A.R.RAHMAN

A.R. Rahman, The Music Genius, in fact A.S. Dilip Kumar, was born in a family of music with his father K.A.Sekhar, renowned music director in South India composing music for films in the early childhood of A.R. Rahman.

After the death of his father, A.S Dilip Kumar, renamed himself as A.R. Rahman for his strong faith in ISLAM, began playing key boards at the age of 9. At the age of 11, he was giving accompaniment for under the likes of "IlayaRaja", "M.S.Vishwanathan" and "Ramesh Naidu". The guide lines given to him by these great music directors and the knowledge in music he gained through working with these music composers placed A.R. Rahman in a right place at times of difficulty.

Through all the hardships he faced, he managed to qualify for the scholarship in Trinity Music College Of London. Afterwards, he returned to India with a dream of bringing an international and contemporary world perspective to Indian Music. He put up a state of the art sound and recording studio and began experimenting in sound engineering, sound design and sound production by a collection of sounds creating one of the most comprehensive sonic libraries in ASIA.

A.R. Rahman had to start his career as a commercial music director composing jingles for ad campaigns that include leading Indian Corporations as "Parry's", "Tata", "Titan" and others for six years until when, at a party, he was, quite unexpectedly, previleged to be introduced to one of the best directors in India, Mani Ratnam who had given him a chance in his movie that launched A.R. Rahman's debut and amazingly shot him to the limelight.

In a music world dominated filmi scores, A.R. Rahman has scored about a dozen hit films in a span of eight years, whose audio sales crossed 2.5 million units. The first movie, "ROJA" fetched A.R. Rahman the "National Film Award" in 1992 and thrust him on to the top place. In 5 years since, he scored music for a lot of block buster films namely - "Pudhiya Mugam", "Gentleman", "Kizhaku Seemalyilae", "Duet", "KADALAN", "Bombay", "May", "Madbam", "Indian", "Mutbu Kadal Desam","Love Birds", "Jeans", "Oke Okkadu", etc,.

In 1995, his sound track for "Bombay" crossed sales of 5 million units signalling A.R. Rahman's arrival as the "King of Indian Pop" with sales of more than 40 million albums over a period of three years. Today, A.R. Rahman is the heart throb of the music world and all time great music directors in the field. He, in "ROJA" proved that the traditional tunes too could touch the hearts. And songs as "Thiruda Thiruda", "Gentleman", "Rangeela", "Kaghal Desam" and "Minsara Kanavu" established him as a prodigy.

A.R. Rahman, being very much religious and totally dedicated to his craft, has a great love for music of different traditions. "Bach", "Beethoven", "Mozart", "Reggae", "Rock" and "Carnatic" music are his first priorities. His inspirational, infectious numbers won him a lot of praise in India. The Tamil movie "Minsara Kanavu" earned him the award for "Best Music" in May '97. He has been honoured with a "Rajat Kamal Award" for "Best Music Director", "The FilmFare Award", "Cinema Express Award", "Telugu Academy Puraskar Award" for the year 1992-94, "Bommala Nagi Reddy Award", "Sumu Award", "Rajiv Gandhi Award" and etc,.

A.R. Rahman has been hailed as a music genius by world artists including "Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan", with whom he performs a duet in his first pop album, Vande Mataram. He is involved in projects with "Zakir Hussain", "David Byrne", "Talvin Singh" and "Apache Indian". Internationally too, A.R. Rahman has remarkable recognition that "David Byrne" was so impressed and asked him to take part in a few sessions for his new project. Personally, A.R. Rahman has a passion to sing in the filmi tracks. Vande Mataram, his first pop album is the first to showcase him as a singer and his ambition to place his sound track on the world music stage. A concert was held in "Kaula Lampur" in Oct 1965 where he performed in front of a crowd of 45000.

