Set in 1913 colonial India, the improbable true story of a unique genius whose pivotal theories propelled him from obscurity into a world in the midst of war, and how he fought tirelessly to show the world the genius of his mind.
Upon writing a letter to professor GH Hardy of Trinity College in Cambridge, Srinavasa Ramanujan is leaving his family, country, and new bride, to pursue his passion and prove himself in a world of prejudice.
Self-taught Indian mathematical genius, Ramanujan forms an unbreakable bond and improbable friendship with the prestigious professor Hardy, of Trinity College Cambridge who is astonished at his raw talent and unconventional methods. Excelling expectations, despite personal struggles, Ramanujan is revolutionising the practice of maths under Hardy’s guidance. Hardy must now fight to gain Ramanujan the recognition and respect he deserves, which is no easy task in the traditional culture/backdrop of Cambridge.
We are led through this unique individual’s dignified journey to fulfilling his passion and proving to the world the genius of his mind.
