Yours Guru Dutt Intimate Letters of a Great Indian Filmmaker
Yours Guru Dutt Intimate Letters of a Great Indian Filmmaker
Description
From the Jacket:

In 1951, when filmmaker Guru Dutt was twenty-six years old, he met the talented playback singer Geeta Roy. A few days later, when he wrote her a first letter, it marked the beginning of a correspondence that spanned a 13-year-long relationship - from their courtship and turbulent marriage to the troubled years that ultimately led to Guru Dutt's tragic suicide in 1964.

Yours Guru Dutt: Intimate Letters of a Great Indian Filmmaker presents thirty-seven letters, previously never published, of which the vast majority addressed to Geeta Dutt, and includes postcards sent to his sons, Tarun and Arun. Guru Dutt's correspondence paints an inmate portrait of the passions and obsessions of a tormented cinema genius.

There is often a divide between an artist and his creations but it is evident that Guru Dutt's films closely echo the inner turmoil that permeates these heartfelt outpourings.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
