Stories | Vinnai Thaandi Vanthaachu!

Posted By Aravind Lr
Yet another ARR release. Yet another album that was very much hyped. Yet another album whose release was delayed due to reasons that will never be known. Yet another time where ppl set high expectations. Yet another time when Facebook and Orkut status messages were filled with VTV reviews. And yet another instance where my Media player playlist has been on repeat mode for 3 consecutive days!
People say every ARR album is different from the other. Partially incorrect I would say. Every album goes into the repeat mode in my playlist. Every album has high expectations. Every album is highly scrutinized by critics initially. And eventually, every album proves the critics wrong! This album is no different to the others in any way.
One crazy phenomenon I have noticed with every ARR release is this. Most of the ppl complain of the album as unimpressive and not catchy. But, a week or two later, they realize they were wrong.

  1. Grammy awards
    • I 'm happy to be nominated on the same platform as some of the best musicians in the world. Let's see what happens.
  2. Son Shine
    • Couple's Retreat was my first venture into main stream Hollywood. What makes the movie extra special is that my son Ameen has sung part of a track, Na Na, in it. He's just six-and-a half. It's too soon to say, but let's hope he chooses music when he grows up.
  3. Spirit of Music
    • I 'm looking forward to my authorised biography, A.R.Rahman -- The Spirit of Music, a `book of conversations' between Nasreen Munni Kabir, a writer and a documentary filmmaker and myself. The book will be ready for release mid-2010.
