Buy it... if you desire a challenging score that competently emulates the aggressive brutality, somber desperation, and euphoric redemption on screen with A.R. Rahman's usual touch of unconventional instrumentation.

Avoid it... if it means cutting off your arm in order to acquire it, because only a small minority of the score and the original song co-written by Rahman are really accessible in an otherwise jumbled presentation of incongruous songs and deeply troubled score.

127 Hours: (A.R. Rahman) Typically categorized as either an action or a thriller film, 127 Hours is nothing of the sort. It's horror of the most realistic variety. Filmmakers in the horror genre have tried every technique possible through the years to make audiences vomit in the aisles of theatres (William Friedkin particularly enjoyed this feat), and yet 127 Hours is one of the few films to accomplish just that without actually using cheap scare tactics or psychological trickery. Director Danny Boyle and his Slumdog Millionaire crew instead used a combination of empathy and realistic gore so effectively that even veteran viewers in screening events for 127 Hours lost the contents of their stomachs. Despite the fact that the story of this 2010 film is one of redemption, containing no villain (other than a large rock) and depicting victory over adversity of the highest order, there cannot be any denial that one single scene of gruesomely detailed self-amputation in 127 Hours dominates the entire production. It's based upon the true story of 27-year-old adventurer Aron Ralston, an experienced outdoorsman who went on a day excursion in the mountains of Utah and suffered an accident that left him wedged between a boulder and a canyon wall. After five days of exhausted water supplies and videotaping his goodbyes to his family, he decided to make the unbelievable decision to break his trapped forearm and then sever its tissues with a dull utility knife. The performance of Ralston by James Franco has been widely praised, as has been the entire film, but its audience has been understandably limited by the pivotal scene of dismemberment. A destiny toiling in the arthouse circuit and failing to recoup even a fraction of its budget is countered by the hope of success at the major awards ceremonies, a likelihood based on overwhelmingly positive critical response. Among those returning with Boyle for 127 Hours is composer Allah Rakha Rahman, whose Academy Award recognition for Slumdog Millionaire placed the famous Indian composer into the international spotlight with a sudden bang.
