‘The Man who knew Infinity’ to release on 29 April
MUMBAI: ‘The Man who knew Infinity’, a film based on a book by Robert Kanigel, is set to release on 29 April in English and Tamil.
The story revolves around the life of ace mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan and the struggles he had to face to prove his merit.
Written and directed by Matthew Brown, ‘The Man who knew Infinity’ is the true story of friendship that forever changed mathematics. In 1913, Ramanujan (played by Dev Patel), a self-taught Indian mathematics genius, traveled to Trinity College, Cambridge, where he forged a bond with his mentor, the eccentric professor GH Hardy (played by Jeremy Irons).
Ramanujan was an Indian mathematician who, with almost no formal training in pure mathematics, made extraordinary contributions to mathematical analysis, number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions.
Living in India with no access to the larger mathematical community, which was centered in Europe at the time, Ramanujan developed his own mathematical research in isolation. As a result, he rediscovered known theorems in addition to producing new work.
