"Tubelight wasn't an easy album to compose," says Pritam

MUMBAI: Pritam has proven time and again, that he is one of the most talented music composers in the country today. Having composed music for films like ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and ‘Dangal’ last year, Pritam is all set to add another feather to his hat with Salman Khan's ‘Tubelight’.

Pritam has previously worked with Kabir Khan and Salman Khan in the duo's last blockbuster ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, where he gave us some of the most beautiful songs including ‘Tu Jo Mila’ and ‘Tu Chahiye’.

With ‘Tubelight’, Pritam gave the audience a variety of songs which they absolutely love. Be it a happy song like ‘Radio’ or a soulful melody like ‘Tinka Tinka Dil Mera’, the diversity in his album proves the versatility of Pritam’s compositions. In fact, ‘Tinka Tinka Dil Mera’ is Salman’s favourite song from the album too!

But ‘Tubelight’s’ album is not one that came easy to Pritam. In fact it was one of the most challenging albums he has composed.

To this Pritam said, “‘Tubelight’ wasn’t an easy album to compose. There were a lot of challenges that I had to overcome. The songs in ‘Tubelight’ are very situational and the situations were bigger than the song. So the songs had to be such that they complement the situations and don’t overpower them.”

Talking about the composition and melodies, Pritam added, “The film is set in the 1960’s and it was very important for me to keep the essence of the melodies and the notes in that era. I couldn’t use modern notes while composing the songs. Also the songs couldn’t be macho or cool because of the character Salman plays in the film. Salman plays a character who is sweet and cute and the music had to be such too!”

Pritam has composed several romantic songs through his career, but composing an album like ‘Tubelight’, which is about brotherhood and the love between brothers, could not have come easy to the composer. But we’ve got to say that he’s done a fabulous job with ‘Tubelight’, something the audience will definitely agree with
