Mithun Sharma (born 11 January 1985), also known as Mithoon, is an Indian Hindi film music director, lyricist-composer and singer.[1]

Mithoon is well known for his composition of the famous Hindi song "Tum Hi Ho" from the 2013 Bollywood romantic film Aashiqui 2. The song was highly acclaimed by critics as well as audiences, and remained on the top of various Indian music charts for several weeks. Mithoon received the Filmfare Award for Best Music Director, and in 2014 received a nomination for Filmfare Award for Best Lyricist in the 59th Filmfare Awards. He wrote and composed one of the most streamed Hindi songs on YouTube, "Sanam Re." The song was honoured with the award of "Most Streamed Song of 2016" at the Global Indian Music Academy Awards.[2]

Early life[edit]

Mithoon was born into a family of musicians.[3] His grandfather, Pandit Ram Prasad Sharma, imparted music knowledge to thousands of aspirants, many of whom are amongst today's top musicians.[4] His father, Naresh Sharma, was a leading expert of musical arrangements,[5] having worked with almost all of the top composers in more than two hundred movies. Mithoon's father and his uncle Pyarelal-ji (Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma) formed one-half of the legendary composer duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal.[6]

Mithoon started learning music at the age of eleven. Since his father remained busy, he was sent him to knowledgeable people to train himself. His father observed him closely and would often notice what he was practicing. His father often listened to the tunes that he created as well.[5]

Career[edit]

Mithoon began his career with two recreations: "Woh Lamhe" in Zeher and "Aadat" in Kalyug. In 2006, Mithoon's friend recommended his name to Onir, (director of Bas Ek Pal), who wanted an electro-based title track. This led to his first original song as a composer, "Bas Ek Pal" with singer KK, and was followed by "Tere Bin" (by Pakistani singer Atif Aslam) in 2006. Both songs were included in the film Bas Ek Pal. .[7]

Mithoon followed up with another melodious score for Anwar, released in 2007. Later movies like The Train, Lamhaa and 3G followed, and although the movies did not fare well, the music was very well received.

He also worked as a guest composer for songs on several nonmovie albums, such as "Kuch Is Tarah" from Atif Aslam's album Doorie,[8] and Abhijeet Sawant's and "Ek Shaqs" from the Abhijeet Sawant album Junoon. He released his own album, Tu Hi Mere Rab Ki Tarah Hai in 2009 with T-Series. For this album, Mithoon traveled to the United Kingdom to rope in musicians. There, he worked with musicians of the Philharmonic Orchestra.[9]

Mithoon also scored music for a Malaysian movie called Diva, where he collaborated with Malaysian R&B singer, Ning Baizura.

A moment of glory came for Mithoon when he composed the song "Tum Hi Ho" for Aashiqui 2. The song went on to become a major hit, and paved the way for his fortune. His song "O saathi" from the movie Shab has been labelled as one of the most intense songs by his listeners. He has also been a solo or guest composer on many additional movies including Murder 2, Jism 2,Yaariyan, Ek Villain, Hate Story 2, Creature 3D, Samrat & Co, Alone, Hamari Adhuri Kahani, Bhaag Johnny, All Is Well, Loveshhuda, Sanam Re, Ki & Ka, Shivaay, Wajah Tum Ho, Half Girlfriend, Shab, Aksar 2, Hate Story 4, Baaghi 2, Mercury.
