How Mani Ratnam plays Guru.

"If you have ever wondered what kind of a guru Mani Ratnam is, here goes. He takes his assisstant to a theatre and frame by frame analyses it, telling you why a particular shot is ineffective or where the actor's body language has failed to deliver what the director wanted. Clean, clinical and incisive lessons in film making. Of course, he also does not suffer fools gladly. Forget to ensure continuity at your own peril, be it the same pair of glasses or the sheet of paper with the corner frayed just a fraction of an inch. Hmm, still want the dream job?"

Trivia on Karthi from Bhama Devi Ravi

"Suriya's sibling apparently took off to New York, to do an MS in Industrial Engineering from Binghamtn University, once elder brother made it big in films. Reason? Shattered dreams. Seems the family had always known that if it's cinema it would be Karthi, not the other way around as it happened. But Kollywood was his true calling, and he came back, joined up with Mani Ratnam (ayudha ezhuthu and Yuva) before Ameer came up with the story. Source? Dad Siva Kumar mentioned it to me yesterday (Feb 28) at Four Frames. I was waiting for Departed to start, he to welcome Rajni, Lata, Soundarya and Aishwarya for a spl screening of Paruthi veeran."

Thanks Bhama, for contributing this trivia. Keep them coming.
