In short, this is the remarkable story of a spy who feeds information to the Indian Army during the time of Kargil war, 1971.

The heroic story of Patriotism and loyalty

Alia Bhatt as Sehmat (name changed) portrays the role a spy woman who was trained to be a facilitator only for the Indian Army, but she went far beyond her duty. After her operation ended, she returned to India with her son in her womb, who went on to become an officer in the Indian Army. The story also unfurls the ultimate test of patriotism for Sehmat’s family, who puts their daughter to do such a dangerous thing.

Gives place to the lost names of Patriots

No woman in earlier times was allowed to serve her country on Indian borders, but Sehmat and family’s courage and determination is not much known in the history Indo-Kargil war, 1971. A woman who unofficially dedicated her life to Indian Army with her major achievement in successfully providing information of Pakistan’s plan to sink INS Viraat. Hence, she successfully helped in saving this pride of India.

Thanks to Harinder Sikka, writer of the novel “Calling Sehmat” who brought out a story or else this woman’s bravery would have been lost like other patriots of the country.

Alia Bhatt in never before Avtar

Alia Bhatt said in an event, “I think in ‘Raazi’ audience will see me in completely different avtar at least that is my wish because ‘Raazi’ as a film is very different. It’s the first time I am doing a period film and is based on a true story as well, so I am very excited for it and I hope the audience will like it.”

Apart from the number of reasons that makes Raazi a must watch film, we all have one strong reason and that is we’re Indians and patriotism is in our blood. Be it officially or unofficially, the sacrifices and courage of such patriots should never be forgotten. All Sehmat wanted was to unfurl the Indian tricolor at her house. She did it till her death, unofficially, and so we all must do.

‘Shakuntala Devi’ Movie Review: A Warm Depiction Of An Extraordinary Woman

Published

Shakuntala Devi: A Warm Depiction Of An Extraordinary Woman

Warm, emotional, and at times, perhaps a little too sappy, ‘Shakuntala Devi’ is the depiction of an inspirational female role model and extraordinary mathematician who will forever be called ‘The human-computer.’

It also depicts the life of a Shakuntala Devi who was much more than just a gifted mathematician.

The viewers get an insight into the complicated life choices she had to make and the several other roles she’d played in her life- a mother, a wife and most importantly, a woman who was willing to go after what she wanted, irrespective of life’s circumstances.

Vidya Balan’s acting is delightful, and she beautifully depicts the complex titular character. She captures the attention of the viewer in every scene with her larger-than-life screen presence.

Sanya Malhotra, who plays Shakuntala’s daughter, does an equally admirable job.

Anu Menon’s fourth film does a fine job of balancing the ups and downs of the plot, which is told from the perspective of Anupama Banerji, Shakuntala’s daughter. She plays an important role in the film, with her journey being as significant to the storyline as that of her mother.

The first half of the film is mostly light and shows an enthusiastic, confident, and courageous Shakuntala, her various achievements in the field of mathematics and the feat of defeating one of the fastest computers of the day, which earned her the tag she is called to date- The human-computer. Her relationship with her parents is also explored slowly throughout the film.

The second half gets a little more serious and delves into her marriage with IAS officer, Paritosh Banerji, and her tumultuous relationship with their daughter, Anupama.

Certain scenes get a little draggy, like the emotional reconciliations of the mother-daughter duo but the message at the end makes it all worth it.

It addresses beautifully, the completely patriarchal view of a women’s achievements that existed back when a young Shakuntala had just started to harness her gift in the streets of London and continues to exist in a world that will forever mourn her loss.

The film portrays the journey of a woman who learned how to recognize her value and never let any such patriarchal stereotypes stand in the way of what she wanted. It is a fitting depiction of a great mathematician who dedicated her entire life to her passion and love for numbers and whose fundas continue to be taught in schools all over the world.
