naina-khoobsurat

The movie Khoobsurat released this Friday to limited responses. Naina is the only romantic number in the movie’s music track. Interestingly, the song was added as an afterthought as the producers felt the movie lacked a love song. Good they thought that else this song would not have happened!

I have become a fan of Sona Mohapatra’s voice. Remember the song Ambarsariya? This one is equally good though music is not purely acoustic.

If you are not aware, the music director of this movie is Sneha Khanwalkar who also gave music to the Gangs of Wasseypur movies. She is one music director to watch out for! But the music of this song is composed by Amaal Malik. Check out the Preet song by Sneha which is quite similar to the song ‘Kaala’ from Gangs of Wasseypur.

The song is in the key of Eb. The guitar chords are not very simple, but you can use a capo on 1st fret to make it easier to play.

Chords are:

Ebsus2 | Abmaj9 | Bbsus4 | Cm | Fm

Using capo on 1st fret:

Dsus2 | Gmaj9 | Asus4 | Bm | Em

I like to play the Bm differently, instead of holding the bar, just lift the index finger to only hold the root note not the complete bar. So Bm=(x24430). With capo Bm=(x35540). Not sure what to call this chord hence named it Bm itself.

As far as strumming pattern goes, there is no one pattern that can be played throughout the song. Listen to the song and play along with it.

Finally the song:
