Biography

Born in Kolkata, Pritam is the son of Prabodh Chakraborty, who runs a music school for children. Pritam gained his early training in music from his father, and learned to play the guitar while still in school. He is widely known for several hit songs in Bollywood movies.


Education

After completing his schooling from St. James' School and college education from Presidency College, Pritam joined Bangla band, Chandrabindoo. But of course before that he formed another band with his Presidency batchmates, called "Jotugriher Pakhi". They even have a cassette released to their credit at that time. In January 1993 Pritam joined the Film and Television Institute in Pune to undertake a course in sound recording and sound engineering. During this time, he was offered a chance to compose background music for a film by Hungarian filmmaker Istvaan Gaal. He also learnt African music from musicologist Kedar Avati.

Career as Composer

With Jeet

Having completed his education, Pritam moved to Mumbai to pursue a career in Bollywood. During his stay in Mumbai, he began composing ad jingles, and became friendly with a number of other young men struggling to make it big, like Shantanu Moitra, Rajkumar Hirani, Sanjay Gadhvi and Chandrajeet Ganguly, also known as Jeet, who played the guitar with Anup Jalota. , Bombay redirects here. ...

Pritam got his first break when Gadhvi was signed on to direct Tere Liye and he, in turn, signed on his friends Jeet and Pritam as music composers. Though the music was well received, the film sank at the box office. However, in 2002 Yashraj signed Gadhvi up to direct Mere Yaar ki Shaadi Hai, for which the Jeet-Pritam duo once again composed the music. All the songs from that movie were chartbusters, and the duo had hit the big time. Tere Liye may refer to: Tere Liye (song) A song from the Bollywood film Veer-Zaara. ...


Solo career

Jeet and Pritam worked together for only one more film which was Mudda-The Issue, before amicably parting. After the separation, Pritam's career as a solo musician stalled as he signed a series of flops like Fun2shh - Dudes In The 10th Century and Agnipankh. The films sank at the box office and with them, Pritam’s music too. However, in 2004, Pritam composed the music for Sanjay Gadhvi's second film, Dhoom, which was a runaway success. The film did well and the music topped the charts. The song Dhoom Machale, sung in Hindi by Sunidhi Chauhan and in English by Tata Young, was a huge hit, and won him the MTV Award for Best Composer.

Pritam followed up the success of Dhoom with a string of chartbusting numbers after a year for Chocolate, Garam Masala and Gangster. Also he composed the music for Dhoom 2, the sequel to Dhoom.

Plagiarism

Several of Pritam's hit compositions are said to have been 'inspired' from Turkish singer Tarkan's songs apart from certain other international sources. The most notable of these are songs like Shikudum (Dhoom)and Signal which have surprising similarity with the 'original' compositions.[1] .
