Check Your Rahman Quotient


At this juncture, when A.R.Rahman is winning all possible American awards and nominations for his score in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, here I present a small celebration of his music in the form of a musical collage comprising some of his famous and beautiful movie themes. I want to post more on Rahman’s background scores in this blog in coming weeks, to keep the ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ fever alive. And ofcourse, as always you can guess the movie names of these 21 themes and check your Rahman quotient. Extended version of each of these themes will be posted separately later.

kannan said...

1. Roja
3. Indian (one of my favourite themes appears in this movie, though not this particular theme)
4. No idea (Duet /Kadhal Desam?)
6. Jodhaa Akbar (the wonderful love theme! one of the few things that made the movie bearable)
10. Kannathil Muthamittal (Theme in opening sequence between Nandita and husband)
11. Rang De Basanti (Aamir Khan crying scene?)
12. Iruvar! (was going to say Guru, then caught myself. the central plot of two stories had some similarity, so almost made the mistake)
14. Argh very familiar but I don't know what!!!
15. Thiruda Thiruda train scene? (I don't know what is making me say this, I haven't seen the movie in over 10 years)
17. Gentleman! (love this theme)
20. Guru?

hmmm I didn't get 21 pieces! I guess I might have grouped two peices together somewhere due to my unfamiliarity. Thanks for the wonderful journey, making me think about some movies I haven't thought about in a while!
