We earlier reported that the Iranian band Barobax had lodged a complaint and then filed a plagiarism case against Pritam and the makers of Agent Vinod claiming that the song ‘Pyaar Ki Pungi’ had beats lifted from their track ‘Soosan Khanoom’.
At the time the accusation was first made, the music programmer and arranger of the song Sandeep Shirodkar said, “The similarity between ‘Pyaar ki Pungi’ and ‘Soosan Khanoom’ is the Persian groove. But that basically means that both songs fit a certain genre. Musically and lyrically, they are poles apart. Consider the Indian songs from the 60′s. Each one of them had a consistent dhol and tabla pattern. So does that mean that every new song that has a dhol or tabla playing in the background is now a copy of some number that was produced decades ago? More importantly, all the loops used in the songs have been officially purchased from established software developers.”
Apparently the band did not agree and filed a case against the composer, Illuminati Films and Eros Entertainment producers of Agent Vinod in the High Court.
Pritam denied the charges and told the Hindustani Times, “I am planning to file a case against them. We will be filing all the appropriate legal action against Barobax including criminal proceedings.”
The band has now withdrawn the case and issued this statement:
“We decided to withdraw the case filed against Mr. Pritam and others for the copying of a song of Barobax an Iranian band. After looking into the defences [sic] of Mr. Pritam and the analysis made by various expert, we have realised that Mr. Pritam is right and there is no copying of our song and so we understood that we cannot built a good case. We do not want to get into any further legal issue and so we are withdrawing the case, as we know that Mr. Pritam’s Lawyer Henal Vakharia is an expert in Copyright laws and there will be strong criminal action otherwise made out against us. We sincerely apologise Mr. Pritam for all such and withdraw all our allegations made by us against him.”
