11Don - The Chase Begins Again'Don' has turned out to be a rare instance when the film is competing with itself! How? The theatrical promo of the film has garnered such positive response that it is vying for prime time slots on music channels along with the songs that continue to be beamed round the clock!Hard to find!
22Bas Ek PalSongs can be attributed as the top most reasons that made one look forward to the film. Though the film doesn't seem to be en route to the similar fate as the music, songs from 'Bas Ek Pal' continue to rock all over the town by even making an entry into up-market pubs and discs!Not meant for those who are looking at a conventional 'pyaar mohabbat' Bollywood score!
34Woh LamheLast week when the album reached #4, there was a question if it would make it to the Top 3. It has done so while inching forward with every passing week, only to peak a week before the film's release. Don't be surprised if just like 'Gangster'; this one too continues to make its presence felt in the charts long after the film is off the theatres'Bin Tere Kya Hai Jeena' is a beautiful song that has been recently aired on music channels but the music video is quite weak. A quick movement to another song may help
43OmkaraAfter a long wait, 'Omkara' did reach Top 3 but its stay there was short lived as 'Woh Lamhe' edges past it. Nevertheless, it's certainly not a mean feat for an album that was panned by many on its releaseNone....what with the music turning out to be a success!
55KANKKANK lives for yet another week in the Top 5 though the magic seems to be fading away quite quickly due to promos being by and large off the airAudience may now be looking for a change from Karan Johar and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy in their next outing
66Lage Raho MunnabhaiThe album is destined to show consistent collections over next few weeks, especially with the film doing exceptionally well at the box office. It would be interesting to see if the music sales too cross those of the first in the series, 'Munnabhai MBBS', just like the film!Situational tracks that start connecting with the listener once seen on the big screen
77FanaaAlbums like 'Fanaa' and 'Gangster', both of which have been ruling for weeks, stay in the charts for yet another week, primarily aided by the fact that there has been no major competition coming their way in last few weeksBelow average publicity
88GangsterAlbums like 'Krishna', 'Zindaggi Rocks', 'Jai Santoshi Maa' 'Utthan', 'Mera Dil Leke Dekho' and many more failing to make much impression by now means that 'Gangster' continues to sell for yet another week. It is a hot NRI favorite though with big demand amongst those visiting their homeland for a vacation!After plagiarism stories erupted about 'Gangster' with slight murmurs about 'Woh Lamhe' as well, every song by Pritam is being looked at with hawk-eyes!
99Jaan-e-mann'Ajnabi Shehar', one of the top tracks of the album, has been premiered as well but surprisingly the music is picking up quite slowly. Good quality of the music though ensures that sales would be see a healthier trend once the film releasesSurprise of the week as the album struggles to move any further up than its # 9 position. Music company and the makers may well have been left wondering how to get the sales charts go up for this well made music by Anu Malik!
105Aap Ki KhatirAn album that stays in the charts out of default due to nothing else doing anything better, 'Aap Ki Khatir' is registering low numbers too and is barely surviving the chartsRelease of music of 'Vivaah' and 'Umrao Jaan' in quick succession would certainly push the album out of the charts!
