Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam - Movie

1962. Abrar Alvi's adaptation of Bimal Mitra's novel set in Bengal, in the pre-partition days. The decadence ways of the landlords, a platonic relationship between the choti bahu and a lowly clerk. Makes it to the top 100 movies of all time. Guru Dutt was refreshingly different, Waheeda Rehman stunningly beautiful and Meena Kumari, a revelation. Check her story out, it's as fascinating as any film story.
