4.0 out of 5 stars Afternoon delight March 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Couples Retreat is a comedy about three couples - Vince Vaughn and Malin Akerman, Jon Favreau and Kristin Davis, Faizon Love and Kali Hawk - who, in order to help save the marriage of their friends Jason Bateman and Kristin Bell, agree to travel to a tropical-island resort for a vacation. Once on the island they meet the island's patron, Sctanley (Peter Serafinowicz), who forces all the couples to engage in all manner of unusual "therapy sessions"... with hilarious results. The film is directed by Peter Billingsley, still best known for his performance as Ralphie in A Christmas Story when he was 12 years old, and has an original score by last year's double Oscar-winner, Indian composer A.R. Rahman.

For him to choose a throwaway romantic comedy like Couples Retreat as his first mainstream Hollywood feature might seem a little peculiar, but it's actually not that much of a stretch. Throughout his career in India Rahman has mixed scoring serious dramas and action films with comedies and musicals, and he's simply expanded his repertoire to include mainstream American films. It also helps tremendously that parts of Couples Retreat are genuinely lovely. The tour-de-force cue is the "Jason & Cynthia Suite", an emotional, full-orchestral piece that any Hollywood composer would be proud to call their own. Building from intimate acoustic guitars, it gradually swells and grows into a wonderful, spine-tingling romantic celebration of love and life, and dispels entirely the notion that Rahman is a one-trick pony, and finally shows American audiences why he is so revered and in demand in his homeland.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!! October 10, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Rahman got it all in one.. A nice intro for Hollywood I guess. I could sense he trying different genres in a single OST. Hip hop.. Indian traditional.. Western.. nice orchestration in couple.. and a beautiful Kuru Kuru Kangalilae.. a simple but very catchy tune.. I am not sure if the movie can live up to aspirations of a extremely talented music composer.. I wish it does. In an art of immense possibility whose current trend offers nothing but a blandness (very few exceptions though), Rahman is a nice hope to have.. don't miss it.

I am pretty sure that even if people don't remember the film name but they will remember Music by AR Rehman in Hollywood Movie ( Hindi and Tamil Song songs in Holly wood)

Music Review :

Woh! i feel proud when i came to know that the oscar award winner A. R rehman given Music to a Hollywood movie.

2. There are total of 15 tracks

Kuru kuru kangalilele...
(Rolling or naughty eyes)

4. Sajna Track : English and Hindi Words : a nice soft romantic number

5. Animal Soundtrack : amazing compilation . Worth listening

6. Nana : Another amazing peppy compilation . Rap compilation-- > My Fav : Turn on the speakers , get on the dance floor

7. Insstrumental version of Sajna is "tour of Villas"

Recommended tracks - Nana , Kuru Kuru, Sajna, Animal Track

I thought I heard more of the songs I liked in the movie so was disappointed in the cd. I liked the songs that weren't on the cd better
