Comments - If you are looking for a good example of Kirwani, then this song is a bit troublesome. True, the main theme just screams of Kirvani, but aside from that, it lapses into the typical Bollywood kichidi. One should especially note the un-kirvani-ish (how do you like that word? I made it up myself.) way in which both Nis are used.
Comments - It is basically a pretty well structured Kirvani, except that Ghulam Ali, true to his style, just cannot resist the temptation to go off-rag. At least when the filmwallas go off-rag, you can see the purpose in it, but with Ghulam Ali there just seems to be no discernible artistic reason.
Comments - It goes without saying that this piece deviates from Kirvani by the use of notes which are foreign to the rag. It is interesting to note that when most film-wallas go "off rag", they do so by using alternate forms of a note which are not allowed. However in this case, such notes form a chromatic phrase. The result is that when this song goes "off - rag ", it is very much put in the foreground.
Comments - At first this seems to be a surprisingly good example of Kirvani. But on closer inspection one problem comes up. There is the use of both Nis. Although the use of the Shuddha Ni, brings it squarely in line with Kirvani, the use of the Komal Ni gives it the colour of the Darbari group of rags.
