Top 10 Songs of the Week - 6 Jun 2013
  "Raanjhanaa" enters the chart with a bang!
  - 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 much anticipated release of `Raanjhanaa` by A.R.Rahman. Music is a mixture of traditional / classical melody and contemporary tunes. This is a decent effort but perhaps only one or two songs that can be called "great Rahman songs" such as "Tum Tak".

Elsewhere `Lootera` is still topping the chart !
