‘Chinna Chinna Kannile’ From Then Nilavu


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.
