He is an enigma, the man was ahead of his time and who left the world a little barren of creativity with his untimely demise in 1964. The man gave who gave us Kagaaz Ke Phool and other jewels like Pyasa and Sahib Bibi aur Gulam was one of the greatest filmmakers and actors to have graced Bollywood with his ideas, his creativity, his performance and his stories. The man gave Bollywood his everything and made us what we are today. Here’s the list of top Guru Dutt films selected from his filmography. You can watch some of these Guru Dutt movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hulu.
12. Bahurani (1963)
Mala Sinha as the Bahuraani helps his husband Raghu (Guru Dutt) find strength and courage within himself and face his demons and his relatives who were his greatest exploiters. Mala Sinha was fierce as Padma who wouldn’t bow down to oppression and Guru Dutt as the simpleton Raghu was exceptionally brilliant.
11. Bharosa (1963)
Wealth and marital prosperity cannot make you a decent human being and this what Guru Dutt’s film teaches. After the demise of his father he is raised by their care-taker who had inherited a lump sum amount of money in the name of caring for little Bansi(Guru Dutt) only to abuse his power. His own son though given the best of school and bookish education fails to measure up to the parameter of being a human. The film saw the dynamic duo of Guru Dutt and Asha Parekh set the screen ablaze.
