The Bhatt brothers have been known for their taste in quality music. Pritam has rightly acquired the tag of hit machine in the music industry. Hence, when the team comes together again, it is time for great anticipation for something extraordinary to happen again.

After a hat-trick of musical successes in GANGSTER, WOH LAMHE and AWARAPAN, Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt have roped in music composer Pritam again for the music of their forthcoming film release JANNAT. The film revolves around the theme of match fixing and betting in the world of cricket and stars Emraan Hashmi as the lead protagonist.

Music in each of the three afore-mentioned films has been widely acknowledged and appreciated in the past. Whether it is GANGSTER, WOH LAMHE or AWARAPAN, each of them has established itself in the category of a catalogue album and continues to register consistent sales till date. While GANGSTER stays on to be Pritam's biggest success ever with the Bhatt brothers, both WOH LAMHE and AWARAPAN have made their way up the music charts as well.

Though it is a different matter that multiple Pakistani composers were officially credited for their work in AWARAPAN, with Pritam being roped in the capacity of a music arranger the fact remains that songs like 'To Phir Aao' and 'Tera Mera Rishta' were two major highlights of the soundtrack.

Post the release of AWARAPAN, Vishesh Films did have DHOKA and SHOWBIZ as their next two projects but none could manage face saving musical sales, let alone even coming near the magical run they had with Pritam in their last few outings.

Meanwhile, Pritam has been enjoying a great run with multiple successful soundtracks like JAB WE MET, LIFE IN A METRO, BHOOL BHULAIYAA and most recently RACE. With JANNAT round the corner, it seems like yet another successful outing for the composer in sight. Emraan Hashmi factor counts as well because except for a film or two which didn't have good music in spite of the young actor featuring in them, all his remaining projects have always boasted of chartbuster music.

By middle of February, the music of JANNAT is expected to hit the stands. While one waits for the promos to arrive on air, Pritam is quite positive about the music of JANNAT. He says, "Normally I have a knack of knowing if a song of mine or an album in entirety will work or not with the audience. In case of JANNAT, I don't see any reason why it should not work with the audience. I have a strong feeling that we have got it right with JANNAT."

Well, even Bhatts would want to get it right with JANNAT. After all since the release of WOH LAMHE, they haven't seen a movie of theirs working at the box office. If the music of JANNAT clicks, it would only help the project gain further momentum.

JANNAT is directed by debutant director Kunal Deshmukh, an erstwhile assistant director with Mohit Suri, Bhatt's current blue-eyed boy after ZEHER, KALYUG, WOH LAMHE and AWARAPAN. The film is looking at an April 4 release.
