Top 10 Hindi Songs of January 2015

We have introduced several new features here on Indicine this year. While there are quite a few more exclusive articles that we have planned, here is another much-requested feature from music lovers – The Top 10 Hindi Songs of the month (January 2015).

In an effort to offer something new, we try to make our articles different from other websites and magazines. For the list of Top 10 songs, we also pick the singer and album of the month.

The Top 10 list of January 2015 is dominated by Shreya Ghoshal and Arijit Singh, who are the female and male singers of the month.

For the album of the month, our pick is PK closely followed by Roy. There something about the music in Rajkumar Hirani movies. Prior to the release of his film, no song in his album appeals to music lovers. But post-release, each song suddenly is a gem with tremendous repeat-value. One such song is ‘Bhagwan Hai Kahan Re Tu’ sung in the legendary vocals of Sonu Nigam.

Recently, when Hirani was asked about the music in his films not being as successful as other ‘blockbuster’ films, he said “There are two kinds of music in our films. One, where there is no connection with the film at all. The songs are made with fast beats for the clubs and discos for people to dance. A scene cuts to another entirely new location where people are dancing. And then there is music which is made keeping the film in mind. Even the lyrics is connected to the story. I feel this sort of music is a little more difficult to make and these songs work after watching the movie. Even with 3 Idiots, songs like All Izz Well and Zoobi Doobi, didn’t work before the release. But I do accept that we have to improve the quality of our music to some extent.”

Top 10 Hindi Songs of January 2015 below!

Note: Songs from films that have released in the last 3 months or any other upcoming film will be considered for the Top 10.



  • A poor film called roy has recovered from poor promos , bad content by adding ankit tiwari,arjit singh songs.Where are makers of baby?baby is releasing early.

  • That interview with Komal Nahta also featured Abhijat Joshi and both spoke with a high degree of intelligence… Their movir songs are well placed and hence theres so much flow from start to finish…. Truly a remarkable album PK is- my fav song still is Dil Darbadar….

    On a side note I saw the Galliyan video from Ek Villain on youtube yesterday after your article and what did I miss in 2014…, bought it from itunes and been playing it non stop ever since- love that song now…!

    • @Why you are always late…Earlier you called ready crap after 4 years of its release..Now galliyan…Kia yaar kia cheze ho ap b

  • Dont feel they need to up the ante with their music- maybe remove one song but no need for chartbuster music which may detract attention away from the movie- content rules in Hirani Sirs movies- keep making great films n music /songs will take care of themselves…!

  • Really like Tharki Chokro and Bhagwaan song. Love the way Swanand Kirkire manages to write meaningful yet soothing songs.

  • Add item songs,party song of imran khan,give homage to salman,promote heavily,attend tv shows,city tour,but at last side role star will remain the same.All that glitters is not gold.Quality will prevail finally.Baby will be sureshot winner.

  • @Navin

    Don’t forget to check out Raju Hirani and Komal’s interview after 3 idiots. I think it was the best interview I have ever seen.

    Also the interview you’re talking about is special for me, because my comment was the most upvoted one for that video. (Truly their interviews have terrific repeat value :D)

  • Manwa Lage in top 10? Lol.
    My fav 10 based on my own choice and current popularity(Month from Dec to Feb)

    1. Tu Hai ki Nahin- Roy
    2. Bhagwan Hai Kahaan re tu- PK
    3. Jee Karda- Badlapur
    4. Sooraj Dooba Hai- Roy
    5. Khamoshiyaan- khamoshiyaan
    6. Joganiyaan- Tevar
    7. Chaar Kadam- PK
    8. Katra- Alone
    9. MadMiyaan- Tevar
    10. Love Is a waste of Time

  • wat an outstanding way to begin 2015
    first u gave us the look of ranbir in jj
    then gave arjun award for most promising superstar of future
    then news of roy creating good buzz
    then excellent articles on upcoming films of sid,arjun,ranveer
    and finally this article where top song of 2015 has gone to ranbir’s . tu hai ki nahi

    there isa saying ‘morning shows the day’ and so far all the indications r saying that 2015 will belong to youngistaan lead by sir ranbir

  • Watched PK yesterday,Bhagwan hai kahan re tu is one of the best portion of the film..literally cried watching it!!

  • My fav composers of today
    1. A R Rahman
    2. Amit Trivedi
    3. Vishal-Shekhar/Pritam
    4. Mithoon/Salim-Suleiman
    5. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy

    i dislike Sajid-Wajid and Himesh.

  • That Jee Karda song from Badlapur is nice too,its video will be coming out tomorrow..loved it.

