Guru Dutt (A Tragedy in Three Acts)
Guru Dutt (A Tragedy in Three Acts)
Description

Back of the book

Guru Dutt is now named along with the masters of world cinema-like Orson Welles, Mizoguchi, Hitchcock, Jancso, Ophuls-for his innovative cinematic from and his deep humanism and compassion. In Guru Dutt: A Tragedy in Three Acts, renowned Film-maker and Scholar Arun Khopkar Sheds New light on Dutt’s genius through a close examination of Dutt’s three best-known films-Pyaasa, Kaagaz ke Phool and Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam. With a nuanced eye, Khopkar explores the historical context which influenced Dutt’s deeply melancholic style while also analysing the intricacies of the medium-acting, lighting, music, editing, rhythm-that Dutt carefully deployed to create his masterpieces.

Originally written in Marathi, this exquisite English translation paints a layered portrait of a troubled genius for whom art was not merely a thing of beauty but a visit part of living itself.

Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
