Song – Chinna Chinna Kannile from Then Nilavu
Singers – AM Raja, P Suseela
Music Composer – AM Raja
Lyricist – Kannadasan
Director – CV Sreedhar
Starring – Vyjayanthimala Bali, Gemini Ganesan
Gemini Ganesan and Vyjayanthimala don traditional Kashmiri outfits to celebrate their budding romance. Much of this film’s first half is devoted to the love-hate relationship between the leads. CV Sreedhar trains his camera on the spirited relationship they share and it makes for an enjoyable film.
AM Raja’s work has yielded an exceptional album. The composer ups the ante with Chinna Chinna, giving it a jaunty twist helped along by the enthusiastic vocal attempts of P Suseela. This has helped the song retain an universal appeal that is relevant even today.
