A.R.Rahman to be nominated again for Oscar this year.

Labels: , ,

The Mozart of Madras composed the track Na Na.. for the Hollywood film called Couples Retreat has been included in the nomination list for the Oscars this year for the `Best Original Soundtrack' category A.R.Rahman has tried six different musical influences in the song.If everything goes well, then Mozart of Madras might just create history again. A R Rahman's track Na na from his first Hollywood project Couples Retreat has been included to compete in the official list of nominees for the Academy awards along with 63 other entries for the title of `Best Original Soundtrack' this year. The final list of nominees will be out during the first week of February.

A.R.Rahman broke this news to the media during a press meet on Monday morning organised by music company Saregama to mark the audio launch of Couples Retreat. What makes this nomination even more special is that the music maestro's son Ameen has also sung for the track.

A.R.Rahman mentioned that he has tried out six different musical influences are, a Tamil song, a Hindi classical number, a Spanish song, a classic piano track, African beats and even a Sanskrit sloka. Usually the pressure of getting a prestigious award can get to you and even affect your work, but mastro had signed Couples Retreat even before winning the Oscar.

One of the main reasons he accepted it is because the film belongs to a genre he likes which is comedy. Rahman has also penned the lyrics for the Tamil song Kurukuru Kan in this movie.
Speaking about this he said, It's not the first time he's writing lyrics. In this particular case, he really didn't have a choice, because it was suddenly decided that the movie would also include a Tamil number and sitting in LA it was impossible for him to find a lyricist so soon, that's why he decided to give it a shot.

The movie "Couples Retreat" is based on an original idea of Vince Vaughn’s. The comedy follows four Midwestern couples who embark on a journey to a tropical island resort. While one of the couples is there to work on their marriage, the other three set out to jet ski, spa and enjoy some fun in the sun. They soon discover that participation in the resort’s couples therapy is not optional. Suddenly, their group-rate vacation comes at a price. What follows is a hilarious look at real world problems faced by all couples.
