Circa 1992, Mani Ratnam approached a young music director for his film Roja. The rest is history. A R Rahman needs no explicit introduction to Indian and Worldwide audiences. Taking Indian music to the world stage his contribution to music has been phenomenal.

The legend turns 47 today. We at the Royale took it upon us to short-list 10 of his best songs. Trust me on this; it is simply not possible. There are too many good songs to choose from. We chose the below 10.

Roja JanemanRoja

Released in 1992, the song proved to be a stepping stone towards success for Rahman. The romantic track ruled millions of hearts and impressed the music lovers to a great extent. He bagged a platinum award at the MagnaSound Awards for this first film soundtrack!

Roobaroo – Rang Dey Basanti

The lively and electrifying youthful movie, Rang De Basanti had some thumping musical tracks! The whole album was, rather is amazing. The best amongst the best we feel is Roobaroo.

Yeh Jo des hai Tera – Swades

From the peppy Roobaroo to the peaceful title track of Swades; Rahman’s versatility is impeccable.

Ramta Jogi – Taal

This album is truly a musical treat to the Rahman fans, each and every track is beautifully composed, Ramta Jogi is amazing.

Hum Dum Suniyo Re – Saathiya

Oh janiyaan suniyo rey. I know, one just can’t stop humming this one. Rahman yet again received a series of awards for this movie.

Tu Hi Rey – Bombay

If there’s one word to describe this track; I say, Mesmerizing. The Tamil as well as the Hindi Version of the song is equally awesome.

Patakha Guddi – Highway

This track is nothing but magic; a masterpiece by Rahman.

Khwaja Mere Khwaja – Jodha Akbar

Don’t make me explain the tranquility of this song. Just enjoy it.

Jai Ho – Slumdog Millionaire

My reckoning, he didn’t get the Oscar for this song alone; rather he got that for his contribution in the world of music. Need I say more?

Naadan Parindey – Rockstar

 Last but certainly not the least. This song is a beautiful amalgamation of heavy guitar riffs with the melodious vocals of Mohit Chauhan and A R Rahman.

This was our list of Rahman’s Top 10. I am 200% sure that the list you generate will have a completely different set of songs. Yeah, such is his work. Feel free to comment and share your thoughts with us.

An avid writer with a debut novel in making. Yes, I do write poems and love composing songs on my Guitar. A total movie freak and in love with Chelsea!! By the way, I am an Instrumentation Engineer too, who loves to calibrate but with the pens, keyboard characters and the guitar strings.
