Pakistani Twitter has been buzzing with a discourse on the masterpieces of AR Rahman and man can we have such wholesome content on our feeds every week, please?!
Barging in.. Taal is the epitome of movie soundtrack composition. Some riffs transcending from one song to another, creating a sense of unique songs with a baareek thread holding it all together as one. On top, I love its unbridled theatricality. AR of 90s was somethin else, man!— KAA (@khiladi2002) October 12, 2021
It all started with a single tweet from a Pakistani content creator, Ahmer Naqvi who just had an epiphany about what a masterpiece Dil se by AR Rahman is!
So, he decided to put it out there for everyone to ponder on.
After that, people started sharing their personal favorites from the music composer, weighing in on the excellence of Rahman’s works.
last time he had that creative peak, he gave us Rockstar … since then there has been multiple small peaks in good soundtracks like Highway, Ranjhana, Tamasha and Mimi and multiple peaks like Kadal and Sarkar in tamil industry— Elevated One (@OnleeAlee) October 11, 2021
They talked about how Dil se might have been one of his best compositions, but he’s created better music after that. And we couldn’t agree more!
if that was a peak (and it certainly was), then he’s had many creative peaks over the years🙏🏼— asif khan (@asayf) October 11, 2021
Another Twitter user chipped in his personal favorite after confirming if it was an AR Rahman appreciation thread!
Are we doing A.R Rahman appreciation thread? Gurus of Peace is one of the gem which brought Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and him together. One of underappreciated gem!— Ali (@X_509) October 11, 2021
Others just sang along because that’s how beautiful this piece is!
Uffff '90s nostalgia triggered ❤— Hina Khan (@cesthinakhan) October 11, 2021
🎶Dil hai to phir dard hoga
Dard hai to dil bhee hoga🎶
A user commented that she often struggles to pick a favorite between Dil se and Sathiya.
Have to say, it’s a tough call!
Debate about Dil se vs Sathiyya happens in my head free of cost https://t.co/27ag5372ts— 🌸 (@Anarkali_z) October 12, 2021
And as fans of Rahman, many of them just nodded in affirmation.
