Lagaan Suite

Lagaan has A.R.Rahman’s best background score yet. I already have posted a detailed analysis on Lagaan background score here. The background score cues from Lagaan have been compiled as a Suite that plays for 32 odd minutes. Now and here you can relive the Lagaan experience in just 32 minutes through its music.

Thanks for that.

I wonder if the original recordings of the score still exist? Now that Rahman's internationally famous I want to talk to some of the film score labels to try to see if they can get this thing released.

Thanks a lot! It's of great quality!

Thank you so, so much for this Suresh!

To any fans reading this, this is the most complete collection of Lagaan BGMs so far as it contains so many BGM cues that are missing from the previous collection of Lagaan BGMs that are available at the moment on the net from places like rahmanism.com

But Suresh I have two requests; I was wondering if you could please post the complete collection of Lagaan BGMs for download as I noticed that you have edited some cues for the suite version when compared to your review page e.g. Bhuvan's introduction scene. It doesn't matter if voices are heard now and then in the track.
Also could you please post the BGMs in at least 192kbps quality; there are some points where the limitations of 128kbps are all too clear for the listener to hear.

Sorry if I'm being too demanding but I and many ARR fans would be so grateful for this; a complete collection of Lagaan BGMs is like the holy grail for me and many other ARR fans.

DemonStar - Yes. It would be a great gift if some music label agrees to release such scores...

Arvi - You are welcome.

Anup - I will try my best to fulfill your demands...
