"Roja" (Tamil: ரோஜா; English: Rose) is a 1992 Tamil political thriller film directed by Mani Ratnam. The film was subsequently dubbed in Hindi, Marathi, Malayalam, Kannada, and Telugu.
The film won three National Film Awards, including Best Film on National Integration, catapulting Ratnam to national acclaim. The film also gained international acclaim with its nomination for Best Film at the Moscow International Film Festival.
The film was recently re-released for international audiences in light of the growing fear of terrorist attacks across the world. This film was so popular during that time, that terrorists in Kashmir, got a copy of the movie in Tamil.
The film's successful and acclaimed score and soundtrack were composed by A. R. Rahman, who debuted in Tamil as a music director with this film. This soundtrack is among the "10 Best Soundtracks" of all time listed by TIME magazine, issued in 2005.

Minmini is a South Indian film playback singer. She is remembered especially for the song "Chinna Chinna Aasai" from Roja, the debut work of film composer A. R. Rahman.
Though she is a Malayali, most of her memorable songs are in Tamil, most of them composed by Rahman and Ilaiyaraaja. Her hit Malayalam songs include "Souparnikamritha" from Kizhakkunarum Pakshi, "Oonjal Urangi", and "Neelaraavi" from Kudumbasametham. She has lent her voice to hit songs from films including Karuththamma (1994), and Thevar Magan (1992).
Her big break came in 1992 when she sang "Chinna Chinna Aasai" for the film Roja. It took Minmini to international fame, along with A.R. Rahman. The song which set a new trend in the music world was remade in Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi and Minmini sang them too.
Minmini has sung around 2,000 film songs in seven different languages: Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Kannada, Oriya and Baduga. In Malayalam she became the favourite of music directors like Johnson, Raveendran, S. P. Venkatesh, Bombay Ravi and Mohan Sithara.
She has received many awards, including the Singapore State Government Award, Tamil Nadu State Film Award for Best Female Playback, Filmfare Award, Cinema Express Award, Film Fans Association Award (Telugu), Kerala Film Chamber Award and SUMU Award, to name a few.
Minmini has been married to Joy Mathew since 1995. Joy is a keyboardist who worked in Unni Menon's troupe and later in a Dubai radio station.
Like Mini, Joy also got inspiration from the choir in the church in his native place, Koratty. Minmini now is the mother of two -- Allan Joy Mathew and Anna Keerthana.
Minmini lost her voice in 1992 on a stage show in London. She was unable to even speak for six months. She regained her voice in 1995 after undergoing vocal cord treatment. With her husband's encouragement, she is now making a comeback to the music industry and has also opened a music school in Cochin. Minmini also anchors for TV channels.
