When you think of Tamil cinema, the first thing that comes to mind is Rajnikanth. The extravagant action-packed movies are a rage in the south. Another thing that shines in the movie from the Tamil industry is the soundtracks that back these movies. Soundtracks sound even better when composed by the musical maestro A.R.Rehman. The genius that he is, selecting only a few of his songs to make up a list almost sounds unfair. We have purposely avoided selecting songs from the very famous soundtracks of Roja, Bombay, Indian, etc since they are already very well known. If you want to listen to his Tamil songs online is the way to go. Here is a list of top songs in Tamil by A.R.Rehman.
- Irumbile Oru Idhaiyam: Rehman is one of those talented composers that make sure that the soundtrack of a movie goes with its central theme. This song from Enthiran is a proper example of this. We were astonished by how he made the song sound very robotic and without forgetting the classical melodies.
- Anjali Anjali: Part of the soundtrack of the movie Duet, this song was made in collaboration with legendary director K. Balachander. Tasteful music composed by A. R. Rehman combined with soulful vocals of the superstar singer S. P. Balasubrahmanyam, this sound was appreciated and was a big hit.
- Yenna Solla Pogirai: A.R.Rehman is a master when it comes to choosing the right singer for the right song. Shankar Mahadevan mesmerized us with his soulful voice in this song from Kandukondain Kandukondain. It was picturized on Tabu and Ajithkumar. Shankar Mahadevan also won a National Award for this song.
- Aalaporaan Thamizhan: This song from the movie Mersal starring Vijay, is the perfect choice to describe Tamil culture, traditions and achievements. This song is now an anthem for the young. You’ll want to listen to this one on a loop and you can download latest songs of A.R.Rehman online.
- Verithanam: From the soundtrack of the upcoming movie Bigil starring Vijay, this song is one of the newest Tamil releases of A.R. Rehman. So far this is the only song that has been released and is sung by Vijay himself. You should try listening to it before you download latest songs.
