Rangan is quite the consummate critic, but either he isn’t a particularly great interviewer or MR is just hard to open up as BR actually complains at one pointso there is often this awkward forced feeling about their conversations especially at the beginning, and Mani Ratnam appears not to have much patience for BR’s “intellectualization” of his movies.
