FILM’S INSPIRATION and STORY:
This film is a Biography of one of the greatest mathematician SHAKUNTALA DEVI, better known as the HUMAN CALCULATOR. She was born to Kannada parents. She didn’t have any formal education still was selected to demonstrate her arithmetic abilities in the UNIVERSITY OF MYSORE.
On 18 June 1980, she demonstrated the multiplication of two 13-digit numbers—7,686,369,774,870 × 2,465,099,745,779—picked at random by the Computer Department of IMPERIAL COLLEGE OF LONDON. She correctly answered 18,947,668,177,995,426,462,773,730 in 28 seconds. This event was recorded in 1982 edition of THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS. And the author Stefen Smith said “the result is so far superior to anything previously reported that it can only be described as unbelievable”.
In 197, she wrote THE WORLD OF HOMOSEXUALS, the first study of homosexuality in India. In a documentary of THE STRAIGHT, she said that she wrote it because his husband was a homosexual and she wanted to know them very closely.
The trailer starts with her introduction as a child and how she was in her childhood and how much everybody used to appreciate her. And later on how she was selected to demonstrate in front of many scholars in the UNIVERSITY OF MYSORE. One of the most amazing moments is they have recreated the scene where she makes history by registering her name in the THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS.
The trailer continues where she falls in love with a guy and they have a daughter and then they get separated for god knows what reason but if you know her actual story you can guess the reasons. Sanya Malhotra being her daughter is angry with her mother for being so different than the others and making her stay away from her father. After watching the trailer I concluded one thing that she is really obsessed with winning that she cannot afford to lose to anyone, not even her daughter. But maybe in the later part of the Film, she will realize her mistakes and end up writing the book.
