Movie: Namastey London (2007)
Flute used for notations : C#
I think this is the only song composed by Himesh Reshamiya which will be remembered for years to come.
At first I thought I’d never be able to write down the Sargam for this song due to the sudden change of octave – right from low to high – that happens in the Sthayi part. But this song is so beautiful that I had to play it on my flute. After many trials, I finally hit that high note correctly with Gandhar of Taar Saptak (G’). This was the only most difficult note to find out in this song. Rest of the song, otherwise, was easy. Only at few places, the Komal Dhaiwat (d) and Komal Nishad (n) are used. Murkis on words “yaad” and “dil” are difficult but not impossible. Just a little practice will do.
