Quirky, hand painted old Bollywood poster of the Hindi film Kanwarlal (1988) for sale.
This is an actual surviving vintage poster of the 1988 film featuring dancing sensation Jeetendra (sometimes referred to as Jumping Jack) in the lead role. Printed and circulated during the release of the film, this hand painted old Bollywood poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This poster was originally designed on a hand drawn canvas by a small time art studio in Kolkata, making it very collectable.
The poster features a large, quirky hand drawn portrait of Jeetendra dressed in a tuxedo in an almost James Bond like avatar. The entire poster is designed and printed in a single color, i.e. blue, adding greatly to its quirk quotient. The typography used in this poster is primarily English, with the title translated both in Devanagari Hindi as well as Bengali at the bottom. On the right side of the poster, one of the popular lines from the film has been penned in Devanagari Hindi.
Kanwarlal is a1988 mediocre Bollywood film starring Jeetendra, Raj Babbar & Sujata Mehta. Jeetendra plays a corrupt politician in this Hindi film that failed to create a splash at the box office.
