Old Bollywood movie poster for sale of the classic Hindi film Parivaar 1987.
This is an actual surviving old Bollywood poster for sale of the 1987 Hindi film that starred Mithun Chakraborty and Meenakshi Sheshadri in lead roles.
The film also featured two animal stars, wonder dog Jaani and monkey Savithri!
Printed and circulated during the initial release run of the film (somewhere in the late 1980s), this Mithun Chakraborty movie poster was designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This Mithun movie poster was originally hand painted on canvas by a leading poster design studio in Bombay.
Interestingly, instead of using portraits of the stars, the Bollywood poster artist has chosen to highlight the two animal actors from the film.
Monkey Savithri who plays the role of Bajrangi in the film is seen riding on top of wonder dog Jaani who played the role of Bahadur. The monkey is seen flashing a victory sign in this obscure Bollywood poster.
This is an extremely rare instance in Indian cinematic history where two animal actors have been chosen as the stars of the Bollywood poster, making this obscure Bollywood poster highly collectible!
The hero of the film, Mithun Chakraborty finds mention in this old Bollywood poster only in text at the bottom. The title of the film is seen in stunning 3D typography, with an announcement on the top that declares the film as Super Hit.
