A R Rahman is surely busy with many Hindi projects of International standards with Subash Ghai, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Rajkumar Santoshi. So how many Tamil films is he gonna take in future. His experiments are not being aplauded in Tamil. For eg: Aayitha Ezhuthu music appealed only to the urban mindset audience. New had nothing great and his E20U18, Udhaya, Parasuram showed carelessly composed tunes. Desam is a good album, but will the Tamil mass lap it up along with the movie? Swades and Kisna are really doing good business and are being critically acclaimed.
So, what are the projects Rahman will take in Tamil in future. He is doing K S Ravikumar's Ajith starrer Godfather, may be S J Surya's next and of course Mani Ratnam's next. Shankar has teamed up with Harris for now and no news from director Kathir. Rajeev Menon is also planning a Hindi venture. But there is a small scoop, Bollywood's favourite director Rajkumar Santoshi is planning a film in Tamil after directing 10 Hindi films. He is a Tamil lover and likes old Tamil tunes too. Ilayaraaja did the BGM for his Lajja. So, will ARR compose the music for Rajkumar Santoshi's Tamil film, as he has done Pukar, The Legend of Bhagat Singh for the Hindi director and also composed for his produced Priyan directed, Doli Sajakhe Rakhna.
His regional film interest seems to be low. What say???

'New' had nothing great in it? C'mon, I think the songs Thottal Poo Malarum and Sakkarai will feature in any top songs of 2004 list, not to mention the wonderful melody 'Amma'. IMHO, He had a huge gap from tamil films in 2001-02 years. Now he is starting to get back after AE and New. I agree with you that some of his projects aren't getting the public attention eg. Kangalal Kaidhu Sei which had amazing melodies but the movie was crap so the songs never picked up.

Mani is back in Chennai!
Wednesday, 15 December , 2004, 12:09
Mani Ratnam who was hospitalised in Goa during the IFFI for acute chest pain is now back in Chennai.
Accompanied by wife Suhasini, Mani looked cheerful at the Chennai airport and said: “I am fully fit and there is nothing to worry about. I am back to my regular chores”.
According to sources close to the director, he is writing a script for a Tamil film for which he plans to start shoot by April 2005 with all new comers.

"here i have to haplessly convince ppl. of TN that it is a gud album even" - No one convinced TN people when Roja and Bombay released. It had great acceptance b'caz of itz quality. If that is not the case with "boys", then the MD has to think what went wrong.
"ARR shuld give a big middle-finger salute to TN" - Itz always good to resign before being dismissed.

I dont think ARR will leave TFM...though he is busy in national and international albums, its only TFM that brought him up and got him fame... I even remember ARR telling this in one of the interview...
No one will wish to leave their mother land and will neglect which bought them name and fame...
As ARR is busy at the moment, he is not able to commit himself for TFM...he will come back soon.. he always try something hard to give in TFM, you can see that, when Godfather and other movies he has commited...
Come on guys, give ARR sometime with TFM...

no, i personally feel ARR shuld come to Mumbai.....here, he will get the respect he deserves and he will find life pretty cool here and can relax more.....we adore him here......even though all r not his fans they know his value and they accept his gr8ness.......ARR shuld leave TFM but shuld not leave India.....that's the ultimatum.....come on guys, everyone will be happy if this happens, both IR fans and ARR fans and common man(of TN) too.....ARR, come to Mumbai-this is ur Swades.....

MADDY MAD MAN,
Your verbal violence against IR & his family is understandable. When one is burning inside, such will be the hatred. We all understand ARR didn't go anywhere after Roja. He stuck to MR,BR,Shankar,KB,Kathir and others he thought can give him success. You see, success will never be success when you don't have talent and rely on others to carry it. Success will be success when regardless of the movie or the director you still can compose soul stiring tunes and better still, people still listen after 25 years.
Like I said, we all understand ARR didn't "go" anywhere after Roja. You call Bombay Dreams Mozartian? You call the soundtrack to Warriors of Heaven and Earth successful??...may be in heaven. How many of MR's films are successful after Roja? Compare that to how of MR's film are successful after Mouna Raagam? You dare compare a person who's Anakili to Viswa Thulasi is being talked about and listened all these years to a jingle composer? Please go rethink your brain. If that statement doesn't make sense then let it be....for it is enough for a MadMan.

what you have mentioned are hardly facts - those are the words of a fanatic who knows ARR's arrival marked the end of IR era.
ARR didnt go anywhere after Roja? What abt his 4 National Awards, compared to IR's 3? And where did this Raja go after Annakili? After all he is a tamil composer who composes for South Indian languages alone, whereas ARR is the most successful South Indian composer in Hindi. And who talks abt Vishwathulasi? May be the fans alone. Like zz said not even hundred cassettes (who wud care to buy wasting money on CD) would be sold.
And I dont care if Warriors of Heaven and Earth was not successful. The point is the songs of WOHE never sounds like the composition of a South Indian. ARR used traditional chinese instruments bring out such an excellent composition.
Imagine what wud have happened if IR composed WOHE. When an emotional scene comes, all you wud hear in the bgm would be some violin crap. And when action comes, you wud hear drums alone. And when a heroic scene comes, there wud be a saxophone music. Thats all, and that was what IR made the tamils believe bgm is, until the arrival of ARR.
Now dont even dare compare ARR to IR.

I did not take it seriously what ML said....
As maddy has put it...we have respect for IR but his jalra's hatred towards ARR drive most of Non-IR bashing- ARR fans furious.
