A man's tryst with Genius

The movie is about a Cambridge Mathematics Scholar G.H. Hardy's experience with the genius of S. Ramanujan, a self taught Indian Mathematician, who without any formal training went on to unravel complex theories of mathematics. The viewers get a glimpse of Ramanujan's background in colonial India where living in abject poverty, he is absolved in deriving answers to complex mathematical questions. In his town, he finds no one to understand his work and to earn a living starts working as an accounting clerk. As a stoke of luck, he gets guided to write a letter to a Cambridge scholar G.H. Hardy with his discoveries and G.H. Hardy gets responded back. Thus starts the story of a partnership between Hardy and Ramanujan, where Hardy puts trust in Ramanujan and arranges for his travel and stay in Cambridge. It is a story of Hardy's partnership with Ramanujan and the opposition that he faces for his decision. Hardy's attempt to understand Ramanujan's genius and trying to help him project himself better to be accepted by the academic world forms the crux of the story. The movie is an adaptation of a 1991 book of the same name and serves less as a biopic on Ramanujan, rather focusing on Hardy's tryst with the genius. The movie beautifully develops the character of Hardy as a reserved man with very few friends and no family, with mathematics as the only driving factor in his life. Hardy's care and concern for Ramanujan, makes him experience the human side within himself where many a times he is at a loss of words or gestures to convey his emotions, but is understood and appreciated by Ramanujan none the less. It is the story of his tryst with a genius that made him experience life from a different perspective.

Very emotional movie

Movie is Very heart touching. I cried a lot especially at last part. Worth watching. Very glad to know a less known man but a great human being as well as a great mathematician. Salute to a Brilliant mathematician who couldn't get recognition of world at large but in field of mathematics, his contribution is duly recognized today.

living on inspiration

It's the early 20th century. Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel) is an Indian with no higher learning degrees. He struggles to get his math papers published. He leaves behind his disbelieving mother and loving wife for Cambridge. British mathematics professor G.H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons) mentors him but often dismisses his intuitive leaps for more rigorous proofs. Being homesick and suffering actual sickness, he struggles against the entrenched establishment and outright prejudice as WWI engulfs the world.

It's a tale of inspiration but there isn't much drama in its telling. It is utterly conventional without tension. Patel and Irons do yeoman's work bringing life to these real people. There is simply no whiz bang flash to liven up the story. There is no end goal. Almost everything is done with unyielding conventionality. A little flash from Ramanujan is the biggest emotional lift. Otherwise, it remains mostly flat and predictable.
