I am no expert but I heard Yaman, Bihag, Jaunpuri at different times in the song. It is truly "misra-madhura-raag"

p-3,
There is absolutely no trace of Behag here.'
My reference for Behag are
Naanege Badavanu - Purandara Dasa - sung by Smt. MS

--------
Aadum Chithambaramo - Smt.MS- Gopala Krushna Barathy.
---------------------------------------------------
The duet song under discussion may be based on Rabindra Sangeet, might have been tuned by Dilip Kumar Roy himself.
It may not correspond exactly to any ragam of CM but a variation on Hamsadwani.
As I hum it, I find some parts( most) similar to Hamsadwani
aruL puRivaay karuNaikkadale by Smt.MS
https://sites.google.com/site/homage2ms ... uikkadalae

and 'chaand jahaan ' tune by CRamachandra sung by Lata-Aasha in Sarada Hindi film

https://youtu.be/GcR605uDa_0
( the song-audio- has been donated to you tube,)
but may be marred by advertisement clip.
kindly ignore the advt- if any )

Of course, it could be Hamsadwani with some related ragam-mixed. in Bengali Sangeeth.

Well SuphalAm actually lands at catuSruti daivatam. But then they do PMG , SMGGPMP (Sasya SAmaLam) etc.

Based on note usage, I will upgrade your suggestion if you are dead against taking cognizance of madyama usage. The scale of what is being sung is : Niranjani, which goes as S-R2-G3-P-D2-N3-S & S-N3-D2-P-G3-R2-S .

Niranjani by SrI K.J.Yesudas is here - his own composition:

Now this is a rAgA in Niranjani asampURNa mEla ( well it is not a mELa is it?) with a double bhashanga of double madyama ;) :D .

Not likely
Hamsadwani is the nearest.
