Iam a die hard fan of AR.But for that reason,I would not blindly accept whatever he composes.Both IR and ARR were two icons in the music industry,but their styles are completely different.No one can take the credit from ARR and IR for making the TFM popular across the world.
But when it comes to BGM and rerecording ARR has improved through these years but still IR is the king in these fields and ARR is no where near his standards.ARR is a novice in these areas.PIthamagan's BGM and rerecording are the recent milestones of IR(no surprise his name was projected first).
Meanwhile many seem to confuse between BGM and rerecoding.Only this forum could be the right place to ask.
Can anyone say exactly what is meant by re-recording???

BGM as all know is BackGround Music. It is a generic term..it can be the misic that comes in a song or in the background of the scenes in the movie. The latter is called re-recording.
It is called re-recording, because a Music Director apparently records or shoots the whole film for the second time with music ( after the director records the visuals with camera )

Thanks for the info RAJA.Can anyone give some instances of some scintilating re-recording
in both IR and ARR movies.I think Both "The Legend of Bhagat Singh" and "Alaipayuthe"had good re-recording.Iam not fit to comment on IR's re-recording.

IR is a Maestro. Maestro is a World honour. After getting that honour, how it will be if he is given the thukkada awards? It will be like giving a bachelors degree for a person who has completed Ph.D. What they can do is just honour him. It will be like honouring the music. That's all. As far as ARR is concerned, he too will become another Maestro. He has not improved much in his BGM. The other thing is to give a pucca song, he takes a long duration. That should change. Maestro composes songs in 5 minutes. That too explicitly wonderful. That is really incredible.

Going by the same argument of Siraichallai Vs Misarakannavu, Bharathi is way better than Kannathil Muthamital. By KM got the award because ARR, MR are better marketing campaigners (boot lickers) than IR or Gnanasekaran (Director of Bharathi)

strong comments on IR.
After A.R.Rehman's and because of him, other Music Directors have got chance to give weak music. Because IR has bought thousands of musi listeners from north to south. He bought more values by composing in his own style within the border of classical Music. Today ARR is one of the best music director. But today his weak entity in Tamil Film Industry by giving 4 to 5 films in an year has given chances More Music directors, even though they not having more/complete knowledge about music such as classical & western. By giving some noisy music, they are destroying value Music itself. As far as I am concern IR never had competition between any one. But If ARR stays strongly in Tamil Film by giving 20 - 30 film in an year, then some sort of respect may get to South Indian Film. Otherwise I am sorry ARR would'nt be like IR. Because. IR in Music World is a Maestro and he is always. But more entries of L-Board Music Directors may hit both IR & ARR. This is only because of ARR and not IR. All are bootlicker of Music whether ARR or IR or others. Then what........

A R Rahman plucks the strings of a harp following a rehearsal at the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
Rahman's popularity and credibility as a music composer par excellence remains undisputed. He proved that at the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO), United Kingdom.
Rahman conducted the orchestra, which featured his compositions for films like Bombay, Lagaan, Dil Se.., Meenaxi, Warriors of Heaven and Earth (the Chinese film) as well as the Broadway musical Bombay Dreams.
The music whiz has sold over 40 million recordings worldwide. Need we say more?

The award does not matter for IR. As he is a Mastero. May be for sound engineer ARR.
IR can command a move from start to finish. But none have matched him till now even so called sound engineer ARR also.

By the amount of vetti posts in so many threads, it's not surprising to see tat when a certain md's albums' hype wanes so does the listening pleasure.
