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.
