  - Gianysh Toolsee
Selection based on Planet Bollywood music reviews, critical acclaim, sales figures, and overall popularity           Let us know what you think about these Top-10s
 

The only big music release last week has been the much-awaited Kaminey with upbeat music by Vishal Bhardwaj and lyrics by favorite Gulzar. The composer in Vishal Bhardwaj presents us catchy hooks and a very unusual music, which he hasnít tried before.

The other release is RGVís Agyaat. Bapi-Tutul and newcomers Imran-Vikram share the music credits. The music is very situational and is in synch with the theme of the movie, with the exception of a item number and a romantic song.

# 10
 Mister Hua Hai Aisa Hal Kyun  Singers: Juune Banerji  Best time to listen: At night
 Film: Sankat City
 Music: Ranjit Barot  Lyrics: Panchhi Jalonvi, Mehboob  Audio On: Venus Records
This jazz-influenced and cabaret style number, composed by the immensely talented Ranjit Barot, is pleasing. The expert in programming does not disappoint at all.


# 9
 Sapne Bhaye Hain (Unplugged)  Singers: Javed Ali, Rajab Ali  Best time to listen: Early morning
 Film: Dekh Bhai Dekh
Dekh Bhai Dekh has some interesting tracks which take time to be appreciated. Javed Ali is simply superb in this number. Itís a pity that the music did not get its due, because it is a small movie. Music directors Nayab and Shahdaab Bhartiya have done a commendable job overall.

# 8
 Khoobsurat  Singers: Shweta Pandit, Vickeey.B Joshi  Best time to listen: In the morning
 Film: Agyaat
Bapi-Tutulís latest romantic composition is a winner! Shweta Pandit excels in this song. The programming and mixing are of high quality and the use of pumping techno beats, together with instruments like guitar and flute, distinguishes it from the rest.

# 7
 Jee Le  Singers: Shruti Pathak, Naresh Kamath  Best time to listen: While having a sandwich
 Film: Luck  PB Music Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Salim-Sulaiman  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed and Anvita Dutt Guptan  Audio On: T-Series
Salim-Sulaimanís techno-centric tracks are quickly finding a place in everyoneís playlist. This particular track, with their favorite, Shruti Pathak, is really catchy. Instruments like the guitar and the flute have been used interestingly throughout the song.

# 6

 Film: Kaminey  PB Music Rating: 8.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17

Vishal Bhardwaj returns after the melodious U, Me Aur Hum and has tried something different with the music of Kaminey. `Fatak` is a clear example.

# 5
 Dolna  Singers: Shreya Ghoshal  Best time to listen: At night
 Film: Morning Walk  PB Music Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Jeet Gannguli  Lyrics: Sanjeev Tiwari, Dibyendu Mukherjee, Nida Fazli, Shaan  Audio On: T-Series
The surprise of the season is the whole soundtrack of Morning Walk. Shreya Ghoshal is at her best in this solo track full of emotions. The orchestration is top-notch and the solo violin adds more depth to the song.

# 4
 Tune Jo Na Kaha  Singers: Mohit Chauhan  Best time to listen: At night
 Film: New York  PB Music Rating: 3.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Pritam, Pankaj Awasthi  Lyrics: Sandeep Shrivastava, Junaid Wasi  Audio On: Yash Raj Music
Mohit Chauhan, who is becoming more and more popular each year, sings beautifully the well-composed track. The slow-paced number has gained more popularity after the success of the movie.

# 3
 Dard-E-Tanhai  Singers: Nouman Javaid  Best time to listen: At night
 Film: Jashnn  PB Music Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17

, Nouman Javaid
, Nilesh Mishra  Audio On: T-Series
The young composers and brothers, who are flying high these days, after the hit track ĎMaahií from Raaz 2, emerge once more with another soulful and rock-flavored track. Following the Vishesh Films brand of music, the duo hits the jackpot once again.

# 2
 Twist  Singers: Neeraj Shridhar  Best time to listen: On the way to work
 Film: Love Aaj Kal  PB Music Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil  Audio On: Eros Music
After the huge musical success of Jab We Met, Pritam and lyricist Irshad Kamil come up with another popular track. `Twist ` is already a hit and Neeraj Shridhar fits the bill for this high-energy track. On his side, Pritam has used the hook of the `Mandole` song from Nagin in the most creative way (with appropriate credits). Who would have thought that that hook could be put into such a use? Pritam really surprises us sometimes and thatís that way to go!

    .... And the No.1 Recommended Song of this Week is:
# 1
 Om Mangalam  Singers: RDB  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: Kambakkht Ishq  PB Music Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Anu Malik, RDB, Salim and Sulaiman  Lyrics: Anvita Dutt Guptan, RDB  Audio On: EROS
The `Om Mangalam` mania has caught on in a big way. After the excellent first week`s collections, the song is on everyoneís lips. RBD has done it again and the group is proving to be a lucky mascot in recent Akshay Kumar movies. Anu Malik`s `Lakh Lakh` and `Bebo` have also become popular.
