Over the years, he composed songs and background scores that made one dance, laugh and cry. The genius in him created haunting melodies for the critically acclaimed film “Slumdog millionaire” and eventually, he went on to make India proud by winning 2 Oscars and 2 Grammys.
Here are my top 25 favorite songs composed by AR Rahman.
1. Kannalane.. (Bombay, 1995)
One of Rahman’s finest compositions and Chitra’s melodious voice makes this song is a good treat. Every song in Bombay have it’s own quality.
2. Netru Illathe (Puthiya mugam, 1993)
Listening to this song is like experiencing cool breeze. Revathy’s natural acting adds cherry to the cake.
3. Konjam Nilavu (Thiruda Thiruda, 1993)
A variety from A R Rahman. The best soundtrack with modern instrumentation.
4. Kadhal Rojave (Roja, 1992)
Old is gold. The song that shot A R Rahman to fame. Even today this is considered as his finest. S.P Balasubrahmaniam’s passionate voice and Sujatha’s vocals makes this a memorable melody.
5. En veettil thottathil poovellam (Gentleman, 1993)
Perfect classic composition with Sujatha’s voice to enhance it’s quality. Flower keeps blooming every time we listen to it.
