Oscar shower for AR Rahman
Oscar winning music maestro A.R Rahman has been once again nominated for “Best Original Song” for the film ‘Couples Retreat’ in the 82nd Academy Awards.
A.R. Rahman made his debut into composing music for American romantic comedy film “Couples Retreat”. The song “Na Na” has been nominated for “Best Original Song” which seems to be a debut of his 6 year old son Alim. “Na Na” has definitely proved quite lucky for Rahman, as little Alim has given the vocals in the song.
For ‘Couples Retreat’, A.R. Rahman has conjured up the sounds of a tropical island oasis fusing the laid-back rhythms of island music along with his gift for creating golden melodies. The opportunity to work on Couples Retreat was a welcome challenge for Rahman who created a score that complements the film’s light-hearted tone with a hint of his signature “Indian” sound.
Saregama India Ltd. is one of the first Indian music companies to release a Hollywood album by Indian composer A.R Rahman.
“We are hopeful that Rahman will come back home with another Oscar,” said a company spokesperson.
‘Couples Retreat’ is directed by Peter Billingsley and stars Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau, Malin Akerman, Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell and Faizon Love.
