The story of Ramanujan is fascinating and inspiring, but unfortunately the movie has not presented it well.
Though most of the important biographic details were there, I have not felt connected to or touched by the story. Some scenes felt kind of forced or disconnected from the story (most of the India ones) and others felt too rushed, so they didn't succeed to build the desired feeling.
And of course the rushed ending that was merely presented as a plain text, like we are in wikipedia instead of a movie!
I probably would give it a point less if I could forget for a minute from the historical story and examine the movie by itself.

Movies and stories about people who made great contributes to the world always makes me feel like I'm in a room full of onions cutting ninjas.

It tells the story of Srinivasa Ramanujan, an Indian mathematician who made important contributions to the world of mathematics as the theory of numbers

Solid 6.5/10 (rounded to 7)

I probably wouldn't have cast Dev Patel in that role, but it's not as if I can name another Indian actor I'd rather see in it. There just aren't enough of them in Hollywood. It's frustrating.

The film's dramatic arc feels a little too formulaic, leading me to question the precise order of events in the final act, but overall it's a good watch. Just felt like the script could have gone a bit farther in depth on some areas.

Love Dev Patel in this movie. What an interesting movie - to consider the mystical and aesthetically aspects of math. I appreciated that it could tell the story without trying to explain the math. the relationship between Ramanujan and his wife was a lovely sub-melody. I hope we ge to see more of Devika Bhisa. I give the movie an 8 (great) out of 10

A quiet film about an exceptional man. The mathematics in the film eluded my simple mind, but as a story of an outcast in a world of pomposity I can relate well.

I expected a litte bit more out of it. Still the end is emotionally very powerful and this is a movie well worth the time spent watching.

If you like math, the magic behind pure science and history, you'll surely love this rare movie in an era dominated by superheroes and franchise movies.

Great biopic about a great mathematician. These are hard subjects but the film manages to explain them and make you care.

Surprisingly deeply felt brilliance and heartfelt in a hard-to-describe way.
