Bollywood movie poster of the super hit romantic Hindi film, Suraj (1966) for sale.
This is an actual surviving publicity poster of the 1966 film that featured Vyjayanthimala and Rajendra Kumar in lead roles.
Suraj featured the hit Mohammed Rafi song, “Baharon phool barsao,” which is fondly remembered till today.
Printed and circulated several years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the 1990s), this movie poster was printed for publicity of the re-release of the film but never ended up being used.
This poster was originally designed by cutting out images of actors from separate still photographs (shot on set location) and pasting them on a board. The background and typography are hand drawn / hand painted, which makes this poster an interesting mix of two very different design techniques.
