I Told Ya!

A few months back (gosh! is it that long!) i had written a post on fav books. I had mentioned "The Man Who Knew Infinity" as my fav biography and hoped some day some one would make it into a movie. Well it looks like someone heard my prayers. Just read the news that hollywood has latched onto the book and there are not one but two movies on the anvil about Ramanujam. I am kinda sad coz i had hoped that Indian movie industry would make the movie (it might just be a bit too much to expect bollywood to do that !) but then atleast someone is making it!. The next big question is who will play the part of Ramanujam. I cant think of any one in the current indian movie industry who will be able to do that (except may be Amir Khan if he can be made to look that young...but i dont think he will look the part!). I have a crazy suggestion!. How about Dhanush? the teenage tamil hero/villian. He looks the part but exaggerates his acting. May be if he could be made to tone down his acting a bit...Naah i guess ultimately it will be some unknown actor who will get the part..I am really looking forward to this movie!!!

Cheers

I wish too that Bollywood or an Art Film maker from India would make the film. Now we will have to see a white man with a painted face act out Ramanujam's part. Nice to see you blogging again, even if it is to say "I told ya" :))

wts the name of that guy who played an introverted character's role in the tamil film in which he is a physics genius (goes to the board and solves an eq. when his prof. caught him sleeping, which his prof took 2 days to find out), brought up in a horrible place and at the end kills himself. sorry, cant remember the films name and the guys name. :-( i guess he suits best for the role.
