Singer : Kumar Sanu
Lyricist : Javed Akhtar
Music Director : R D Burman
Movie : 1942 A Love Story (1995)

Sargam produced on : F scale flute

RDB’s final film. And, he showed the world why is he the King of Music!  What a composition, what lyrics by Javed Akhtar!  As they say, the best of a singer can only come out with good lyrics and great composition.  Kumar Shanu’s voice stands out perfectly for this song. 

I had been trying to figure out the notations for this song for a very long time.  I tried with Sa as the first note. Failed. Tried with Pa as the first note. Failed.  Dha, came close. But, failed. Every time I would stuck at the Antara after the interlude tune.  Then accidentally, I stumbled upon a video on YouTube where Pt. Ronu Mojumdar, who happens to be the Flutist in this composition, was playing this song.  The filler tunes played by him have become immortal with this song.  I followed his fingers and Bingo!  Ga was the correct first note for the word “Kuchh”.  Then with this note, the entire song came out well on my F scale (Bass) flute. 

Pay attention to play Tivr Ma, Komal Ga and Komal Ni wherever indicated.  Use Meend (R~g~G) for that signature flute piece.  I hope you will enjoy this song on your flute and other instruments.  Let me know with your comments.
