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..
