You should not miss this for heavens sake (by borkarsaish)
I saw this movie at the International Film Festival Of India IFFI , Goa. Most anticipated film which I felt got over in no time. So beautifully directed, enthralling from the very first cut. This is so far the finest performance by Dev Patel. Without Jeremy Irons this film would have been toothless, seeing him for the first time I have never seen a character executed with such panache. Overall a film cannot get better than this, there are some flaws which every film has but are forgivable and probably intended to show the audience that way. Not a film to watch for the entertainment value <more>
only but solely for the essence of film watching. A standing ovation to Matthew Brown.
This is a wonderful movie which I hope will have a great success when it is released in the USA. I saw it at the Sun Valley Film Festival in March 2016 and it was by far the best movie I have ever seen in this festival. The story of this young Indian with a special gift for mathematics and who becomes a researcher at Cambridge Trinity college is by itself fascinating. The acting is superb with Jeremy Irons as a professor and mentor in one of his best performance ever. The film makes you feel the spirit of the place and the time first world war England . Dev Patel is no longer the fun host of <more>
the Marigold Hotel but a great courageous young mathematician who beats old odds to become one of the major scientist of the 20th century. Please tell your friend to go and see this movie. They will thank you.
Outstanding script and acting (by alpeshpatel-77898)
An important film; cleverly mixing a love story with the equally deep themes of moral obligations on privilege to raise those without. At first I was concerned I would not be able to disassociate Dev Patel from the role on Marigold Hotel, but after a few lines which sounded too contemporary, he improved significantly. Jeremy Irons was captivating and the other roles adequately developed. The direction, pace, setting, wardrobe, story, score -all hold the attention.When I watched it, at the end, the audience applauded. In fact at the end of it, one wishes it could last longer - craving more.
Man's recognition of a true genius and his untimely demise is the ultimate human tragedy (by organicsocial)
Ramanujan is a name like Beethoven or Picaso. You don't need to know their history. You don't need to know about their life. Their work speaks for them. While common people try to review and measure what they see, geniuses imagine completely new things that could exist. The Man Who Knew Infinity is just a movie based on a book based on the life of a genius. How can we even expect it to tell us all that is there to know about him? Still, it does its job fairly and with sincerity. The striking difference between this movie and A Beautiful Mind, another biopic about a mathematical <more>
genius, is that of the tone. Sure, the portrayal of a genius struggling with schizophrenia makes for a more compelling story but is by no means tragic. How an unlikely partnership slowly turns into a mutual respect and finally into a meaningful yet short-lived friendship is at the core of the Ramanujan-Hardy story. As Hardy addresses his interactions with Ramanujan akin to a romantic affair, he encapsulates their common passion for maths and their devotion to the craft. It was a rare symphony of two souls that happens once in ages. The profundity of that is realised when one feels the pain of Hardy in coming to terms with the fact that he'll never see Ramanujan again. For that matter both Dev Patel's and Jeremy Iron's acting are utterly spellbinding. In that regard, this movie is filled with great performers and they all do their part very satisfyingly. It is like watching good theatre.The seemingly unnecessary struggles of a capable man can be seen as a reality check. It is almost brutal to watch our hero suffer because of some petty issues that simply grow big because of either personal inhibitions or neglect. Case in point, Ramanujan's deteriorating health. There are always worldly limitations that tend to plague the best of us. Moreover, Ramanujan lived in troubled times. He was poor and being an autodidact didn't help his cause either. Ramanujan was an exceptional man surrounded by ordinary people who did deeply care for him but hardly understood him. Hardy was probably the only one who came close to appreciating him but had no experience in dealing with such a cultural disparity. The movie doesn't try to gloss over these circumstances. These are some of the things in this period drama that set it apart. I hope the generation that seeks to alter the truth for excitement rather than get bored by the depth of emotion can fathom that.

Can't wait to watch the movie. can someone provide me the release dates.
