Paramjeet Singh Bawra or Sunny Bawra (that is how he is more commonly known as) is one half of the famous Indian music composer duo. They are the sons of Major Singh Bawra and belong to the city of Bhatinda. Sunny Bawra and
have composed songs for more than thirty popular television shows such as Maharana Pratap, Jhaansi ki rani,
and the list goes on. This composer duo is the face behind these jingles we listen to everyday. Sunny Bawra is the younger brother and he has had a knack for composing music since childhood. His father Major Singh Bawra and his grandfather Mohinder Singh Bawra are his biggest inspirations.
They were both known for their musical talents, but their inability to break into the film industry drove the brothers to do so. And they finally achieved their dream. They have composed one song for Ankur Arora Murder Case (their first work in Bollywood), the background scores for The Hate Story series,
and Ambarsariya. His brother considers him to be his biggest critic and in spite of being the youngest, his advice is always listened to and his decision is always respected. Sunny Bawra completed his graduation in Bhatinda from D.A.V College and joined his brother in Mumbai immediately after.
They worked as assistants to Ravinder Jain for four years before their musical breakthrough happened. Their work in Rocky Handsome was widely talked about.” Composer Sunny and Inder Bawra put together an euphonious arrangement that has a haunting impact”- this was the Times of India music review for their album. The song Rehnuma from this album is popular even today and was the pick of the soundtrack of The Hindu. According to this reputed newspaper, “Their film debut in ‘Rocky Handsome’ is a notable effort”. Young Sunny believes that music has the ability to heal the body and mind. He says that one should always try to retain the authenticity of his musical creation.
For this one needs to learn about the power of contemporary and western music. Their family has always had the custom of transferring traditional forms of poetry (‘doha’, ‘chopai’ ‘chaand’ ‘swaayiya’) to the younger generation. This has helped Sunny to learn more about music and inculcated his interest in it since childhood. Currently this promising composer is learning all he can about the genre of western music in London College of Music. Only time will tell if he lives up to the expectations which has been built because of his popular background scores and T.V jingles.
