Barsaat poster for sale.

Featured here is an original vintage Bollywood poster of the 1949 classic black and white Hindi film directed by the “Showman of Indian cinema” Raj Kapoor, which featured him in the lead role opposite Nargis. The film also marked the debut of actress Nimmi.

Barsaat (1949) was one of the first major hits directed by Raj Kapoor. Following the success of Barsaat, Raj Kapoor purchased the iconic RK Studios in 1950, making this old Bollywood poster, highly collectible!

Printed and circulated during the theatrical run of the film (somewhere in the 1950s), this vintage Barsaat poster was designed for publicity of the movie but never ended up being used.

Originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format by master portrait artist S. M. Pandit (the most highly acclaimed and sought after portrait artist in India of his time), this Raj Kapoor poster features stunning artwork.

Showcasing the signature realism of SM Pandit’s portrait paintings, Raj Kapoor and Nargis are seen in a beautiful romantic pose set against a striking red background. Such was the appeal of SM Pandit’s fine artwork in this Barsaat 1949 movie poster that it went on to inspire the iconic R K Studios logo.

Much more than just a poster, this rare Barsaat poster is an icon of Indian cinema!

Barsaat (1949) is one among several films to feature the super hit duo of Raj Kapoor and Nargis. The film is fondly remembered till today for its super hit music, which was composed by debutante music directors Shankar Jaikishan. Barsaat (1949) established their careers as India’s finest music directors in the years to come.

The album contained unforgettable classics such as “Hawa Mein Udta Jaye,” “Jiya Beqarar Hai” and “Barsaat Mein Humse Mile” sung by Lata Mangeshkar. “Patli Kamar Hai” sung by Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar was another very popular track from the film.
