    Slumdog Millionaire`s Assamese connection
    The internationally acclaimed 'Slumdog Millionaire' has an Assamese connection as well.

    The film which swept awards at the Golden Globes and the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) has contributions from sound designer Amrit Pritam from Assam.

    He has also designed the sound of Bollywood block-buster 'Ghajini' before working on location for the Oscar-nominated 'Slumdog Millionaire' as an associate recordist for its Hindi-version.

    The young sound designer has worked for 45 Bollywood movies for the last six years and hails from Jorhat in upper Assam. His specialty is sync sound, where dialogues, ambience and sound are recorded on location along with the visuals through multi-track recorders, boom and lapel microphones.

    He's reportedly said, "Sync sound does away with post-production dubbing and gets the best performance of actors as their voice matches the emotions they show on location.

    Unlike in the traditional method where real life sound recordings are used, the new concept of sound design in India helps technicians to create and design the sounds in the film. " In 'Ghajini' he reportedly used 350 different sound tracks to arrive at the thematic metal sound as its main character (Amir Khan) was hit by an iron rod to lose his memory.

    It's good to see small town talent get some limelight in the world of showbiz.
