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.

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)
Hithesh, USA

You guys are beyond amazing. The books you provide not many places have and I for one am so thankful to have found you.
Lulian, UK
This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
