1. Chalo bulava aaya hai mata na bulaya hai(Avtaar): It is widely believed that Avtaar which was one of Rajesh Khanna’s last hits became a craze largely due to this Maata Bhajan sung in full-throated glory by Narendra Chanchal and accompanied by Mahendra Kapoor and Asha Bhosle. Audiences flocked repeatedly to this film to see Rajesh Khanna and Shabana Azmi trekking to the Vaishno Devi temple.
2. Tuney mujhe bulaya sherawaliye(Aasha): Narendra Chanchal and composer Laxmikant-Pyarelal reunited for this number after Avtaar. And when Aasha too became a superhit it was widely believed that a song in praise of Durga Maa ensured a hit.This tume Chanchal , the Mata special, was joined by the great Mohammad Rafi.Two powerful voices united to sing in praise of Durga Maa. Jai ho!
3. O Mata bhawaani sakal jag ki rani(Jay Vijay): Usually Maata bhajans are loud boisterous vigorous and rabble-rousing. This one composed by Rajesh Roshan and sung gloriously by Lata Mangeshkar is soft gentle and undulating .It’s a different experience. Try it for tranquility.
4. Jai ambe jagdambe maa(Krantiveer): Praful Dave, Sapna Awasthi, Sudesh Bhosle get together to belt out an exuberant Navratri song. The Laxmikant-Pyarelal composition doesn’t aim to do anything out of the box. It is a conventional ditty targeted at dandiya devotees. That’s the way they like it.
5. Jai ambe jagdambe maa(Heera):Feel the force of Lata Mangeshkar’s divine voice as she sings this incredibly zigzagged number in praise of Durga Maa. Actress Asha Parekh who danced to the song in the film says she has seldom had more problem following the rhythms of a song.Mysterious are the ways of the Gods.
