Pritam Chakraborthy has continued to mesmerise me with his wonderful music. He started out with Dhoom and from then onwards he has produced musical hits like Life In a Metro, Hat Trick, Just Married, Bhagaam Bhaag, Dhoom 2, Bas Ek Pal, Woh Lamhe, Apna Sapna Money Money, Naksha, Pyaar Ke Side Effects, Ankahee, Gangster, Fight Club, Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena, Garam Masala, Chocolate: Deep Dark Secrets.
Pritam until somedays ago was my favorite music composer of the present times. But when I realised that Pritam belonged to the Anu-Malik School Of Plagiarism. My respect for him as a music director shrunk.
Here’s a movietonic exclusive to expose the blatant copying of several hit tracks by Pritam. So all you Pritam fans out there, this is who the real Pritam, a plain and simple copy-cat.
Check out Pritam’s copied videos ……
Music Track Number 1
Pritam’s Copied Track— Shikdum from Dhoom 2
Remember Pritam’s seductive Shikdum from Dhoom 2. Watch the video if you have forgotten.
Original track — Sikdim by Tarkan
This is the height of copying by Pritam, even Tarkan’s keyword from the song Shikdum has been used in this song. There will be no better example to showcase plagiarism at it’s best.
Music Track Number 2
Pritam’s Copied Track— “I Miss You Every Day” from Kya Love Story Hai
The songs of Kya love Story Hai have caught an audience in the youth. Pritam’s vibrant and rocking music has been a sucess to the music of Kya Love Story Hai. The first track that was telecasted on music channels was the peepy number, I Miss You Everyday. The song had me impressed. But guess what, this song is also copied.
Original Track — Alatoul by Karina
Karina is a Senegal-born Lebanese singer and ‘Alatoul’ is from her 2006 album. The beats, the music is blatantly copid by Pritam for “Miss You Everyday”. Just listen to the initial beats. Ditto same.
Music Track Number 3
Pritam’s Copied Track — Lamha Lamha from Gangster
Gangster’s music was a runaway hit. But should you credit Pritam for it’s success? Check the videos below and you will get your answer.
Original Track — Kal Shab Mein Ne Dekha by Waris Baig
Waris Baig isn’t a new face, and has entertained Pakistani music listeners for years. He has performed for various movie soundtracks, and has also released his own solo numbers. Pritam perhaps to foster Indo-Pak friendship decided to visit Waris Baig’s album Chaand Jharoke Mein and lifted his track, Kal Shaab Dekha Maine Chaand, shamelessly and transformed it into Lamha Lamha.
Music Track Number 4
Pritam’s Copied Track — Tu Hi Meri Shab Hain from Gangster
Here’s another song from Gangster. Wow Pritam is really good at lifting tracks from the West. Check out Tu Hi Meri Shab Hain, a very good song indeed.
Original track — Sacral Nirvana by Oliver Shanti & Friends
This one is an instrumental. That makes Pritam’s job easier, just get the lyrics and a song is ready.
Music Track Number 5
Pritam’s Copied Track — Wicket Bacha From Hattrick
Wicket Bacha sung by Usha Uthup was the highlight of the movie as well as the music of Hattrick. Never thought it was a copied one.
Original Track — Harry Belafonte’s Man smart(Woman Smarter)
Pritam surely listened to old English hits. He must have surely heard Harry Belafonte’s 1952 hit song , Man Smart(Woman Smarter). After-all that’s where Wicket Bacha came from.
Guess after hearing these songs you guys no longer consider Pritam a great musician. After all a great musician is one who creates his own tunes rather than copying from others. What say?
So that’s about it for today. Do keep checking this space for Part # 2 of this article.
