The dvd: The Man Who Knew Infinity

If you like movies that start with a bang, then this movie is not for you. This is a biography based on a book with the same title. It is about a poor Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel), who loves numbers and is so good at solving Mathematical equations of all kinds without ever thinking of using a calculator. The guy can solve an equation with infinity numbers!
He has written books with various Mathematics equations that he wants to publish. But he just cannot find someone who is interested enough to help him get published. His turning point happens when he writes a letter to a famous Mathematician, Hardy (Jeremy Irons), who invites him to Cambridge University. This means leaving his wife for an unknown period of time. In a bitter sweet farewell, he sets off from his home town, a new man; with short hair wearing a suit and clad in formal shoes all for the first time.
At the university, it turns out getting published will not be as easy as he thought. First, he is forced to enroll as a student. Trouble starts with the fact that professors do not like him because he knows all the answers and solves equations using solutions they haven’t even thought of. Ramanujan is too good a Mathematician to be true, all professors do not want to second his publishing because he is better than each of them and yet he is a poor Indian without an education or any form of civilisation. But as his health fails him, he begins to fear that he will die with all his knowledge unpublished. This movie will require your undivided attention and you will find that it is worth it.
