Guru Dutt, Bollywood Guru


Though his film output was cut short when he died at the young age of 39, Guru Dutt (1925 - 1964) remains one of the greatest visionaries in Indian cinema. Often referred to as India's Orson Welles and equally famous as director, producer and actor, Dutt was named one of the greatest film directors of all time by the influential Sight & Sound magazine. In particular, both Thirst (1957) and Paper Flowers (1959) are acknowledged as classics, having appeared in Time magazine's 100 Best Films of All Time list. It is through his works that commercial Hindi films began to achieve artistic and lyrical qualities, leading to what is now known as the Golden Age of Bollywood cinema. In particular, he is considered to be a pioneer in the filming of songs. This mini-retrospective includes three films with Dutt as director and actor, and one with him as lead only.
