2010 – A Promising Year for A.R. Rahman

By September 9, 2010 No Comments

Maybe, the previous year was his time to get acclaimed as one of the World’s most acclaimed musician. His grand success of Academy awards, Grammy, Golden Globe, BAFTA and many more awards kept him high on spirits. And this year, it’s been a real treat for his fans witnessing his heavy downpour of albums.

It all started with Gowtham Menon’s ‘Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya’ and its Telugu version ‘Ye Maaya Chesavo’. Both the versions topped the charts and ennobled A.R. Rahman for his earnest attempts of taking Tamil music to the next level. Especially the song ‘Hosanna’ still remains over the top. Apparently, his next trilingual album – ‘Raavan’, ‘Raavanan’ and ‘Villain’ and these albums grossed with record-breaking sales in Indian music market.

His direct Telugu album ‘Komaram Puli’ directed by SJ Suryah is already making good business at audio markets. After a long sabbatical gap, A.R. Rahman had composed music for a Telugu album and all the songs including ‘Power Star’, ‘Amma Thale’ have become the favorite numbers even amongst non-Telugu speaking communities.

Doubtlessly, his recent release ‘Enthiran’ has gone higher over the global charts breaking the records. It’s worth mentioning that ‘Enthiran’ is the first Tamil album to have taken a position of No. 1 at World level. The other versions in Hindi and Telugu titled as ‘Robot’ have already become the chartbusters. The Hindi music channels have been continuously airing the songs of ‘Robot’….

Apart from these albums, the academy award winner will score music for Gowtham Menon’s Hind remake of ‘Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya’, which will have couple of additional tunes. He is now associated with 3 international projects ‘Nair San’, ‘Desire’, ‘Paani’ and ‘Danny Boyles’ Hollywood movie ‘127 Hours’. Not to forget, his next Hindi album ‘Jhoota Hi Sahi’ is fast on the way to audio tracks and his previous combination with Abbas Tyrewala in ‘Jaane Ya Tu Jaane Na’ was a tremendous success.

Possibly, ‘127 Hours’ should be yet another key for our Madras Mozart to win yet another academy honor.
