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?" Insider trivia from Bhama Devi Ravi.
