Trailer Talk: Loud, Dramatic But Entertaining Presentation Of A Genius


The trailer of arguably the most awaited filmy release from Amazon Prime Video is out. We are talking about the biopic of Shakuntala Devi starring Vidya Balan.

When we think about a biopic, usually gritty and realistic images surface in our mind. However, some times there are very entertaining ones within the same space. Sanju was a recent example in Bollywood and Shakuntala Devi feels like a spiritual successor to it. The tone, the colour grading and the whole approach (a bit louder than usual) to the biopic look so similar to it.

The good thing is it works for Shakuntala Devi. Everyone seems to pitch in, correctly, to the tone set by the director. The trailer promises a lot of fun and some drama too. The dialogue towards the end about being dramatic fits so well with the overall making. The core conflict between, mother and daughter looks unique, and it could be the make or break deal for the movie.

Vidya Balan is in fine form as usual. She lights up the proceedings (from the glimpses) with her presence. She assures that the right casting decision has been made. The rest look apt for their parts, as well.

Check out the trailer below. Anu Menon directs the movie. Sanya Malhotra, Amit Sadh, Jisshu Sengupta and others play vital supporting parts. The biopic will stream worldwide from July 31st on Amazon Prime Video.
