Born in the traditional Mewati Gharana, sons of the renowned classical singer Pandit Pratap Narayan, and nephews of musical Maestro Pandit Jasraj, Jatin-Lalit are indeed blessed with an envious pedigree. And the film industry is mighty pleased about the fact that the duo chose the field of film music to display their abundant talent besides the aforementioned pedigree. No other music director/duo has been as successful in the recent times, as the youthful brothers, whose niche is melody and harmony packaged in the modern musical arrangement style. This, perhaps, stems from the fact that besides the traditional Hindustani formal music training (from their father and Pandit Ramprasadji),they were also encouraged to learn and play western musical instruments. Singing was also a childhood passion, a talent which they (albeit rarely) have utilised with great aplomb in films like "Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar," etc. They have been nominated and have won several prestigious awards each year since they started their career in 1990. Out of the innumerable examples are films like "Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar," "Khiladi," "Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge," "Khamoshi," "Yes Boss" and the recent "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai." Jatin-Lalit?s most powerful assets remain their originality and fusion of east and west in their music, factors omnipresent in each of their musical scores. As they themselves modestly claim, "We are forever on a learning curve. Hopefully, our best is yet to come." For the sake of the Hindi film music, this should remain the sign of the times to come.
