A.R.Rahman possesses the art of composing songs that just pierce your heart and touch your soul in a very special manner. While listening to his tunes, you feel that the tune was developing inside you all the while and a magician has come about and made a song out of it. It is that feeling of instant connect that makes his songs so special.
Just listen to his latest offering called ‘Kun Faaya Kun’ from the movie ‘Rockstar’ – joining him in the song are Javed Ali and Mohit Chauhan. The song and the picturization are beautiful. What melody, what rhythm.. I have loved all Rahman compositions of this genre – be it Piya Haji Ali from Fiza, Arziyaa from Delhi 6 or for that matter, Noor-Un-Ala from Meenaxi.. but this song is in another league altogether. Give it a listen, and you’ll know why.
The story behind Kun Faya Kun is that when Allah made the world in 6 days, he said these words.. Kun Faaya Kun and the universe came into being.
