SendhilRamamurthy.net sees Brahmin Bulls

This past weekend I had the opportunity to see Brahmin Bulls at the Chicago South Asian Film Festival with a complimentary pass from Sendhil. As a long time biased Sendhil fan and owner of this website, I can honestly tell you that Brahmin Bulls is truly Sendhil’s finest work to date. I am so thrilled to announce that the film will be showing in 20 cities nationwide on November 14th and will be released on Video on Demand in early 2015.

I’ve known about this project for several years and was able to speak to Sendhil a few times about the project, as well as his involvement in it. Every conversation and interview heightened my excitement, especially when I heard comments such as “Sid is the most fully formed of all the roles I have played” from Sendhil and “This is a great role for Sendhil” from the film’s director Mahesh Pailoor.

None of these observations could have prepared me for the exceptionally powerful performances by Sendhil as Sid Sharma, Roshan Seth as Sid’s father Ashok Sharma, and supporting performances by Cassidy Freeman and Mary Steenburgen.

At the heart of this film are two parallel storylines of Sid and Ashok that intersect several times through the tale of an estranged family, disappointment and regret, and finally acceptance with the promise of moving forward.

I won’t spoil this film since many have yet to see it, but the depth of Sid’s depression and the rut he’s been in for so long is seen most potently in silent scenes of Sid alone. These dialogue-free scenes show a side of Sendhil that viewers have not previously seen in his work. Sid Sharma is a man who is deeply stuck, intensely unhappy, and a bit lost and in those moments of stillness. The audience can see all of the heartbreak, all of the disappointment, and all of Sid’s regrets through a silent performance in Sendhil’s eyes. 

On the other hand, Roshan Seth’s Ashok Sharma at first seems like a standard film widow. A man who is seemingly ambivalent with his work and his loneliness at home almost painful to watch as his duty of watering the plants plays out in the silent house he lives in. But when Ashok’s story plays out over the course of the film, there is hope, desire for connections and a sweet love story (with a cat… long story).

When the two characters are together, years of history and miscommunication, of disappointment and missed opportunities, come to the surface as Sid and Ashok find their way around each other again. 

I implore you to see this film if it plays in your city (and we will let you know where it will be released when we are able) and to watch it when it’s released on VOD next year.

The Chicago South Asian Film Festival kicks off Thursday, September 18 and the AMp invited Deepti D’Cunha, the international film curator and Shalini Trivedi, a festival director, to get the scoop on the best films to catch. Luis Antonio Perez filled in for Brian Babylon today and Molly Adams was glad because Luis is not afraid to indulge a little fawning over a hot dude like Sendhil Ramamurthy.

Open Beast Interview with Sendhil Ramamurthy

Hey SendhilFans,

Check out this awesome new interview with Sendhil from the folks at OpenBeast! 

Sendhil Ramamurthy is a versatile American actor, portraying the role of Gabriel Lowen in The CW sci-fi romance series Beauty & the Beast. Also most recognizable from NBC’s Heroes as geneticist Mohinder Suresh and from USA Network’s Covert Affairs as Jai Wilcox, Sendhil has parlayed his exposure with a leading role in Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K.’s Shor in the City and as well as an appearance in 2012 as Raj, the boyfriend of Mindy Kaling’s Kelly Kapoor on NBC’s The Office. His film work includes Love and Debate, Blind Dating and cult favorite The Slammin’ Salmon. Sendhil was with Liz Garcia’s film The Lifeguard where he co-stars with Kristen Bell, Martin Starr, Amy Madigan, and Mamie Gummer. He is married to actress Olga Sosnovska, perhaps best known in the US for her role as Polish businesswoman Lena Kundera on the soap opera All My Children.

Welcome to OpenBeas.com. How did “Beauty and the Beast” happen?

Sherri Cooper and Jen Levin called up and offered me the role. I hadn’t seen the show so they sent me a few eps and then I signed on.

Any Bollywood plans?

I am in the middle of shooting a movie right now called A Momentary Lapse of Reason with Kunal Naayar (Big Bang Theory). We play brothers. I just got back from India, then we continue shooting in L.A. in a few months. It’s not a Bollywood movie per se. No singing or dancing, but we did shoot in India (Hyderabad). Does that count (smiles)?

What would you consider as your one best gig or achievement thus far?

I think the thing I am most proud of so far is an Indie film, I produced and star in called Brahmin Bulls. We are finishing up the festival run of the film now and will be releasing the film later this year in theaters and then VOD.

Given a choice London, Toronto or LA, which would be your home preference and why?

London. I just love the energy of that city and I have a lot of friends there that I miss seeing on a daily basis. I went to drama school in London and lived and worked there for six years. There’s so much to do in London and I love going to the theatre in London. I hope to go back and do a play there soon.

What are your leisure time activities?

I spend the little leisure time I have by playing tennis. I am obsessed with tennis. Been loving the US Open this year.

Thank you.
