Director Mani Ratnam

Mani Ratnam, both the words mean two types of Precious Stones in Tamil. And of course, he really is!!! The name Mani Ratnam needs no introduction. He has revolutionised the Tamil Film Industry, the Indian Film Industry in general with technically strong films that are beautifully photographed, excellent music, a tremendous script based on stories which are very close to reality (Nayagan, Roja, Bombay, Kannathil Muthamittal, Aayitha Ezhuthu, Yuva, Guru). Every frame in a Mani Ratnam film is perfectly composed and beautifully backlit even if this style involves total violation of tonal, focal and colour continuity. He is the pride of the entire nation and an idol for many filmmakers. But if you  happen to be one, still among the few unfortunate souls, then read on.
So folks, here is PadmaSri Mani Ratnam for you.
