MUMBAI: Music Maestro AR Rahman has been nominated for the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, which were announced last evening. He is nominated in the Best Music category for Danny Boyle‘s 127 Hours.
127 Hours also bagged nominations for Best Actor (Drama) and Best Screenplay.
After the success of Slumdog Millionaire, Boyle had once again teamed up with Fox Searchlight Pictures, producer Christian Colson, writer Simon Beaufoy and Rahman for the action drama starring James Franco.
The film is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston‘s (played by Franco) adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah.
Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued.
Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers (Clemence Poesy), family, and the two hikers (Amber Tamblyn and Kate Mara) he met before his accident; wondering if they will be the last two people he ever had the chance to meet.
127 Hours is slated for release in India in January 2011 by Fox Star India.
Fox Star Studios India CEO Vijay Singh said, "AR Rahman being nominated once again for his brilliant music score in the film makes it very special for every Indian. We are looking forward to the January release and believe that the Indian audiences will appreciate this film just like Slumdog Millionaire.
