Vintage Bollywood poster for sale of the old Hindi film Shagird (1967).
This is an actual surviving old hand painted Bollywood movie poster for sale of the 1967 Hindi comedy film that starred Joy Mukherjee and Saira Banu in lead roles.
Printed and circulated a few years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the late 1960s / early 1970s), this old hand painted Bollywood poster for sale was designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This old movie poster was originally hand designed in oil on canvas format by Bollywood poster painter S. Rehman. The quirky hand drawn techniques of old school Bollywood poster painters is starkly evident in this Bollywood poster painting. The printed signature of Bollywood poster painter S. Rehman is seen on the bottom of the poster – above the title. Quirky hand painted portraits of the lead actors are seen in various poses.
The poster is set against a bright yellow background, with ample use of green and blue colors for highlights, giving it a very eye catching appearance. Typical of poster painter S. Rehman’s trademark style, an actor is seen holding a pistol at the bottom of this old hand painted Bollywood poster.
Old vintage Bollywood movie poster of the hit Hindi film Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon (1963) for sale.
This is an actual poster of the 1963 romantic film written, produced and directed by Nasir Hussain.
Printed and circulated several years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the 1990s), this movie poster was originally designed 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 as well as typography are hand drawn / hand painted, which makes this poster an interesting mix of two very different design techniques.
In the poster, Joy Mukherjee is seen holding a guitar with Asha Parekh by his side in a dancing pose. The villain of the film, Pran is represented on the poster by a lazy passport styled photo pasted on the bottom. The typography of the poster is entirely in English, except for a translation of the title into Devanagari Hindi.
