Product Description

A romantic Bollywood classic, "Guide" (the film) was released in the year 1965. The movie is based on R.K. Narayan's critically acclaimed novel, "the Guide" and was listed among the top Bollywood Classics in a rating released by the Times Group. The movie was also written by Pearl S. Buck for its U.S. Version and was screened 42 years after its original release at the Cannes Film Festival in the year 2007. The U.S. version was directed and produced by Tad Danielewski. This is a great achievement in itself that the well known Hollywood artists made their version of an Indian Classic. Directed by the great Indian Filmmaker, Vijay Anand, the movie was a hit on box office and was, in many a ways, a peak point in Indian cinema. It is considered to be a masterpiece of the Indian Film Industry.

The plot is fascinating and interesting. It also depicts the lives of the have nots and the narrow mindset of people who refuse to change with changing times. The protagonist of the film are Rosie and Raju. Rosie is a pretty daughter of a prostitute, and after suffering at the hands of the society, has managed to uplift her living standards and has gained respect in society by marrying a wealthy and amiable man named Marco. Rosie has a passion for dancing but is never supported to pursue it because her husband, Marco, is against this monopoly of beggars and harlots.

Marco is a well off archaeologist and wishes to do research on caves outside of his city. He hires Raju, a tourist guide, to help him out. Marco loses himself into his work and Raju gets to spend time with Rosie as her tourist guide and a newly found supportive friend. Raju admires Rosie's dancing abilities and her passion and he adores her for her innocence. Rosie, being sick of her life with Marco, attempts suicide in vain which only leads Marco to call her names and push him farther away. Marco indulges in an affair with a local girl and upon learning this, Rosie argues with him and leaves him, rendering herself homeless. Raju offers shelter to her, inspite of his mother and brother insisting on kicking her out. Despite of his facing innumerable problems due to his association with Rosie (who was taken to be a prostitute by the whole town), Raju kept motivating her and helped her rise as a successful actress and dancer. As Rosie attains stardom, Raju falls prey to gambling. Later, he is given a two year prison sentence for forging Rosie's signatures.

So, why does he really forge his beloved Rosie's signatures? Moreover, what happens to him after his prison sentence is over? Do Raju and Rosie ever get back together? Watch the movie to find out more and lose yourself to the amazing screenplay and picturisation.

"Guide" the film was a super hit and memorable movie for the audience as well as its cast and crew. The movie was directed by Vijay Anand and produced by the great actor Dev Anand, who also portrayed the role of Raju, the protagonist of the story. The music of the movie, directed by S.$D. Burman, written by Shailendra and sung mainly by the Nightingale of India, Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammad Rafi, won the movie many awards, as did the work of Waheeda Rehman and Dev Anand. The songs of this movie were listed in the 100 greatest Bollywood songs by Planet Bollywood. The cast also includes Leela Chitnis, Kishore Sahu, Gajanan Jagirdar, Anwar Hussain, Ulhas, Rashid Khan, Krishan Dhawan, Ram Avtar and Narbada Shankar along with the above mentioned Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman.

  1.  A Movie Larger Than Life Size 31 January, 2014 On
    Guide was an excellent movie produced and directed by Vijay Anand in which the lead roles were played by Waheeda Rahman and Dev anand. Dev Anand performs the role of Raju who is a tourist guide and Rosy. Rosy has only one passion in her life and that is dance. Rosy gets married to a successful and rich businessman Marco who doesn't like about dance at all and hence does not allow his wife Rosy to dance on stage or even practice at home.

    On fine day Rosy decided to take a serious call of her life in terms of closing the chapter of her married life by leaving Marco and restart her new life by living with her passion for dance. And then Raju comes in her life that brings lot of turbulence in the life of both of them.

    Guide has excellent music, lyrics and songs. The music direction is by S D Burman. Overall an intense and engrossing evergreen romantic movie release in 1965.
