    I believe the song is in F#MAJOR. Itried this piece out with an appregiation oF c# major and b major (both barred versions)

    G---------6---------------4--- 4----------------

    C#mAJOR Bmajor

    The barre shapes are

    c#major Bmajor

    E 4 2
    A 6 4
    D 6 4
    G 6 4
    B 4 2
    E X x

    Hope this sounds good enough

    From the 'miniscule' amount of knowledge i have gathered, the phrase carnatic chords may be incorrect to use.. as the harmony component is not evident explicitly in carnatic music...

    The scale is in C#.
    Twarak, your chords are also compatible. You can replace your B chord with G#m7. G#m7 can be substituted with B, as you did, but on the song you can hear the bass line on G#. So playing B with G# bass forms G#m7.

    (B chord= B+D#+F#. If you play with G# bass, it becomes G#+B+D#+F#, which is nothing but G#m7)

    And yup.. carnatic chords is a wrong term. Anyhow, he asks chords in form of carnatic notation I believe.

    Sa Ga Pa makes C#
    Pa Ni2 Ri Ma makes G#m7

    Pick the above notes from the raaga - Shankarabarnam formed using C# as Sa.
