With a dedicated chapter for each of his films, this book is full of honest insights about the filmmaker's craft and process and it leaves you awe-struck in the sense that you realize that after all, Mani Ratnam is the filmmaker who he is only because of his dedication and passion for film making. A great read and a genuine source of inspiration for students of cinema.

If you like Cinema, this is for you !

Amazing insights from Mani Ratnam - The king of contemporary cinema in India. This book is brilliantly written in Q&A style and sequenced from his first movie onwards.
