Vintage Bollywood poster for sale of the hit Hindi film Dream Girl (1977).
This is an actual surviving publicity poster of the 1977 film directed by Pramod Chakravorty that starred the Dream Girl of Indian cinema Hema Malini in the pivotal role. Ashok Kumar, Dharmendra and Prem Chopra also starred in the film.
Hema Malini earned the moniker of Dream Girl during her debut in 1968, which eventually inspired the title of the film.
Printed and circulated subsequent to the first release of the film (somewhere in the 1980s), this vintage Bollywood poster was originally designed for publicity of the film for a local release run in Delhi but never ended up being used.
This hand drawn Bollywood poster features a stunning rendition of the Dream Girl of Bollywood, Hema Malini in a dancing pose. The poster is set against a light blue background. A large close up portrait of actor Dharmendra is seen in the background of this Dream Girl movie poster. The quirky manner in which the faces of the stars have been painted is typical of old vintage Bollywood posters in Delhi.
The soundtrack of the film was composed by music composer duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal. The title song of the film, “Dream Girl” sung by Kishore Kumar is fondly remembered and played till today.
