From 1992, when Roja was released to this date, with Tamasha in 2015, A.R.Rahman is the man to watch out in the music world. Even though, I am glad he won an Oscar, I am not sure if that movie was supposed to have won it. Yes, he does deserve more awards for sure!
Today, on his birthday as I look back the two decades of brilliant music, I still feel the freshness as I listen to 'Kadhal Rojave' or 'Chinna Chinna Aasai/Dil Hai Chota sa' just like it was years ago. That is his magic touch. Now you can understand why I cannot pick one easily. So, here is a list of just 3 songs.
If I have to choose one that just was on my playlist. This is it :
Main Albeli by Kavitha Krishnamurthy in Zubeida movie. This is not usually played frequently but this lovely dance number has a flamenco style to it. So, here it is. Enjoy and Happy Birthday ARR!
