When the words “Kitna Haseen Hai Jahaan” cross the eyes, the mind may bring in the memories of an OP Nayyar melody sung by Asha ji from the 1968 film Humsaayaa. (That song is actually titled ‘Kitna Haseen Hai Ye Jahaan’). But there is another, very beautiful and enchanting melody from eleven years before, wherein once again, Asha ji has sung a similar titled song, and music this time around is by N Dutta. I am now writing about this song from the 1957 film ‘Mr. X’. A film that is more famous for probably the raciest song that Rafi Saab has rendered in Hindi films, “Laal Laal Gaal Jaan Pe Hain Laagoo”. Here is another delightful melody from this film, that must hold out to be one of the most endearing song by Asha ji, describing the setting of the sun and the oncoming nightfall, and the emotions it brings to a heart in love. The words are lovely, the composition is soft and melodious, all the right ingredients for an evening song for lovers.
