Walt Disney Records’ Million Dollar Arm soundtrack features music composed and performed by two-time Academy Award®-winning composer A. R. Rahman, the soundtrack includes collaborations with Australian hip-hop artist Iggy Azalea, Grammy®-nominated rapper Wale and Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall. Described by Variety as a “jubilant wall-to-wall song score,” Rahman has created a powerful and driving sound that blends classic Indian styles and instruments with rap, rock and electronica delivering a celebratory soundscape to America’s favorite sport.

"I’m excited to share with music fans some unusual collaborations with Iggy Azalea, Wale, and KT Tunstall on the music in Million Dollar Arm,” said Academy Award-winning composer A. R. Rahman. “The soundtrack we created together truly captures the beautiful culture and energy behind the film— reminding us all how important it is to be open to new possibilities in life. The word Disney always brings a smile to me. I hope this soundtrack and movie stay blessed in many ways.”

A true artist who has redefined contemporary Indian music, A. R. Rahman is an icon in the world of cinematic scoring. Hailed by TIME magazine as the “Mozart of Madras,” Rahman has helped redefine contemporary Indian music. He has sold more than 150 million albums comprising of music from more than 100 film soundtracks and albums across over half a dozen languages, including landmark scores such as “Roja,” “Bombay,” “Dilse,” “Taal,” “Lagaan,” “Vandemataram” and more recently, “Jodhaa Akbar,” “Delhi 6,” “Slumdog Millionaire,” “127 Hours,” “Couples Retreat” and “People Like Us" to name a few.

Overall, Rahman has won two Academy Awards, two Grammys, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA. He has also won 25 Filmfare Awards, 3 MTV Awards, 4 IIFA Awards, 6 Tamil Nadu State Awards, 6 Zee Awards, and 4 Screen Awards.

Based on a true story, sports agent JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) finds that business has changed and things aren’t going well for his career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to find baseball’s next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called “The Million Dollar Arm.” With the help of cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), he discovers Dinesh (played by Madhur Mittal from “Slumdog Millionaire”) and Rinku (played by Suraj Sharma from “Life of Pi”), two 18-year-old boys who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India, the boys, who have never left their rural villages, are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball, JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell) learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.

Directed by Craig Gillespie from a screenplay written by Tom McCarthy, Disney’s drama “Million Dollar Arm” stars Jon Hamm, Aasif Mandvi, Bill Paxton, Suraj Sharma, Lake Bell and Alan Arkin. The producers are Mark Ciardi, Gordon Gray and Joe Roth. The executive producers are Palak Patel, Kevin Halloran, Bill Simmons and Connor Schell.

There aren’t many films about cricket, especially in the United States, where the sport is viewed as a foreign curiosity with impenetrable rules, archaic terminology and a sense of incredulity that it is the only contemporary competitive sport which builds breaks for meals into its schedule. This is despite the fact that much of the world is obsessed with the sport – especially in the Indian subcontinent – to the extent that legendary players are household celebrities. Disney’s film Million Dollar Arm isn’t likely to put the names Sachin Tendulkar or Muttiah Muralitharan on the lips of the average American, but it at least goes some way to trying to illustrate the importance of the game in Commonwealth countries. It stars Mad Men’s Jon Hamm as the real-life American baseball sports agent J.B. Bernstein, a man down on his luck, who comes up with a radical idea to revitalize his career: after accidentally catching a cricket match on TV while channel surfing late one night, he decides to organize a reality competition to find India’s first professional baseball pitcher. Along with cantankerous scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin) and his business partner Ash Vasudevan (Aasif Mandvi), Bernstein travels to Delhi to search for talent, and is surprised when two young men (Life of Pi’s Suraj Sharma and Slumdog Millionaire’s Madhur Mittal) impress him with their skills. The film is directed by Craig Gillespie, based on Tom McCarthy’s screenplay, and has a score by A. R. Rahman.

It’s interesting how A. R. Rahman is still the only Indian film composer to have expanded his horizons to Hollywood.

A. Rahman has hit it out of the ballpark (couldn't help the pun) with this Soundtrack. You MIGHT want to see the movie first, and that was excellent as well. Jon Hamm, India, & Disney. What could be more appealing. Back to the music, TD Tunstall, rapper Wale and Jaspreet Jasz are on three of the songs, the rest is instrumental. Most songs are uplifting and catchy, I play it while I work online during the day. It is Indian music, but not like Bollywood, but more appealing to me, an American, than most Bollywood soundtracks.

A.R. Rahman is a genius; he wrote, arranged, and performed all the selections on this Disney production. The opening song will cause you to shake and wiggle, confident you're apple to perform for a Bollywood vid. As I watched the movie I thought, "I have to order this soundtrack!" and so now when I hear certain songs I can clearly see the movie images. When I hear "Farewell" it gets me every time. Described by Variety as a “jubilant", I agree - that's the perfect word. This CD is so much fun! Take a mental trip to India and get into it. Get up and dance to it. This CD is a must for anyone who enjoyed the movie.

I am only commenting on the soundtrack for the last 5 min of the movie, which is "The Final Pitch" in this album. It's probably the most brilliant piece I have ever heard in a movie. The music flows seamlessly from piano, to Indian, then mixed with strong beat to match with the intensity of the pitch. It required some extraordinary talent to put this piece together with a perfect mix of Eastern and Western, traditional and modern. BTW, the movie is great if a little predictable.