    Tu hai ki nai is good but not on levels of galiyaan or sunn raha..but still soothing.

    All PK songs are good,situational. Loved aamir copying sanjay dutt’s dancing style in tharki chokro .

  • Can I know the Basis behind this list? ?
    If it’s based on Popularity, then Katra should have been in top 10. And, if it’s quality, superman salman ka fan wouldn’t have been included.

  • In our PAKISTAN top 15 songs
    1 galliyan
    2 baby doll
    3 lovely
    4 love does (honey sing)
    5 yar na mile

  • yeah many directors do that….rajkumar hirani…vishal bhardwaj… Imtiaz ali…mohit suri…sanjay leela bansali…
    a.r.rehman music most of the times fit with the script…

  • Roy music is best of the 2015.Tu h ki nahi is a chartbuster which will able to create required buzz for roy.Suraj dooba h is peppy song for club,parties.
    But PK music is a gem,thoughtful,pitch perfect with outstanding lyrics of swanand kirkire.Shantanu,ajay-atul and ankit tiwari had given wonderful music.
    Agree with @navin that let the Raju for mastering in films and leave the music for others.
    @babaji undoubtly bhagwan song is best from pk especially visuals.I remembered when I downloaded pk album first time and listened this song,instantly I felt almost cried.Since then I was waiting for its picturization which was more amazing and though provocing.Full marks to everybody who attached with that song.
    Love is waste of time not so good in hearing but had humorous video so as tharki chokro.While chaar kadam is most soothing to ears after bhagwan song.I found dil darbadar quite avg but many loves that song.

  • @Babaji

    Yeah, that part of song was truly awesome. A guy next to me in theater literally got up from his seat during the song. I enjoyed the song much more after Pk’s release, which is the case with most Hirani films.

  • @chameleone lover nipun manwa lage is an evergreen great song that is getting its due recognition everywhere

  • On a side note- With regards to yesterdays article about 2014s Best Songs- after seeing the video on youtube then buying the song from itunes I now have decided to put Galliyan from Ek Villain in my Top 3 List replacing Jumme Ki Raat…. The song is absolutely brrrrilliant n it grows on you like no other song- Dil Darbadar was the song I have been playing the most since December but now Galliyan is addictive. Thanks Indicine for the link in the article…! Great job

  • Worst song of Jan so far is the ‘SuperApeMan’ song by ape humshakal Arjun Kapoor…. Crap video, crappy lyrics, crappier dancesteps and an even crappier music to really irritate the eardrums…! Biggest eyesore of 2014 so far is seeing Arjun get in the face of the cameraman scaring all the kiddies away…

  • @gj007

    Yeah I have seen those interviews and the last one with Komal was more insightful coz of the inclusion of Abhijat…. Really keen to hear more from them in future and pleasing aspect about that interview was Abhijat stating hes happy being a writer n not looking to become a director- too often we see good choreographers turning crap directors and forsaking their main field of expertise. Abhijat and Raju Sir work well together and good to know both will helm many projects together for the foreseeable future…!

  • @Navin

    Yeah, I’m a big fan of them. Love the way they bring something fresh each time. All izz well, Dancing cars, Gandhigiri, get well soon …. the list is unending.

    If you observed, the name of Abhijat Joshi came right after Raju Hirani in rolling credits, even before Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s name. I love the way these guys have so much mutual respect and function so well.What I love the most about them is, they are never after success. Even after giving a monster hit, Raju sir was humble in saying, “We could have done better.” No director-writer pair would have said that.

    And when the terrific trio (VVC, Raju and Abhijat sir) collaborate with a genius like Aamir Khan things can only get better. His performance in the scene where he learns Bhojpuri was out of the world. He gave nearly 15 to 20 child-like expressions while saying, “Jee” And the greatest thing about this scene is, it was a close-up continuous shot, where he had to speak like he was talking for the first time. Don’t know how he did that. Simply extra-ordinary. Thoroughly loved PK.

  • You are coming with some great articles lately! Good Going. @indicine

    But, announcing the January 2015 top songs, I guess, you guys could have waited a little longer , I mean an article close to January 3rd week could have included some more upcoming songs rather than including the songs of the last 2 months. Or this list could be updated at the end of each month?

  • @chameleon Kapoor Fan: The Chameleon word suits you not me. You can do anything to get support for your Youngistaan. So Manwa Lage must be an evergreen song for you as you are trying 2 impress SRKfans. But that doesn’t mean it should be great for others too. For me, Manwa Lage is a good song, but neither evergreen nor brilliantly composed.
