Roja is A R Rahman’s first film, Tamil version was released in 1992. The movie was dubbed in Telugu and Hindi as “Roja”. The Hindi version was released in 1994. A R Rahman was awarded the Best Music Director award in the Tamil Nadu State film awards, Best music director award in Filmfare (Tamil films) award, R D Burman-Filmfare award for best new talent in Hindi films in 1995 for the Hindi version of Roja & Best music director National award for 1992.

The soundtrack features score and 6 songs composed by A. R. Rahman, with lyrics in the Tamil language by Vairamuthu. Songs such as “Rukkumani” had a loud thumping feel and became ingrained in pop culture. Also many new singers were introduced to the Tamil music scene. Time magazine’s noted film critic, Richard Corliss stated that the “astonishing debut work parades Rahman’s gift for alchemizing outside influences until they are totally Tamil, totally Rahman.” Including the album on a list of Time magazine’s “10 Best Soundtracks” of all time in 2005, he admitted to failing to properly check facts on a lyrics website when describing two songs using dubbed Hindi titles on his article. The soundtrack also found success in its many dubbed versions released in subsequent years.
