The entire country is thrilled by the success of Slumdog Millionaire and more so of our very own A R Rahman at the Oscars.

The entire country is thrilled by the success of Slumdog Millionaire and more so of our very own A R Rahman at the Oscars. Rahman bagged two Oscars at one go and created  history for India. This is a very befitting honour for this extraordinarily talented music composer.

Slumdog definitely isn't Rahman's best work, but it is special as it has put Indian film music on the world map and has given Rahman the honour he truly deserves.

Two good: A R Rahman bagged the Oscars for the best song and best original score for Slumdog Millionaire

Rahman has instilled new vigour in Indian film music. His dedication to art and his strength to experiment is what makes him a cut above the rest. No music composer in India can boast of the depth and range that Rahman has. The orchestration of his songs is legendary. Nobody has handled fusion of various genres of music like the way he has.

A R was the first one to break the norm of using popular voices and gave that 'big break' to budding singers. From Sukhwinder to Srinivas to Hema Sardesai to Benny Dayal, the list is endless. Rahman indeed has the Midas touch. 

Rahman's genius is beyond awards and it's great to see that the world has recognised his talent.

Success formula
A R Rahman has done the country proud by his sterling performance at the Oscars. His humility will take him places. The music maestro is likely to cover more ground in years to come.

Rahman has is head on his shoulders, is simple and unaffected by the glamour of the tinsel world. His down to earth attitude is the secret of his success.   

A revolution
Kudos to A R Rahman for creating history at the Kodak Theatre and getting home the prestigious Oscars.

Rahman has grown as an artiste over the years. From Roja to Slumdog, he has come a long way. 

It's hard work and sheer passion towards music that has taken Raham places. Thanks to him, India dominated the Oscars like never before. This win has put India on the global map as far as entertainment goes and will revolutionise Indian cinema in years to come. Raham is a true genius, indeed.  

Clean sweep
Finally, an Indian has made the country proud by winning the Golden Globe, the Bafta and now the Oscar. And A R Rahman is the most deserving of all.

Rahman's work in the past few years has always been Oscar worthy, but the movies to which he contributed did not make it to the nominations. He is nothing short of a genius.

The best part about Rahman is that he is humble and this was evident when on the international stage when all eyes were on him, he thanked the billions of the people back home. Jai ho, Rahman.
