Geet Gaata Chal
Beautiful hand painted old Bollywood poster of the hit Hindi film, Geet Gaata Chal (1975) for sale.
This is an actual surviving vintage Bollywood poster of the 1975 romantic film that featured Sachin and Sarika in lead roles.
Printed and circulated during the first release of the film (somewhere in the mid 1970s), this vintage Indian cinema poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This poster was originally designed on a hand drawn canvas by one of the most sought after Bollywood poster artists/painters, C. Mohan, making it highly collectible. The poster bears the tell-tale marks of C. Mohan’s flamboyance, with its picturesque orange red background and superbly drawn portraits of the lead actors.
Artist C. Mohan’s original signature appears on the bottom left of the poster. The typography used in this poster is entirely in Devanagari Hindi, except for a translation of the title in English at the bottom.
The lead actor is seen playing a flute in the foreground, serenading his lady love who appears in the background wearing a traditional red wedding saree. Musical waves and notes are seen traveling from the flute into the background, which is accentuated by a beautiful sunset.
Geet Gaata Chal (Keep singing this song) is a 1975 hit Hindi film starring Sachin, Sarika, Madan Puri, Padma Khanna and Leela Mishra. Geet Gaata Chal was a big success for its lead actors as well as music director Ravindra Jain, who composed memorable songs for the film.
