Trivia


 

    Album

  • This is A.R. Rahman's debut album. He first met Mani Ratnam at the award party of a commercial for Leo Coffee for which ARR had composed the jingle. Mani Ratnam's cousin Sharada and her husband Trilok has produced the commercial and introduced Rahman to him. Due to some differences with Ilayaraja, Mani Ratnam approached Rahman, liked what he played and signed him up for the film.
  • This is the Hindi-dubbed version of the Tamil movie by the same name.
  • The soundtrack for this film was listed among the Top 10 soundtracks in the Time magazine's 2005 All-Time 100 Movies List.[1]
  • The National Film Award jury was tied between Ilaiyaraaja for "Thevar Magan" and A.R. Rahman for this flm, for the award for Best Music Direction. It was director Balu Mahendra, who headed the jury board that year, who cast the tie-breaking, deciding vote in A.R. Rahman's favour. Balu Mahendra, who employed Ialaiyraaja as the music director for all his films starting from 1980, later told Ilaiyaraaja about his tie-breaking vote. Their collaboration continued till Balu Mahendra's last film "Thalaimuraigal" (2013).[MR19]

    Song

  • Choti Si Aasha - I - A.R. Rahman had composed this pathbreaking song as a sad number but tweaked it to a happy song based on Mani Ratnam's suggestion.
  • Choti Si Aasha - I - When called by A.R. Rahman to sing the Hindi version of her extremely popular Tamil song, singer Minmini was in poor health and unable to sing. Minmini asked A.R. Rahman to have another singer sing her signature song but the music director waited for two months till Minmini got getter and was in a position to record the song.[MR10]
  • Rukmani Rukmani - This is the first song in which Rahman broke the mukhda-antara pattern.
  • Roja Jaaneman - I - Anand - Milind drew liberally from this A.R. Rahman song to compose "Tere Liye Jaanam" ("Suhaag", 1994).
