...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. Printed Pages: 238 with numerous b/w illustrations.
