Ik ritu aaye, ik ritu jaaye (Sau Saal Baad - 1966)


Ik ritu aaye, ik ritu jaaye Lata Mangeshkar & Manna Dey - Raagmala - Sau Saal Baad (1966) The movie was not very successful, but excellent compositions by MDs L & P. this may be one of the best raagmalas to be composed for Hindi films.. Beautiful lyrics by आनंद  बख्शी.

1st song ‘एक  ऋतु  आये, एक  ऋतु  जाए, दीप जलाये, दीप बुझाए, कभी हंसाये, कभी रुलाये|...’ is sung by मन्ना  डे initially, लता  joining to make it a duet - a  very rare राग - धन्य धैवत  in तीन  ताल |.

[others compositions in this rare raaga:

Bahadur Shah Zafar - Ya Mujhe Afsar

Ya Mujhe Afsar-e Shahana Banaya Hota -Ahmed & Mohammed Hussain Ghazal,

na kisi ki aankh ka noor hoon- Habeeb wali Muhammad 



2nd composition '
जिया  नाहीं  लागे  का  करूँ  सजना, तुझ बिन सूना लागे अंगना | आये न मोरे नैनों में निंदिया, साजे न मोरे माथे पे बिंदिया || बाजे न मोरी बाहों में कंगना |..' is sung beautifully by लता  in राग  आभोगी .

At 1:24 - impressive violin piece in raga आभोगी played by Pt.Husn Lal, who gave hit music in many Hindi films of 40s & 50s, with his brother…

Next, the interlude is in teentaal drut, goes on to rupak taal at ghir aayi...

The next (3rd) composition is again a duet by लता  & मन्ना  डे: घिर  आयी  कारी  कारी बदरिया, धड़के जियरा, चमके बिजुरिया | ऐसे लागे कजरे बदरा, जैसे तोरे नैनों का कजरा || छोडो सांवरिया |  ..’in राग  मेघ  मल्हार  & रूपक  ताल.

The 4th & last number ‘खिल गयीं कलियाँ, नैना ढूंढे साजन की गलियां | सामा मापा गामा | नीधा नीसा सा नी सा... खिल गयीं खिल गयीं ...’ is another duet in raaga बसंत  बहार  in तीन  ताल.
