Reissue Bollywood poster of the Raj Kapoor cult classic, Sangam (1964) for sale.
Featured here for sale is a recent reissue Bollywood poster of the super hit Hindi film Sangam, directed and produced by the Showman of Indian cinema Raj Kapoor, featuring him in a leading role opposite Vyjayanthimala. The love triangle also starred Rajendra Kumar.
Released in Technicolor, Sangam was Raj Kapoor’s first color film, and is considered one of his finest.
Printed and circulated somewhere in the early 2000s, this reissue Bollywood movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the recent re-release of the film but never ended up being used.
Raj Kapoor is seen prominently playing the accordion on the left. A beautiful still photo of actress Vyjayanthimala appears alongside. Rajendra Kumar is seen in a smaller still on the top.
The poster capitalizes on the two Filmfare awards (Best Director & Best Actress) bagged by the film with an announcement on the top.
The magnum opus spared no expense in its shoot, with many scenes shot in exotic foreign locations such as Venice, Paris, and Switzerland. Sangam is credited with starting the trend of shooting expensive song sequences in foreign locations outside India.
The music album of the film was a blockbuster. Songs like “Bol Radha Bol,” “Dost Dost Na Raha,” “Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega,” “Yeh Mera Prem Patra,” “Main Kya Karoon Ram” are fondly remembered and played till date.
