Beautiful hand painted old Indian movie poster of Geet Gaata Chal (1975) for sale.
This is an actual surviving old movie poster of the 1975 romantic hit that featured Sachin and Sarika in lead roles.
Very few old Indian movie posters were designed in a horizontal/landscape format, making this poster incredibly rare and highly collectible!
Printed and circulated during the first release of the film (somewhere in the mid 1970s), this old hand painted Indian movie 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 one of the most sought after Hindi film poster artists/painters, C. Mohan, making it highly collectible. The poster bears the signature style of C. Mohan’s mastery, with superbly hand drawn portraits of the lead actors.
Artist C. Mohan’s original signature appears on the bottom right of the poster. The typography used in this poster is entirely in Devanagari Hindi, except for a translation of the title in English on the top right hand corner.
A fantastic large portrait of the lead actor playing a flute is seen on the center of this vintage movie poster. He appears serenading his lady love who is depicted on the right hand corner in a somewhat shy pose. Musical waves and notes are seen traveling from the flute into the background. The lead actor is seen wearing a chain around his neck, which seems almost as if sketched with a pen.
Geet Gaata Chal (Keep singing this song) is a 1975 hit Hindi film starring Sachin, Sarika, Madan Puri, Padma Khanna and Leela Mishra. Geet Gaata Chal was a big success for its lead actors as well as music director Ravindra Jain, who composed memorable songs for the film.
