Old Amitabh movie poster for sale of the hit Hindi film Majboor (1974).
This is an actual surviving vintage Bollywood poster for sale of the 1974 crime drama that starred the greatest superstar in Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.
Printed and circulated during the first release of the film (mid 1970s), this old Amitabh movie poster was designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This old Amitabh movie poster was originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format by leading Bollywood poster painter Shrikant and bears his printed signature on the bottom right hand corner.
Superstar Amitabh Bachchan is brilliantly captured in a stunning full length hand painted portrait in this vintage Bollywood poster. Smaller hand painted portraits of Pran (seen smoking a cigarette) and Parveen Babi appear at the bottom of this old Amitabh movie poster. A black and white still photograph of Farida Jalal on a wheelchair is seen copy pasted at the bottom.
Majboor was a remake of an American film called Zig Zag (1970). Directed by Ravi Tandon, the film was written by the greatest screenplay writer duo of Bollywood, Salim-Javed. The movie starred Amitabh Bachchan, Parveen Babi, Pran and Farida Jalal in prominent roles.
