Maniratnam

Book name-Maniratnam
Author-Bharadwaj Rangan

This is the biography of Maniratnam,one of the greatest directors India has seen.This book is a combination of questions(Bharadwaj Rangan's) with responses(Maniratnam's) in the chronological order of his films.

Anybody who has interest in the art of film making and curious to know the director's point of view in films would find this book really informative.His path breaking films like Mounaraagam,Iruvar,Bombay,Roja all has been described in great detail.After reading this book,Ifelt that Maniratnam is a director who is really concerned even about the minute aspects of film making. I really loved this book.
