A.R.Rahman & Oscars

It was "Padmashri" AR Rahman few months back.
Then.."Golden Globe winner"AR Rahman few weeks back.
And now, it is TWO TIME OSCAR WINNER A R RAHMAN !!!!!!!!!!


AR Rahman has made all the Indians proud ; especially the Tamilnadu proud. My heart felt proud when he said - “எல்லா புகழும் இறைவனுக்கே“. Really great !!!.

I’m very happy that Rahman taking Indian music to such a great heights. Also, I’m happy that at least now Rahman is getting the much deserved international recognition - due since 1991!

Along with ARR, Resul Pookutty and Gulzar also did an wonderful job and made us proud.

--------------------------------------------------------------

In Internet,TVs and newspapers, it's all ARR for the last few days. Almost all of the new posts/discussions are on "ARR" and "OSCAR" ( So, me tooo ;-)).

I came through some useful(???)posts by some intersting people. Here,the list of posts (enjoy) ...

1. Will ARR's Oscar will be useful to India's growth ?
- மன்மோகன் சிங்க்கு அடுத்தபடியாக முன்னேற்றத்தை பற்றி கவலைபடும் உண்மை இந்தியன்

2. Musical flaws of SDM (Slum Dog Millionare)
- சிம்பொனி சிலம்பு

3. SDM : An English Film by Tamil Musician
- புதிய கண்டுபிடிப்பாளர் ஐன்ஸ்டீன்

7. What ARR did for World Peace ?
- சமாதான கழுகு

4. What's the use of OSCAR ?
- பட்ஜெட் பத்மராஜா

5. Why OSCAR, not given to Ilayaraja ?
- இளையராஜா விசிறி

6.A.R Rahman really deserved this ?
- எதையும் ஆழ்ந்து நோக்கும் சிந்தனையாளர் போல...


--------------------------------------------------------------

Now, My Point of View :

Definately Slumdog Millionaire is not ARR’s masterpeice.. He has given much better ones, which also reached Oscar (Like Lagaan,Black...). But they didn't earn the award.

Is it that the Oscar/BAFTA/Golden Globe juries considered Rahman’s music since it’s a movie directed by a Western director for the Western audience? Not sure how this whole thing works...

Think again..
