Highly collectible, very rare surviving vintage Bollywood poster of the hit Hindi film Ram Balram (1980) for sale.
This is an actual surviving six sheet poster of the 1980 film that featured two of the biggest superstars in Indian cinema of the time, Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra.
Printed and circulated during the initial release of the film, this old Bollywood poster for sale was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This fabulous six sheet poster measures a stunning 120″x60″ inches (approx) in size when its six individual sheets are joined or pasted together. The poster comprises six separate single sheets, each measuring 40″x30″ inches. When pasted together they line up perfectly and together form one single six sheet poster. As shown in the photograph, there may be a slight gap visible between the six sheets – as the images have been photographed individually and then joined together digitally. When framed or pasted, there will be no gap visible between the six sheets and the appearance of the poster would be seamless – i.e. just like a single sheet poster.
This poster was originally designed on a hand painted canvas by the greatest and highest paid Bollywood movie poster artist of all time, Diwakar Karkare, making it highly collectible. The poster bears the original signature of Diwakar on the bottom left corner.
This beautiful Amitabh Bachchan old movie poster was designed by the most sought after Bollywood movie poster artist in the country. It features highly accurate hand painted renditions of the two key characters in the film – angry young man Amitabh Bachchan and the most handsome Bollywood actor of the time, Dharmendra.
Released in 1980, Ram Balram starred Dharmendra as “Ram” and Amitabh Bachchan as “Balram.” Zeenat Aman and Rekha were paired opposite the two, while Ajit, Amjad Khan and Prem Chopra were cast as villains in the film. The film marked the third successful venture of Bollywood’s biggest superstars of the time, Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra, who previously were seen in Chupke Chupke and the cult classic, Sholay.
