Yours Guru Dutt
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 the 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 Yours Guru Dutt: Intimate Letters of a Great Indian Filmmaker presents thirty-seven letters, previously unpublished, of which the vast majority were addressed to Geeta Dutt, and includes postcards sent to his sons, Tarun and Arun. Guru Dutt's correspondence paints an intimate 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.
