Baarish poster for sale.

Featured here is an actual surviving original Bollywood poster of the old 1957 black and white Hindi film directed by Shankar Mukherjee that starred Nutan and Dev Anand in lead roles.

Based on a story written by the late Gyan Mukherjee, Baarish (1957) was a crime drama that had a plot similar to the Marlon Brando movie, On the Waterfront (1954).

Printed and circulated during the first release of the film in theaters (somewhere in 1957), this Baarish poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.

This vintage movie poster was originally designed in hand painted format on canvas by one of the finest Bollywood movie poster artists of all time, V.G. Parchure of Pamart design studio. Parchure’s signature style of mastery can be seen in this superbly hand painted Bollywood poster, making this Baarish poster, highly collectible.

Nutan appeared in more than 70 Hindi films in a career spanning four decades and is regarded as one of the finest female actors in the history of Hindi cinema.

Actress Nutan is captured in a brilliant hand painted rendition in this vintage Bollywood poster. Bearing an innocent smile, she appears in a sensuous avatar wearing a saree drenched in the rains. The title of the film uses an interesting typeset comprising fine brush strokes to give it a “rainy” look to reflect the name of the film.

Artist V.G. Parchure’s original signature appears on the bottom right of this old Nutan movie poster, signed as “Pamart” – i.e. the name of his art studio.

The typography used in this poster is completely in English with the title translated into both Devanagari Hindi as well as Urdu.

The soundtrack album of Baarish (1957) was composed by C. Ramchandra, while lyrics were written by Rajendra Krishna. It featured the timeless song, “Dane Dane Pe Likha Hai Khane Wale Ka Naam” sung by C. Ramchandra himself.

“Phir Wahi Chand, Wahi Hum, Wahi Tanhai Hai” sung by C. Ramchandra & Lata Mangeshkar, “Surat Ho To Aisi Ho” sung by C. Ramchandra, Talat Mahmood, Mohammed Rafi & Francis Vaz and “Hum To Jaani Pyar Karega, Nahin Darega, Nahin Darega” sung by C. Ramchandra & Asha Bhosle became very popular during the film’s release.
