In the early stages, he composed music for documentaries and now he's working for the biggest films of all-time. Rahman started his movie career with Maniratnam's classic Roja. Post Roja, Rahman has done many movies but Roja stood in the first place. Apart from Maniratnam's taking, his music and score stood as another pillar for the success of the film.

Rahman's collaboration with few of his favorite singers created wonders in the musical markets.

2. DIL SE

After entering the Bollywood industry with Rangeela, Rahman joined hands with Maniratnam for his second film in Hindi. Then, Dil Se happened. This movie was a box-office failure, but a musical blockbuster. It is always reminiscing listening to the Chaiyya Chaiyya song.


3. ROCKSTAR

Rockstar is the modern-day cult classic album. It is the brainchild of the genius director Imtiaz Ali. Each song of this album drives the story forward, and this happened only because of Rahman sir. Also, Rockstar stood as one of the most influential films made in the past decade.

He created a magical feeling to experience the love between Madhavan and Shalini. Rahman breathed life to the characters with his music, and Sakhi is the best album of the 2000s. Sakhi is Mani sir's another masterpiece.


5. Bombay

Bombay is another collaboration with Maniratnam. Rahman performed Bombay theme music in many live concerts and received tremendous applause every time. Vurike Chilaka song is like a bottle of wine.


6. INDIAN

7. RANG DE BASANTI

Rang De Basanti is an all-time well-made patriotic film. Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and music by AR Rahman. Aamir Khan, Siddharth, Sharman Joshi, and Madhavan played the leads. This album consists of ten tracks, and Rahman composed most of them with modern instruments. Masti Ke Paathshaala and Roobaroo stood in chartbusters list over the years.


8. YE MAAYA CHESAVE

Gautham Menon's all-time classical film Ye Maaya chesave has a special place in our hearts for its beautifully written moments glued with Rahman's music. Listening to Ye Maaya Chesave album offers solace to our minds. Mr. Rahman only can do such beautiful work.


Now-a-days, it's not an easy job to give a successful track in a single language, but Rahman sir gave successful songs in multiple languages. May he continue giving beautiful songs and astounding scores to please the audience and his millions of fans.


On this day, Team 9by10 wishes the Mozart of Madras a very happy birthday.
