The duo became extremely popular with their latest film, Jeena Hai Toh Thok Daal. In that film, the duo had also done music compositions with Siddhant Madhav. He has allowed a Bengali playback singer, Saberi Bhattacharya, to sing “Palang Tod Hai Tere Jawani”, which conveys the core message. But, in his music, we found some remix. His title song from the movie, Jeena Hai Toh Thok Daal, which had music by Shadaab - Abhik, had a western base and was particularly a theme song of the movie. The duo also has composed music for the TV serial “Ishq Kills’’, which was a crime/thriller television show that premiered on Star Plus, in 2014, and was wrapped up in 13 episodes. In addition, the duo composer was seen giving music for Mere Saath, a show on Channel V (2013), sung by Saberi Bhattacharya and Shadaab Hashmi.  In the year 2012, the duo did compose music for a short film “Gurpal Singh and Preet Kaur”, directed by Lubna Yusuf. Abhik Chatterjee holds a mass communication degree along with an advertising course from a renowned college in Kolkata. He has composed music for various short films and done some Bengali albums too. In addition, he also takes a keen interest in editing short films, commercials and music video. For feature films, he works with Shadaab in Mumbai. Although, he is fresh in the music industry, his background score in short films are really tricky and flawless, and has kept the cuteness intact. But in feature films, Abhik Chatterjee still should look into better concepts in exploitative music. He has however been appreciated for his background score for the short film, Gurpal Singh and Preet Kaur, which was atypical and flawless.
