Old vintage Bollywood movie poster of the Hindi film Kasauti (1974) for sale.
This is an actual surviving publicity poster of the 1974 Hindi film that featured the greatest superstar of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role opposite Dreamgirl Hema Malini.
Printed and circulated a few years after the first release of the film (somewhere in the late 1970s), this movie poster was printed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This poster was originally designed by cutting out images of actors from separate still photographs (shot on set location) and pasting them on a board. The background and typography are hand drawn / hand painted, which makes this poster an interesting mix of two very different design techniques.
The vintage movie poster features a still photo of Dreamgirl Hema Malini wearing a suit and a hat. A large cut out face of Amitabh Bachchan appears alongside. Pran is also seen in a still photo paste at the bottom.
Kasauti is a 1974 Bollywood film directed by Aravind Sen, starring Dreamgirl Hema Malini and superstar Amitabh Bachchan. Pran played a pivotal supporting role in the film and is fondly remembered for the song “Hum Bolega To Bologe Ki Bolta Hai” sung by Kishore Kumar which went on to become a rage throughout the nation.
