A.R.Rahman taking Tamil film music to a global arena.


The Mozart of Madras made Indians around the world proud with his double Oscar win for Slumdog Millionaire. And now, music maestro A.R. Rahman has composed a Tamil song for the Hollywood film Couples Retreat, taking Kollywood, especially Tamil film music, to a global arena.

Couples Retreat has been directed by Peter Billingsley and has Vince Vaughn in the lead. Rahman composed and sang the romantic melody Kuru Kuru Kangaliley Ennai Aval Vendraaley, which features prominently in the album. But how did Tamil music enter the film? The humble Rahman reveals, "Initially, Peter (Billingsley) wanted some African tunes for this particular track and I asked him to try out a Tamil song for a change. He agreed, try out a Tamil song for a change. He agreed, and eventually, when the song was composed, it fit the romantic mood perfectly."
