After completing his schooling at St. James' School and college education at Presidency College, he went to a music school.

Pritam joined a Bengali band, Chandrabindoo. Before that he formed another band with his Presidency batchmates, called "Jotugriher Pakhi".

Having completed his education, Pritam moved to Mumbai to pursue a career in Bollywood. During his stay in Mumbai, he began composing ad jingles and became friendly with a number of other young men struggling to make it big like Shantanu Moitra, Rajkumar Hirani, Sanjay Gadhvi and Jeet Ganguly, who played the guitar with Anup Jalota. Pritam got his first break when Sanjay Gadhvi was signed on to direct Tere Liye and he, in turn, signed on his friends Jeet and Pritam as music composers. Though the music was well received, the film sank at the box office. However, in 2002 Yashraj Films signed Sanjay Gadhvi up to direct Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai for which the Pritam-Jeet duo once again composed the music. All the songs from that movie were chartbusters and the duo had hit the big time. His music comprises various kinds including Indian classical music and western influences.

The film sank at the box office and Pritam’s music too. However, in 2004, Pritam composed the music for Sanjay Gadhvi's second film, Dhoom, which was a runaway success. The film did well and the music topped the charts.

Pritam followed up the success of Dhoom with a string of successful numbers after a year for Chocolate, Garam Masala and Gangster.
