Some songs are really great. One such song is Holi Aayee Holi Aayee Dekho Holi Aayee re. We remember and hum this song on every Holi festival. As many know, this song is from Mashaal movie starring Dilip Kumar, Waheeda Rahman, Anil Kapoor, Rati Agnihotri and Amrish Puri. This film worked for Anil Kapoor as it came in his very early period of career and he faced Dilip Kumar with great efforts and succeeded. This was Yash Chopra movie as well. Music was composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar, brother of Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle. He has worked very little for Hindi films but given gem songs. Before I take you to another song enjoy this song. lyrics are given below.

Found both songs having similar tunes? Are you thinking Hindi song copied? You are half right. Both songs having similar tunes. While Hridaynath made elder sister Lata Mangeshkar singing first song (i.e. Holi Aayee) with Kishore Kumar and Mahendra Kapoor, he made Ashatai singing later song. Later song is from Marathi film Jait Re Jait, which means win-win. Mohan Agashe and Smita Patil acted in it. It was produced by one of the great Mangeshkar sisters-Usha tai. It was directed by Dr. Jabbar Patel. It won President's Silver Medal for Best Feature Film in Marathi at National Film Awards.
Jait Re Jait was released in 1977 while Mashaal in 1984. So it is obvious that later film song was totally converted to Hindi song. Both have its own flavour or mood.
