Bahut aasaan hai chilman se lagkar muskuraana

Posted on: June 2, 2012

Lata Mangeshkar has sung more duets with late Mohammad Rafi than with any other singer. The duo showered about 440 melodiously memorable gems on music lovers — beginning with “Chal ho gayi taiyaar” in “Shadi Se Pehle” (1947).

Some of their numbers have somehow ended up being lesser known than their perennial evergreens for the reasons other than melody, rendition or lyrics.

One such surpassingly sweet number is “Bahut aasaan hai chilaman se lagkar muskuraanaa” in the Geeta Bali-Shammi Kapoor-Mala Sinha starrer “Rangeen Raaten” (1956). Picturized on debonair Shammi Kapoor and demure Mala Sinha, it is a melodious banter of lovers: The boy playfully asserts how easy it is for his lover to carry on the affair smilingly at him across the slitted veil (chil’man) — to which she bewails how reckless would it be to bring their affair out in the open. Rafi and Lata have beautifully vocalized the irony of the situation expreesed in Kidar Sharma’s lyrics under Roshan’s baton.

It is interesting to note that 6 years earlier, the same lyricist-music director combine of Kidar Sharma and Roshan had also melodiously captured another — and better known — love banter in the Bawre Nain (1950) duet: “Mujhe sach-sach bataa d” with Mukesh on Shammi Kapoor’s illustrious elder brother Raj, and Geeta Dutt on Shammi’s the-then wife-to-be Geeta Bali.

Lyrics

bahut aasaan hai
chilman se lagkar muskuraanaa
bahut aasaan hai
chilman se lagkar muskuraanaa
bahut mushkil hai,
haaye
bahut mushkil hai
aakar saamane nazren
aejii nazren milaanaa
bahut mushkil hai

zamaane mein muhabbat
sab ko ho jaati hai zaalim
zamaane men muhabbat
sab ko ho jaati hai zaalim
muhabbat jisko ho,
haaye
muhabbat jisko ho
dushman huaa uskaa
aeji uskaa zamaanaa
bahut mushkil hai

udi chehre ki rangat
dhadkanon ne dil tatolaa
udi chehre ki rangat
dhadkanon ne dil tatolaa
tasavvur mein teraa,
haaye
tasavvur mein teraa
baithe-bithaaye chhed jaanaa
bahut mushkil hai

palat kar,
dekh kar,
hans kar,
jhijhak kar,
sar jhukaa kar
palat kar,
dekh kar,
hans kar,
jhijhak kar,
sar jhukaa kar
kisikaa yoon mere,
haaye
kisikaa yoon mere
soye huye armaan,
aeji armaan jagaanaa
bahut aasaan hai
chilman se lagakar muskuraanaa
bahut mushkil hai
