Unfortunately, Pritam is credited(or rather discredited) with lifting a lot of songs from various songs. In fact the album Gangster, which was musically appreciated, lacked a single original tune. Pritam is a talented composer but he also heads the list of music directors currently who lifts tunes from other sources. Apart from Pritam, there are many music composers, new and old who have lifted tunes from English and Arabic albums.
Here are some of the songs lifted by Pritam and their sources:
Dhoom Machale: Jesse Cooks Mario takes a Walk.
Tu hi meri shab hai(Gangster): Oliver Shanty and Friends Sacral Nirvana
Suniye toh(Yes Boss): Ahla Ma Feki(Hisham Abbas)
Adaa(Garam Masala): Ana(Amr Adib)
Kya Mujhe Pyaar Hai(Who Lamhe): Tak Bisakah by Peterpan
Dil mein baji Guitar(Apna Sapna Money Money)-Sheloha Shela played by Miami Band.

Who doesn't ? even SD did from his own old Bangla songs. Salil Choudhary did. However, sheer copycats can't be hit anyway.

Do you know not only Pritam but Great Thief and Criminal R.D. Burman was a thief along with other so called GREAT (!!!) Music Directors like Anu Malik,Anand Milind, Anand Raaj Anand, Bappi Lahiri, Jatin Lalit, Kalyanji Anandji, Laxmikant Pyarelal, Nadeem Shravan, OP Nayyar, Pritam Chakravarty, Rajesh Roshan,Salil Chaudhry, SD Burman, Sandeep Chowta, Sanjeev Darshan, Shankar Jaikishen?

The problem is these music directors had to and has to do a lot of song like 50 to 100 in a year while a western music director may create 50 song in his 25 years of life. Do you feel such a huge number of ORGINAL songs can be produced by a human being?

The main thing is these Criminal along with RD Burman did not or do not express the main source. RD Burman is famous for songs like Mehbuba or others which are FULLY Coppied. Check this web site : www.itwofs.com

Yeh, a lot. But what's wrong in it? His all songs are not been copied, it may be 3-4% of his all songs has been copied. Songs other than those copied are really very good and most of them either touch our hearts or shake our legs. That is what a music director can do their maximum. And Pritam have done that. Actually he had copied those songs to create a new Indian taste with those original score. Indian audiences appreciate that. How many people have listen the original songs before it being copied ?I think a very few amongst the billions.Lots of bollywood fims are fully copied either from hollywood or from different states of India, and lots of remake is going on. So if a whole can be copied, then why not a song?
