Guru Dutt: A Tragedy in Three Acts is the poignant, multi-layered account of a troubled genius of the Hindi cinema by Arun Khopkar.

Summary of the Book

The original Marathi version of this book won the National Award for Best Book on Cinema, and is now available in English. Guru Dutt’s name is today heard along with the legends of world cinema, including Hitchcock, Mizoguchi, Ophuls, and Orson Welles among others. His innovative cinematic form was best known for deep compassion and humanism. Drawing on the three masterpieces of Guru Dutt’s life: Pyaasa, Kaagaz Ke Phool, and Sahib, Biwi Aur Ghulam, Arun Khopkar attempts to examine the genius’s life closely. He delves into the historical context during the time of making of these films that must have moved Dutt keenly. His movies were epics in their own right with impeccable acting, music, lyrics, lighting, editing and rhythm.

Perfect Examination of the Guru Dutt's Work

I was very eager to know about a man,who thought beyond the time..
A man who always knew wht would be the future..
While going through the pages of this book,,all you are going to get is the marvellous & amazing work of Guru Dutt.
The use of shadows & light ,,the song's picturisation,,the background,,dialouges..
But let me make you one thing clear ,,this book doesnt give an account of Guru Dutt life...
This book tell mainly what author thinks about the three Guru Dutt's Film-
