Shakuntala Devi is the latest release on OTT platform in India. It is a female centric film but it is equally motivating for everyone. I won’t say it is a film about woman empowerment but it is definitely a film for people who wanted to dream big and achieve it.
The film is 2 hours 7 minutes long and it is a biopic on late mathematics genius Shakuntala Devi. Vidya Balan has given her best again after Tumhari Sulu, Kahaani and many others.Talking about the budget of Shakuntala Devi movie, it is not being revealed by the makers. By looking at the whole movie, one can clearly say that the budget of the film would be around 25 to 30 crores. The film would have been sold to a huge amount to Amazon Prime. The price would have been around or over 30 crores for sure. It is a profitable deal for producers and OTT platform.What could be the fate if Shakuntala Devi would have released in theaters in a normal scenario? It could have definitely recovered the making cost even if it got released in theaters. The makers didn’t spent much on promotion as it is directly released online or they must have spent 4-5 crores for theatrical release.By looking at the movie, it is clear that this may come in the category of decent hit on OTT platform.Directed by Anu Menon, the film also stars Amit Sadh, Sanya Malhotra in key roles.What are your thoughts on this news story?
