Old Bollywood poster for sale of the blockbuster Hindi film, Namak Halaal (1982).
This is an actual surviving vintage Bollywood poster for sale of the 1982 super hit that featured the greatest superstar of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role. Shashi Kapoor, Smita Patil, Parveen Babi, Waheeda Rehman, Om Prakash and Ranjeet also starred in the film.
Printed and circulated subsequent to the first release of the film (somewhere in the late 1980s), this old Amitabh movie poster was originally designed for publicity of the film but never ended up being used.
Namak Halaal was a blockbuster at the box office and went on to be a golden jubilee hit, making this old Amitabh movie poster highly collectible!
This old Amitabh movie poster features stunning photographic artwork. Owing to the phenomenal success of the soundtrack of the film, the poster features stills from two cult songs, “Thodi Si Jo Pee Li Hai” and “Jawani Janeman Haseen Dilruba.” Superstar Amitabh Bachchan and Smita Patil are seen prominently on the top half of the poster in a romantic pose. Smaller faces of Shashi Kapoor and Parveen Babi are seen at the bottom of this Amitabh Bachchan poster.
Owing to its phenomenal success, Namak Halaal was remade in both Tamil and Telugu. Music composed by Bappi Lahiri for the film was a stellar success. Songs such as “Aaj Rapat Jaayen” sung by Kishore Kumar & Asha Bhosle, “Jawani Janeman Haseen Dilruba” sung by Asha Bhosle, “Pag Ghungroo Baandh Meera Nachi Thi” sung by Kishore Kumar, “Raat Baaki Baat Baaki” sung by Bappi Lahiri and Asha Bhosle and “Thodi Si Jo Pee Li Hai” sung by Kishore Kumar are fondly remembered and played till today.
