Top 10 Songs of the Week - 10 Sep 2012
  English Vinglish enters the chart but Barfi! tastes like the sweetest wine....
  - Atta Khan
Selection based on Planet Bollywood music reviews, critical acclaim, sales figures, and overall popularity           Let us know what you think about these Top-10s
 

This week saw the release of Amit Trivedi`s English Vinglish. The soundtrack requires a few listens to grow on you but is worth the effort. Songs like "Badla Nazara", "Gustakh Dil" and "Navrai Majhi" are very enjoyable although some may find "Manhattan" annoying!

Elsewhere Barfi! rules in the run up to the film`s release...no surprises there then!
