I’ve always got mixed response for my music: Rahman
Mumbai, Sep 6 PTI : From “Roja” to “Rang De Basanti”, AR Rahman’s music struck with his listeners, but the award-winning composer of the Academy feels he has mostly received a mixed response for his tracks.
The film career of Rahman took off when he composed for “Roja” of Mani Ratnam and since he was the most wanted musician of the country.
Some of his memorable compositions have been made in films such as Bombay, Dil Se, Taal, Lagaan, Swades, Guru, Jodhaa Akbar, Rockstar, Enthiran and “Slumdog” Millionaire “.
“I always had a mixed answer, when ‘Roja’ came in, people said I could not stand more than three months, so ‘Bombay’ came, people said what it is, Rockstar ‘,’ Slumdog Millionaire ‘Mom arrived, I accept it all.
“Internally, I try to be honest with my work and I still do,” Rahman told PTI when asked about the audience who does not like his music in some movies.
He says that composing music as a trade is often not considered an excellent career move because many believe it has no credibility.
“Everyone says do your job and then do part time music (work) .We want to do more and more profession as a search .When you look at the world scenario … I think creative professionals have more (to excel professionally) than other things (referring to the profession). “
Rahman, who is awaiting the release of his film entitled “One Heart: The AR Rahman Concert Film,” is eager to support more music movies.
“We focus on movies based on music and we can play more music to people,” he says.
The 50-year-old composer believes there is a process of producing music movies, which he learned by watching Hollywood movies.
“There is a process of making musical films. I have done two or three abroad, they have a script in place, they make the songs first, they make a workshop, they act actors and sing, so the chart is set up a smaller level, and then they shoot so that they do not miss out on higher level, “he said.
“The Phantom of the Opera” by Andrew Lloyd Webber was good, I saw the actors enter and repeat for days. So the process needs to be tested and tested because a lot of money is put in place. “
“A Heart: A R Rahman Concert Film”, online tomorrow, shows how the concerts are conceptualized and the stories behind the scene.
In the film, Rahman will be seen in several places, including his concerts.
The proceeds of the film will go to Rahman’s One Heart Foundation to help former musicians and their families.
