Good music often sidelined in pursuit of hit, says Pritam

Mumbai, June 28 (IANS) Music composer Pritam Chakrabarty has created many a chartbuster in the Hindi film world, but he says hit music is not always good.

The man behind the tunes of Salman Khan’s upcoming film “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” has seen it all in his career — flops and even plagiarism charges apart from some successful tracks. But he says quality often tends to take a backseat.

“In the process of finding the ‘hit’ tag, good things often take a backseat. It is not necessary what is good is instantly successful. In the pressure of trying to create a hit song, good aspects are kept aside,” Pritam told IANS.

But he doesn’t mind the ‘hit’ tag associated with him and said that he is “happy” about it.

Pritam said his latest compositions for “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” were challenging for him.

“Composing for films like ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ is challenging as it doesn’t have a linear music scope. Every song tells a story and it’s extremely merged with the script making it difficult to compose,” he added.
