Akon is muslim too. Read in wikapedia.
all the talented musical film industries are not known to the world. For most people bollywood (hindi) film music industy is indian film music industry. Tamil Kollywood, Malayalam Mollywood Telungu Tollywood and Kanadam are unknown. A R Rahman is tamil originally from Tamil Naadu but to the world he's a bollywood musician. Not fair
vikramsrivastava51 is a muslim and not from india.
Yeah once we've smoked the muslims and christians we'll go after all the lower castes...and then of course all the Gothras that are different from you.......damn why don't u just listen to his music if you like it or just let him be...
AR Rahman has written music to two of my favorite movies: Rang de Basanti and Slumdog Millionaire. I love his music!!
ARR rules. He is a decent modest simple person. And AMAZINGLY talented. Humble - a "man of God".
ARR is awesome. Hit the nail on the head Bollywood is not indian movies. Go see malayalam and tamil movies too.
yes indian knows the difference..go google and type indian movie...the first page would be just about...BOLLYWOOD .....and thats not the worst part....Bollywood is just commercialised films......slapstick comedy...no theme...the only good factor is the music....
watch....Tare Zameen par for gr8 messages, V ettaiyadu Vilayadu , Vaaranam Ayiram for love and destiny( its just not one of the stupid romantic movies) and hats off to Goutham Menon for his talent, Bombay, Thalapathy( for those who say Rajanikanth is a bad actor), Devasuram, Udayananu Tharam, kireedam, Oru vadakkan Veeragadha,...,Rang de Basanti,Swades,Don (new) INDIAN MOVIES ARE NOT FULLY ROMANTIC OR HERO WORSHIPPING,,,,IT GOT ITS ON THEMES, ITS OWN STYLE...the lest is endless
He chooses every word carefully! Very humble and modest too...
Sholay is a total classic. Roja was the first film I saw, so it's really close to my heart. Do watch it in Tamil, though. Too many Hindi dubs become people's introduction to Indian films and it's saddening. As rageeth says, there are many languages in India, and accordingly, many sides/faces. One should do one's best to experience them all!
It depends mate .... like Rahman said ...its not bollywood ..its indian movies ..and they are made in more than 4 different languages in very different genres.... so if u lemme know what genres ur into .. that wud be helpful to suggest a movie for ya....
dhoom 2 ??? ur kiddin me rite ?
Michael i should say u must watch a movie called "3Idiots".
@michael777b : watch taare zameen par by aamir khan
Hey mannn...indian movies are of many kinds..Bollywood(hindi),Kollywood(tamil),Tollywood(telugu),Malluwood(malayalam)...a must watch...emmm...there are a lot...bollywood is just commercial with no gud story...u may try Jodha akbar....great movie...or tamil movie roja...
i think lagaan(2001) or sholay(1970s) would be the ones ...lagaan was also oscar nominated !!
@michael777b - "lagaan".. was nominated for oscars in 2001.. also has a r rahmans magnificent score in it..
A.R Rahman is a legend!
