in more respectful manner.
