Aar-Paar (English: This or That) is a 1954 Indian noir-comedy Hindi-language film. Directed by Guru Dutt, it has music by O.P. Nayyar and lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri. A light-hearted film (unlike those of Dutt's later years), Aar-Paar stars Johnny Walker, Shyama, Shakila, Jagdeep, Jagdish Sethi.

Raj Khosla and Atma Ram, Guru Dutt's brother assisted Guru Dutt in film direction.[1]


Kalu is a migrant taxi-driver in Mumbai.[2] He has two women who love him and would like to marry him. Kalu first wants to establish himself and become rich, before he can even think of marriage.
