Top 10 Songs of the Week - 20 Dec 2012
  The lull finally ends with the return of master composers: Moitra and Bharadwaj !!
  - 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
 

It`s been a while but at last we can listen to fresh music again thanks to the return of two master composers. Firstly Shantanu Moitra returns with the soundtrack to Sudhir Mishra`s Inkaar. Some classic Moitra tunes in there including "Darmiyan" and "Maula Tu Malik Hai". Well worth a listen.

Then we have Vishal Bharadwaj`s eagerly awaited music to the crazy looking comedy film Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola. Well he doesn`t disappoint although anybody expecting the status quo will be in a for a big surprise! The title song "MKBKM" and "Lootnewale" are both energetic and wacky. "Oye Boy Charlie" is just a fun and addictive dance tune with an old school feel. Those who want something easy and relaxing should try the romantic "Khamakha". This one comes highly recommended.

Expect reviews shortly.
