Melodrama

Ghost-like, an old man enters a deserted film studio. Sitting in the dark, his life unfolds in flashback, taking him to a past in which he reigned as celebrated film director. Despite his enormous success, director Suresh Sinha is unhappy and lonely. He is separated from wife Bina and fights a losing battle with his in-laws for the custody of his only daughter. Amidst the personal chaos of his life, he meets the beautiful Shanti. She becomes his favourite actress and muse. But Suresh Sinha is unable to escape his inner demons, and everything he owns and loves slips away from him.


• This first Indian Cinemascope film was a box-office flop. Guru Dutt chose not to sign any other film under his name. The song Waqt Ne Kiya is still considered one of the best filmed songs of Hindi cinema.
