Kapurush O Mahapurush


Extremely rare vintage Satyajit Ray movie poster of one of the finest films ever made in Bengali cinema, Kapurush O Mahapurush (1965) for sale.

Written and directed by master filmmaker Satyajit Ray, Kapurush O Mahapurush is a compilation of two separate short films based on two short stories “Janaiko Kapuruser Kahini” by Premendra Mitra (The Coward) and “Birinchibaba” by Parasuram (The Holy Man).

Music for the film Kapurush O Mahapurush was composed by Satyajit Ray himself. Kapurush O Mahapurush is believed to be Satyajit Ray’s first Bengali film to be dubbed and released in Hindi, making this rare Satyajit Ray movie poster highly collectible!

Printed and circulated during the debut release of the film (somewhere in the mid 1960s), this is one of the rarest Satyajit Ray film posters for sale that one can buy.

The critical acclaim and success of the two short films led the Academy Film Archive to preserve both Kapurush and Mahapurush in 2005.

Before venturing into film making, Satyajit Ray worked as a commercial artist. It is widely believed that he designed the original posters of quite a few of his films himself, including the beautiful poster featured here for sale.
