Top 10 Songs of the Week - 30 May 2013
  Amit Trivedi returns to top form in "Lootera"
  - 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 a number of new releases that are worth checking out:

1. `Lootera` is from the same makers of the 2010 film `Udaan`. The director brings back Amit Trivedi for his latest film and the result is a resounding success! Trivedi delivers some fabulous tunes for what is a period based film, in particular "Ankahee", "Manmarziyan" are mesmerising but there`s other highlights such as "Sawaar Loon" and "Shikayatein". A soundtrack for the music connoisseurs with music going straight into the Top 5.

2. "`Ghanchakkar` is a comedy based film. The music by Amit Trivedi is a tad disappointing but it will work well in the film. "Allah Meherbaan" is a highlight.

3. `Shortcut Romeo` is a soundtrack by Himesh Reshammiya. Among some pathetic numbers there are a few songs to consider including "Khali Salam Dua".

Elsewhere `Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani` and `Aashiqui 2` still popular after blockbuster success at the box office!
