Hand drawn Bollywood poster for sale of the Hindi film, Amar (1954).
This is an actual surviving vintage Bollywood poster for sale of the 1954 black and white Hindi film that was directed by legendary filmmaker Mehboob Khan.
Amar starred two of the biggest superstars of Bollywood – the Tragedy King of Indian cinema Dilip Kumar along with the Marilyn Monroe of Indian cinema, Madhubala. The film also starred actress Nimmi.
This vintage Bollywood poster was designed and printed for publicity of the film a few years after its original first release (somewhere in the 1960s).
This old Bollywood poster for sale was originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format by a poster art studio in Delhi. Quirky hand drawn artwork that is typical of vintage Bollywood design is seen in this old movie poster for sale.
A large hand drawn portrait of actress Nimmi is seen on the top. Smaller quirky portraits of Madhubala and Dilip Kumar are seen below. The title of the film appears in a striking red font against a white background at the bottom.
