Karz movie poster for sale.
Featured here is an original Bollywood movie poster of the cult Hindi reincarnation thriller, Karz (1980).
Directed by Subhash Ghai, Karz starred Rishi Kapoor, Tina Munim and Simi Garewal in pivotal roles.
Printed and circulated during the release of the film in theaters (somewhere in the 1980s), this Karz movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
Karz has attained cult status over the decades. The film is fondly remembered for its unforgettable music composed by duo Laxmikant Pyarelal, who went on to win the Filmfare Best Music Director Award for the film.
Songs like “Ek Haseena Thi” and “Om Shanti Om” sung by Kishore Kumar and “Dard-E-Dil” by Mohammed Rafi became instant chart toppers on the film’s album release. The music, in particular the film’s unforgettable background score, started a new wave in the disco movement in India, making this hand drawn Bollywood poster, highly collectible.
This vintage Karz movie poster was originally designed in hand drawn oil on canvas format by an art studio in Delhi. Lead couple Rishi Kapoor and Tina Munim are seen in a romantic embrace in a large hand drawn illustration at the center. The two appear again in the background on the top in a caricature styled drawing. Tina Munim is seen dancing, while Rishi Kapoor is playing the guitar.
The title of this old Bollywood poster appears in English in a stunning red font at the bottom. A translation of the title in Devanagari Hindi is seen in white on the top right of this Karz movie poster.
Karz is one among many films made in Indian cinema on the subject of reincarnation or rebirth. The film was reportedly inspired from “The Reincarnation of Peter Proud (1975). In 2008, a remake of the film was released titled “Karzzzz,” which starred singer and music composer Himesh Reshammiya.
