Printed and circulated somewhere in the late 1970s during the original first release run of the film, this rare Hindi comedy poster was designed and printed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This Gol Maal movie poster was originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format. The lead actors of the film, i.e. Amol Palekar, Bindiya Goswami, Utpal Dutt and Deven Verma are seen in superbly hand painted avatars in this original Gol Maal movie poster. The background is simplistic and the focus is on the star cast. Amol Palekar is seen in two different avatars (with and sans a mustache) in this original Gol Maal movie poster, giving away the double role plot of the film.
Gol Maal (Forgery or Deception) is a 1979 blockbuster comedy film directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, starring actor Amol Palekar in a double role. The film won high accolades from critics and went on to become a cult film in the history of Indian cinema.
Considered to be the greatest comedy film ever made in Bollywood, Gol Maal’s dialogues and characters have spawned hundreds of spoofs, which are popular till today on television shows and radio stations.
Owing to its mega popularity, the film was later remade in several languages such as Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam. The 2012 Hindi film Bol Bachchan is also believed to be inspired from Gol Maal.
