Bollywood’s favourite strain director-composer-singer-instrumentalist-record writer Pritam Chakraborty, or as he is amatory called Pritam, has given us some of a many noted Hindi songs. In an disdainful talk with indianexpress.com, Pritam talks about a Indian strain industry, strain ambience of Indian millennials and rehashing or remixing aged songs.
Q. You gave your heart and essence for Jagga Jasoos and Jab Harry Met Sejal. While a strain of both a films were loved, a films didn’t do well. Does that impact you?
A film doing good or not is not in my hands and whenever we harmonise for a film, we don’t consider either a film will do good or not. If we ask me either it affects me or not, of course, it does. we am really many a partial of a film. It’s success or disaster affects me.
Q. There were talks about we holding a tiny break. Tell us more.
I did not pointer any film given 2016 as we already had so many in my hand. we motionless to pointer a new film after they all are released. So, after JHMS came out, we motionless to take a brief mangle before signing any new film. we will start operative from Jan 2018.
Q. What according to we is a strain ambience of Indian millennials?
Though people demeanour for new adaptation and complicated sound currently nonetheless a simple requirement for a good tune and lyrics haven’t left away.
Q. Today’s songs don’t indispensably have poetry. Mostly they usually have beats and rhythm. Your say?
Poetry is required in a song. we trust strain combination is afterwards many critical part. After that comes a lyrics and afterwards a singing. Beats, stroke and adaptation are also important. So communication is really important. Lyrics gives longevity to a song. You tend to remember and associate yourself with a strain for longer time when we know and describe to a lyrics of a song.
Q. The Indian strain attention currently has turn competitive. More importance is given to performances, looks and fan following. What is your take?
I consider during a finish of a day how we demeanour competence emanate an advantage during a commencement though it’s a calm that eventually succeeds. So, in a prolonged run, it’s a talent and tough work that pays your bills.
As distant as foe is concerned, as foe has increased, a volume of work has also increased. There is lot of work. The attention has non-stop adult and it’s no longer about 3 or 4 composer or singers. Anybody who is good gets work. So along with competition, opportunities have also increased.
Q.Tell us a kind of work that we wish JAM8 to take up?
JAM8 is an AR (Artist and Repertoire) incubation platform. The simple ground is to find gifted people who will incubated, neat and pushed into a strain industry.
India is lagging in AR incubation. Our nation is full of talent though lot of good talent is left out since they don’t get opportunity. JAM8’s simple proceed is to give that opportunity.
We wish JAM8 to take adult a space of portion a whole artistic village on sonic identities. So, fundamentally if there is a large code out there who wish to emanate impact with their selling or a large radio array out there that wants to emanate an iconic thesis strain or a film like Raees who wants to emanate songs, we wish JAM8 to be a ‘go to’ artistic chairman for each one of these guys.
Q. What is your take on a trend of rehashing, remixing and bringing behind comparison songs.
Rehashing and remixing aged songs are excellent compartment they are partial of a script. When it becomes a normal and each choice film has a remixed song, it is not a healthy trend.
