.R.Rehman on the footsteps of Illayaraja

08.10.2005

As much as music does not need language, A.R.Rehman does not need introduction.  Rapidly becoming a brand himself, his interests are multi-faceted.

Movies, Vande Mataram music album, Bombay Dreams play…his passion is ever growing

Just as Illayaraja spread his wings with symphony and Tiruvasagam apart from movies, A.R.Rehman too is enlarging his sphere of musical interest.  He too is a spiritualist, like Illayaraja!

His spirituality finds him praying at Dargas and dedicating his fame to Allah. He too has a wish - to score music for a devotional work. For this, A.R. has chosen the hymns of the Islamic spiritualist Kunangudi Mastan Sahib.

Rehman is planning to produce it as a symphony or some other celebrated musical form. Here is a chance for Kunangudi Mastan Sahib,s hymns to stir the younger generation in the same  way Illayaraja's Thiruvasagam did,.  It is also an opportunity to tell the world about our heritage and culture.

Our best wishes to A.R.Rehman!

ON THE BEAT

Singing in the rain with Rahman

G Ulaganathan


A R Rahman's show at the Palace Grounds was almost a washout. It is a pity that in Bangalore there is no other place where such mega shows can be organised. With dark clouds hovering over the horizon, the large gathering on Saturday had no option but to silently pray --along with the maestro himself --to keep the raingods at bay. The gods must have heard the prayers as it started pouring only towards the fag end of the concert, just as Rahman began his Maa tujhe salaam.

But the ground was slushy --the effect of evening rains--and for nearly four hours, the crowd had to keep standing, but they didn't mind because of the high quality music that went down well with all age groups. "It was a miracle that our equipment didn't suffer any damage", said Rahman just before leaving the City on Sunday. The audience who had paid a huge amount deserved better amenities. The food court set up by a star hotel had eatables at exorbitant prices--a cup of coffee costing Rs 20, soft drinks for Rs 50 per bottle. Less said the better about the snacks --they cost anything between Rs 50 to Rs 200.

Rahman rocks the Garden City

Deepa Ganesh



MUSICAL GENIUS: A.R. Rahman lost in his own music.

BANGALORE: Dark clouds covered the afternoon sky. But towards early evening it looked bright again. All was well, Bangaloreans thought, and unsurprisingly, all roads did lead to Palace Grounds. It was six, an hour before the much-awaited A.R. Rahman concert by India Classic Arts. The skies opened up and truly, like the adage, it never rains, it pours and there was a downpour. The props on the stage gave way and the 3D gadget conked out, but the 25,000-odd crowd would not move. Every two minutes, young and old, screamed: "We want Rahman." Rahman made a two-second dramatic appearance with a huge umbrella and announced: "These showers are godsend. Give me one hour and I promise you, it will be the best performance so far." And when the performance did begin at 9 p.m., there was much ecstasy, on stage and off stage. The audience could barely sit in their chairs and the singers could not stop smiling and swaying. Rahman barely put his finger on the synthesiser and they knew what song was coming. The opening song was the energetic number from Yuva which Rahman himself performed with his 10-member chorus and elaborate live orchestra. Percussion whiz Sivamani had an elaborate rhythm apparatus. Hariharan and Sadhana Sargam sang quite a few numbers together including the evergreen "Roja Janeman" from Roja . Shankar Mahadevan, Blazee and Rahman belted out "Hamma Hamma", while Kailash Kher stole hearts with his "Mangal Mangal". "Jhanan Jhanan", a duet by Sukhwinder and Sadhana, from the yet to be released Water was outstanding. The surprise was a Kannada translation by P.B. Sreenivos of the lovely Bombay number "Kannaleye" into Kannada, "Oh Iniyane". Chitra, as usual, gave an impeccable rendition with Rahman joining her for the interludes, with his beautiful uncultivated nuances. Bangalore singer Badri Prasad rocked with "Mukkala Mukabala". They sang and sang, but the audience was left craving for more. It was a concert to remember for many years to come.

Nila opposite Vijay?

IndiaGlitz [Friday, October 07, 2005]

Nila, who made her debut opposite S J Suryah in the latter's Anbae Aruyirae, is happy not just the movie has had a decent opening.

She is now acting director Dharani's Telugu movie Bangaram starring Pawan Kalyan.

Meanwhile, the actress is tipped to act opposite Vijay for his next movie Puli, which would be directed by her mentor S J Suryah, who introduced her to filmdom.

After Kushi, Puli will be a grand coming together for Suryah and Vijay.

And Suryah, as usual, has pulled a coup of sorts by roping in A R Rehman to score the music.

Suryah is also happy to give Nila another break.

Suryah says, 'Nila is a talented actress and she can play any role with aplomb. I am sure she will do justice to the role'.

An official confirmation on Nila's casting is still expected.

A casting coup!

By Moviebuzz | Friday, 07 October , 2005, 11:11

Surya and Asin have become the hottest pair of Kollywood after the stupendous success of Ghajini . Their on-screen chemistry was terrific which had a major role in making the film a big hit. Now the latest news is that the hit pair is back once again in Jillennu Oru Kathal .

This unusual triangular love story is produced by Surya's cousin Gjanavel and directed by debutant Krishna. Jyothika plays Surya's wife in the film and it is a casting coup to bring the two leading ladies with the hottest hero in town.

Jillennu Oru Kathal will have music by A.R.Rahman who will compose six melodious songs, camera by R.D.Rajasekhar, editing by Anthony and story is by A.C.Dorai. The shooting will be in Rajamudry, Visakhapatanam, Kovai and Chennai. The songs will be canned in some exotic foreign locales.

This will be Surya's summer 2006 release and already distributors are queuing up to buy the product.
