Seen 23 times PYASAA...but every time I found new things and dimensions .Lastly I left all my thinking and watched movies . All his movies are incompareable. I think when everyone watch gurudutt movies..person feel himself his sorrow immotions.
if somebody wud like to watch only 1 indian movie in his life I think one must go for PYAASA..this is the best indian movie released till date and forever. I dont know how come people like guru dutt cud make such a classical movie which shows a reality of this world. It clearly states this world has always revolved around money and fame only. people with gud heart have never been respected in any time.. but I salute guru ji, pls see this movie, i am a fan of guru dutt... the song in the movie ye mehlo ye takhto ye tajo ki duniya ye insan ke dushman samajo ki duniya , ye duniya agar mil bhi jaye to kya hai...
nowadys director wont even dare to listen to their heart and make movies for society or for themselves, like mahesh bhatt who just need money, why do we need we die for money which never provides happiness...
pls I chllenge all the indian directors to make such movies which old directors made like guru dutt and the next legend raj kapoor... i salute to them not to these directors who just entertain us in a fake world and never shows the real world.....

you are right and i appreciate your feelings.The world is like that and would get more worser in the days to come. Unfortunately, people are selfish and will never respect feelings of good human beings ever.Surprisingly, such characters are remembered after their demise.I guess such behavior shall continue to exist for ever till the end of civilization.You do not have any solution for that.Just watch for devastation which may occur the day SUN moves away from the planet earth.And unfortunately that may take another two three billion years to happen.So do not be serious about attitude of this society,just live your life the way it comes to you and forget the nasty people around.
After reading all these articles on guru dutt, I am curious to know if he and dev andand had separated from each other. It looks like they started off as friends but Guru Dutt went too far ahead of Dev Anand, and this created distance in them. I hope rediff will carry some piece on this topic.
hey this is really nice really believe me its good i like guru dutt but why he died its a mistrey i think he was sensitive as a child and he was depressed with love with waheeda rehman so he was unable to leave his wife and he was unable to forget waheeda and in between he was trying to convince nothing worked, he is gone never to be seen just left a mug of water from his sweet ocean we have missed him ,lord may rest his soul in peace

why landapigs r always after other religion for jihadlove trap and to get one in their trap, their all family or religion ppl unite, is it they get commission for converting other religion people. Other religion people please don't fall prey to such jihadlove and don't dig own grave like gurudutt.
one should be very careful on the information one presents...It's a big mistake- "He was the first man in India to shoot in Cinemascope, and his famous 'beam shot' in the Waqt ne kiya kya haseen sitam sequence from Pyaasa is considered a classic moment in celluloid history." It is from 'Kaagaz Ke Phool' not 'Pyasa' !
A wonderful account of a close friend on 40th death anniversary of great Guru Dutt. The memoire shows how near Mr. Murthy must be to the great director. We see the end result of the great workers. We, the audience, never know the attempts, efforts and the agony put for every scene. We come to know them only we come across such an honest version of one of the team mates.
Truly, Guru Dutt was one of the most sensitive film makers of our land. His works cannot be forgotten in times to come. Even to-day, I get nurvese for days to gather after viewing 'Pyaasa'. It happened with me some thirty years ago also it happens even to-day.
The scene discribed by Mr Murthy, of 'Kagaz ke phool', the song sequence of 'Waqt ni kiya...' was acclaimed by me in many of my Gujarati articles in local publications. It is one of the Best lighting effect of all times.
Thanks rediff and Mr. Murthy for remembering Guru Dutt on the occasion and we got a close look of the great Dutt.
Indeed, Guru Dutt was a genious to the core. As a teenager, I recall that it was Guru Dutt alone , who had his own style and gossips were always around with every heroine, he starred with. Be it Mala Sinha or Waheeda Rehman. It was the personal touch in his Direction that every heroine of his looked empotionally attached to him as per general perception. I have heard lot of other personal stories about him -his leftist views on politics ; his old associates like K.A.Abbas, Kaifi Azmi , Balraj Sahni and others through his old associates in Bombay (now Mumbai) then. Unfortunately the Government never recognized his talent during his life time and he died - in harness , if not a pauper. My condolence on his Death Anniversary. Vinod Tuli - a freelance journalist