As an individual personality, A.R. Rahman leads an extremely devote religious life and credits all his musical inspiration to ALLAH. He comes across to say, " music speaks, statements don't and none can completely be original because the notes are already there: from the notes we form a rag and from rag a tune. It's the methodology. As far as i can, to my conscience, I try to be original. The rest is upto ALLAH". As A.R. Rahman takes his new project, Vande Mataram, to the world, he reflects on his immense popularity on the sub-continent and the globe as he says, "music is international - only cultures are different". A.R. Rahman, 30 years now, has still a long way to go ahead.

A.R. Rahman Stuns! Release date fixed?

Click to enlarge photo

Ever since the audience heard AR Rehman's compositions in 'Kangalaal Kaidhu Sei', they have been eagerly awaiting the film's release

The year 2003 had been a fabulous one for AR Rehman. He has had three big hits this year- 'Boys', 'Yenakku 20 Unakku 18' and 'Kangalaal Kaidhu Sei'.

The film 'Kangalaal Kaidhu Sei' is a film wth a difference. After a long gap, Bharatiraaja is touching yet another favorite topic of his- Crime thriller.

'The story is different, so is the music'- this was Bharatiraaja's compliment to AR Rehman. He also said that Rehman had composed music that suits the film's story and also appeals to the younger crowd.

Bharatiraaja launches two good-lookers in the film- Vaseekaran and Priyamani.

The film had been postponed because Bharatiraaja had got involved in 'Eeranilam'. NOw, this film is ready too and was first scheduled to be released for Pongal, but, Bharatiraaja decided to avoid unnecessary competiton in the Pongal crowd with newcomers and has therefore postponed his film's release to January 26th.

Shankar and Rahman Breaking Away?

Click to enlarge photo

Looks like Tamil Cinema is going through the Autumn season. A lot of buddies who have been together heart and soul, are now departing. And now, there is hot talk about Shankar and Rahman being on this list!

From Gentleman, Shankar and Rahman, have till date given 6 musical hits, all vibrating with youth and color with the recent hit Boys which brought Rahman back to Tamil Cinema, both he and Shankar have been proving to be an excellent combination.

Well it is said that how Shankar first waved away Vairamuthu for Boys, he is now ready to do the same with Rahman. And Shankars close circles reveal that he has invited Harris Jayaraj for his next movie Robot, for whose music, Shankar seems to have just fallen flat.

Shankar and Rahman do not have any disagreeing terms or opinions. It is said that, as Rahman is almost throttled by his international projects, he is not able to concentrate on Tamil movies, and hence Shankar has taken this decision.

What do we do about Shankars decision? Worry or Rejoice?

AR Rehman's latest fan!

Click to enlarge photo

Guess who AR Rehman's latest fan is? The Secretary-General of the UN, Kofi Annan himself!

This is probably one of the proudest moments in Rehman's life. Kofi Annan is planning a musical event on the 3rd of December in New York. Rehman is going to be appointed as a special ambassador for the UN at the event.

The post requires that he be willing to offer his services at the moment's notice for the UN. AR Rehman has already given his consent to this.

'Dizzying heights' doesn't even closely describe what AR Rehman is climbing these days!

A.R.Rahman: The 'Id ka chand' reappears

 
Click toenlarge photo

His Andrew Lloyd Webber stint seemed to have Rahman so completely engrossed that he was hardly seen in local climes like Chennai. But the upbeat sales of his latest songs for Kadhir's Kaadhal Virus seem to have inspired him with affection for the land of Tamils once again. Recently, Rahman has graced public functions like shehnai maestro Bismillah Khan's concert in Chennai for the Amir Khusro Academy of music, where he personally felicitated the great Bismillah. With Kaadhal Virus facing competition from the Harris Jayaraj track of Laysa Laysa, and Sriram Parasuram, husband of 'O Podu' girl Anuradha Sriram emerging as a music director, it is time Rahman returned to reclaim some lost ground in Tamil filmdom. If rumours are to be believed, his family life too, stands in need of attention.
