Allah-Rakha Rahman or as we popularly know him, A. R. Rahman, the name itself resonates with a powerhouse of talent. He has given the film industry such magnificent masterpieces and that is precisely what makes him a true legend. With a remarkable contribution in both the South film industry as well as Bollywood, A. R. Rahman has now become a household name worldwide. The 2009 Oscar winner has made the country proud numerous times before and is ready to enthral you this time in your city. Catch the maestro perform live on stage and witness a performance like never before. As we prepare ourselves for the live concert, we thought of compiling a list of seven of his songs which were great but did not gain popularity.
Ek Tu Hi Bharosa – Pukar (2000)
While Prabhudeva and Madhuri Dixit’s Kay Sera Sera stole the limelight when it came to songs of the movie. This track sung by Lata Mangeshkar and composed by Rahman got lost somewhere.
Mera Yaar Mila De Saaiyaan – Saathiya (2002)
With great performances and a gripping storyline, Saathiya still remains a favorite of many. With songs sung by Sonu Nigam, the album was a hit. However, this one sung by A. R. Rahman himself is a pure gem.
Dol Dol – Yuva (2003)
A collaboration of Blaaze and Rahman, this one beautifully captures the spirit of Kolkata however, went unnoticed because of the movie’s different take on gangsters.
Dekho Na – Swades (2005)
One of SRK’s best movies, the title track of the album was a huge success. This one here however, is yet another of Rahman’s brilliant compositions.
Ay Hairathe – Guru (2007)
Loosely inspired on the life of Dhirubhai Ambani, Guru’s songs had a touch of Gujarat attached to them. And this one here is a slow and soothing number you can listen to at any point of time.
Jaane Tu Ya Na Jaane Na – Jaane Tu Ya Na Jaane Na (2008)
A young rom-com, Rahman has done a terrific job with some fresh and light songs. This song however, did not gain popularity. Its jazz treatment lends this song a sweet melody.
Rehna Tu – Delhi – 6 (2009)
This one cannot be explained. You have to give it all ears to know why we love this song so much. Go for it.
You can now watch the legend perform live on stage, as he is set to tour various cities in India in the massive national tour, ENCORE with MTV. Book your tickets here!
