‘Dance tracks must for suc­cess of mu­sic al­bum’

While many mu­si­cians in Bol­ly­wood be­lieve that a dance track or an item num­ber does not de­ter­mine the suc­cess of a film’s mu­sic score, mu­sic com­posers Atul Go­gavale (right) and Ajay Go­gavale (far right) think oth­er­wise. The two are cur­rently en­joy­ing the suc­cess of Mera Naam Mary, a song fea­tur­ing ac­tor Ka­reena Kapoor Khan in an up­com­ing film.

“I think that an item track or a num­ber with fast beats is im­por­tant in movies. There should be a song on which the au­di­ence can dance, be­cause when there is a track that peo­ple can en­joy and dance freely on, they tend to lis­ten to it more,” says Atul, who, along with Ajay, has com­posed tracks for movies like Sing­ham (2011), Agneepath (2012) and Bol Bachchan (2012).

The mu­si­cal duo re­ceived a Na­tional award for their work in Marathi film Jogwa (2009,) and as their work trav­elled around the coun­try, both of them faced the prob­lem of pla­gia­rism. “Peo­ple have copied our Marathi songs with­out any fear. In fact, the in­tro­duc­tion of our song Mera Naam Mary has been copied by film­mak­ers in the south. This is not right. Once the copy­right law gets im­ple­mented, things will def­i­nitely im­prove in our mu­sic in­dus­try,” says Ajay.
