Street movie poster art for sale: Geet (1970).
Featured here is an original vintage Bollywood movie poster of the old romantic Hindi musical, Geet (1970).
Directed by Ramanand Sagar, the film starred Rajendra Kumar, Mala Sinha, Kumkum and Sujit Kumar in key roles. Nasir Hussain, Manmohan Krishna, Daisy Irani, Bhagwan, Keshto Mukherjee and Tun Tun played supporting roles in the film.
Printed and circulated during the theatrical run of the film in Delhi (somewhere in the late 1970s), this street movie poster was printed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This Geet movie poster was originally hand drawn on canvas by a Bollywood poster design studio in Delhi. A stunning full length illustrated portrait of actress Mala Sinha in a dancing pose is seen in this old Bollywood poster. Rajendra Kumar appears alongside playing the flute in a realistic hand drawn rendition.
A smaller hand drawn illustration of actress Kumkum is seen at the bottom right of this street movie poster. Typography used in this Geet poster is in Devanagari Hindi with a translation of the title appearing in English as well.
The main Hindi title at the bottom uses bright contrasting shades of green and yellow in a 3D styled font to draw the viewer’s attention. Musical notes and an illustration of female dancers is seen in the background of this old Bollywood street movie poster.
The soundtrack album of Geet was composed by hit duo Kalyanji-Anandji and had some memorable songs such as “Tere Naina Kyon Bhar Aaye” sung by Lata Mangeshkar and “Jiske Sapne Humen Roj Aate Hai” sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mahendra Kapoor. The film was later remade in Telugu as Aradhana.
