Vintage Bollywood poster for sale of the old Hindi film Katha (1983).

This is an actual surviving vintage Bollywood movie poster for sale of the 1983 Hindi film directed by award winning filmmaker Sai Paranjpye that starred Naseeruddin Shah, Farooq Sheikh & Deepti Naval in lead roles.

Katha was a beautiful adaptation of the classic Indian folklore of the hare and the tortoise. The film was based on the Marathi play ‘Sasa aani Kasav’ (Hare and Tortoise) featuring Naseeruddin Shah as the tortoise and Farooq Sheikh as the hare.

The film was a critical success much like Sai Paranjpye’s other films, making this vintage Bollywood poster highly collectible!

Printed and circulated during the original first release of the film (somewhere in the early 1980s), this vintage Bollywood poster was printed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.

This vintage Bollywood poster was originally designed as a photographic collage on a board, giving it a pop art feel. Still photos of the two lead stars, Naseeruddin Shah (the tortoise) and Farooq Sheikh (the hare) are seen against a beautiful yellow background.
