1 Nasreen Munni Kabir
Guru Dutt: A Life in Cinema (New Edition)
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 019567233X / 9780195672336; New Edition; Paperback; New; New; 
...Guru Dutt was a master. See the way he handled the camera, the actors and the lighting...The black and white movies always managed to capture the mood. Maybe the fascination for Guru Dutt has lasted for two reasons: his early death and that he made genuinely interesting films. If you see Pyaasa or Sahib Bibi aur Ghulam, the subjects are contemporary, it's not like, "tabhi hota tha abhi nahin. (That was the old days, it never happens now.)" Guru Dutt's films were about human emotions and they don't change.' -- Farhan Akhtar, Film Director Nasreen Munni Kabir traces the life of this gifted and unusual man through studies of his films and many interviews with his family, friends, and work colleagues. The book describes in careful detail the making of such classics as Pyaasa, Kaagaz ke Phool , and Sahib Bibi aur Ghulam, providing invaluable information for those who know the quiet brilliance of Guru Dutt's films. Technicians, music directors, actors and others who worked closely with Guru Dutt, recount the experience of knowing him, and their memories uncover aspects that are less known. Originally published in 1996, this was one of the first in-depth studies of an Indian director, some years before 'Bollywood' and anything asociated with it had stirred curiosity across the world. This new edition with appealing visuals, brings to life Guru Dutt's vivid and complex personality through observations on his films and through the voices of the many who knew him. Complete with photographs and a filmography, this book is a must-have for all cinephiles, especially the general reader and the student interested in Indian cinema.

4 Nasreen Munni Kabir
The Dialogue of Pyaasa: Guru Dutt's Immortal Classic (with DVD)
Om Books Intenational; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380070537; First Edition; Paperback with a DVD; New; 
Great films come from great writing and the aim of The Dialogue of Pyaasa, Guru Dutt’s Immortal Classic is to preserve in book form the film’s complete dialogue by Abrar Alvi and songs/poems by Sahir Ludhianvi. These are presented in Hindi, Urdu and Romanised scripts. Generously illustrated, the dialogue is also accompanied by an English translation, introduction and extensive commentary by Nasreen Munni Kabir. First-rate screenwriter, Abrar Alvi has created superb scenes and subtle lines. Skilled in giving personality to every Pyaasa character, Alvi’s flair for lived-in expression turns Guru Dutt as Vijay or Johnny Walker as Abdul Sattar into real people. Pyaasa’s other excellent writing comes from Sahir Ludhianvi’s sublime songs and poetry. This master Urdu poet has been widely acknowledged for elevating the film songs to a poetic form and this is in full evidence in the film. Sahir’s Marxist ideology, brilliant imagination and deep understanding of human emotions are the soul of Pyaasa. Guru Dutt’s Pyaasa is a stirring example of cinema’s power, enhanced by its marvellous dialogue and songs. Printed Pages: 240. 037394
