    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

    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 Beautiful Insight

    This book offers an insight into the life of perhaps the most iconoclastic director of his time and perhaps of all time in Indian cinema. The perspective is fresh, told from he point of view of Abrar Alvi, Guru Dutt's colleague and confidante.

    Definitely a treat for all film buffs and everyone else who wants to have a vintage delectable slice of the most happening film industry of the world.

    A must read.

    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.
