Top 10 Songs of the Week - 26 Oct 2009
  Aladin and Kurbaan enter chart!
  - 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
 

Rahman returns to the Number One position, despite the fact that the soundtrack has faced criticism. However, the terrific start for Blue at the box office has maintained the popularity of the songs. Himesh Reshammiya is rock solid in the charts, as his songs cater for a different segment. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy makes an impression with the soundtrack of London Dreams, although the music composers present the rock sound in a new avatar. Pritam remains the most popular music director with three songs in the charts!

Salim-Sulaiman`s Kurbaan has an edgy sound with deep performances by a variety of singers. Fruit and Nut by Sangeet Haldipur and Siddharth Haldipur offers a good selection of songs.

 Music: Shamir Tandon, Sharib Shabri, Toshi Shabri  Lyrics: Sharib Toshi, Sandeep Nath, Ajay Kumar Garg, Turaz  Audio On: T-Series
Lata Mangeshkar sets the right mood for this song with her superlative performance.


# 9
 Haan Hain Jitni Martaba  Singers: K.K, Yashita  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: All The Best  PB Music Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Kumaar  Audio On: T-Series
The good response to All The Best at the box office has ensured that the songs are in the spotlight. But the soundtrack didn`t get the right exposure, even though the songs were good compositions.

# 8
 Tu Hi Haqeeqat  Singers: Javed Ali, Irfan Ashraf and Shadab  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: Tum Mile  PB Music Rating: 8.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 402 listeners): 5.16
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Sayeed Quadri, Kumaar  Audio On: Sony
Tum Mile has been appreciated and Javed Ali delivers in this particular track.

# 7
 Andhera Hain (Reprise)  Singers: Sangeet Haldipur  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: Fruit and Nut
The recently released Fruit and Nut presents us with a little known number, which is pleasing to the ears!

# 6
 Shukran Allah  Singers: Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal, Salim Merchant  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: Kurbaan  PB Music Rating: 7.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 401 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Salim-Sulaiman  Lyrics: Niranjan Iyengar, Irfan Siddiqui  Audio On: Sony Music
Salim-Sulaiman delivers in Kurbaan and Sonu Nigam is in wonderful form in this track. The sweet melody is welcomed!

# 5
 You May Be  Singers: Vishal Dadlani, Shekhar Ravjiani  Best time to listen: Late night
 Film: Aladin  PB Music Rating: 4.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: Vishal Dadlani, Shekhar Ravjiani  Lyrics: Vishal Dadlani, Anvita Dutt Guptan  Audio On: Eros Music
Shekhar Ravjiani comes with one of the highlights of his career with the soulful rendition of `You May Be`. A beautiful composition from Vishal-Shekhar, the song has become extremely popular due to the amazing singing and the touching lyrics. Yet simple in orchestration, the number shows that simplicity is best.

# 4
 Tera Hone Laga Hoon  Singers: Atif Aslam, Alisha Chinoy  Best time to listen: At night
 Film: Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani  PB Music Rating: 7.5 out of 10  Public Rating (by 402 listeners): 5.15
 Music: Pritam  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil  Audio On: Tips Music
Atif Aslam and Alisha Chinoy when paired together, well, one has to expect the finest performances! No doubt, a lovely song, in the romantic Pritam`s style, which has hit the right chords! The picturization on Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif is also wonderful. Recommended!

# 3
 Khanabadosh  Singers: Mohan  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: London Dreams  PB Music Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 401 listeners): 5.15
 Music: Shankar Ehsaan Loy  Lyrics: Prasoon Joshi  Audio On: T-Series
An electrifying and lively number, from a soundtrack full of surprises! London Dreams is one of the better products from SEL this year. The emphasis on sounds, singing and instruments is highly prevalent throughout the soundtrack, especially this one. Fortunately, most rock songs do not necessarily need a `melody`; but `Khanabadosh` follows an unusual route.

# 2
 Mann Ka Radio  Singers: Himesh Reshammiya  Best time to listen: Anytime
 Film: Radio  PB Music Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 402 listeners): 5.19
 Music: Himesh Reshammiya  Lyrics: Subrat Sinha  Audio On: T-Series
Himesh Reshammiya is heavily promoting Radio and with a solid hit in the form of `Mann Ka Radio`, he can be sure he`s on the right track. However, the rest of the soundtrack, though good in melody, has been sidelined with this hit! What would have happened if all the songs were in the same genre? Hit or flop?

    .... And the No.1 Recommended Song of this Week is:
# 1
 Rehnuma  Singers: Sonu Nigam,Shreya Ghoshal  Best time to listen: At night
 Film: Blue  PB Music Rating: 8.0 out of 10  Public Rating (by 400 listeners): 5.17
 Music: A.R. Rahman  Lyrics: Abbas Tyrewala, Mayur Puri, Rajat Arora, Sukhwinder Singh, Raqueeb Alam  Audio On: T-Series
With the good performance of Blue at the box office in the last two weeks, this song has gained more popularity! It was interesting to see what Rahman dished out for an action movie. To be versatile in Bollywood, composers need to be able to maintain consistency with each genre of movie they do. The verdict is out! But like most of the Rahman`s soundtracks, they do take a little of time to be appreciated.
