Comments - This may have the notes of Darbari but it certainly does not move like Darbari, it tends to slide around between Darbari, Jaunpuri and Adana.  If you are trying to get a feel for how Darbari works, you had better look elsewhere.

Comments - At times this is pretty good example of Darbari, but just when you think they have nailed it, they throw in a touch of Shuddha Nishad.  This gives it a hint of Adana.  If you ignore these small lapses, then you can use this piece to get an idea as to how Darbari is structured.

Comments - This starts off as a an extremely good example of Darbari Kanada, but then it goes off in different directions.  I suppose that is to be expected with Bollywood :-)
