Ten Years with Guru Dutt PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Ten Years with Guru Dutt free pdf In Ten Years with Guru Dutt: Abrar Alvi's Journey, Sathya Saran looks at the tumultuous yet incredibly fecund relationship between the mercurial director and his equally talented albeit unsung writer, a partnership that evolved over a decade till Guru Dutt's tragic death in 1964. Starting his career as a driver and chaperone to Guru Dutt's producer on the sets of Baaz, Abrar soon caught the attention of the director with his sharp ear for and understanding of film dialogue. With Aar Paar in 1954, Abrar rewrote the rules of dialogue-writing in Hindi cinema, till then marked by theatricality and artificiality. He followed it up with masterpieces like Mr and Mrs '55, Pyaasa and Kaagaz Ke Phool, before donning the director's mantle with great success in Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam. Brimming with lively anecdotes - about how Abrar honed his skills by writing over 300 love letters- how an accident involving a buffalo led to the discovery of Waheeda Rehman- Guru Dutt's visit to a kotha to get the ambience right for Pyaasa - this acclaimed book is a warm and insightful look at two remarkable artistes who inspired each other to create movie magic.
