After producing 'Chaudhvin Ka Chand' (1960) based on Muslim culture of Lucknow that was directed by Saddiq Sahib, he came up with his next impressive production ' Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam' (1962). The latter film won the Presidents silver medal as well as the Film of the year award from the Bengal Film journalists Association besides going to the Berlin Film Festival and being India's official entry for the Oscars. Guru Dutt passed away during the making of the film 'Baharein Phir Aayengi' that was later completed by his brother Atmaram with Dharmendra in the lead.
Along with his own productions, Guru Dutt also worked with outside productions like Twelve o'clock (1958), Sautela Bhai (1962), Bahurani (1963), Bharosa (1963), Suhagan (1964), Sanjh Aur Savera and many others. Guru Dutt has worked opposite almost all the famous heroines of the times. In 1952, days before 'Jaal' was released Guru Dutt founded a production company in partnership with Haridasrshan Kaur, actress Gita Bali's elder sister. Unfortunately the partnership was separated soon after, due to heavy financial loss after the production of Baaz (1953). With the film Aar Par he started his own production company and a studio extension later. This house produced many successful films in future and CID (1956) was one of them in which he introduced Waheeda Rehman and then in many movies thereafter.
Even though Guru Dutt experienced his share of success and failure in his work, his personal life was not in orderly manner and by early 1964; he was separated from his wife, Geeta Dutt and was living alone. He did not enter into any more production ventures, rather started drowning in alcohol. On October 10, 1964 Hindi film world suffered a great loss, when Guru Dutt at the young age of 39 died of an overdose of sleeping pills. The prevailing magic of his films even now decades after his tragic end, bear witness to the skill of this genius who lived much ahead of his times.
Some of Guru Dutta's productions are as follows -
