No opening song for Rajni in Sivaji
Tuesday September 5 2006 12:04 IST

'You will not find the usual Rajni opening song in Sivaji, where he will advise his fans on how to live ,'' says AR Rahman. Instead, the ace music director says he has come up with five rollicking numbers, which are out and out entertainers.

Rahman is awestruck with the picturisation of two of the songs in the film, of which he had a sneak preview with director Shankar.

''They are simply amazing,'' he confesses. After the stupendous success of Rang de Basanti, everyone's expectations of Rahman have gone up, have they not? Rahman gives his trademark laugh. ''The minute you say Rajni or Shankar, you can be sure everything will be spectacular. For my part, I paid special attention to the songs. I wanted them to be powerful,'' he says.

Anything else that we can share with our readers? ''I have not seen such a good-looking, handsome Rajni as this. He looks fabulous,'' says Rahman, whetting further everyone's appetite for the film, which is being produced by AVM.

Rahman's relaxation techniques
Sep 04, 2006
A R Rahman

We need not tell you that a life in filmdom is full of stress and pressure with budgets to take care of and deadlines to meet even if one happens to be a music composer. When it comes to A R Rahman, the expectations that people have is enough to give one the creeps. So how does he unwind and release all the stress that accumulates.

He does not try yoga or the art of meditation or Zen or any of those ancient techniques that are in demand in today's modern world. He simply sits on his green patch. You must be wondering what this green patch is all about. It is nothing, just a lush area of grass that one can see as one enters Rahman's residence.

Rahman likes to lounge on this patch of grass and talk casually and this seems to be his most preferred relaxation. One can also see a hammock hanging close by. When we pry further we get to know that he likes to rock the hammock as his children sit on it. This too seems to be pretty good relaxation technique. We all listen to Rahman music when we feel stressed out. Rahman prefers to take time off from music.

Rahman to cross another boundary
Aug 29, 2006
A R Rahman

Rahman's music needs no prelude. Rising from down south he conquered the entire nation with his musical talent. If that is not enough, he has made the international music arena raise eyebrows showcasing his talent in quite a few Broadway musicals including Bombay dreams.

Looks like the long overdue of Kannada fans to get a dosage of Rahman's music is finally going to be fulfilled. Rahman has nodded his agreement to render music to an as-yet-untitled Kannada movie. Song recording of the movie is commenced in Chennai and is underway with Rahman and his crew burning the midnight oil.

The movie is produced by the noted musician Dr. Murali Manohar and his wife Sunanda Manohar. Dion and Sharmilee play the lead roles in the movie. Nanjunda Gowde is the director of this movie.

Allah Rakha Rahman
Sound & vision: Beyond Bollywood and Broadway 

By SHALINI DORE

He's been variously described as the John Williams of India and the Mozart of Madras; he has sold more than 100 million albums, comprising scores from more than 50 movies; and helmers Spike Lee and Andrew Niccol have used his music in the films "Inside Man" and "Lord of War," respectively.
Along the way, Allah Rakha Rahman's legit musicals "Bombay Dreams" and "The Lord of the Rings" have also brought Indian music to Western audiences.

If Rahman isn't exactly a household name outside his native country, you wouldn't know it following his sold-out Hollywood Bowl concert in July. "Music goes beyond language," he said backstage afterward. "It sounds cliched, but it's true. Today when they heard music, they didn't know if it was Tamil or Hindi or anything, but they were grooving with it."

It's that groove from his work with director Mani Ratnam -- whose collaborations have included "Roja," Rahman's film debut in 1992, as well as "Dil se" -- that piqued Andrew Lloyd Webber's interest, leading to the musical "Bombay Dreams" and a showcase for his work on the West End and Broadway.

The 40-year-old Rahman, who started out playing the keyboards professionally as a boy in Chennai, India, says he enjoys straddling the worlds of movies and theater.

"Being a film musician and always being inside a studio, I think it's good for me to move toward live performance," he says.

But working in the West posed its own challenges. Although his wife and three children joined him in London during school holidays, Rahman found the environment and the deadlines daunting.

"In India, there is no (rush) -- if you want to write a piece, you just call the musicians and you just sit and do your stuff and finish," he says. "My studio, orchestra are all there. Abroad, you're staying in a hotel room. It took me probably four years to get used to writing music there."

His upcoming film work includes Shekhar Kapur's "The Golden Age," a sequel to 1998's "Elizabeth," along with a number of Bollywood features for which he has promised to compose the music. And though the musical version of "LOTR" received less than stellar reviews in Toronto, it is headed for a London run -- that is, after Rahman has made some musical changes.

God Father is ready
IndiaGlitz [Thursday, August 31, 2006]
 

Finally good news for all Ajith-fans. The actor's long-pending God Father may eventually see the light of the day this Deepavali.

Close on the heels of Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu's release, all pending issues preventing the release of God Father directed by K S Ravikumar and produced by NIC Arts Chakravarthy, have been sorted out.

According to sources, God Father featuring Ajith in triple roles with musical score by A R Rahman will make it on the Deepavali day along with the likes of Vijaykanth's Dharmapuri and Vishal's Sivapathikaram.

Meanwhile Ajith is busy shooting for his Aalwar produced by Rajakaliamman films. After Aalwar, Ajith would act in a movie to be produced by Balaji Films, who churned out several movies starring Rajinikanth in the 1980s.

Buzz is that a debutant Vijay Anand, an associate of Malayalam director Priyadharshan, would direct the movie.

The shooting will commence once Ajith is through with his Aalwar.
