Old Indian Hindu mythology poster of the Hindi film, Hari Darshan (1972) for sale.
This is an actual surviving publicity poster of the 1972 mythological Hindi film that featured award winning wrestler turned Bollywood actor, Dara Singh in the lead role.
Printed and circulated several years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the early 2000’s), this Indian mythological poster was printed for publicity of the re-release of the film but never ended up being used.
This hand painted poster was originally designed on a hand drawn canvas by popular Bollywood movie poster artist/painter G.R. Kareker, and bears his signature on the bottom right hand corner, making the poster highly collectible.
Devotee Prahlad is seen in the poster in a pot of boiling oil subject to an attempted assassination by his father Hiranyakasipu. Lord Vishnu, his savior is seen in the background on the top.
Hari Darshan is a 1972 Bollywood mythology movie starring Dara Singh. The story revolves around devotee Prahlad worshiping lord Vishnu.
