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.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
