image 2008 has been a groovy year for ‘Modern Day Mozart’ with his stupendous musicals of quirky genres. Yeah, set at the historic backdrops of Ancient India, Rahman spelled his trenchant score for the Hindi film ‘Jodha Akbar’ directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar.

Though A. R. Rahman has scored music for just one film (Sakkarakatti) in Tamil this year all the songs have become hits….especially the ‘Taxi….Taxi’ song.  With more films in Hindi his fans had a penchant for his assorted tunes of high-toned orchestral voices and percussions for ‘Azeem – O- Shaan- Shehanshah’ and a mesmerizing Sufi-type number ‘Khwaja Mere Khwaja’. Musical tune for ‘Jashn-E-Bahaara’ would never fade from anyone’s senses….

Perhaps, hop-skipping on contrastive grounds for ‘Jaane Ya Tu Jaanena’ with cool peppy numbers, all the songs happened to be ducky ones for young lads and missies.

Poignant melodies of ‘Tu Hi Meri Dosth’ and ‘Dil Ka Rishta’ from Subash Ghai’s Yuvvraaj have been rendered with top-notching feats.

Aamir Khan’s ‘Ghajini’ fetched more expectations with Rahman’s tunes turning to be chartbusters. ‘Guzarish’, ‘Bekha’ and what not, the entire album has been swaying across far-flung corners of the globe.

Finally, his Big Year ended with Hollywood’s ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ directed by Danny Boyle. Fetching the best of accolades, A.R Rahman won Satellite Awards by International Press Academy. Also he has been nominated for ‘Golden Globe Awards’ for the category of original score.

Well 2009, it’s gonna be a great exciting year for Rahman as he gears up to spin with his magnum opus’ of Mani Rathnam’s bilingual ‘Raavana’ and ‘Ashokavanam’, Rajnikanth-Aishwarya Rai starrer ‘Endhiran – The Robot’, Kamal Haasan’s untitled project and his Hollywood movie titled ’19 Steps’, Pawan Kalyan’s Telugu movie ‘Puli’ directed by SJ Suryah.
