Jagte Raho movie poster for sale.

Featured here is an actual surviving original Yugoslavian publicity poster of the old 1956 black and white Bollywood film produced by and starring the greatest entertainer of all time in Indian cinema, Raj Kapoor (also known as The Show Man of Indian cinema).

Written by Khwaja Ahmad Abbas and directed by Amit Maitra and Sombhu Mitra, Jagte Raho (1956) was also released in Bengali as Ek Din Raatre. It was the last Raj Kapoor film to feature Nargis, who made a special appearance in the song “Jaago Mohan Pyaare” sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

Raj Kapoor became a superstar in the Soviet Union after the release of his first film Awaara (1951) dubbed in Russian as “Bradagya.” Thanks to his already established popularity, Jagte Raho (1956) was a blockbuster at the Soviet box office, with 33.6 million tickets sold.

Distributed by R.K. Films, Jagte Raho (1956) won the prestigious Certificate of Merit at the National Film Awards, making this old Jagte Raho movie poster, highly collectible!

This extremely unique publicity poster was designed and printed in Yugoslavia for publicity of Jagte Raho exclusively in Yugoslavian theaters.

The unique hand painted artwork seen in this old Bollywood movie poster was designed exclusively for the film’s promotion inside Yugoslavian theaters and was only used in Yugoslavia, making it truly one-of-a-kind and highly collectible.

This old Raj Kapoor film poster was printed and circulated during the original first release of the film in Yugoslavia (1960s). This was the official promotional poster designed and printed for publicity of the film in Yugoslavian theaters somewhere in the 1960s but never ended up being used.

For a nation that witnessed relentless NATO bombing and conflicts, its an absolute miracle that this Yugoslavian Raj Kapoor movie poster has survived intact!

In summary, featured here for sale is an almost impossible to find original Yugoslavian Raj Kapoor Bollywood movie poster!

This old hand painted Bollywood film poster bears an extremely unique design that features a brilliant hand painted portrait of Raj Kapoor set inside a city building. The poster was originally designed on a hand painted canvas by a Yugoslavian poster artist. In the poster, the artist has tried to subtly capture the essence of the plot of the film – A poor villager (Raj Kapoor) finds himself struggling to survive the harsh and indifferent city life.

Jagte Raho (1956) won the Crystal Globe Grand Prix award at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in Czechoslovakia in 1957, which is announted on the top of this vintage movie poster.

The soundtrack album of Jagte Raho (1956) was composed by Salil Choudhary, while lyrics were penned by Shailendra and Prem Dhawan. It featured the timeless classic, “Zindagi Khwab Hai, Khwab Me Jhuth Kya Aur Bhala Sach Hai Kya” sung by Mukesh. “Main Koi Jhoot Boleya” sung by Mohammed Rafi and S. Balbir was another popular song from the film.
