Geeta Mera Naam
Highly collectible, hand drawn old Hindi film poster of the hit Bollywood movie Geeta Mera Naam (1974) for sale.
This is an actual surviving old poster of the 1974 Hindi film that featured actress Sadhana Shivdasani in a double role opposite Feroz Khan and Sunil Dutt.
Produced by R. K. Nayyar, Geeta Mera Naam was directed by his wife, Sadhana Shivdasani. The film also starred Helen, Rajendra Nath, Ramesh Deo, Achala Sachdev, Agha, Keshto Mukerjee and Junior Mehmood in supporting roles.
Printed and circulated during the release of the film, this hand drawn old Hindi film poster was originally designed for publicity of the movie but never ended up being used.
Geeta Mera Naam is responsible for reviving the career of Sunil Dutt, whose acting career was at a standstill before this film was released. His role as a villain in the film won him mass appeal.
This old film poster displays a dramatic scene where the actress is trying to rescue the hero of the film from burning flames (portraying the hero as weak and helpless whereas the woman is shown holding a knife and wielding power).
Very few hand drawn old Hindi film posters featured women in the driver’s seat of action, while the male protagonist appears helpless waiting to be rescued, making this rare gem a highly collectible piece.
Geetaa Mera Naam (1974) tells the story of four children who are separated at a fair and unknowingly reunite years later – a popular theme that was explored in several other films in Indian cinema. The soundtrack album of the film was composed by hit duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal while songs were sung by Lata Mangeshkar, Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhosle.
