Sounding Off

Sub title: The Memoirs of an Oscar-winning Sound Designer

Author: Resul Pookutty, Baiju Natarajan

Resul Pookutty, India’s best-known sound designer and audiographer, won an Oscar for his work in Danny Boyle’s highly successful film Slumdog Millionaire.

Sounding Off, his autobiography, is the amazing odyssey of a village boy from Kerala whose resilience and conviction took him to the very cutting edge of cinematic sound technology—from struggling in the ruthless film world of Mumbai to winning international glory and becoming one of the biggest off-screen stars of Indian cinema. By turns dramatic and inspiring, Resul’s remarkable journey is a celebration of both cinema and life. Already a huge bestseller in Malayalam, this definitive translation is bound to delight not only cinema lovers, but anyone who loves a story well told.

Book Reviews

• ‘Any profession can only excel with passionate people redefining it again and again—they bring respect to their art and change the way the world looks at it. I respect Resul for that. He has reinvented the syntax of sound design through his worldwide success and immeasurable contribution to film! This heartfelt memoir brilliantly describes Resul’s exemplary journey’—A.R Rahman

• ‘Trying to get sync sound on the teeming streets of Mumbai is a lunatic ambition. But Resul Pookutty somehow does it and he became my touchstone during the making of Slumdog Millionaire. In Sounding Off, Resul narrates the story of his incredible life’—Danny Boyle
