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.

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 :)

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.
