Movie Info

Vijay (Guru Dutt) writes unpopular poems about the destitute and poor. Ridiculed by his brothers and scorned by publishers, Vijay finds encouragement in a sweet prostitute, Gulabo (Waheeda Rehman). When a homeless man wearing a coat Vijay gave him is killed, Gulabo convinces a publisher to print his poems, believing Vijay to be dead. The poems are wildly popular, thanks to the myth conjured around Vijay's supposed death. When he reappears, he finds that few friends can be trusted.

    all i can say is this is as good if not better than any hollywood musical of the period. guru dutt was a true auteur of vision. too bad he died so young

    I am no expert on the history of Bollywood, but my guess is that this must be one of the original Bollywood "musicals." This really deserves a Criterion restoration as an historically significant film in its genre. I was very disappointed that the musical numbers had no captions, but it is a good story, well acted, and should be restored with a healthy dose of TLC.
