Weirdest movie posters for sale: Haiwan (1977).

This is an actual surviving original vintage Bollywood poster of the 1977 Hindi musical thriller produced by S. Mukherji and directed by Ram Rano.

Haiwan (1977) starred Deb Mukherji, Prema Narayan and Nazneen in key roles. Joy Mukherji played a guest appearance in the film.

Printed and circulated during the theatrical run of the movie (somewhere in the late 1970s / early 1980s), this Haiwan movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.

This highly eccentric Bollywood poster was originally hand painted on canvas by an art studio in Delhi. A woman is seen in the mouth of a creature that resembles a wildcat. Blood is seen gushing out from her body and the fangs of the “monster,” making this one of the weirdest movie posters ever made in Bollywood.

A large illustrated close up of actor Deb Mukherji is seen on the top of this Haiwan poster. His face appears split in two parts, the left painted in a devilish palette and the right in a normal human tone. The “Jekyll and Hyde” artwork gives away the theme of the film.

The background features light hues of yellow and pink. Typography used in this Haiwan movie poster is in mixed languages, with the main title appearing in Devanagari Hindi at the bottom in a stunning yellow font. The title is seen again on the top in both English as well as in Urdu.

Haiwan was based on the story of a man suffering from PTSD who seemingly turns into a serial killer, preying on young women. Bappi Lahiri composed the soundtrack album of Haiwan. Songs like “O Humdum Jhoom Le Zara” sung by Mohammed Rafi and “Mai Haiwan Hu” sung by Bappi Lahiri became popular at the time of the film’s release.
