New Delhi, Feb 28 (IANS) Music composer A.R. Rahman is undoubtedly at his musical best in Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra's blockbuster "Rang De Basanti" with his carefree "Paathshala" tightly holding on its number one slot.
The top 10 Hindi songs are:
1. "Paathshala" - Film: "Rang De Basanti"; singers: Naresh Iyer, Mohammed Aslam; music: A.R. Rahman. The film has been declared a blockbuster and now this rhythm-based song puts "Rang De Basanti" on a musical high.
2 "Jhalak dikhlaja" - Film: "Aksar"; singers: Himesh Reshammiya; music: Himesh Reshammiya. Crooned by Reshammiya, the song stands out because of the nasal effect given by the singer. It has the potential to stay on the charts for a longer period.
3. "Ek nazar mein thi" - Film: "Taxi No. 9211"; singer: K.K; music: Vishaal-Shekhar. A new entrant on the list, the track shows the versatility of K.K. as a singer.
4. "Pardey ke peeche" - Film: "Bluffmaster"; Singers: Saira Hussain; music: Vishal-Shekhar. This unconventional track replaces the hugely popular rap number "Right here right now" this week.
5 "Fanaah" - Film: "Hum Ko Deewana Kar Gaye"; Singer: K.K.; music director: Anu Malik. Akshay Kumar's fans love this foot-tapping number.
6 "Chhore ki baatein" - Film: "Fight Club"; Singers: Amit Kumar, Shweta Pandit; Music: Pritam. The film has not done too well but music lovers are enjoying the songs, especially this number.
7. "Aapki kashish" - Film: "Aashiq Banaya Aapne"; singer: Himesh Reshammiya; music: Himesh Reshammiya. Sung by Reshammiya, the track has created a niche for itself and has become a permanent fixture on the list.
8. "Jiya dhadak dhadak jaaye" - Film: "Kalyug"; singer: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan; music: Faisal Rafi, Rohail Hyat. Music buffs have hugely appreciated this song so reminiscent of the soft, romantic numbers of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
9. "Halla re" - Film: "Neal 'N' Nikki"; singers: Shweta Pandit, Salim Merchant, Irshad Kamil; music: Salim-Sulaiman. This puppy love story received a lot of flak for Tanisha Mukherji's skin show, but its music has done well. This highly energetic number is still popular.
10 "Yeh hai meri kahani" - Film: "Zinda"; singers: Strings; music: Strings. After a long gap, this song has returned to the music list.
