    मूसीक़ी का एक अव्वलीन सफ़र। उषा देशपांडे की ये Documentary हिंदुस्तानी Classical याने कि भरतिए संगीत कि बारीकियों की पेशकश है, आख़िर 'ख़याल' के मूसीक़ी में क्या माएने हैं? कितने और कौन-कौनसे घराने हैं हिंदुस्तान में? और उन्मे से कैसे-कैसे उस्ताद निकले हैं पिछली सदियों में - इन सब सवालों के जावाब देते हैं हमारे नक़ीब; पंडित ज़ाख़िर हुसेन। यहाँ झलकियाँ हैं उस हिंदुस्तान की जो शायद खोता जा रहा है, जहां 'ओम्' की ग़रज़ निकालता है एक मोहम्मदन, जहां…
