  Top 10 Critics Songs of 2014
  - Atta Khan
Selection based on critical acclaim, originality of lyrics, music composition, and Planet Bollywood critics recommendations           Let us know what you think about these Top-10s

Welcome to My Top 10 Critics songs of 2014. Firstly I must apologise for the lack of updates (to the Critics Top 10) however due to several factors including a lack of good music, I was unable to update this.

I strongly feel that 2014 was the worst year for Bollywood music for a long time (some truly awful music catered for mainly for music video promos), but even so, we still had some good tunes and just about enough to make the Top 10 of 2014.

Soundtrack of the year (Queen)

My Top 3 soundtracks of the year include Ek Villian (various), Queen (Amit Trivedi) and Haidar (Vishal Bharadwaj). Ek Villian will undoubtedly take the popular vote and while the music was catchy it was hardly innovative. Likewise Haidar, while a very good effort, would never please everyone. Queen sits somewhere in the middle so takes by vote for the best of 2014.

Song of the year – Tu (Bobby Jasoos)

It was a close fight for the Top 2 but the overall winner is… “Tu” from a small budget movie called Bobby Jasoos. While overall the album was average, Shatanu Moitra composed a gem in “Tu” which comes in two versions. Both sung by the duet Shreya Ghoshal and Papon. An incredible song that is full of melody, some wonderful traditional music and joyful singing… one that reminds us of the true mastery of Moitra sir. This is up there with his best work ever!

Second to that is Rahman’s “Patakha Guddi” which is equally brilliant!

Composer of the year - Ankit Tiwari

We have missed the likes of Pritam in 2014. Others have also been quiet including Amit Trivedi and Rahman. So my award goes to Ankit Tiwari for his efforts in Ek Villian (Galliyan and P.K. (Dil Darbadar).

Singer of year – Arijit Singh

Probably the easiest decision! Arijit went from strength to strength and sang in most top albums including the likes of Haidar.
