Mani Ratnam is an Indian film director, screenwriter and producer, who is well known for his work in Tamil cinema, based in Chennai, India. He entered the film industry through Pallavi Anu Pallavi, a Kannada film in 1983. The film fetched the Karnataka State Film Award for Best Screenplay for Ratnam. This was followed by a series of unsuccessful films such as Unaru (Malayalam) and Pagal Nilavu (Tamil). However, it was after Mouna Ragam (1986) Ratnam established himself as a prominent film-maker in the Tamil film industry. The film earned him a National Film Award and a Filmfare Award for Best Tamil Director. Nayagan released in 1987 was dubbed as critics as India's answer to The Godfather. It won three National Film Awards at the 35th National Film Awards, further elevating his status. His next film Agni Natchathiram was commercially successful and won two awards each at the Filmfare Awards South and Tamil Nadu State Film Award ceremonies. In 1989 he made his Telugu language debut with Geethanjali which received the Golden Lotus Award for Best Popular Film and a Nandi Award to his credit. His "Terrorism trilogy" consisting of Roja (1992), Bombay (1995) and Dil Se.. (1998) were highly acclaimed and won numerous awards in India and film festivals abroad. Nayagan and Anjali (1990) were India's official entry for Oscars in the Best Foreign Language Film category.[1] His Tamil film Nayagan along with Satyajit Ray's The Apu Trilogy and Guru Dutt's Pyaasa are the only Indian films to have appeared in Time magazine's All-Time 100 Greatest Movies.[2][3]

The Government of India honoured Ratnam with the Padma Shri in 2002. Films like Roja, Bombay, Iruvar, Dil Se.. and Kannathil Muthamittal have been screened at many film festivals and fetched him international acclaim.[4]

As of 2013, Ratnam has won six National Film Awards, three Filmfare Awards and five Filmfare Awards South and numerous awards at various film festivals across the world.
