Post Guide


Guide is a 1965 Hindi film starring Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman. It was directed by Vijay Anand, who also contributed to the screenplay. The film is based on the critically acclaimed novel, The Guide, by R. K. Narayan, and is widely considered to be one of the masterpieces of the Indian film industry.

The film proved to be a box office hit upon release. This movie proved memorable for its award-winning performances by the lead actors and memorable music by S. D. Burman.

A 120-minute U.S. version was made with additional directing and writing. It was produced by Tad Danielewski. The film was screened at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival, 42 years after its release.

Post Re: Guide
My favorite of the Bollywood movies I've seen so far. Both a really charismatic/entertaining story anchored by my favorite Indian actor I've seen in Anand, while also being a cynical punch in the nuts under the surface. Probably the most intriguing I've seen thematically because I'm not sure whether it's more critical of people who let modernness manipulate them, or on the other end of the spectrum, foolish enough to believe you can act like it doesn't exist. Either way there's a good chance you get fucked up I guess. Director has major balls to both take a dump on ideals from that perspective, and to show an affair with a married woman + show the evaporation of a love relationship after the supposed happy ending. Cuttin it like a knife!
