After Shoojit Sircar’s katha of crankiness Gulabo Sitabo it is the turn of another cross-generation drama to premier on Amazon Prime Video . While the first announcement was made on Thursday morning by Amazon, the second announcement came on Friday morning.
In Shakuntala Devi, Vidya Balan plays the eponymous role of the mathematical genius and her tumultuous relationship with her daughter,played by Sanya Malhotra.
Interestingly the two Amazon acquisitions share a similar plotting format. Both pitch a seemingly unreasonable senior protagonist against a junior. With the official announcement from Amazon on Shakuntala Devi coming in on Friday morning we can tell you that Vidya Balan has given an award winning performance . She is not only feisty and hotheaded but also vulnerable as Shakuntala Devi.
