It is not that A.R. Rahman is the best music composer the Hindi film industry has ever seen. There were several talented composers who did not get the great opportunity of showcasing their talent to the world. The film music has grown up on their music and every music lover has hummed their compositions on day or the other.

Who will forget S.D. Burman’s Saiyan Dil Mein Aana Re (Bahar), Thandhi Hawayein (Nau Jawan), Tum Na Jane (Sazaa), Rote Rote Guzar Gayi (Buzdil), Jayen to Jayen Kahan (Taxi Driver), Dukhi Man Mere (Funtoosh), Chhod Do Aanchal (Paying Guest), Waqt Ne Kiya Kya (Kaagaz Ke Phool), Ek Ladki Bheeegi Bhagi Se (Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi), Haal Kaisa Hai Janaab Ka (Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi), Dekhi Zamane Ki Yaari (Kaagaz Ke Phool), Khoya Khoya Chand (Kala Bazar), Dil Ka Bhanwar ( Tere Ghar Ke Saamne), Dil Dhal Jaye  (Guide), Saiyan Beimaan (Guide), Kya Se Kya Ho Gaya (Guide), Roop Tera Mastana  (Aradhana), Tere Mere Milan Ki (Abhimaan), Piya Bina (Abhimaan)?

Who says R.D. Burman has not contributed even one song that deserved an Oscar? Kuchh To Log Kahenge (Amar Prem), Pyar Diwana Hota Hai (Kati Patang), Tum Bin Jaoon Kahan (Pyar Ka Mausam), Yeh Shaam Mastani (Kati Patang), Dum Maro Dum (Hare Rama Hare Krishna), Piya Tu Abto Aaja (Caravan), Chingari Koi Bhadke (Amar Prem), Chura Liya Hai Tumne (Yaadon Ki Baarat), Ek Main Aur Ek Too (Khel Khel Mein), Kya Hua Tera Wada (Hum Kisise Kum Naheen), O Mere Dil Ke Chain (Mere Jeevan Saathi), O Meri Sona Re (Teesri Manzil), Mere Naina Sawan Bhadon (Mehbooba), Raat Kali Ek Khwab Mein Aai (Buddha Mil Gaya), Yeh Kya Hua (Amar Prem) to name a few, defenitely deserve an Oscar.

Kalyanji-Anandji pair has immensely contributed to the Hindi films. Mera Jeevan Kora Kagaz (Kora Kagaz), Aur Is Dil Main Kya Rakha Hai (Imandar), Aap Jaisa Koi Meri Zindgi Main (Qurbani), O Sathi Re Tere Bina (Muqaddar Ka Sikander), Salam-e-Ishq (Muqaddar Ka Sikander), Zindgi Ka Safar(Safar), Yeh Mera Dil Pyar (Don), Pardesiyon Se Na Akhiyan Milana (Jab Jab Phool Khile), Khai Ke Pan Banaras Wala (Don) to name a few.

Laxmikant-Pyarelal pair’s hit composing for the past 40 years are several. To name a few: Ek Do Teen… (Tejaab), Achha To Hum Chalte Hain (Aan Milo Sajna), Bindia Chamkegi (Do Raaste), Chabi Kho Jaye (Bobby), Chithi Aayee Hai Watan se (Naam), Ek Pyar Ka Naghma Hai (Shor), Satyam Shivam Sundaram (Satyam SHivam Sundaram), Sawan Ka Mahina (Milan), Hum Bane Tum Bane (Ek Duje Ke Liye).

The newcomers have also contributed much to the music world. They all didn’t have what Rahman has, the opportunity.

Rahman has talent along with great opportunity to compose for a film that teh Academy would like to consider for an Oscar. Other musicians did not get that opportunity, but defenitely ruled the hearts of several music buffs in the country, which is a big award. Their names are etched in the histroy of Indian film music and nobody can ever fade them. But still congratulations to Rahman for utilising his opportunity and talent.
