लागणे(lAgaNe) is a one verb. But it has many different meanings !!
Generally sentence structure will follow this pattern. 


Form of subject with preposition "to"              
object        
form of  लागणे(lAgaNe) as per object
मला (malA)
बादली (bAdalI )                               
लागते (lAgate)


1) To Need

 There is subtle difference in "To need" and "To want". A need is something you have to have, something you can't do without. A good example is food. 
A want is something you would like to have. It is not absolutely necessary, but it would be a good thing to have. A good example is music.

So to indicate "To need" in colloquial Marathi, we use verb लागणे(lAgaNe).

Sentence structure is same as above

I will need bucket -> मला बादली लागेल (malA bAdalI lAgel)

4) To be hungry -> भूक लागणे (bhUk lAgaNe
To be thirsty ->  तहान लागणे ( tahAn lAgaNe)
"तहान" and "भूक" are both feminine singular nouns. So verb form will be created accordingly.

I was hungry -> मला भूक लागली. (malA bhUk lAgalI.)
She was hungry -> तीला भूक लागली. (tIlA bhUk lAgalI.)
I was  thirsty -> मला तहान लागली. (malA tahAn lAgalI.)
