Editorial Reviews

2009 release. AR Rahman, composer of the critically acclaimed and award winning Slumdog Millionaire, has undoubtedly established himself as one of the most innovative and influential film composers of all time. With over 200 million albums sold worldwide, Rahman's music is woven of such diversity and innovation that it continues to transcend continental barriers. The Best of AR Rahman exemplifies his finest work in a brilliant and cohesive collection of his music from the past decade. Most recently, Rahman won the 2008 Critics Choice Award, seven Bafta Awards including Best Song, Best Sound and Best Film, a Golden Globe for Best Score and two Academy awards.

The title of the album is misleading and the songs are surely not the best of A.R.Rahman . His magic numbers from Kadhalan , Roja , Boys , Minsara Kanavu , Jeans are missing . If you are looking for some good songs by ARR , this album is fit . But if you want to listen to the best works from this magician , this album is not the right one.

I first discovered A R Rahman's talents as a composer through his work on the SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE soundtrack. I fell in love with his music on the soundtrack so I thought I would check out his other work as a composer. I recently found his best of cd that was released this year at my library and got a copy. While the best of compilation barely does A R's legacy as a composer it did give a taste of his talents as a composer. I will admit some of the music took some time to grow on me like "Rang De Basanti" due to the repetitive rhythms but then there are songs like "Khoon Chala" and "Tere Bina" that reminds me why I love A R's music. The songs on the compilation are taken from Between Heaven and Earth, Bombay Dreams, Dil Hi Dil Mein, Guru, Lagaan, Meenaxi, and Zubeidaa. I didn't even realize until recently that A R was responsible for the wonderful music on Bombay Dreams. THE BEST OF A R RAHMAN is a great introduction for people like myself who fell in love with the music from SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE. I would also recommend checking out his work on GURU.

A. R. Rahman
"The Best Of A. R. Rahman"
(Sony-Legacy/Bollywood Records)
---------------------------------------------
With the amazing Academy Awards sweep by the film "Slumdog Millionaire," Bollywood music stands to make new inroads on the global popular culture, and composer A. R. Rahman -- who got an Oscar of his own that night -- has become a household name around the world, even in the United States. Rahman is one of India's best-known and most highly regarded contemporary songwriters, and this is a top-notch collection of his work, as interpreted by various popular Indian artists . The disc opens with an irresistible dance number, "Rang De Basanti", performed by Chitra Daler Mehndi, and branches out into a variety of styles. It's a great introduction to Rahman's work (there are several others to be found as well...) and an enticing doorway into the world of modern Bollywood pop. Recommended!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
To title an album as "The Best of AR Rahman", it would require at least 6 CDs. This is a great selection and encompases some of Bollywood's best performances between 2000-2005. What's missing are Rahman's compositions written between 1992-1999 and after 2005.

Included Is "Gurus of Peace", a 1997 collaboration with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. This Indo-Pak joint venture certainly destroys the myth that Muslims have not made a significant contribution to the music scene. The fusion of Khan's Sufi influenced Qawhal/Ghazal and Rahman's South Indian infused Bollywood should be given greater recognition which it duly deserves. It is performed by both men in Hindi and English.

This album would be a good introduction to non-Indian listeners because it covers a wide spectrum of popular performers: Chitra, Asha Bhonsle, Sukwinder Singh, et al.

A close friend of mine recommended A.R. Rahman and since purchasing CDs in Hindi is not readily available, I decided to purchase online. This CD contains songs from renowned Bollywood films and it is an overall beautiful collection of A.R. Rahman's musical composition. Although I do not understand the Hindi language, music is universal; it transcends cultures and languages. In short, I have enjoyed it and never get tired of replaying the songs over and over again. Furthermore, it provides a glimpse into India’s diversity.

I wanted a compilation of AR Rahman's soundtracks; this is an interesting CD but not the one I was expecting.
