Mera Naam Joker
Old Bollywood poster of the 1970 Hindi film directed by Raj Kapoor, Mera Naam Joker for sale.
This is an actual surviving vintage Bollywood poster of the 1970 film that was produced and directed by the showman of Indian cinema, Raj Kapoor.
This film, like many others released under the banner of RK Productions, starred Raj Kapoor in the lead role. In this classic, Raj Kapoor essayed the role of a circus clown who must make his audience laugh at the cost of his own sorrows. Mera Naam Joker also marked the debut of Rishi Kapoor, making this poster highly collectible.
Printed and circulated several years after the first release of the film (Late 1980s), this Mera Naam Joker movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
This Raj Kapoor film poster was originally designed on a hand painted canvas by a small time art studio in Delhi, making it highly collectable. A quirky portrait of Raj Kapoor holding the iconic Mera Naam Joker doll is seen on the bottom center of this Mera Naam Joker film poster. Close up hand painted portraits of the film’s stellar star cast of supporting actors such as Simi Garewal, Manoj Kumar, Dharmendra, Kseniya Ryabinkina & Rajendra Kumar are seen painted all around this quirky Bollywood poster.
Mera Naam Joker reportedly took six years to make and was funded by Raj Kapoor’s personal savings. The film was declared a flop at the box office but has attained cult status over the years and earned the praise of critics.
