IndiaGlitz [Friday, March 21, 2014]

It is well known that National award winning director Gnana Rajasekaran who is well known for his biopic films on National poet Subramania Bharathiyar and Social reformist EVR Periyar, is currently shooting a film that traces the life and times of Mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan. When a leading newspaper asked him how he got the inspiration to make a movie on the wizard, the director points to an Oscar award winning Hollywood film Good Will Hunting.

The film included a scene in which Professor Gerald played by actor Stellan Skarsgard asks Dr.Sean Maguire played by Robin Williams, whether he has ever heard about a man named Ramanujam. Gnana Raja Sekaran says he was flabbergasted to hear from his daughter that the name of the Indian genius was mentioned in a Hollywood film. Though the fame of Ramanujam has travelled that far precious little is known about the genius in his home country and that lead to his decision of making a film on his life and achievements.

Gnana Rajasekaran who has proved his expertise in making films based on the lives of eminent personalities says the job was tougher this time. This is because the mathematical genius of Ramanujam was beyond the scope of even those who are well educated in mathematics. However the challenging task has ended in a satisfying product, the director has said.

Abhinay, the grandson of late actor couple Gemini Ganesan and Savithri is debuting with this film to play the lead role of Ramanujam. Suhasini Maniratnam and Nizhalgal Ravi act as his patents. Famous Malayalam and Kannada actress Bhama is acting as the wife of Ramanujam.

he ensemble of supporting cast includes senior actors like Y.Gee.Mahendra, Delhi Ganesh. Manobala, Sarathbabu. Kitty, Krishnamoorthu and Abbas. Famous English actor Kevin McGowan is acting as V.H. Hardy who recognized the inborn talent of Ramanujam and made him popular across the world.
