The International Film Music Critics Association has announced its list of excellence in musical scoring for 2009. Our own A R Rahman has been nominated in the category of Best Original Score for a Comedy Film for his excellent score in his film ‘Couples Retreat’ which marked his entry into Hollywood.
‘Couple Retreat’ music was launched in India in December. The song NaNa in the album has been short listed for 82nd Academy Awards nominations. Couple Retreat also has a Tamil song ‘Kurukuru Kann’ for which the lyric was written by A R Rahman himself.
The nominations by the IMFCA, which has members from around the world, reflect the Association’s global perspective.
