|'Baagh mei.n kali khili' is an amazing song and the
film version is much longer and much better than the meagre three minute version
HMV released years back. Salil was clearly quite impressed with his own composition.
He used the melody of this song in many other songs and background music. In an
interview he did mention that one of his favourite compositions is 'Baagh mei.n'.
'Kisi ne jaadoo kiyaa' was unfortunately deleted from the film. It's a beautiful song.
As usual,HMV must have lost the master tape. The only song one finds in often repeated Salil compilations is 'Baagh mei.n'.
"jhanana jhanana baaje" is of course one of the the most beautiful raag "Kalavati" based compositions of Salil. The original bengali version recorded in 1963 by Dhananjoy Bhattyacharya still remains a masterpiece. What makes this song so memorable is Salil's clever use of "shuddha maddhyam" in antara - a note which doesn't really belong to "Kalavati" but it did create the most delightful effect. Typical Salil touch !
Incidently, raag "Kalavati" is called "Valaji" in Carnatic music. "Kalavathi" in Carnatic music is a completely different raag.
