Must Buy

I think this is the finest conversation ever recorded by a film critic and a filmmaker. And very few filmmakers in the world have articulated themselves with such precision. Mani Ratnam does it with no references to any philosophical systems or theoretical positions. There is a certain kind of honesty and sincerity in purpose which Baradwaj Rangan has managed to bring about and that is very important for all aspiring filmmakers to learn from in this book. Few filmmakers acknowledge their own trepidation in the way Mani confesses in his introduction to the book. Even the opponents of Mani will

Wonderful bibliography of Mani Ratnam's work.

Most often, we don't recognize legends during their making. But when they are up there shining like brilliant stars, we go back, revisit their work and say WOW. I said more wows reading about these movies from the creator's viewpoint than when I actually saw those. Such insights. Such details. Mani Ratnam is indeed a legend.

I am not sure if I am more in awe of Maniratnam for his earthly movies or the author Baradwaj Ranjan for bringing out the best from an otherwise reserved director, perfectly balancing between a fan and a critic. Not a biography, 'Conversations with Mani Ratnam' is a bibli

A Good Read for Movie Buffs & Aspiring Film Makers

Bought it immediately when one of my cousins forwarded me the Flipkart link of this book. As always it was a neat delivery from FK and on time.
Calling Mani as my favorite director would be a cliche but still that makes a lot more sense than employing some facilely made-up superlatives. This structure of this book is in an interview format and Bharadwaj Rangan comes with all guns blazing with some intelligent, stupid and sometimes naive questions; and the ever elusive Maniratnam seemed to brace on to them and answer them with equal poise and a pinch of sarcasm at times. In the process, we get

Salute to Mani..

If you are a big fan of Mani and you enjoyed all his movies, you would love this book. And I bet after reading about each movie, you would want to watch the movie again to observe the amount of detail that was actually put in each storyline. I was more fascinated to read about his older movies like Mouna Raagam, Agni Natchatiram and Nayagan than his newer ones (Guru, Raavan..) This book has also changed my point of view on Mani's films. I will for sure watch out for the rain, trains, umbrellas , dress color and appreciate every detail of it. Great book overall.

I BOUGHT IT THE MOVEMENT I SAW IT IN FLIPCART. AS ALWAYS GOOD SPEEDY DELIVERY BY FLIPCART. AS A BIG FAN OF MANI RATNAM SIR ( MAINLY THE FILMS HE DID IN SOUTH INDIAN LANGUAGES ) I WANTED TO KNOW ALL ABOUT HIS FILMS . THE BOOK IS IN THE FORMAT OF VARIOUS INTERVIEWS DONE BY THE AUTHOR . MANI SIR MAINLY JUST ANSWER HIS QUESTIONS. THERE IS NOT MUCH DETAILING ABOUT THE BEHIND THE SCENES OF ALL HIS FILMS. THERE FORE I AM LITTLE DISAPPOINTED BUT STILL LIKE ALL MANI SIR FILMS THIS IS A MUST BUY BOOK IF YOU LIKE IT OR NOT.

Just Started... On the course of completing it...

Throughout my life had been in a hardcore fan of Mani Ratnam... Had watched every movie of his and this book is simply a tribute to the genious of mani ratnam. His vision, his unparalleled knowledge of the past, present and the future of indian cinema is sometimes so capturing that you just run out of options and start loving him!

I bugged my brother to buy this book from Flipkart and he did without any hesitation as he was also a great fan of Mr. Ratnam. All in all a great service by Flipkart!

If you are a Mani Ratnam fan and want to know about this 'person of few words' and for whose film

Master Class!

For someone who has always been in awe of Mr. Mani Ratnam and the films that he has made, this book actually cuts through all the mystique that I had had constructed around this man. 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.
