The Top Ten

1
A.R. Rehman
No doubts Ilayaraja, RD Burman, MSV, Nadeem Shravan are great musicians but limited to particular region or language. But A. R Rahman, he unified India by music, and taking to the universe as well. He is amazing wonder of music world.
He is International competitor, he is in top 3 in any part of India, I would agree the rating for bollywood. When it comes to all India, he should be number 1.
Listen to his first mesmerizing music of Roja(1992), anybody will understand how strong influence it created into the Indian Music. Most Bollywood audience listen to his music by 1993 or 1994, and hence the musicians got influenced by his music partnered the innovation & trend setting.
Being a south Indian, I don't know about musics of RD Burman or Nadeem Shrawan. I would say Ilayaraja is musical genius without any comparision. But his music is limited to the region as similar to RD buramn or any other regional musicians. But Rahman, he is unique. He proved his skill all over the world. I would rank him second or third any language, but he is the musician of the world. Every human will be mesmerized of his music, every one will rate him as one of the best. He is the only musician can be compared to any musical genius regardless of language, and country. His success in Kollywood, Bolywood, and Hollywood with highest awards in these Industry proved his excellence. One may be the best in the industry or language or region. But he is one of the best everywhere. If you through out your ego, every one who listened to his music accept.
I love you A. Are as well as your music. You are the king of music no one can beat you because your music gives the feel as well as soul.
[Newest]That really this amazing music by A. R rehman sir

2Ilaiyaraaja
Layaraja the worlds best music composer. When the presentation of his music very critical. He is the proud of india. He perform 100 present pure music. He will touch use his music all language people. I will hope he is the best in india and all over the world. We will not remember his presenting time. At the time technology less time. He is not believe the technology. A.R. rahman only use the computer music. But ilayaraja present the pure and new tune and use real instruments. He will compose 900above films. Any composers will not touch his achievements. Ilayaraja is the god of music. He is the inspiration of all indian composers A.R. rahman also. He will not get the oscer award so, ilayaraja is the oscer man. He will grow with his achievements the height of himalaya. He is the god of music. He will perform the languages of tamil, hindi, marati, malayalam, telugu, kannada. He is score top back round score. He is the best composer. Other A.R. rahman, msv, laxmikant pyarilal also the music directors. But ilayaraja the music composer. He is the king of celestial music. So he called music mastro. He will work real, having salery. He will grow the indian cinema in world level. He is the god of music any one composer will not get ilayaraja's stage. He will get our soul. I love ILAYARAJA'S MUSIC. He is the god

Ilayaraja is a greatest... Soul touch musician in the world.
[Newest]He is the king of music and god of music. don't compare to AR rehman please. because His music touches directly to the heart. No one can compose like this kind of music yet to 100 years.

3RD. Burman
Most innovative music director in bollywood. Just see the variation in his music. Each score is so much different than other. Comparing him with LP, Kalyanji Anandji, SJ, Salil Choudary etc at least makes sense, but it is really sad to see that people are comparing this maestro with Nadeem-Shravan, A.R. rehman etc.
Best music director ever in India. Modern music directors make remixes of his songs. An award known as RD Burman award is given in filmfare. From here it's clear that how great is he?
He has to be the greatest musician of all time in Hindi Film Industry undoubtedly. Second best obviously his father, the great SD Burman. Then we can think about A R Rahman.

Rabindranath should not be considered here since he is in different league.
[Newest]Rd. Burman the janak of music! He is the samrat of music

4Nadeem Shravan
He is the best music director ever in India. If you have doubt then search his film list in which he has composed the music. He was unbeatable from 90s to nearly 2005 & now also he is producing mind blowing compositions.
There is no any word need to tell about these great musician. But as a formality there are greater than great. Since composed "Aashiqui" till now, there is no any single song / musician beat them.
He should be at number 1. AR Rehman is never comparable to Nadeem Shravan. If you have doubt then just search the songs ^^ films in which he has worked as music director. Maximum biggest hits from 90s to till now is of Nadeem Shravan. Please vote for him. Except RD Burman no one is even comparable to him.

5Yuvan Shankar Raja
He deserves a place in the top 3, opportunities and exposure plays a vital role
If his music is heard by the north indians then they will get addicted to his soulful music
Oru naalil song from pudhupettai is a classical example for his latent talent, just here it once
Really yuvan touches my soul... His best album is "Pudupettai"... One of the Most talented music directors but he is not good in choosing good movies.. He must concentrate the story and should give the best albums... From the few years his magical soulful music missing a lot... He needs a comeback...
He is best but, many more big projects working with rahman sir then how to prove himself, he is only give the emotional into music related the situation
He is only after illayaraja sir, rahman sir always good but recently not well because these are not big project he give best music in his big project only,

YUVAN IS ONLY GIVE ALL TYPES OF SONGS BIG HIT
YUVAN YUVAN YUVAN PLEASE TAKE TO TOP 3 LIST
[Newest]I love you yuvan. Your music makes me survive from up and downs of my life. you are the best. Please give more music like this. Don't give up

6Himesh Reshamiya
He gave 36 Hit songs back to back in just 6 months.. He is the best music director of India.. The man with never give up attitude.. He is not only music director - singer but he is also an actor, story writer, lyricist..
Himesh is the one and only Indian rockstar, I'm really mad when I listen himesh songs, his best quality is one song difrent when compare to another, he s the first indian who performed in wembly arena and many more...
His tunes are amazing. He is innovative. I know there are many others in the industry who holds few of the best compositions of their times, but what is best abt HR is that he never lets his stake holders go with their albums less than mediocre. He delivers what is needed. Thumbs up Himesh... You Rock.

