The makers have unveiled the new song, Paheli, and it seems to be an ode to all the mothers in the world and how they will go the extra mile to be the best mothers in the world. The song begins with Shakuntala Devi declaring that she would be the best mother ever, and then we see montages of her tender and endearing relationship with her daughter.

The film revolves around the life of Shakuntala Devi, how she proved to be a genius, being hailed as the 'Human Computer', and also dealing with some family issues. The film is all set to stream on Amazon Prime Video India from July 31 onwards and promises to be high on both entertainment and emotions. It would be fun to watch Balan as Shakuntala Devi solving complex equations in micro-seconds.
