Old Indian movie poster of the classic Hindi & Bengali film, Amanush (1975) for sale.
This is an actual surviving vintage publicity poster of the award winning 1975 film that featured Sharmila Tagore and Uttam Kumar in lead roles.
Printed and circulated a few years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the late 1970s), this old Bengali movie poster was printed for publicity of the Bengali release of the film but never ended up being used.
Amanush when released in Bengali, became a massive hit among the local Bengali speaking population, making this poster highly collectible.
This poster was originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format by a small time art studio in Kolkata. The design of this hand drawn old Bengali film poster captures lead actor Uttam Kumar in a large portrait whereas Sharmila Tagore appears in a smaller avatar at the bottom.
