Old hand drawn Bollywood film poster of the hit Hindi movie, Jewel Thief (1967) for sale.
This is an actual surviving vintage Bollywood poster of the 1967 James Bond style spy thriller that featured the evergreen superstar of Indian cinema, Dev Anand in the lead role. Vyjayantimala and Ashok Kumar also played memorable roles in the film.
Printed and circulated a few years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the 1970s), this old Bollywood movie poster was printed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This vintage Bollywood poster was originally designed on a hand painted canvas by poster artist BR Gulati at an art studio in Delhi, giving it a quirky appearance. A large hand painted portrait of Dev Anand is seen prominently at the center. Ashok Kumar appears in a smaller hand painted avatar at the bottom. Vyjayantimala is seen in a photographic still alongside.
The film’s soundtrack composed by S. D. Burman includes chartbusters such as “Yeh Dil Na Hota Bechara” and “Hothon Mein Aisi Baat” which are played till today.
