Old Bollywood movie poster of the cult Hindi film, Agneepath (1990) for sale.
This is an actual surviving vintage Bollywood poster of the 1990 cult film that featured the greatest superstar of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role.
Amitabh Bachchan and Mithun Chakraborty received the National Film Award for Best Actor and Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award respectively for their performances in this action drama, making this poster highly collectible!
Printed and circulated a few years after the first release of the film (mid 1990s), this vintage Bollywood movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This Amitabh Bachchan poster features a rare combination of both photographic as well as hand painted artwork. A large photographic close up of Amitabh together with a smaller full length photo of his appear on the top of this poster. Amitabh is seen holding a sword in a still taken from the climax of the film. Faces of Danny and Mithun are seen hand painted at the bottom holding machine guns. Smaller still photos of Tinnu Anand and actress Neelam are also seen amidst the hand painted flames in this Agneepath poster.
Agneepath is a 1990 action packed Bollywood movie starring Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role as “Godfather” Vijay Deenanath Chauhan and Danny Denzongpa as the villain, Kancha Cheena. The film’s initial failure at the box office was attributed largely to Amitabh Bachchan’s experimentation with his voice, which many believed to be inspired by Marlon Brando’s style of speaking in The Godfather.
The cult success of the film led Karan Johar to remake the film in 2012 with the same title as a tribute to his father Yash Johar (who produced the original 1990 flick). The film was also remade in Tamil as Sivasakthi, starring Sathyaraj and Prabhu Ganesan directed by Suresh Krissna.
