Man Anand Anand Chhayo
Film - Vijeta

Comments - This starts off as a good example of Ahir Bhairav, but then towards the end it starts to mix elements that are not within the rag

Comments - This starts of as a fairly pure version of Ahir Bhairavi, but very quickly there is a lot of mixing of non-Ahir Bhairav elements.  It is not a good example of Ahir Bhairav.

Comments - This is a very good example of Ahir Bhairav with very little mixing of other rags.  This example is generally held up to be the benchmark for a filmi Ahir Bhairav.
