Hand painted vintage Bollywood movie poster of the hit Hindi horror film Jaani Dushman (1979) for sale.
This is an actual surviving poster of the 1979 Bollywood horror film that featured the largest multi-starrer cast for any horror movie ever made in Bollywood.
Printed and circulated several years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the late 1980s), this movie poster was printed for publicity of the re-release of the film in the 1980s but never ended up being used.
This Bollywood horror movie poster was originally designed on a hand painted canvas giving it a very quirky, vintage appearance.
In the poster, a large hand painted figure of the monster with blood dripping from its teeth is depicted on the left. Key protagonists from the film’s multi-starrer cast are painted alongside on the right. Typography used in the poster is primarily in English with the title translated in Devanagari Hindi as well.
Jaani Dushman (Enemy of Life) is a 1979 Bollywood popular horror film with a huge starcast that comprised some of the biggest stars in Bollywood at the time. The film was initially banned by censors but later released with an A-certificate.
This is a landmark film in that it comprises the largest ever multi-starrer cast used in a Hindi horror movie – the only example of its kind ever made in Indian cinema.
