Mani Ratnam's "Nayakan "is among "Time's" '100 Best Movies Ever'; and his "Roja "launched A.R. Rahman. For the first time ever, Mani Ratnam opens up here, to Baradwaj Rangan, in a series of freewheeling conversations--candid, witty, pensive, and sometimes combative--and looks back at these and nineteen other masterly films. With Rangan's personal and impassioned introduction setting the Tamil and national context of the films, and with posters, script pages and numerous stills, Conversations is a treat for serious lovers of cinema as well as the casual moviegoer looking for a peek behind the process.
