Vintage Bollywood poster for sale of the old Hindi film Doctor (1941).
This is an actual surviving vintage Bollywood poster for sale of the 1941 Hindi movie Doctor that was produced by New Theatres, Calcutta and directed by Subodh Mitter.
The film starred music director, singer and actor Pankaj Mullick in the lead role. Pankaj Mullick was a pioneer who is credited with the advent of playback singing in Indian cinema, making this vintage Bollywood poster for sale highly collectible!
Printed and circulated during the initial release run of the film (somewhere in the 1940s), this vintage Bollywood poster for sale was printed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This vintage Bollywood poster was originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format by an art studio in Kolkata. The poster features quirky line drawn portraits of the lead actors. As was the norm with vintage Bollywood movie posters of the era, this poster has been designed and printed using only two colors (understandably to save on design and print costs).
