Vintage Bollywood poster for sale of the old Hindi film Katha (1983).
This is an actual surviving vintage Bollywood movie poster for sale of the 1983 Hindi film directed by award winning filmmaker Sai Paranjpye that starred Naseeruddin Shah, Farooq Sheikh & Deepti Naval in lead roles.
Katha was a beautiful adaptation of the classic Indian folklore of the hare and the tortoise. The film was based on the Marathi play ‘Sasa aani Kasav’ (Hare and Tortoise) featuring Naseeruddin Shah as the tortoise and Farooq Sheikh as the hare.
The film was a critical success much like Sai Paranjpye’s other films, making this vintage Bollywood poster highly collectible!
Printed and circulated during the original first release of the film (somewhere in the early 1980s), this vintage Bollywood poster was printed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This vintage Bollywood poster was originally designed as a photographic collage on a board, giving it a pop art feel. Still photos of the two lead stars, Naseeruddin Shah (the tortoise) and Farooq Sheikh (the hare) are seen against a beautiful yellow background.
Old Bollywood poster for sale of the cult Hindi comedy Chashme Buddoor (1981) for sale.

Printed and circulated a few years after the first release of the film (mid 1980s), this Chashme Buddoor movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This old Bollywood poster for sale was originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format by an art studio in Delhi. The printed signature of Bollywood poster painter O.P. Bangali is seen on the bottom right hand corner of this Chashme Buddoor movie poster.
A simple but beautiful hand painted portrait of lead actors Farooq Sheikh and Deepti Naval is seen prominently in this Chashme Buddoor movie poster. The poster is set against a minimal plain white background with typography appearing at the bottom in red.
Chashme Buddoor was a silver jubilee hit and is counted as a memorable film in the history of Indian cinema. The success of the film spawned two subsequent remakes in Malayalam and Hindi respectively. A couple of songs from the film,”Kahan Se Aaye Badra” and “Kali Ghori Dwar Khari” became instant hits due to their unique lyrics and classical style composition.
