Learn what people were like whose love was found, love … Hearing this line, the name of Gurudutt’s movie ‘Pyaasa’ is on the mind. In 1957, a struggling poet performed beautifully in Pyaasa. Gurudutt, Waheeda Rehman and Mala Sinha were in the main roles of the film. Guru Dutt was such a veteran Indian actor and film director that he used to make silent scenes in hit movies with the help of light and camera.
Director Abrar Alvi was writing the story of the film Pyaasa, then he had to write the film based on the story of a struggling poet who wants to make his work popular among the people after the country’s independence. In the early days of the movie ‘Pyaasa’, it was decided that the story of the movie would be based on a kotha. But there was a problem, Guru Dutt never visited the brothel.
When he went to the closet for this movie, he was shocked to see the scene there. Here a dancer was about seven months pregnant. Even then, the people present were danced. Seeing this scene, Guru Dutt got up from there and said to his friends: “Chalons from here.” On leaving, he came out with the note pack there. After seeing all this, Dutt said that he got the Chakle scene for the song for ‘Sahir’ and the song was ‘Jinne Naz Hai Hind Par Woh Kahan Hai’.
Guru Dutt is said to have dealt with the likes and dislikes of the Muslim audience. He was aware that if Muslim audiences like a movie, they will see it over and over again. Just minding his choice, Dutt made the movie ‘Chaudhvi Ka Chand’.
Guru Dutt’s wife Geeta Dutt wanted to make a lot of changes to the Pyaasa movie, but in the end Gurudutt disagreed with any change in the movie’s story and then the movie became like Pyaasa as Guru Dutt wanted, but he played the actor in the film Geeta’s wife definitely agreed with the selection of ‘Geeta’, Geeta wanted the actor’s role in the film to be done by Gurudutt himself.
