C for Chotta Chotta (#AToZChallenge)

C is yet another alphabet that doesn’t have much songs. I scoured over Rahman’s discography to collect some evergreen numbers that have warmed my soul. Among the songs, Chotta Chotta (Female Version) from the movie Taj Mahal is my favourite. Though the male version is equally beautiful, I like this one more.

When Sujatha Mohan begins ‘Adi nee enge…’ , we are sure that we are in for a treat. A melange of traditional instruments along with a foot-tapping rhythm paves way for an aesthetically composed tune. Rahman’s vintage flute is predominant in the interlude and towards the end of the song.

Sujatha renders Vairamuthu’s poetic lyrics with ease. Her childlike voice flows like honey and is pleasing to the ears. My favourite lines are:

“Ilaimaiyin thevai edhu edhu endru

Arindhoam neeyallava…

Idhuvarai vaazhndha vaazhkaiku artham

Anbe nee sollava…”

Listen to this beautiful number here:


Other charming numbers:

  1. Chali Kahaani from Tamasha
  2. Chinna Chinna Aasai from Roja
  3. Chinna Chinna Mazhaithuligal from En Swaasa Kaatre
  4. Chaiyya Chaiyya from Dil Se
  5. Chanda Re from Sapnay
  6. Chandhiranai from Ratchagan
  7. Chupke Se from Saathiya

Let me know if I have left out any songs. 😊

Happy listening!
