video
Raga Bhatiyar, an early morning melody ,was presented in the form of Jugalbandi, between the two great stalwarts of Hindustani Classical Music,Ustad Ameer Khan (Vocal) and Ustad Bismillah Khan(Shehnai)in a Hindi movie GOONJ UTHI SHEHNAI(1959).

This  beautiful jugalbandi was picturised on a 'Sangeet Guru'(played by Ulhas),who is singing in a temple before the statues of his deity Shri Radha and Krishna,in the early hours of the dawn and a boy who is exactly repeating his singing on  Shehnai,sitting beside a pillar,somewhere in the temple complex.When his Shehnai playing is noticed by Guru Ji , he himself comes to the boy and praises for his efforts .Music director of the film Vasant Desai selected this Raga Bhatiyar, as most appropriate for this sequence in the film and left everything on these two Ustads.
