Chandni Bar movie poster for sale.
This is an actual surviving original Bollywood poster of the 2001 Hindi crime drama directed by Madhur Bhandarkar. Chandni Bar (2001) starred Tabu and Atul Kulkarni in lead roles. Ananya Khare, Rajpal Yadav, Minakshi Sahani and Vishal Thakkar played supporting roles in the film.
Printed and circulated during the debut of the film in theaters (somewhere in 2001), this Chandni Bar movie poster was designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
Chandni Bar was a fictionalized story inspired by the grim realities of dance bars, prostitution and the criminal underworld in Mumbai.
The film was critically acclaimed and bagged four awards at the 49th National Film Awards, including the National Film Award for Best Film on Other Social Issues, Best Actress (Tabu), Best Supporting Actor (Atul Kulkarni) and Best Supporting Actress (Ananya Khare), making this Chandni Bar movie poster, highly collectible!
Actress Tabu is seen in a stunning close up prominently in this Bollywood poster, with her reflection appearing on a broken mirror. The scene appears to convey the shattered dreams of a bar dancer.
The title of the film appears stylized in the font of a typical dance bar signboard. It appears prominently in English with a smaller translation in Devanagari Hindi alongside. The dark theme of this Tabu poster gives away the plot of the film.
