The movie stars Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Prada, Pran, Om Prakash and Ranjeet. The film’s blockbuster music was composed by Bappi Lahiri, for which he bagged several awards. Sharaabi became a silver jubilee “Blockbuster” at the box office and went on to be another mega hit of superstar Amitabh Bachchan. This was also one of Amitabh’s last films before he temporarily gave up acting to venture into politics.

Extremely rare, original vintage Bollywood poster of the blockbuster Hindi film, Zanjeer (1973) for sale.
This is an actual surviving old Amitabh movie poster of the 1973 film that featured the greatest superstar of Indian cinema in the lead role.
Zanjeer is considered a pioneering film that represents a paradigm shift in the history of Indian cinema. It was responsible for breaking the consistent trend of romantic films in the 1970s and for steering Indian cinema towards the action genre. The film pioneered superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s new image as “The Angry Young Man” of Bollywood. The film also ended the hugely successful era of superstar Rajesh Khanna (who delivered back to back hits for several years) and paved the way for superstar Amitabh Bachchan to dominate the box office for years to come.
In summary, Zanjeer ended the struggling period for Amitabh Bachchan and turned him into the next superstar of Bollywood, making this poster highly collectible.

Pran is seen in yet another fantastic hand painted rendition on the top singing Manna Dey’s blockbuster track, “Yaari hai imaan mera.”
