Chambal Ka Badshah
Old school Bollywood poster of the Hindi film Chambal Ka Badshah (1986) for sale.
Featured here is an actual surviving old Bollywood poster for sale of the 1986 Hindi movie Chambal Ka Badshah. Directed by S. Dinesh, the film starred Danny Denzongpa and Raj Kiran in lead roles.
Printed and circulated a few years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the late 1980s), this old school Bollywood poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
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.
Danny Denzongpa is seen prominently in a bandit avatar. At the bottom, lead couple Raj Kiran and Sapna are seen in quirky avatars in a dancing pose taken from one of the songs in the film. The faces of the stars are painted in yellow, similar to “The Simpsons.” This old school Bollywood poster features a stunning use of bright shades, giving it a very eye catching appearance.
