A R Rehman says JAI HO to Heath Ledger at the Oscars!!

with 2 comments

So here we are. We have finally landed on the planet Oscar. “Mozart Of Madras”, oops… Mr. A. R. Rehman has done something which atleast Aamir Khan will be proud of 😉 (No harm meant to Aamir though). After costume designer Bhanu Athaiya and director Satyajit Ray, our Mozart is the 3rd Indian to have won this coveted trophy.

But in all the hype of Indians storming the Oscar party, aren’t we forgetting something?

Just try to remember the person who played a really masterpiece of a villainious role. Yes, you are getting closer to the name.

Need a bit more help?

He died of drug overdose.

Now you got it.

I am talking about (Sir) Heath Ledger. Why “sir”?? Oh come on…he was just awesome. Who can forget his lip smacking dialogues in The Dark Knight?


Naah…this should be a better picture for all of us to relate…


As I always expected (after watching the movie), Joker has finally become the “Ace of All Cards”. Heath Ledger, playing the Joker was just awesome. He was so creepy, perfect and dark. Boy, “Why so serious?” has become a cult statement in the real sense.

And was he not a real mix of GOOD & EVIL in the movie??


I bet he was.

Below is a short take from my earlier post recommending an Oscar for him –


…Now lets talk about the awards which need to be bestowed upon the movie and its characters. I recommend an Oscar for Mr. Heath Ledger. Or make it two. One for the best performance of the year and another, a special one for giving one of the greatest performances in a negative role…

…But even if Late Heath Ledger does not get it, it would not make a difference as this was the first time that the Joker had become the Ace of the pack of cards…

So I got my call right this time. Shouldn’t I be in the Oscar jury the next time? I think so J

And I swear, if I have compare my happiness in the 2 cases, I would say that I am much more happy for Heath Ledger getting the Oscar than Rehman getting 2 or 3.

But still, Rehman is a magician.

So thanks Mr. Rehman, for bringing something really cool for us. And Mr Heath…may your soul rest in peace and ‘Jai Ho’ for you

Jai Ho!

Jai Ho!!

  1. I think we should mention Gulzar saab in the same vein!

    And Resul Pookutty too!

    I am happy for Ledger. The dark ‘good’ image strikes the right note.
