"Chikku Bukku Rayile" is a song, sung in Tamil, featured in the 1993 Tamil film Gentleman. The song was written by the film's noted musical duo, composer A. R. Rahman and lyricist Vaali. It was performed by Suresh Peters and G. V. Prakash Kumar.
This song features many styles of music mixed in together to form a catchy tune and a memorable sense for the song. This song has become one of the most popular music styles of the age in the Southern Indian area, as well as other parts of the India.
On its release, the song proved to be a thrilling shock for the Tamil audience who were only exposed to cine light music (a genre that fuses native music with western). Suresh Peters had sung the song using a distinct diction resembling the slang of urban, English speaking youngsters. The music immediately was well received and became a cult. It is still considered one of the best songs from the academy award winning composer A. R. Rahman.
National award winner Prabhu Deva choreographed and performed on the camera for the song. His elder brother Raju Sundaram, who is also a renowned choreographer, makes a cameo for an interlude.
Chikku Bukku Rayile's music video tells the story of dance phenomenon Prabhu Deva trying to flirt with a girl (Gouthami), as the girl tries to leave him in all directions. The song is sung mixed with English to give it the Chennai slang feel. This style propelled it to be a hit song.
