The films listed in this series are in chronological order and do not reflect the quality of the soundtracks mentioned in this list.
Whenever AR Rahman and Mani Ratnam get together, the expectations are understandably high. A big reason for this is their track record that has produced countless classics. Dil Se which was their fifth collaboration ended up producing some absolutely iconic songs. The best part of this soundtrack is that the tunes feel fresh to this day. Whether it is the joyous nature of Chaiyya Chaiyya or the longing we feel in Ae Ajnabi, Rahman manages to bring out different shades in him that ultimately make us connect with the characters. In a film that deals with the seven stages of love, Rahman takes us through a few of them and what a ride it proved to be.
Until next time, bye.
