Anupama poster for sale.

Featured here is an actual surviving original vintage Bollywood poster of the cult 1966 black and white Hindi drama directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee that starred Dharmendra and Sharmila Tagore in key roles.

Produced by L.B. Lachman and released under the LB Films banner, Anupama (1966) also starred Shashikala, Deven Verma, David, Durga Khote, Tarun Bose, Dulari, Surekha Pandit & Naina in supporting roles.

Anupama (1966) won the President’s Gold Medal for All India Best Feature Film at the 1966 National Film Awards, making this original Bollywood poster, highly collectible!

The film explored the complexities of father-daughter relationships and is regarded by many as one of Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s finest works.

Printed and circulated during a subsequent release of the film in Kolkata (somewhere in the late 1960s / early 1970s), this vintage Anupama poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.

This old Bollywood poster was originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format by a movie poster design studio in Kolkata.

A striking hand drawn close up portrait of superstar Dharmendra is seen on the right, illustrated in red. Actress Sharmila Tagore who plays his daughter is seen alongside in a waist sized drawing wearing a saree and holding on to a clutch purse. The portrait uses a mix of yellow and red to create an eccentric result.

A shade of yellow along with dark texture strokes are used in the background of this old hand drawn Bollywood poster. A red frame is seen encasing the entire poster, making the illustration stand out.

Typography used in this original Anupama poster is primarily in English, with the title seen translated both in Bengali as well as Devanagari Hindi .

The soundtrack album of Anupama (1966) was composed by legendary music composer Hemant Kumar, while lyrics were written by Kaifi Azmi. One of the tracks from the film, “Dheere Dheere Machal” sung by melody queen Lata Mangeshkar became very popular at the time of the film’s release.
