O majhi re Sargam Notes

Sargam ( notation ) for song O majhi re
Singer : Kishore Kumar
Film : Khushboo (1975)

A sheer masterpiece by the Trio Magicians – RD+KK+Gulzar, this song is my all time favourite.  What a composition, what lyrics and what singing!! Simply out of this world.  You just have to listen to this song with eyes closed, and you will in no time be floating on a boat.

Jotting down the notations proved to be a tough task for me, even tougher than the flute cover that I made for this song (click the link at the end).  I played it on my F# flute, taking first note as “Re”.  There are many places in this song which makes it so lovable, like, the dipping tune on the word “Kinaraaaaa”, the interlude music with flutes, the “puk-puk” sound with the bottle, etc.  I have tried my best to note down the Sargam notations of all these – may not be to the perfection, but workable.

Hope you will enjoy these notations on your instruments.

  1. Thanks so much… I seem to have a newly developed love for music, and was looking for the sargam notes of this song. It helps me make my singing better …

    Would you know which is the raag in this song?

    1. Thanks for your appreciation.

      R D Burman was a genius who could make such kind of music. His experiments with music gave us treasures like this song. RD was never afraid of mixing more than one raag in his compositions. Though I’m not very sure, but this song – O Majhi Re – also seems to be an amalgamation of two raags viz., Shivranjani and Khamaj.


      1. Thank you for the Cheers!
        My notations work well in most of the instruments including Piano. But yes, you may have to transpose.
        Good luck!

  2. So so happy to have stumbled on this page. I play the Saxophone and these notes were amazing to play the Saxophone, to this classic song and wonderful composition of O Majhi Re.

  3. If your Flute is in F sharp what Key are you playing the song in? Is it C as the Original?

    But the starting Note in the Original Key of C is…G, A Sharp then C or Pa, Dha (flat) and Sa…..

    So how does your Re note fit in?
