Book Review: Conversations with Mani Ratnam is a wonderful read
Baradwaj Rangan’s book is a masterclass on filmmaking and storytelling by India’s maverick movie maker Mani Ratnam
Nasreen Munni Kabir’s conversations with music genius AR Rahman in her book A.R. Rahman: The Spirit of Music were lighthearted and made the ace music-man’s struggle and success seem easier than it was. In journalist Baradwaj Rangan’s Conversations with Mani Ratnam, the more intense chats with the director seem casual and mundane at times, but are enlightening and interesting.

Happy Birthday, Abhishek Bachchan!
Abhishek, who turns a year older, hopes for better luck at the box office in 2012
Abhishek Bachchan turns 36 today. And guess what he’s got on his wish list? To act in a film made on an environmental issue! Abhishek was recently awarded the Green Globe Award for his contribution to creating environmental awareness. The actor recently gave up his Bentley for a greener environment. And now is waiting for the arrival of electric cars. The year 2011 was a milestone for Abhi as far as his personal life goes. It brought Beti B into his life.

Abhishek Bachchan in Mani Ratnam’s next?
Cineswami tells you more, also throwing light on Peepli Live director Anusha Rizvi’s next based on Amitav Ghosh’s book Sea of Poppies
While the world was getting its collective knickers in a twist about Amitabh Bachchan’s health, his son made a quiet trip to Chennai and back. The reason wasn’t to stock up on idlis, dosas and pongal or even Dindgul biryanis, but to catch up with the man who made him act decently twice and once went horribly wrong – Mani Ratnam. The director had extracted decent performances from Aby’s baby in Yuva and Guru, but failed spectacularly with Raavan. The visit was an official one, beginning with talks at Mani’s plush office, followed by lunch at his home. Abhishek then made his way over to AR Rahman’s place to pay his respects.