This is based upon true eventsIn 1910, G.H. Hardy Jeremy Irons takes on a brilliant mathematician in S. Ramanujan Dev Patel although he has no formal degree that will be accepted by the British. Ramanujan leaves his family in India, doesn't know his family is keeping his wife Janaki Devika Bhise away from him, and becomes sickly. The movie shows that the main purpose of Ramanujan was to have his calculations published although he self-taught himself mathematics. We have read stories and seen movies of truly great men and now we are learning about S. Ramanujan Rama-knew-Gin who to <more>
this day is being studied with seriousness. Hardy is always upset that Ramanujan doesn't provide proofs of his theorems. Ramanujan couldn't be bothered mostly because paper - when he was growing up - was very scarce so he knew his calculations were correct and just went to the end. Now mathematicians are seriously studying Ramanujan and are finding out how correct he was. At the end of the movie we see a statement regarding a lost notebook now on display at Trinity College in Cambridge of his in which he shows calculations proving the existence of Black Holes well before the world knew anything about Black Holes. Hardy, a master mathematician himself, was always in awe of where and how Ramanujan got his calculations and later Ramanujan explains that "an equation has no meaning to me unless it expresses a thought of God." Ramanujan was very religious and believed he was guided by his family goddess Mahalakshmi of Namakka. Hardy was an Atheist, but Ramanujan tells him, "No, you do believe in God, but you think he doesn't like you"To be sure we do see a lot of discrimination regarding Ramanujan at Trinity College as most math minds there didn't like to be shown up by someone from India. The movie is quite slow and that is to be expected, but the acting performances throughout are exceptional and we just loved it when Ramanujan proves something that all others thought couldn't be done. It was like watching a magic show and being in total awe. Both Dev Patel and Jeremy Irons are to be congratulated for their performances. Kudos.Notables: Toby Jones as Prof Littlewood and some said he was just a figment of Hardy's imagination; and Jeremy Northam as Bertrand Russell.Go to Wikipedia to learn more about S. Ramanujan. You will be amazed again. This is a great story and we are grateful for those who bring these stories to light. 9/10 Violence: Kind of when Ramanujan gets beaten up. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Language: No.
Just saw this film at the SF Film Festival. I thought it was excellent. Why? It combines various levels of entertainment: the intellectual mathematics involved and the realities of academic competition; the historical and cultural conflicts between Indian and English traditions, attitudes, biases, and beliefs; the emotional love/friendship between men, between men and women, and between children and parents; and inhumanity towards other humans: warmongers vs. pacifists, religious vs. non-religious, individuals vs. groups, misunderstandings and lack of emotional intelligence in so many ways. I <more>
comprehended very little of the mathematics involved but that did not matter and did not change my overall appreciation for the story and all the levels involved. Kudos to all who created this film. The writing, the acting, the cinematography, the direction, all excellent...
Just saw "The Man Who Knew Infinity" at The Sun Valley Film Festival. So happy to see quality films make their US premiere in Sun Valley. Kudos to the non profit group. Must see movie with outstanding story, production and casting led by J. Irons. Independent films like these deserve to be seen & noticed. Opens NY/LA late April. Superb direction from Matt Brown with incredible sets and locations, especially location at Trinity College. Thought about the diversity issue facing the Academy and after seeing this movie, realized it was an issue for a brilliant mind like the lead <more>
against the English back in the day. The effort it took to make this film on a tight budget with incredible locations is a credit to the entire crew!
This is such a touching tribute to this amazing, brilliant man of humble beginnings. First off, there were a few moments in the film that dragged a little bit. I would have also preferred a little more development of some of the characters, however, it did not take away from my appreciation and enjoyment of this film. There is an underlying message to this story, and whether you're a man of science or metaphysics or spirituality, you will find satisfaction! Patel and Irons did a splendid job in this film. Patel is easily becoming a favorite of mine--he has that subtle intensity that is so <more>
mesmerizing and engaging. Irons, well, he is a seasoned actor and one of my all-time favorites. In his role here, he is very believable, showing emotion where it is needed, never overacting, always giving justice to his character. This film will make you laugh, it will break your heart, it will make your spirit soar, and if you have no math inclinations, it will inspire you and make you appreciate its beauty, its usefulness and contribution to the world of mathematics as we know it today!
