A Peek into the Golden Era

An involved work which gives a glimpse into the life of one of India's brilliant film maker. The book is almost but not quite a period piece too.
Great reading for the lovers of film-making history in particular & nostalgia in general. A must read for all fans of the master.

take with a pinch of salt

For fans of Guru Dutt this book is a bit of a let down. interesting in parts,but more about the greatness of Mr. Alvi than any thing else.He seems to harbour a grudge against Geeta Dutt which may have clouded his memories of past events.Since she is not alive to defend herself we hear only one side of the story. Otherwise a well written book.

A mixed review

First of all, let me get it straight..I wanted something which was wholeheartedly on the legendary film maker..Instead the book is interspersed with Abrar Alvi's own life story as well..Some parts were really good, like all the real stories which he has told regarding Guru Dutt. But then a specific biographical account was missing in this book.

Not great

It sounds more of a Abrar Alvi's story rather Guru Dutt. Abrar boasted enough about himself instead sharing the nostalgia with the legend.Otherwise its good.Saran ha beautifully narrated it giving the right context in each chapter.I would rate it a 3/5
