This old school Bollywood poster was originally designed in oil on canvas format by a small time art studio in Kolkata, giving it a very quirky appearance. The artwork is typical of old school Bollywood posters of the past.
Dev Anand is seen prominently in the poster wearing his trademark cap in a very quirky hand drawn avatar. Sadhana appears alongside in an equally quirky hand drawn portrait.
