About the story
The film is based on renowned Mathematician Shakuntla Devi. Her Life journey, struggles, her motherhood versus mathematics. Everything is depicted beautifully in this film.
Born in 1929 British India in the erstwhile Mysore State, Shakuntala Devi’s arithmetic abilities were discovered at the tender age of three, as her father — who worked at a circus — taught her a card trick. Soon after, Devi went on roadshows with her father to demonstrate said abilities.
After she moved to London in 1944, that turned into world tours, including across Europe in 1950 and New York in 1976. Devi was inducted into the 1982 Guinness Book of Records after she multiplied two random 13-digit numbers in 28 seconds. Devi was also an LGBTQ advocate. She died at the age of 83 in Bangalore in 2013.
