Vintage Bollywood poster for sale of the hit Hindi film Night in London (1967).
This is an actual surviving old Bollywood poster for sale of the 1967 thriller that featured Biswajeet and Mala Sinha in lead roles. Helen, Johnny Walker and Anwar Hussain also played supporting roles in the film.
Printed and circulated during the original first release of the film (somewhere in the mid 1960s), this vintage Bollywood poster was printed 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 one of the best Bollywood poster painters of his time, V.G. Parchure. The printed signature of Bollywood poster artist V.G. Parchure is seen in the name of his art studio, i.e. “Pamart” on the bottom left of the poster.
In this superbly hand painted Night in London Bollywood poster, artist V.G. Parchure’s mastery over the paintbrush is strikingly apparent. Actress Mala Sinha is seen in a stunningly realistic portrait holding a pistol in her hand. A large close up portrait of actor Biswajeet is seen blending in the background. The bottom of this Night in London Bollywood poster features Helen dancing to the iconic cabaret song “Mera Naam Hai Jameela.” A flying helicopter in the background of this Night in London Bollywood poster gives away the thriller plot of the film.
Night in London featured a successful soundtrack composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal, with lyrics penned by Anand Bakshi. Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammed Rafi sang memorable songs in the film.
