    Music director Pritam has completely gone agog with the success of his latest
    compositions for the film Metro. With positive reviews from all over the
    country, no reason why one should hide their excitement. "The music of
    Metro is the top seller at music stores in the last three days. This is
    the first time this is happening to me", says he.

    Seems like Pritam has
    given his heart and soul out to the music of the film. "In college I used to be
    doing this kind of music and this is what I actually enjoy."

    From Raga
    to Rock

    By now it is common knowledge that Pritam had formed a Rock
    band for the music of the film. "It was necessary that the whole soundtrack of
    the film be completely Rock as there is a Rock band in it. Initially I was very
    skeptical in terms of how we could pull this off as Rock is a new sound in
    Bollywood. If it was just a band album, it would have been simpler. All you have
    to do is form a band and make the music. However, a film album is going to
    compete with other film albums. So making a band and keeping the flavour of the
    film was challenging", he went onto say.

    "Hot funk, cold punk, even if
    its old junk, it's still rock and roll to me." - Billy Joel

    Is it you
    regular Band baaja? We think not. "Anurag told me to be a part of the band and
    James came in as well. Then I started auditioning for the band. Sohail and Soham
    who had sung with me earlier were roped in. This band was formed only for the
    film but after we shot a video, I felt that we should take this band forward. So
    we are going to cut another album which will be independent of Metro. The reason
    for this is because we can create good sound with the members and with my music
    capabilities. Milatri is also part of the band and is a great guitar player. His
    sound is an integral part of Metro and will continue with the band. Eric Pillai
    does the mixing completely."

    "Rock and Roll: Music for the neck
    downwards." - Keith Richards, Rolling Stones.

    The whole idea of In
    Dino Dil Mera has come from Anurag. In Dino Dil Mera is the fastest song I have
    ever made in my life. Kar Salaam has also got a very funny story around it. It
    was based on a Bodo tribe of Assam. They have a typical dance form called
    Bagarumba. We were discussing different dance forms of India and my Assamese
    assistant was showing me how they do their typical Assamese dance. The melody he
    was humming with it sounded pretty catchy. So I said let us make a rock version
    of it. So Kar Salaam is the rock version of thousands of years old Bodo folk
    song.

    "Director Lovely Singh has done excellent work in making the
    video. I think it is going to rock the nation."

    On a parting note:
    Mixing Music and marriage.

    "I'm working like a mad person. My wife
    will leave me soon because she is already getting upset that I return home at
    four in the morning."
