Is the background score of Lootera copied?




The official trailer of Ranveer Singh-Sonakshi Sinha starrer Lootera was launched in style.
The trailer was praised by everyone but the makers' happiness was short-lived. Soon after the film's trailer went viral on internet,  there were rumours that Lootera's background score has been copied from a 2011 Hollywood production, One Day.

The One Day track had been created by British composer Rachel Portman while Lootera's music is given by Amit Trivedi.

 
We are posting both the music tracks here and leaving it to you to decide whether the background score of Lootera is copied or not.


ONE DAY (2011) - Rachel Portman





Director Vikramaditya denied the rumors and gave the clarification on his blog.

Vikramaditya Motwane writes on a blog:

Ok, to clarify
the music of the Lootera teaser trailer hasn’t copied from One Day.

The theme is sourced from a small musical bit composed by Amit Trivedi for a song that's in the film, which we decided to expand and turn into a fully fledged theme for the trailer.

Unfortunately it ends up sounding a lot like One Day but I assure you that it's coincidental.

When you (eventually) hear the song you will understand and see where the theme was born.
