Trivia


 

    Album

  • The original Tamil film album marked music director A.R. Rahman's debut. He first met the film's director, Mani Ratnam, at the award party of a commercial for Leo Coffee, for which Rahman had composed the jingle. Mani Ratnam's cousin, Sharada, and her husband Trilok had produced the commercial and introduced Rahman to him. Due to some differences with his regular music director, Ilaiyaraaja, Mani Ratnam approached Rahman, liked what he played and signed him up for this film.
  • This was the Hindi-dubbed version of the Tamil movie by the same name.
  • The soundtrack for this film was listed among the Top 10 soundtracks in the Time magazine's 2005 All-Time 100 Movies List.[1]
  • The National Film Award jury was tied between Ilaiyaraaja for "Thevar Magan" and A.R. Rahman for this film, for the award for Best Music Direction. It was director Balu Mahendra, who headed the jury board that year, who cast the tie-breaking, deciding vote in A.R. Rahman's favour. Balu Mahendra, who had employed Ialaiyraaja as the music director for all his films starting from 1980, later told Ilaiyaraaja about his tie-breaking vote. Their collaboration continued till Balu Mahendra's last film "Thalaimuraigal" (2013).[MR19]

    Song

  • Chhoti Si Aasha - I - A.R. Rahman had composed this song as a sad number but adapted it to record a happy song based on Mani Ratnam's suggestion.
  • Chhoti Si Aasha - I - Singer Minmini was in poor health and not in a position to sing when by A.R. Rahman had asked her to sing the Hindi version of her extremely popular Tamil song. Minmini had asked A.R. Rahman to give the song to some other singer, but the music director had waited for two months till Minmini recovered and was in a position to record the song.[MR10]
  • Rukmani Rukmani - This was the first song in which Rahman broke the mukhda-antara song pattern.
  • Roja Jaaneman - I - Anand - Milind drew liberally from this song to compose "Tere Liye Jaanam" ("Suhaag", 1994).[2]
