Guru Dutt – Undisputed Genius

Guru Dutt Sahab is one man everyone in Hindi Cinema would agree was blessed with great abilities both as an actor and director.. I would say he was more of a director could also act brilliantly.. his films like Pyaasa, Kagaz Ke Phool (though a failure at box office then) and Baazi (he did not act in it) are some of the best directorial works of Hindi cinema.. it is a bit tragic that such a great genius as he was had committed suicide.. Well we are here to celebrate his birth anniversary today.. and surprisingly it is also the birthday of yet another great actor Sanjeev Kumar or Haribhai as he was popularly known.. and yet another that of dear Tabassum.. who may not have made as big successful actor she definitely had a very long career in terms of years.. however she is part of another RMSG sequel which actually should not be called RMSG specifically.. Coming back to Guru Dutt sahab.. he is no stranger to RMSG lovers.. his wife Geeta Dutt is probably the richest in terms of Rupaye Mei Solah Gaane.. she has four sequels on her.. so I could actually have left out doing a RMSG on Guru Dutt.. yet that would be wrong.. such artists like him and Sanjeev Kumar are not born every day.. I would also try and do a RMSG on Haribhai if it is possible.. for brevity songs from films like Bharosa, Chaudhavin Ka Chand have been included besides only the most popular songs which may have already made appearances here. ‘ Jaane Wo Kaise Log Thhe Jinke.. ‘ makes probably most appearances..
