Shakuntala Devi, the human embodiment of a computer calculator, is one of the most interesting and intelligent persons to have ever lived among us.
The late mathematical genius was a fierce feminist living in a sexist environment who, with her strong mindset and unhindered ambition, managed to achieve great fame, recognition and respect.
Writer-Director Anu Menon’s eponymous film on the late mathematician, starring Vidya Balan, Sanya Malhotra, Jisshu Sengupta and Amit Sadh is an absolute eye-opener.
The movie is an attempt to understand how Shakuntala’s love of numbers and its accompanied glory shaped her life and relationships.
Here are some of the interesting dialogues from the film that just confirm that Shakuntala Devi was indeed the most awesome, sassy and inspiring woman ever!

The movie shows all the life angles of the mathematical genius – her fame, her conflicts, her struggle, her heartbreak and even her anger. This film explores the layered dynamics between the mother-daughter duo, making it an extremely compelling movie to watch.
The movie is an amazing roller-coaster ride into the life of the late Shakuntala Devi and forces the audience to wonder why society judges women more harshly than men when it comes to their outlook on career, parenting and ambition.
