Top 10 Songs of the Week - 1 Feb 2010
  `Dil To Bachcha Hai` and `Kaise Jiyu` are doing well!
  - 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
 

`Dil To Bachcha Hai` by Vishal Bhardwaj has captured the connoisseurs of good music with its simplistic tune and superlative singing. Sajid-Wajid`s `Taali` continues to gel well with the audience and has demonstrated that given the right project, the brothers can produce really good music, as well as light numbers like in Partner.

Released last week was Teen Patti. Music by Salim-Sulaiman is above average and fits the theme of the movie. The genre varies from song to song, but keeps the techno feel in the background. The remixes are even better with `Intezar Me Chupa Kahi` as the main pick.

Kumar Sanu returns to composing after Utthan with Yeh Sunday Kyun Aata Hai. Only `Rang Dharti Ke Liye` registers an impact, which comes in a solo Kumar Sanu and Sunidhi Chauhan version. The rest of the songs are situational. Kavita Krishnamurthy and Shaan are the two only well known singers credited.
