Plot Summary

In the 1910s, Srinivasa Ramanujan is a man of boundless intelligence that even the abject poverty of his home in Madras, India, cannot crush. Eventually, his stellar intelligence in mathematics and his boundless confidence in both attract the attention of the noted British mathematics professor, G.H. Hardy, who invites him to further develop his computations at Trinity College at Cambridge. Forced to leave his young wife, Janaki, behind, Ramanujan finds himself in a land where both his largely intuitive mathematical theories and his cultural values run headlong into both the stringent academic requirements of his school and mentor and the prejudiced realities of a Britain heading into World War One. Facing this with a family back home determined to keep him from his wife and his own declining health, Ramanujan joins with Hardy in a mutual struggle that would define Ramanujan as one of India's greatest modern scholars who broke more than one barrier in his worlds.

Trivia Ramanujan died in 1920 at the age of 32. His wife Janaki died in 1994 at the age of 95. As was the custom she never remarried after his death. See more »
Goofs Ramanujan was shown as a young man, much younger than both Hardy and Littlewood. In fact, the age difference is only 10 and 2 years between Ramanujan and Hardy and Littlewood respectively (Ramanujan was born 1887, Hardy 1877 and Littlewood 1885). See more »
