Travails of a genius - The Hindu. Seven cities fought for Homer dead,Through which, Homer living, begged his bread. Kumbakonam, where he studied, claims him as her son. Residents of Triplicane take pride in the fact that Ramanujan resided there. Yet Ramanujan’s life, whether in Kumbakonam or Madras, was fraught with difficulties. Poverty (while a student in Pachaiappa’s college, he could not afford to buy a cap that cost less than 5.
Ramanujan’s brilliance. Ranganathan, father of library science in India, N. Raghunathan, Ramanujan’s classmate in school and later a professor of mathematics, said that none of the “mathematical higher ups in India correctly gauged the extent and nature of Ramanujan’s capacity.”. Would it be possible to make a commercially successful film on Ramanujan? Srivatsan Nadathur, Sharanyan Nadathur, Sindhu Rajasekaran and Sushanth Desai, founders of Camphor Cinema, think so, and their first production is a film on Ramanujan. Director Gnana Rajasekaran, whom they approached, had three scripts ready, but the one on Ramanujan was their unanimous choice.
Sindhu and Roxanne Derouen from the U. K. The crew is just back from a shoot in Kumbakonam when I meet them, and they’ve had many interesting experiences. A student disappointed at finding it covered, took the blessings of the actor playing the role of Ramanujan!” she elaborates. I am proud to belong to the same town as Ramanujan’.”. Director Rajasekaran has to his credit two popular biopics, one on Bharatiar and the other on Periyar. There are a lot of dramatic elements in the lives of Bharatiar and Periyar, but the world of pure mathematics is far removed from most people. Romancing numbers.
Can mathematics be the point of orientation of a film? It is always lonely at the top, and Ramanujan was at the top of the heap. So how does one make a successful film on one who was romancing numbers? But it is not impossible,” says Rajasekaran. It has life, and it’s only such books that can help a script writer conceive a film. And Ramanujan’s wife, Janaki Ammal, had observed that Ragami’s book painted a vivid picture of life in Ramanujan’s family.”. Details about Janaki’s life in Ramanujan’s family are sketchy.
On September 21, 2013, tens of thousands of Tamils living in Sri Lanka’s heavily-militarised North decisively voted in the long-delayed provincial elections.
So will there be romantic moments in the film? These were among the most challenging portions of the script.”. Abhinay, the grandson of Gemini Ganesan and Savitri, is the hero of the film. Krishnamurthy, who has won four National Awards, is the Art director. He says, “I had to modify the setting in Ramanujan’s house in Kumbakonam, because it is no longer a living house. Every small detail mattered, even the marapaachi bommais, which every Brahmin house had in those days.”. While a genius like Ramanujan may appear once in a century, or perhaps not even that, what would happen to a modern day Ramanujan?
Ramanujan was refused a scholarship in the Kumbakonam college, because he failed in English composition, and things have not changed today. We still have a system that would try to fit a genius into a procrustean bed of conformity. Obviously, all the murders we know of have been discovered, but who knows how many there may be which have never been heard of? In like manner, all the men of genius that we have heard of have triumphed over adverse circumstances, but that is no reason for supposing that there were not innumerable others, who succumbed in youth.”.
Ramanujan became internationally renowned, albeit after many reverses, but who knows how many will, if we continue to provide the most discouraging education system? If after seeing this film, people begin to think about the changes needed in our education system, then Rajasekaran may be said to have achieved his goal in making this film.
