New Delhi, Dec 23 (IANS) "Theory of Everything", a biopic on theoretical physicist professor Stephen Hawking, will hit Indian screens Feb 6, 2015.
Universal Pictures International India will release the Golden Globe nominated film across Indian theatres, said a statement.
Starring Eddie Redmayne as Hawking and Felicity Jones, the movie has received four Golden Globe nominations, including those for Best Motion Picture - Drama, Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama, Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama, and the Best Original Score - Motion Picture.
"The Theory of Everything" begins in the 1960s where Cambridge University student Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) falls in love with fellow collegian Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones).
At 21, Hawking learns that he has motor neuron disease. Despite this -- and with Jane at his side -- he begins an ambitious study of time, of which he has very little left, according to his doctor. He and Jane defy terrible odds and break new ground in the fields of medicine and science, achieving more than either could hope to imagine.
According to Redmayne, the Golden Globe nomination he received for the impeccable portrayal of Hawking did not come easy.
"It was the most challenging thing I've ever done," Redmayne said.
