Aabhi Ja: Just a 0:30 sample but sure sounds promising. Will most likely be ordering this. Right now, salary is still garma garam new in the bank account , after a few days.

When listening to particular songs, we often question whether it was tailor made for someone else. Rahman Ji tends to experiment with different voices a lot for one composition. Knowing him, he might have 10 different versions for one song. Sometimes the song that makes the final cut doesn't suit that particular singer but with "Kismat Se" I conclude that it was ONLY made for Shreya Ji.
The other aspect of Rahman Ji's recordings are that he allows singers to improvise on his melodies thats why every singer he works with say they feel at ease with him when interviewed. Newcomer's must always feel anxious, but Rahman Ji is the best launching new singers. He always pulls it off by giving them special songs. Only after do the rest of the contemporaries music directors start chasing these singers because Rahman Ji has taken the gamble so they feel theres reliability.
But recently Rahman Ji has been picking up a lot of bedroom musicians thanks to Youtube Natalie Di Luccio, Jonita Gandhi, sid sriram (?) etc.
Let me clear the misconception! Below are some artists thought be launched by Rahman Ji:
Javed Ali - Viju Shah
Shakthisree Gopalan - Vijay Antony
Aaryan Dinesh Kanagaratnam - Vijay Antony
Meenal Jain - Daniel B. George
Neeti Mohan - Vishal and Shekhar
Nooran Sisters - Sneha Khanwalkar

I was wondering what you guys were talking about, and then googled 'Kismat Se' and found it on gaana.com. Its been on repeat all morning!
Sadhakallahu Nabiyul Kareem - A R Rahman

Take out the synth+guitar+beats, the song will fall flat. There's something very catchy and lovely about the chord progressions and backing that makes the song so addictive.

The wait is over!
Yet another enchanting and haunting track! Whattay a week? Kochadaiiyaan and now this... It will be on loop for infinite days. Just when Rahman Ji was deviating from his comfort zone, this song arrives as a total consolation. I will cherish this moment forever! When a song impacts us we remember exactly where and when we heard it. Even when the teaser released, I knew straight away I will be in for a life changing treat.
The way the harp, flute, and guitar have been executed should be an example for other composers on how to amalgamate sounds of Indian Classical, Medieval Folk and Latino styles of music. On top of this, the dholak adds a rural flavour which was last represented by Rahman Ji in “Heer” JTHJ. I wasn’t prepared for this hint of Punjab half way through but that adds a lot of sparkle to this already shining song.
Lastly, Jonita Gandhi *Take A Bow Misses*

Well, it is not news that Mani's next film will feature Rahman as the composer. But in the same article it is mentioned that
Kamal Hassan and Saif Ali Khan team up for a Tamil-Hindi political thriller, with a score by A R Rahman.
After four back-to-back films with composer Ghibran, Kamal Haasan is all set to collaborate with A R Rahman for his next film, Thalaivan Irukkiran.
A bilingual (Tamil and Hindi), the political thriller is titled Amar Hain in Hindi, and will have Saif Ali Khan share screen space with Kamal Haasan.
Kamal Haasan and A R Rahman last worked together 15 years ago -- for K S Ravikumar's 2000 dramedy Thenali.
Not sure if this is good or bad. While Rahman delivered chartbusters for both the Hassan movies that he has worked for ("Indian" and "Thenali"), they weren't his best. You always get the feeling that these two are not great friends although Rahman did grace Hassan's "50th year in cinema" celebrations and Hassan had a few good words to say about Rahman. They were going to work together for "Marmayogi" in 2008 but unfortunately that project was dropped. Let's see if this project materializes.

Kamal's movies in the past 10 years or so haven't had much scope for music, with few memorable songs, though Uthama Villain had a pretty good soundtrack.
