A not~to~be~missed peep into the Creative Pehlu of the Cosmic Persona ~ GURU DUTT

through ‘Dhwani~n~Drishya‘ (audio~visual) presentation of Slides~Scenes~Songs

from his highly acclaimed Crime based and Classic films like Baazi, Jaal, Aar Paar, Mr and Mrs 55, C I D, Pyaasa, Kaagaz Ke Phool, Chaudvin Ka Chand, Sahib Bibi aur Ghulam …

Guru Dutt, with his inborn predilection towards darkness, took an affinity to embrace despair, devastation, despondency and dusky disdain! Dutt’s the way he was!!.

Gu means ‘darkness’; Ru, ‘one who dispels darkness’. The two sylabbles word connotes ‘from darkness on to light’ ! But the life and career of this GuRu saw an unique roundabout turn from a luminous life embracing the gravity of darkness !

The ‘darkness’ (I.e Gu) that he is seen embracing depicts the Ru dispelling, ironically, the light of his life; totally obliterating the ‘Vasant’ of a seasoned career; marking the beginning of a sudden end; terminating the zenith of a zany career to zilch !!!
