This review is from: Pyaasa [DVD]  (DVD)
Approaching 60 years old, dark, high-contrast, tragedy-noire perhaps close to the pathos of Douglas Sirk, who would have been in Hollywood a contemporary of Guru Dutt, and the drama of Orson Welles. A superb pice of cinema that tugs at the romantic heart in many of us. Enjoyable and sets the scene for Dutt's masterpiece "Kagoz Ki Phool" or Paper Flowers. Dutt over-dosed or committed suicide six or seven years later and there are those who believe every film he ever made was his visualisation of the melancholia that perhaps drowned his soul, like it does with many of us. Must watch.
