1.Ganapati bappa agle baras tum jaldi aana(Aansoon Bane Angaaray): This is a rare Ganapati song by Lata Mangeshkar. Though she has sung innumerable bhajans in films I don’t think she has done too many Ganapati numbers for cinema. This one composed by Rajesh Roshan for Mehul Kumar’s Aansoon Bane Angaaray is beat-friendly and yet rendered gorgeously melodious as only Lataji can do with devotional lines.
2. Ganpati apne gaon chale(Agneepath): The Bachchan baritone contributes to this booming Laxmikant-Pyarelal chorus-driven number.He invests heft into Sudesh Bhosle, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Anupama Deshpande number. Truly epic Ganpati number.
3. Devashree Ganesa(Agneepath): Though this Agneepath was a very poor remake of the Bachchan original, the Ganpati song in this one compared well with the original. To music composer Atul-Ajay’s credit they did not copy the original. Instead they tailored the Bappa song to Hrithik Roshan’s sinewy body language.
4. Deva oh deva ganpati deva(Humse Badkar Kaun): Lataji’s sister Asha Bhosle lends her voice to this vocally-vibrant but compositionally weak Ram Laxman tune. The song is star-studded with singers Mohammed Rafi, Bhupinder, Shailendra Singh and Sapan Chakraborty joining Asha Bhosle in a structurally shaky but nonetheless powerful Ganpati number.
5. Gajanana(Bajirao Mastani): Composed by filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and sung by Sukhwinder Singh this Ganapati number is powered by Ranveer Singh’s electrifying screen presence. No one can drive a dance tune up the waltz-like Ranveer. His feet were born to dance for Ganapati.
