So Indian music composer A.R Rahman won a Golden Globe award for composing the soundtrack for Slumdog Millionaire and the proud Indian media went on like nuts. Winning a Golden Globe award is of course something big but dude, does Rahman deserve this one? I don’t think so.
I have been a fan of A.R Rahman’s music ever since I heard his magical music composition for the flick Roja. I absolutely loved his work. He used to sound so bloody different than the usual Bollywood noise. Soon Rahman followed it up with record selling soundtracks for Bombay, Fire, Dil-se, Rangeela, Taal and many more.
And then what happened? All of a sudden his music starts becoming noise. He’s compositions start smelling like twin cats. Sometimes it became difficult to judge when the song ended and when another one came up. This very period of Rahman’s career bought him down, at least to me. He clearly confessed his deteriorating quality of composition with Yuvvraaj’s music. If anyone had still had doubts, Ghajini proved that A.R Rahman wasn’t getting a full night’s sleep.
But there are retards everywhere. Some morons managed to let Rahman walk away with a Golden Globe Award for Slumdog Millionaire. Now I have seen the movie and I love it. I have heard the soundtrack as well. Apart from one single track there’s nothing so special, nothing worth a ‘Golden Globe’ in it for Rahman. I’m afraid this might encourage Rahman to throw crap into our ears. Again.
To me A.R Rahman is crap. This award makes it official to me!
