Reissue Bollywood poster of the historical Hindi film, Noor Jehan (1967) for sale.
Featured here for sale is a reissue Bollywood movie poster circulated during a very recent screening of the old Hindi film Noor Jehan (1967). Printed and circulated very recently, this Bollywood poster was originally designed for publicity of a recent re-release of the film but never ended up being used.
Noor Jehan featured Meena Kumari in the lead role. Popularly known as the “Tragedy Queen of Bollywood,” Meena Kumari starred in over 90 films in her career that spanned three decades and is often remembered as the Cinderella of Indian cinema.
This Bollywood poster for sale features a stunning hand painted rendition of Meena Kumari holding a rose. A large hand panted side profile of actor Pradeep Kumar is seen in the background. The title of the film is seen in interesting 3D typography at the bottom of this reissue Bollywood poster.
Extremely rare, minimal Bollywood poster of the old Hindi film Afsana (1966) for sale.
This is an actual surviving vintage Bollywood poster of the 1966 Bollywood movie that starred Ashok Kumar, Pradeep Kumar, Padmini & Helen. Printed and circulated somewhere during the first release of the film, this movie poster is an excellent example of the minimalist movement in hand painted Bollywood poster design.
This minimal Bollywood poster was originally designed on a hand painted canvas, making it very collectible. The Bollywood poster artist has chosen a very minimalistic approach in hand painting this poster. The typography used in this poster is entirely in English except for the title translated in Devanagari Hindi & Urdu.
This poster has been marked as “Rarest of the rare” as no other copies of the same are known to exist.
This vintage Bollywood poster has been professionally restored by an expert paper archivist. It has been backed on cotton using a thorough acid-free conservation and restoration process. Minor paper loss has been adequately filled which make no noticeable difference to the display quality of the poster when seen from a viewing distance.
Afsana (Story of Love) is a 1966 Hindi film starring Ashok Kumar (fondly referred to as “Dadamuni”) – one of the most iconic and popular actors in pre-independence India. The film tells the story of a misogynist who eventually falls in love with a woman.
