Mani Ratnam: OK Kanmani and Matters of the Heart, A Masterclass By Baradwaj Rangan

The first name that comes to mind when one thinks of modern Tamil romance is Mani Ratnam. With films like Alaipayuthey, Bombay, Roja, Mouna Ragam and more, he has built a reputation for himself in the genre. However, it’s his 2015 hit O Kadhal Kanmani that was loved across the world and even with non-native speakers. But why does it really work? Was it the freshness of Dulquer and Nithya Menen’s pairing? The music? The cinematography?

Or is it just something we’d like to call the Mani Ratnam magic?

Baradwaj Rangan, tries to break down how Mani Ratnam so accurately and delicately approaches matters of the heart in a way that very few do.

Catch the session live on FC Front Row, in association with Mubi on 19th April at 6pm.
