I have filter in separate view and want to pass the value to another view and get the filter result in Drupal.

Scenario: I have two views, one for filter and another for filter result.

I want to filter based the content: title. In another view I have to fetch the result and display based on title filter.

My question: How can I argument from one view to another view?

Here is how you can do it programmatically:

// load and display view A
$view_A = views_get_view('view_A_name');
// execute view
// get all nids from the result 
foreach ($view_A->result as $result) {
   // capture the result of your field in an array. 
   $values[] = $result->field_machine_name; 
// render view
print $view_A->render();

// now load view B
$view_B = views_get_view('view_B_name');
// set arguments for view
$view_B->set_arguments(array(implode(",", $values)));
// execute view
// render view
print $view_B->render();

Use Views Field View module

There are a lot of cases in views where you want to embed a list inside each row. One example could be, you have a list of groups, and for each groups you want to list the first and last name of all of their members.

This can be achieved with this module, as views_field_view allows you to embed one view into another view and pass arguments along.

And Also if You are developer and you want to achieve it programmatically you can use views_get_view function.
