Movie on Maths genious almost ready

Camphor Cinema along with the cast / crew of the English-Tamil Biopic Ramanujan remembered the mathematical genius on his 126th Birthday, on 22 December.

With no formal training in pure mathematics, Srinivasa Ramanujan made significant and extraordinary contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions. Proud to be making a film on the unsung hero, director Gnana Rajasekaran says, ‘Ramanujan’s skills in mathematics were stupendous since he was a young boy, but instead of being celebrated for his talent, he suffered due to lack of recognition by society and academia.

He carried his skill like a cross throughout his life. That is what pushed me to make a movie about him. Ramanujan’s life is relevant to society today: how do we treat our geniuses, do we understand them or push them to madness, poverty and suffering?…

These are the questions Ramanujan’s life answers.Its an honour to have made a film on the math genius’
