Badla Nagin Ka
Vintage Bollywood poster for sale of the old Hindi film, Badla Nagin Ka (1987).
This is an actual surviving Bollywood movie poster for sale of the 1987 fantasy Hindi film directed by M. Shankar which starred Jivita, Shalini, Padmini and Rajiv in lead roles.
Printed and circulated during the first release run of the film (late 1980s), this very rare vintage Bollywood poster for sale was designed and printed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
The film’s plot hinged around the story of a revenge seeking woman who turns into a serpent. The lead actress is seen prominently in this poster doing the infamous “Nagin dance,” i.e. serpent dance. Originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format by an art studio in Kolkata, this vintage Bollywood poster for sale features quirky hand drawn renditions of the lead characters of the film. A large portrait of a cobra is seen in the background of the dancing woman. The bottom of this hand drawn poster shows smaller figures of a snake charmer and an actor holding a gun.
This Bollywood movie poster for sale is a two sheeter. Two sheet posters comprise two separate individual single sheet posters measuring approximately 40″x30″ inches each. When pasted together they line up perfectly and together form one single two sheet poster. In the image provided, there may be a slight gap visible between the two – as the images of the top and bottom half have been photographed individually and then joined together digitally. When framed or pasted, there will be no gap visible between the two sheets and the appearance of the poster would be seamless – i.e. just like a single sheet poster.
