A. R. Rahman compares him to Mani Ratnam

Rahman’s acclaimed, award winning music score for Slumdog Millionaire is now the talk of cinema buffs everywhere. Rahman was given just three weeks by director Danny Boyle to come up with the score. Rahman has said he found this more challenging than any other score he has written. He went on to say: "It’s probably one-fifth of the time I normally take. For one thing, a normal film has about 150 cues. But in this one there were only 17-18 cues for me. Boyle uses music very less but very efficiently."
Rahman has been all praise for this British director, saying: "I have worked with different people. Most Westerners are generally reserved. But Boyle was different – like a friend, very helpful. It was like working for Mani Ratnam or Rakeysh Mehra. He was very excited about India. He loved India. He loved Mumbai." The soundtrack is already full of Oscar buzz. The track, "Jai Ho" is making waves.
