This vintage two sheet poster measures a stunning 60″x40″ inches in size when its two individual sheets are joined or pasted together. The poster comprises two separate single sheets, each measuring 40″x30″ inches.
Printed and circulated several years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the late 1980s), this old Hindi film two sheet poster was designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This large Bollywood poster was originally designed on a hand drawn canvas by a small time art studio in Kolkata, further increasing its collectible as well as quirk quotient.
In this old hand painted Bollywood movie poster, a large hand painted portrait of superstar Amitabh Bachchan holding a gun is seen on the center, with supporting actors Shashi Kapoor and Shatrughan Sinha on his either side. A quirky hand drawn mugshot of Sunil Dutt appears on the bottom left of the poster. Bollywood’s infamous villain, Kulbhushan Kharbanda who played the memorable character of Shakaal in the film, is seen in a quirky hand painted avatar on the bottom right of the poster. This quirky hand drawn old Hindi film poster is set against a black background with hand painted flames appearing at the back. The title of the film appears in both English as well as Devanagari Hindi.
Two sheet posters comprise two separate individual single sheet posters measuring 40″x30″ inches each. When pasted together they line up perfectly and together form one single two sheet poster. In the attached image, there may be a slight gap visible between the two – as the images of the top and bottom half have been photographed individually and then joined together digitally. When framed or pasted, there will be no gap visible between the two sheets and the appearance of the poster would be seamless – i.e. just like a single sheet poster.
Shaan is a 1980 blockbuster Hindi film directed by Ramesh Sippy (director of the epic film Sholay). Despite having an amazing star cast, the film failed to match the success of Sholay (1975). RD Burman’s music in the film however ensured that the film became a commercial success.
Songs like “Yamma Yamma”, “Pyar Karne Waale” & “Jaanu Meri Jaan” went on to become a rage throughout the nation and are still played today.
