Storyline

'Ramanujan' is a historical biopic set in early 20th century British India and England, and revolves around the life and times of the mathematical prodigy, Srinivasa Ramanujan. Directed by the award-winning filmmaker Gnana Rajasekaran and with an international cast and crew, 'Ramanujan' is a cross-border venture. Considered one of the most romantic stories in the history of mathematics, Ramanujan, a college dropout from a poor family in South India, made extraordinary mathematical discoveries in isolation. He wrote a strange letter filled with theorems and formulas to Prof. Hardy of Trinity College, Cambridge, who immediately identified his genius and invited him to England to conduct further research. 'Ramanujan' chronicles the genius' journey across continents and cultures in search of recognition.

A good attempt on the life of Ramanujan which could've been a cult classic
19 February 2015 | by naveensankaran18See all my reviews

The acting of lead actors are laudable but its the screenplay which is lagging. Many parts of the movie is not chained well which actually creates some confusion. It all lies in how a story is presented on screen. Only in this part, did the director fails but succeeds in bringing the much needed biopic on the genius child of mathematics - Srinivasan Ramanujan.

It is a very good attempt and must watch for all those who wish to know about this genius from Kumbakonam.

Music is a great plus in this movie. No unwanted stuffs are delivered.

Great journey to say! Although flawed, it looks beautiful!
