However if “Pyaasa” is viewed as a proper musical, which it may very well be given its succession of non-stop songs, kindly peruse other sources for a rev...Read More

Pyaasa (1957) is a masterpiece from a master craftsman, Guru Dutt. This was Guru Dutt’s first tryst with serious cinema. It delves into the very human need for love, recognition and spiritual fulfillment and Guru Dutt ably tells you the same thru the story of a poet, rejected by an uncaring worl...Read More

Guru Dutt's much acclaimed Pyaasa is widely accredited of being a honourable departure from the formulaic fare of that period. While at the helms Pyaasa indeed harbours a deep spiritual revelation that denounces materialistic pleasure, at the same time that view is very lopsided, anachronistic, ...Read More
