Anybody familiar with Indian cinema has heard of Mani Ratnam and his groundbreaking films. He is considered to be one of the finest filmmakers of India and has achieved success and recognition both nationally as well as internationally. His films have been and still are extremely popular and always convey a significant message to the audience. Conversations With Mani Ratnam is a one of a kind book, as it reveals the filmmaker to the general crowd, for the first time perhaps, in a candid interview. Mani Ratnam has directed numerous movies, especially in Tamil. In fact, he is considered to be solely responsible for bringing Tamil cinema into a national front by introducing his films to audiences around the country. His technique of releasing his movies in both the Hindi and Tamil languages has not only gained him more popularity but has also served the purpose of combining audiences all over the nation in their appreciation of quality cinema.
