I found some persons are still reluctunt to accept rahman as the best indian musician of all time.He is is excellent from the begning itself.He is excellent in all musical departments.But his melody makes him the king of music.Just excellent like bethoven.I Pray allah to give him more strenth to open new doors of music and to fly in the wings of melody.
"In Hollywood, most well known films have over the years become almost instantly recognisable by their themes. Hopefully, Bose will set a trend for themes in our films rather than the song and dance routine that is so much part and parcel of our movies." I wholeheartedly commend AR Rehman for his brilliant score for BOSE - but I beg to differ that Bose will set a trend for themes in our films - because, a genius by the name Ilaiyaraaja had already set the trend way back in the late 1970s, into the 1980s, through the 1990s and continues to do so even now - when it comes to theme tracks, Maestro.Ilaiyaraaja is the John Williams of India - his only disadvantage is that, his scores (all of which are way ahead of his times), came in regional cinema, hence went unrecognised - but that need not take away the undeniable fact that Dr.Ilaiyaraaja's thematic scores for movies like HEY RAM (a tribute to Wagnerian spirit), LAJJA, GEETANJALI (its title theme is the most evocative theme ever scored for an Indian film - ask Mr.Mani Ratnam who directed that movie, he will tell you),Mouna Ragam, Anjali, Nayagan and scores of other movies, have been on par with the best in Hollywood
a.r.rahman is yet again sorry asusual did the better of his music azadhi......ekla chalo........zikr.....new elements from him. ksina became hit only using rahman name how my friend ismail how did u forgotted it......waiting for his next project may be in tamil
Rahman has again provided some wonderful, imaginative music. The theme song Azadi is a wonderful blend of western and Indian style. The instrumentals are also capture imagination. Thumps up for Rahman.
Call me cynical, but I don't think there exist a single Indian diretor or producer capable or willing to making a "real" film, either it's over dramatic or too melodramatic or a host of other reasons... Can you imagine what it would have looked like if an Indian producer had made "gandhi" - maybe it would have been the same as "Asoka" et al.