But in recent times, I personally feel that other things have distracted him a lot. Those songs which he has sung, if were sung by other singers, they would have done wonders. Reason for saying so is that, not everyone can hear same sound again and again. There needs to be a limit. If he aligns his skills rightly, there will be a Tsunami of Music... Yeah 36 hits in 6 months is a testimony

Best ever composer of melodious songs

10Rajesh Roshan
Many people don't exactly know that many of the top romantic hits right from the 80s have been composede by Mr Rajesh Roshan... Which includes Dil kya kare from julie den ghar se nikalte hi in d 90s and songs from koyla and the list goes on and on...
Rajesh roshan was good earlier, but now his music is older and not interesting
I Think Should be First Rating.

Best music director. Never copy any Tune from anyone. His tunes are always loaded with full energy and also he is a Great singer, Lyricist too.

The best and most happening music director. With loads of talent he is undoubtedly god gifted. His songs are awesome, sweet, classic etc etc.

12Shankar Jaikishan
What! This is not the place he deserves... He should be number 1 Music director... I am born in 80's and Shankar-Jaikishan belong to late 50's, 60's and 70's. But still I can find freshness in their music. They were trend setters, introduced western Jazz to Indian Music, Music of theirs was popular world wide. Many Hollywood movies used their music. King of experimental music. What else should I tell of them. Guys. Listen to their songs first... They didn't get the recognition, they should have got... Many great music directors are fan of these two... Laxmikanth pyarelal, Nadeem Shravan... Mohd Rafi is also a great fan of these two... Please just listen to his songs. I am sure everyone would agree to what I state...
The best! Some of the ones who made it to the top 10 are there only because the present generation participates in polls of these type. The best Hindi film music was in the period 1950-1970 and only 1 or 2 of the M D s who started in the late 60s have made it. S D Burman may have made it more due to the voters having heard of him due to the R D connection.
One of the best music directors. Gave out tons of hit with singers like Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar and even Kishore Kumar
[newest]
Yes most people have very short memory. Most people never dare to go to the depth of thing. Can you forget Shanker- Jaikishen?. They deserves the No1. music director of India in every sense. Now bring to your memory songs like "Mera Juta hai Japani", "Tere man ki Ganga", "Sajan re Jhoot mat bolo". Take any song from theirs from 1949 - 75, in every song you can see your own voice. They alone deserves number 1 music director of India, nobody else. The music directors who were ranked 1-10, all of them were the fans of SJ. Even iliyaraja has justifiably accepts SJ as complete music director. Oh my God! How you can forget SJ. Moreover, we are also forgetting talented stars like C. Ramachandra, Hemant Kumar, K.L. saigal etc. Who have done wonderful works Bollyywood. - DR B B MISRA

13Jatin Lalit
The duo were best for melody song... Those melody are hard to get in modern music
Has offered the most successful songs so far

14Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy
Dude, this list is just meaningless
I place Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy after A.R.Rahman.
This is simply not fair to see this trio on number 16 in this list. 1st of all there can't be a comparison between the olds & new ones... Because of so many things, like old ones like R D Verman etc didn't have these advanced instruments so we should make 2 lists.

Then if you compare between the new ones then there is a very strong fight between A R Rehman & Shankar-Ehsan-Loy. Just leaving them on a 19-21 of almost equal score. you can't put himesh on no. 5! Don't just look at the hits... Look at the quality as well!

Uncomparable music composer by nature and yet to replace him by any one.
Revolutinized Tamil film music - made music understandable and enjoyable by all levels of people with his simple melodious tunes. Gave prime importance to Tamil lyrics. His haunting melodies still are the most heard even today. Gave freedom to the Tamil people who were thrust with complicated carnatic music.

22Naushad
I completely agree with the earlier comment. How come musician like Nausha saab is below on 19 when I think he should have been in the first 3. Its an unjustified list. Anyway I think people should listen music of Naushad saab, Madan Mohan Ji, O P Nair Saab, Laksmikant Payarelal Ji ( many more to name, sorry if I have missed some great names ) and then start commenting and voting.Nausad Saab is the one who brought the best of Rafi saab.
I am surprised to see the list. Some useless music directors are above the genius Naushad. Probably many people of today do not know the true music.
It is really shocking me to see this the number of Mr. Naushad who was the torch bearer of Indian Music (Shastria Sangeet). I think in any case, or any list, he should be at number 01. If we skipped Naushad and Muhammad Rafi, 99% Indian Music will finish.

26Madan Mohan
A great composer of indian film industry with whom LATA MANGESHKAR gave her the best.
I'm born in 80s, but recognized him so late. He didn't have any training of music, but it was his soul, which created so many untouchable arts that you can't even imagine. It is so painful seeing him at no. 24. He is uncrowned king of Indian music industry.
Madan JI undoubtedly is the best music director, Bollywood has seen. He was class. No comparison. Jaidevji himself a great music director endorsed this by saying that MADAN MOHAN's music was the best he had come across. He was like a beautician. Give him an ordinary tune. He had ability to make it a class tune. So let's salute Madan Mohan.

The best Music Director according to me. I feel there is no one who can even come close to him. Yuvan Shankar Raja is someone who I see second to him. Unfortunately, he has not got the recognition that he deserves.
