With this theme, here talking about the 2015 biographical film ‘The Man Who Knew Infinity’ based on the true story of Indian Mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan. This film being a biopic, there’s nothing more to talk about it in cinematic terms, as it has an unflawed storyline which is based on a book.
