"Would they guide me why most of the film songs are in Raag Bharvin and Darbari where most of the Ghazala are composed in Raaga Maulkons?"
1.Raag Bhairvi consist of 7 sur (notes), but the beauty of this Raag is that other notes can also be included while composing any song or bandish.Also it can be sung any time.This Raag is one of the most popular Raag in composing Flim songs and folk music.
2. Darbari is sort of a heavy weight Raag, and is rarely composed in a fast pace songs.Most of the songs composed in this Raag are medium to slow pace.This Raag has been widely used in composing Ghazals.
Two very popular ghazals in Darbari
Mehdi Hasan sing Parveen Shakir
A very popular old Ghazal by S B John Sahab
3.Malkauns consist of only five sur(notes).It is used mostly in classical,semi classical,and some songs.
It is hardly used in Ghazal.
