This vintage hand painted Bollywood poster bears an extremely unique design that features a brilliant hand painted portrait of Baby Naaz and Ratan Kumar, set against the backdrop of a busy city street. Despair on their faces is evident, giving away the plot of the film – two children rendered homeless and left to fend for themselves on the streets. The printed signature of the artist is seen on the center right of the poster.
Boot Polish is a 1954 Hindi film directed by Prakash Arora and produced by Raj Kapoor. It won Best Film at the Filmfare Awards.
