Yet, the confidence and determination of the days of yore were missing in the talented Anands! After the award-winning Neechanagar, Chetan Anand was without work for four years. In 1950, Dev Anand formed his production company Navketan Films, along with Chetan. Navketan introduced genuine talents like Guru Dutt, Raj Khosla, Mandi Burman and Vijay Anand. They made many memorable films like Baazi, Taxi Driver, Kalapani, Hum Dono and Guide. Says Chetan Anand’s son, Ketan Anand, “Dev Uncle was the biggest star of the 50s, 60s and early 70s.

Manoj Kumar once stated, “Devsaab’s directional debut Prem Pujari was neither for critics nor the audience. His shifting to writing and direction was Devsaab’s Waterloo. As an actor directed by his brothers he was excellent in front of the camera”. By the early 70’s, Dev and Vijay Anand fell apart after giving brilliant films like Johny Mera Naam and Tere Mere Sapne. When Vijay Anand outclassed Dev Anand as an actor in Tere Mere Sapne, the latter could not accept it. He categorically told Vijay to stick his role behind the camera. This hurt the sentimental Vijay Anand, who parted ways with his elder brother. Dev Anand was never the same as before. He did not switch over to mature characters and committed a blunder.
