Ahir Bhairav

Ahir Bhairav in Hindi Bollywood Films

Ahir Bhairav is one of the most widely used Indian Ragas in Bollywood Hindi Films. When I think about Ahir Bhairav in Hindi film, the song “Pucho Na Kaise Maine” by Manna Dey comes to mind. Ahir Bhairav is an early morning Raga and characterized by the use of Komol Re and Komol Ni. Interestingly the Tala of ther Raag Ahir Bhairav does not belong to any of the ten “thats” in Indian Classical.
