Songs by A R Rahman that will soothe your Soul

From starting a music studio in his backyard in the 1980s to winning the Academy Award for best soundtrack for Slumdog Millionaire in 2008, A.R. Rahman’s life story serves as a powerful source of inspiration. Here are a few songs from the legend that will soothe your soul. 

1. Chaiyyan Chaiyyan - Dil Se (1998)

This 1998 romantic thriller reunited Ratnam’s filmy genius with Rahman’s musical mastery. The track “Chaiyya Chaiyya” won both musical and dancing accolades, thanks to choreographer Farah Khan’s brilliantly sequenced train dance.

2. Ishq Bina - Taal (1999)
This 1999 romantic drama was the first collaborative project between filmmaker Subhash Ghai and Rahman. Most would agree the music made this movie what it was, so it is no surprise that the album won just about every music award possible in 1999. 

3. O Rey Chorri - Lagaan (2001)
Ashutosh Gowariker’s 2001 cricket drama not only won national and international accolades for the film itself but also for Rahman’s musical work. Many reviewers at the time called the “Lagaan” soundtrack one of Rahman’s best works to date. No wonder it has been reported that 3.5 million copies of the album sold in one year!

4. Mera Yaar Mila De - Saathiya (2002)
Ratnam and Yash Chopra partnered together as producers for this 2002 romantic drama. All the songs of the “Saathiya” album were very popular, with Rahman himself providing the vocals for the melancholic tune “Mera Yaar Mila De.”

5. Rang De Basanti - Rang De Basanti (2006)
This 2006 drama’s ensemble cast was rivaled only by the variety of Rahman’s musical compositions for the film. From the soulful “Khoon Chala” and “Tu Bin Bataye,” to the upbeat “Rang De Basanti” and “Roobaroo,” there is something for everybody on this wonderful soundtrack.
