India had a golden age in art and culture in the 1950s. Independence sparked a robust, questioning artistry. While Satyajit Ray was pioneering the nation's art cinema, commercial film-makers such as Raj Kapoor (Awaara), Mehboob Khan (Mother India) and Bimal Roy (Do Bigha Zamin) were grafting influences from Hollywood melodramas and Italian neo-realism onto the Indian tradition of musical narrative. Pyaasa, which means thirst, is the most soulfully romantic of the lot.

Vijay (Dutt) is an unpublished poet, dismissed by family and office colleagues but befriended by a prostitute (Waheeda Rehman). In a twist out of Sullivan's Travels, Vijay is believed dead, and his poetry posthumously lionized. The writer-producer-director-star paints a glamorous portrait of an artist's isolation through dappled imagery and the sensitive picturizing of S D Burman's famous songs. And Waheeda Rehman, in her screen debut, is sultry and radiant — a woman to bring out the poet in any man, on screen or in the audience.

Weaving the magic of Pyaasa, one more time, at Prasads Preview Theater, is Moving Images - The Film Club, that's the brain child of Bimal Roy's daughter, Aparichita.
