Comments - True to Bolliwood style, this song shows a fair amount of mixing.  This piece does not really feel like Basant Mukhari.  It feels like a Bhairav with an occasional use of Komal Nishad.  Although we are classifying it here as Basant Mukhar, there is a definite lack of commitment to this on our part.
