The Guide 1965
A story of forbidden love between a guide and an Archeologist’s wife, Guide (1965) is one of my favourite movies. Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman were directed by Vijay Anand, 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 end of the story may have been influenced by Daaru chiriya story in buddhist canons.
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 Cannes Film Festival in 2007, 42 years after its release.
